  1. I ran across a You Tube video with the above subject and gave it a watch. It was interesting to compare buying an Oliver to the "mainstream RV buyer possible concerns about purchasing in 2021. They were listed as very little inventory to choose from, very little discount on the ones available, not getting the exact model or options you want, build quality during covid, and finally when everyone who purchased an RV in 2020 decides it was a poor decision and wants to sell the market for used trailers will tank. One, well as most of us know, there is no inventory to choose from and all Olivers
  2. Also remember that with the Andersen Weight distributing hitch installed and adjusted, some of the tongue weight is distributed to the Oliver as well. A visit to a CAT scale would be in order to dial in your tire pressure.
  3. You didn't mention if you have solar and the big AGM battery bank with the inverter. With that a generator is usually only needed for the A/C. Everything else should run on Propane, 12 volt and inverter. That has been our experience.
  4. Our 2018 Elite 2 has the same A/C with an easy start and my Honda 2200 EU runs the A/C fine, just don't try to run the microwave or the fridge on auto at the same time. FYI Champion dual fuel generators have a lower wattage output running on propane. We follow the travel route of 70 degrees and sunny so we have traveled 5 months at a time maybe using the generator once or twice.
  5. Our Ollie is our third RV in 34 years and we had the vehicle to tow it. We love the flexibility to set up camp and go out exploring. If we were just starting out with no tow vehicle I would purchase one of the Cruise America class C rental units. They were well maintained and built with heavy duty interiors for the rental market. They typically have 140K miles and are 4 years old and sell in the low $30's. You could buy one and take a spin around the country and probably not loose too much if you decided the road was not for you. Good Luck
  6. 2009 Ford E350 Van with 5.4 gas V8. Towing high 11's to high 12's at 62mph. Solo 16 to 17mpg at 65 to 70mph.
  7. Ok all you hot rodders, now you can have your cake and tow your Oliver too.
  8. The radar data delay from Noaa is about 7 minutes. Then your app has to take that data and fit it into their program for distribution. Still beter than asking your aunt if her rheumatism is flairing up..
  9. After dumping the grey tank and hitting the road, the next time we stopped there was a strong odor in the camper. Normally there is not much of a rush of water wen draining the grey tank but under the right circumstances like fullness of the tank and tilt of the camper you can get a pretty good flow going. What I thought was the big flow might have caused the water in the pea trap in the shower floor drain to be sucked out allowing the odor to come up and into the camper. Another time my wife accidentalIy sucked the water out of the shower p-trap while vacuuming the floor. That could cause
  10. I get between 9 and 15 days out of a 30# tank running the furnace at night with temps around 50.
  11. It would be interesting to see how that regulation came about. Things like this usually don't just come about out of thin air. I like the cables. they hold up the whale tail on my Andersen. Do you think some chain manufacturer in Tennessee put a bug in some politicians ear?
  12. I really like my Proven Industries Lock. Pricey yes, but so is the Oliver. There are interesting videos from Proven Industries showing just how easy it is to disable many other locks. If you are worried about someone swapping out the tongue you could always have the bolts tack welded. At some point if someone wants it bad enough they could always come by and winch it onto a flatbed.
  13. I picked up a sharkbite and a 12" braded toilet line and it works for $12.00
  14. I'm not a big fan of the plastic insert fittings in the Pex. This broke where it attached to the Truma water heater
  15. Hi John. We sold our house, ordered an Ollie and have put over 30,000 miles on ours in 17 months. It is built like a tank and tows like a dream. It is perfect for full timing and seeing our beautiful country. Oliver’s don’t seem to be built to a price point which is rare now a days. In my opinion nothing on the market can touch it in quality not to mention the service you receive at any price. Try to make the Oliver rally in May. We did before ordering ours and it was so much fun and informative.
