  2. Hi Don, this is good to hear. Do you have the Andersen hitch with you Touareg/Elite II?
  3. Welcome! You're going to love it; are you taking it back to Abu Dhabi? If so those are pictures I want to see!
  4. There are a lot of them, this is the one I use. It's called Bubble Level Galaxy
  5. Congrats! Let me know if you figure out the bubble disappearance. Mine did too.
  6. Hello, My Elite I was winterized when I picked it up in March. I'm ready to de-winterize but the video here does not seem to be working. Is there another place I can find this video or a similar one? Many thanks . Tom
  7. On my trip back from Hohenwald from picking up my new Elite the main front driver's side window shade/frame fell off and broke. My first experience with Oliver service was amazing. The channel that holds the frame to the window had cracked and split so it would not grip the brackets that hold it to the window. The Oliver service technician I spoke with said a new frame would be sent out. A few days later it arrived. This kind of service is unheard of in the RV industry, thanks Oliver.
  8. Picked up our Elite (Hull 412) on March 18. The trip back to Vermont, 1,200 miles, was good. I did not get an Anderson anti-sway hitch and the Oliver towed perfectly. Waiting for spring to fully kick in here in the north country before our first trip.
  9. Congratulations, I'm also taking delivery of a Legacy Elite (Hull 432) three days before you (March 18). I loved the size of the Elite and wanted a trailer that would be easy for me to tow. Long drive from Vermont to get it, but I'm excited.
  10. Hello neighbors, there aren't many of us up here yet, but I'm across the river in Bradford, Vermont and pick up my new Oliver Elite in two weeks. I didn't do the factory tour but spent time with an Oliver owner in northern Vermont. Would love to hear of your experiences as they unfold.
  11. Sorry if I missed part of this thread but what exactly is in the Duragloss mixture? Sounds like a good idea — wait, sorry I just found it.?
  12. Hope you love your new Ollie. I'm scheduled to pick up my new Oliver Elite on March 7 and am very much looking forward to it. Curious to know what you think of the size? I was torn between the Elite and Elite II, but went for the smaller one mainly because it will be easier to tow. I would love to hear what you come up with for a cover/protection system as I am wondering the same thing. Happy travels!
  13. Hi John, my new Oliver arrives in late February; I've been thinking of spending some time in Florida as well. Are you staying in a single campground for three months or moving around some? Trying to see what other people recommend.
  14. Best of luck to you. I don't have mine yet (it should be ready in late February), but I bet you're going to love it. I don't think there is a better trailer out there, not even Airstreams. I'm with you on hotel rooms, something about them makes my allergies kick up every time.
  15. I have a 2013 Touareg TDI (which has had the modifications) and I plan to drive down to Tennessee from Vermont in March to get my Elite I. The Touareg is an amazing tow vehicle and it should do just fine. You could argue that if a Touareg can tow a 747, it can handle an Olie.
  16. Congrats on your new Elite. I'll be getting mine in late March. I'd love to hear how your first trip went.
  17. Thanks for your thoughts about this. Off topic, but how do you get those little maps of the US with the states you've visited tagged onto your posts?
  18. No, I haven't seen either one in person. I'm going to try in the next few weeks.
  19. Thanks; we are leaning toward the Elite I; we have two small dogs (20 lbs each) who would be fine in a space like that. Good to hear you are happy with it.
  20. For me two things have been on my mind. One is maneuverability. There is a five-foot difference between the two, which does not seem like a lot to me, but it's something. The other thing is the weight, basically a 2,000 lb difference. The weight difference determines what TV I get. I have a friend with a Ford 250 diesel and what an amazing vehicle that is. But realistically a midsize seems more suitable to me. I'm pretty sure a Tacoma, or the new Ford Ranger would be fine with the Elite. I'm hoping to figure this all out and put in an order so I can get a new Ollie next spring.
  21. Congrats on getting a new Elite II. Did you consider the Elite before deciding on the Elite II?
  22. It seems from posts here that most Ollie owners have purchased Elite IIs. I'm trying to decide between the two. The smaller legacy seems to be an amazing use of space and might be easier for me to tow and maneuver. I am also looking for a TV and a mid-size pickup, like the Tacoma, seems suited for the Elite, but may not be enough for the Elite II. For those of you who have weighed both I would love to know what went to making your decision.
  23. Just sold my 2016 Winnebago Travato. I'm new to towing, am thinking about an Elite I, maybe an Elite II and am looking to get the right tow vehicle. Would love some suggestions; I realize there are different specs for a I & II. Ford is coming out with a new Ford Ranger in the spring of 2019 with a towing capacity Ford says will exceed 7,700 lbs, but the exact capacity has not yet been released. I'm thinking of waiting for this. Any thoughts?
