  1. I have a Calmark cover that I used for one season while the Oliver Legacy II was parked in a barn. Now that the Oliver has been sold, I'll sell the cover for $500 or best offer if the buyer bears the cost of shipping.
  2. The business of van life How the RV industry is falling short, and how van lifers are filling the gap...
  3. One final wrinkle: "And the one in the rear I can turn 90 degrees so that there is extra space behind" On mine the rear width is just 17" -- so I cannot turn it 90 degrees. Also, the width at the crook of the L is just 15" So it goes...
  4. Clearly, your TT follows the dotted line and 3 crates can fit: However, my TT follows the solid line as originally posted. Perhaps production found it less labor intensive to just have a straight wall instead of following the curve. So there's dead space in there?
  5. Sorry: it must be very irksome to you. I've relied on your opinion on all sorts of issues, especially the Lagun Table jig. So I assure you I've tried every possible way to fit 3 19" x 13" crates in the basement without success. Perhaps the basement dimensions have changed over time, but I doubt it as the stated length is given as 48" in the "measurement index" for all recent model years.
  6. Please correct me if any assumptions below are incorrect. Only two 19 x 13 x 11 milk crates can fit in the basement:also However, one 19 x 13 x 11 and two 13 x 13 x 11 can also fit: If you have the optional interior access installed, there is a problem. The access is 4" from the floor and just 7.5" tall, making the top edge 11.5" from the floor. But the crates are 11" high, thus making it impossible to access the contents of the milk crate. the crate/container should be at most be 6" high to make the contents accessible from the inside. To address these issues, I've been playing around with some custom designed containers as shown below. They can be constructed using fiberglass over molds. OTT has the expertise to do this easily, but the production team have their hands full producing TTs and probably won't be interested. A local fiberglass shop is willing to do it ($$). Another way is to use 0.25" polycarbonate and poycarbonate cement to construct them ($$$$). Yet a third way would be to use wood ($?). All the containers are 12" high (leaving room for casters underneath). Container 5 has a lip of 4" in the front And a height of 12" in the back , for those who have the interior access installed. Otherwise all sides should be 12", Containers 4, 5 & 6 are restricted to a 14" length so that they can easily "turn the corner" when sliding the in or out:
  7. I'm confused: "Perhaps more people will be less inclined to post contact info publicly, and use the pm system."
  8. Please reconsider. The audience for a classified ad is considerably reduced by insisting that visitors register in order to see the ad. There are other ways to protect oneself from spam. I personally use a separate email address for that purpose.
  9. Why does my post to Classified not appear unless I'm signed on?
  10. Also, would a mesh cradle underneath the coupler (say 12"x12") hooked onto the uncrossed chains at each corner not serve the same purpose as crossed chains? The attachment points on the Oliver's tongue makes for a very narrow crossing anyway and defeats the purpose. No?
  11. OK. I'm going to restart and return the hose I bought. Could somebody please supply a link to an online place where I can buy the correct hose (to connect from the Oliver to a Blackstone Griddle)? Thanks!
  12. Mossemi: 'locking collar' is so much better than 'springed rings'. Thanks!
  13. Thanks Dave: I had the levers in the open position when trying to insert the male adapter, but omitted to mention it... This is the hose I bought: Link Could it possibly be that the front diameter is a tad too large?
  14. I found the following video very informative:
  15. The male end of our Propane hose will not lock into the female receiver on the Oliver. It seems that the 'springed rings' (terminology?) that one pulls back to insert the male end does not pull back far enough, leaving the ball bearings only partially retracted. Close inspection shows that the 'springed rings' are hitting the Oliver's frame before they're fully pulled back. Or am I missing some obvious point?
