  1. Pete posted pictures of installing a macerator system. It's under Alternate Sewer Hose System dated June 22, 2009. Good luck with installing it. Pam
  2. We live in Northern CA and bought our Oliver in 2008. We have only taken it to a RV service center once for a repair on the refrigerator and it was covered by the refrigerator warranty and Oliver. Ours was delivered to us in CA because we were unable to go to Tennessee. It would have been nice if we had been able to pick it up at the factory because there was a couple minor issues and a learning curve that we could have dealt with there. Oliver authorized work to be done on the minor issues but we fixed them ourselves. They are a great company to deal with even from this distance. I wouldn't let the distance stop me from buying one of these gems. Pam
  3. We have constant problems with mice getting in our vehicles and was concerned that we would have the same problem with the Oliver. The seven years we have had our Oliver we have not seen any sign of mice getting in it. Pam
  4. Been looking at the Parkit 360 to help us maneuver our trailer into a space beside the garage. See that Sherry and Paul purchased one almost a year ago and am looking for a hopefully positive review. Any recommendations from others would be helpful. There is also a Trailer Valet that looked promising at first but it hooks to the frame which isn't possible with the Oliver. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you, Pam
  5. We put up one of those inexpensive carports with a canopy top. It cost about $300 and the canopy lasted five years and we replaced it for $50.00. We are in Northern CA and this has worked well for us. We get no snow and use to get lots of rain. I keep a product like DampRid in it and the tires covered. We also keep it plugged on all the time and as we have been on able to travel for quite some time we test everything monthly to make sure everything is still working properly. It's located on a graveled area. Good luck finding the best solution for your new trailer. Pam
  6. It is a magical place Pete. We are fortunate to live under these beautiful redwoods, although, stormy windy weather remind us that one may fall on our house at anytime. We have been unable to travel due to caring for parents but being grounded to this area is fine as it is so beautiful. I try to look at the beauty around me everyday and appreciate it. I am so glad you were able to enjoy the area. In a few years we hope to travel the US and take in the beauty that each state offers. I look forward to following your adventures. Pam
  7. I very much enjoyed looking through your blog posts tonight Pete. You have wonderful photos. I see that in Oct. of 2008 you stayed at Jedediah Smith State Park in Northern California. We live about three miles from the park and had just purchased our Oliver in Aug. of 2008. Small world. Thank you for the great posts. Pam
  8. Where are you located Dave? We have a 2008 Oliver and live in Crescent City, CA and I think someone still has one in Sacramento. We have no issues with the height; but my husband is 5'8". They are a wonderful little trailer. Pam
  9. We don't have the King Dome in ours because like you we didn't want to set up an account. A lot of campgrounds have regular cable hook ups. The cable outlet is on the outside near the back bumper. You just have to make sure it is hooked up to the TV. All the cables were already run in ours so it was easy to hook up to the TV. We like to rent movies now and then while camping also. Of course, technology is also changing and leaving me behind. Not sure about other states but in CA we have to have a black box for each TV so we can no longer just hook our TV's directly to the cable outlet so I'm not sure if that's an issue in campgrounds. A two month trip sounds wonderful. Pam
  10. We have two of those utility pop-up containers. The small one we keep in the bath room next to the toilet and the larger one we put under the small table. It's small enough that it isn't in our way when setting there. We also store things in collapsable baskets that slide under our bed. Camping World has a great selection of items that help you better utilize space in RV's. Pam
  11. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Pam and Allen
  12. No experience with other fiberglass trailers but we tow our 17' Oliver with a 2008 Avalanche. It tows beautifully. Our gas mileage doesn't change when we are towing; we get 18 mpg. We do a lot of back road driving though so we're seldom driving very fast. Would image the 22' Oliver tows just as nicely. Pam
  13. Thank you to all of you that have helped to keep the Forum up and running. Pam
  14. I love the inside layout. Thanks for posting the pictures. I don't think any of us ever get tired of seeing photos of Oliver's. Pam
  15. When the tail gunner yells to circle the wagons everyone else will wish they had your Oliver. I looked at the website and that looks like a great trip. You are going to have a great time. Pam
