  1. Joy and I are trying to be optimistic and have not cancelled our reservation at Guntersville . It would be great if we could safely meet other Oliver owners but admittedly we are in a very difficult time. Of all places, we are coming from Florida, but I assure you we are being careful to a fault. Hopefully the stars will line up, we can meet informally and have a good time. Stay safe out there, Renegade
  2. I want to respond to John, Overland, Mike & Carol, Mossemi, Top Gun and others who may follow by saying thank you for all of your guidance. The information you shared is so important and with invaluable details. Thank you to each of you Safe travels. J & J
  3. John, Where to start?? Thank you - no that is insufficient by a long shot. I must say Joy and I have done a fair amount or research, but nothing we have found to date will hold a candle to what you have provided. The detailed descriptions, photos charts, advice and the list goes on all with important information we need to absorb. Based on your response to my question I can visualize an unintended Oliver rally at Glacier. Pretty amazing! I'll go back to my original insufficient statement - Thank You. It is a good thing we are adhering to the stay at home request which provides much needed time to plan for this special trip. Take care John and stay safe. J & J
  4. Overland, Your reply is more helpful than you may realize. Thank you so much. I am aware of the satellite image, but frankly forgot about using that option. Thanks for that as well. You are correct - no advanced reservations, but since we plan to be there after Labor Day we may be in a better position. It's a major trip from SW Florida so we are trying to dot our eyes and cross our T's and the advice you gave helps a bunch. Take care and stay safe. John
  5. Nan, We have a 2019 Ollie II and thought the back cushions were fine but the bottoms were too soft. My first attempt to buy seat foam was from a local shop which cost me $200 +/-. The cushions were like sitting on 4 X 4's - no give at all. I then contacted the Foam Factory on line and placed an order for what they describe as HD36 High Quality. In our opinion, the new foam is perfect and the cost was $81 door to door. The size we ordered was 24 3/4" X 24 3/4" X 4". My recommendation is if you order new foam to be certain to include Dacron Fiberfill Wrap. Hope this helps. Stay safe with this virus. John
  6. Good morning all, We are planning a trip to Glacier and looking for clarification if our Ollie II will comply at campgrounds within the park? One site indicates the overall length of the RV including the tow vehicle cannot exceed 35'. Other park information simply states the RV cannot exceed 35' with no mention of the tow vehicle. It would be appreciated if someone could clarify assuming we are able to obtain reservations within the park that we will meet the length specifications. The park and website contact information is not currently available. Thank you for your help. John
  7. Trainman, My concern was similar but may not be a good match. The first night following our pickup, July 18th, we had the same concern. In our case we were able to return the next day to Oliver. As it turned out there was a part not properly connected under the starboard berth. They quickly discovered the bad connection and the problem was solved. We have been on the road since pickup and admittedly we have only used the propane once or twice, but it worked. I would like to think my situation may be helpful, but I can see it may not. Take care, John
  8. The previous posts have certainly provided excellent advice on concerns that arise at filling stations with our Oliver attached. My recommendation is to have a full tank on the day of pick-up and a predetermined open practice area. Have on board an adequate number of cones to replicate obstacles at, in this case, a gas station. Practice the arc you will need to negotiate "wrapping around" an object like a gas pump. When you get into a difficult situation your first reaction should not be to move the cones, but to practice backing out of the predicament. Remember to place cone(s) where obstacles other than pumps, like cars, may be. If you hit a cone it is not a big deal(but understand why) and you will soon learn the radius needed for curbs, gas pump islands and other objects. You will soon learn controlling the Oliver is not that complex. The fact that it is basically the width of your tow vehicle is a huge plus. The best to you. A week after pickup I feel you will ask yourself why was I so concerned. Take care, John
  9. KWRJRPE, It is always good to hear from a Nole. Joy and I got our start at FSU , and like you, it was a while ago! We were there during the Bill Peterson days so we have seen our ups and downs. Our graphics will also be Garnet and Gold. Hopefully our combination will look as good as yours. Oliver has certainly been working overtime with 57 new Olivers since April. Very impressive! Thank you for your response and hopefully our paths will cross on the road. J&J
  10. July 18th is the official day Joy and I will take possession of our new Oliver, #501, and hopefully become contributing members of this impressive group of owners. To give you a little background on ourselves, we purchased an Airstream 28 in 2011 which served us well as our vacation home on many wonderful trips. We are not at all opposed to dry camping, but we primarily stay in State and Federal campgrounds. The Oliver first caught our eye two years ago. We paid special attention to the ones we saw in campgrounds and we began reading what we could about them. The intensity built and one Friday in April we arranged to see an Oliver in person. We were so impressed with the quality, livability and the apparent nimbleness that we were on the phone with Rodney Lomax the following Monday. We digested what we learned from Rodney and the next morning the order was placed. Our maiden voyage will be about 2 1/2 months. The furthest destination will be Door County, WI, then drift SW to Bentonville, AR, meandering to the SE and then back to SW Florida by mid-September. It is important for us to get back to help FSU football get out of their slump. Once our curiosity turned to genuine interest, we have been following the impressive posts on the forum. We would like to thank each and every one of you for providing your input to the concerns of others you have yet to meet. Even though we have a certain amount of experience, we have found your input to be very informative - thank you. We will be on the road in a couple of weeks and rather than just admiring your Oliver, we may stop by to say hello. John and Joy
