  1. All I can add is this: A good and trusted friend of mine owns an RV repair and service business and has been doing it for many, many years. When I came to him asking about our first purchase, I explained and showed him the literature on the Olivers. He was in fact at the time working on an Airstream. He HATES them. He said that the beauty of an Airstream is "skin deep" and even that's questionable. He showed me the interior of the walls construction which was abysmal. When I finally took delivery of our Oliver, I had him come over and inspect it and to say he was impressed is
  2. We were just a few miles south of you on that same day at Holden Beach, NC. In fact, on the 23rd, we drove over to Hampstead, NC (Surf City) to look at a new home my son and wife are purchasing. They're relocating from VA to coastal Carolina. Not my cup of tea of a place to live but nice to visit.
  3. Great topic but the level of comments and detail is dizzying. Can some simply provide me with just the proper part #s for the Timken bearings, seals, & races or otherwise a part # for a complete kit? Thanks, Hobo
  4. Thanks for that. Good to know even if I don't envision ever having both connected at once. I guess it's the having a wife who worked for Dominion Energy for 40+ years in me that always makes me think of the guys up on the poles trying to restore power when they get the hell shocked out of them because homeowners have hooked up their generators to power their homes but didn't install a transfer switch which prevents that power from being back fed into the grid. It also took me a while to get comfortable with keeping the truck hooked up to the trailer while feeding the trailer with shore pow
  5. Not sure why I would ever have the shore power cord AND the generator hooked up at the same time. It's one or the other. If the shore power is not hooked up then there is no power feedback issue. Curious though if there is in fact a transfer switch somewhere that I'm not aware of in my 2018 LE II.
  6. ScubaRX; Any chance you could get a pic of the bottom of that space and post it as you have it configured AND one without the tray in it? Thanks. Hobo
  7. David, Just wondering (have never seen this space), would it be reasonable to expect that once opened up for a new access door, a false bottom could be put into this space which makes it a separate storage compartment. Seems there is a fair amount of height above the floor level to play with here. Again, I don't current have access to it so I can't tell for sure. Thanks again. Hobo
  8. David, So I understand fully: When you open up the lower portion of the cabinet, does this actually just give you access to the bowels of the basement or is there a floor in the cabinet which allows a separate storage space? Thanks, Hobo
  9. We ordered the Lagun table that fits between the twin beds but have NEVER used it. In fact, it's never even been in the trailer. At this juncture, for our style of camping, we just won't use it. We are going to sell it (cheap) but I want to know how difficult it would be to remove the bracket and put in the extra door front for storage? Would love to hear from someone who has made this conversion. Thanks
  10. Right you are. I missed those. Let me update my list above. Thanks.
  11. We have a 2018, twin bed model. (Hull 414) and here's what we have in ours: (1) above kitchen counter on bottom of cabinet, (1) below curbside bed, (1) inside rear overhead cabinet (above tv), (1) below streetside bed, (1) below dinette seat, (1) below closet door, (0) in bathroom since it's a wet-bath. (1) outside on curbside, There was a time when Oliver would add outlets but I doubt if they do it now. I think they just starting making them standard based on what folks were asking for.
  12. I was in Hohenwald a couple of days ago and they said the lithium batteries would run the AC for about 5 hours. Not sure what the upcharge is for lithium but if it won't get me through a single night, then why bother?
  13. What's the output (watts) on the MURS frequencies?
  14. At best, the liability release "might" help Oliver Trailer from legal action if a potential customer referred to you gets hurt while viewing a privately owned trailer; but it won't do anything for the party actually showing the trailer. Anything provided by Oliver to a potential customer is ultimately designed to protect Oliver, not you irregardless of the language in the liability release. It's your trailer, your property and therefore you're at the pointy end of the spear if someone wants to claim damages. I seriously doubt if any attorney retained by Oliver Trailers is going to spend any
