  1. Looks like so much fun! Is there a timeline for this Summer Odyssey? Enjoy!
  2. Where in southern Oregon? We have a home in Eureka, CA and are spending most of our time here. This next 6 weeks being the exception. We’ll be spending time in San Luis Obispo County, then on to Death Valley until mid-February when we’ll return to Eureka with The Pearl - our Oliver Trailer II. We’re planning short trips into Oregon in the spring - perhaps we can swap stories.
  3. Welcome to the wonderful world of Oliver! We picked up ours April of 2019 and have enjoyed every minute! New places, new friends and lots of adventures!
  4. Sounds like a plan! Great suggestion John! (Or wife of John). We’d certainly be willing to pay a fee as neither of us has had the opportunity to see an eclipse.
  5. We’re currently at Lake Pleasant Regional Park. It’s one of the parks in the Maricopa County system. It’s quite lovely although a bit pricey at $32/night. Has water and power and nice shower/bathroom facilities. It’s near Phoenix and has allowed us to visit numerous friends in the area. As a bonus it has free roaming burros! Heading towards Tucson then eastward into New Mexico and Texas.
  6. Thanks, looking forward to it!
  7. We’re newbies to Quartzite but are excited to be able to squeeze in a couple of days. We’ll probably arrive on Feb 3 and pull out on Feb 6th. Other obligations in Tucson. Since this is all new, do we just head for Dome Rock and find an open area? Maybe an Oliver or two? Looking forward to 2020 adventures!
  8. Jalama Beach is in our backyard (kinda-about 100 miles away) Now that we have our Oliver, we’ll be making a visit! Your pictures are beautiful!
  9. Great fun! Thanks for staying the extra day!
  10. Well, we finally retired and took ownership of our Oliver - The Pearl on April 15th! We love it! After three pleasant days at the pristine David Crockett State Park, we moved down the Natchez Trace to Tishomingo State Park in Mississippi. Our experience was enhanced by all the great advice and suggestions we received on The Forum - from hitches to drawer dividers! Thank you to all and we’re looking forward to meeting y’all at the rally.
  11. Thank you! The images are great and very helpful!
  12. We picking up our Oliver on March 26th, very exciting!! Can you message me that spec sheet that you got from Oliver? Much appreciate it. Kathi
  13. Congratulations on hull 412 delivery! We’re 413 and are getting even more excited now. Any pick up tips or suggestions would be welcome, although the forum provides lots of insight. Great job with the decorating- love the red!
  14. Hello everyone, we very much enjoy reading the forum. There sure are a lot of Alpha Dogs out there - I am reaching out for opinions on mud flaps. I have been online studying the many options. I was thinking that I could get only quality mud flaps OR spray the front of our Oliver II with bed liner material. Do I need both? Our tow vehicle is a 2018 2500HD GMC Duramax 4x4. Looking forward to picking up our Oliver II (The Pearl) in January and attending the rally in May.
  15. We ordered it and got the lower price! Thanks. One more item to add to our stash - we’re getting ready to pick up Hull 413 in January!
  16. Congratulations! We should be picking up hull #413 in January too! Very excited and really looking forward to the next chapter!
  17. Darryl and Kim We were vacillating between the SnugTop (which is owned by Leer) and the ARE, our local distributor has both. We put a deposit on the ARE yesterday. Being comfortable with the dealer is good, but know that they will not fix anything if the manufacturer won’t agree to pay them. BUT they did say the ARE has the best warranty. Our new cap has the back window that opens, LED lights, side windows that open and vent, dual rear locks, fabric headliner AND two clothes rods. We picked up our Duramax 2500 and now we just have to get our Oliver in January!! We agree this forum is awesome for us RV newbies.
  18. Thanks for all the great suggestions! We’ve read about protecting the front of the Ollie against the roughness of the road to Alaska and will do so when the time arrives - that trip is a couple years out. Looking forward to the rally in May to visiting and learning from all of you seasoned travelers.
  19. Thanks, great information! I already have the mud flaps, the floor mats and have decided on the ARE cap. Also, at some point we’ll get the Rock Tamers - ALCAN highway is on our list! I had read the with the 3/4 ton I didn’t need the Anderson, but thank for the offer. Just another few months and we’ll be on the road... Kevin and Kathi
  20. Hi, we just picked up our 2018 GMC Duramax 4wd crew cab. Now we need to get a hitch and ball. Since we don’t have our Oliver yet, it’s hard to know what we’ll need to bring to Tennessee in January. Can you share what you have since we have the same tv and Oliver? I’m thinking about going with the 2 5/16 ball- your thoughts?
  21. What a clever and creative idea! I look forward to hearing how it all works this next month! Happy Trails!
