  1. If you have access to military campgrounds, this is our favorite. Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson. Especially during Heritage week. If they had a beach we would move there in a heartbeat.
  2. We are starting to look at next year. Hopefully there will be a Ollie rally in Guntersville in May and from there we head to Alaska. Looking for any info from those who have already made the trip. We want to concentrate on Alaska and the Yukon for this trip. We plan to be out of Alaska mid September.
  3. Its a towel rack I made for when there is no place to put up a clothes line. I bought a double handle suction cup used for glass. Cut it in half and added a piece of PVC pipe. Works like a champ.
  4. That is ours. Hull #520. We just got back from a 3 month trip in the southwest. Both the truck and Ollie get a bath next week.
  5. We had these on our boat and were one of the first mods to the Oliver. They work great.
  6. You might want to look at the Camco yellow stabilizer jack supports. A lot less than the Andersons and work great.

    We just spent five days at the Grand Canyon. Highs around 50 and lows in the 30s. We set the furnace to 68 during the day and 56 at night. Also cooked every night and ran fridge. Used a little over half of a 30 tank.
  8. I do not remember who said it, but I believe that Tennessee requires chain.
  9. We bought a 22" Blackstone before we picked up our Ollie at the end of August. We then went for a 2 month shakedown trip up & down the Blue Ridge Parkway with a stop in Hotlanta for our annual physicals en route home to Pensacola. During the trip we used the grill extensively. There is nothing better than bacon in the morning, plus I have always wanted to work the griddle at a Waffle House. We probably ate more bacon, burgers, grilled sausage, etc during the 7 weeks prior to Hotlanta than last couple of years. The result was a 20 point increase in my cholesterol as my doctor not so subtly pointed out. Soo.... for Christmas we got Ollie a new 3qt Instant Pot last week. It makes great steel-cut oatmeal, but I bet it makes lousy camp toast. 😁
  10. Anyone have any experience with B&W ball mounts? We bought a GMC 2500 for our TV and want to get a different ball mount. We will mostly tow the Ollie, but occasionally a horse trailer for my sister that needs a 2 5/16 and my small sailboat that needs a 1 7/8. Looking at the B&W tow & stow 3 ball mount. We tried a Curt our neighbor has, but too much play. Thanks, Bob
  11. We now have our truck and are just waiting for our trailer. Supposed to be ready to pickup 28 August. Game plan is to head to Hotlanta for a week and then head to the UP after Labor day. We plan to stay until the middle of October. Couple of questions. Do we need reservations that time of year? Weather that time of year? Thanks, Bob
  12. Going through our factory tour pics we did not see any power or USB outlets on the nightstand. Does anyone know if there is 12 volt access at or close to the nightstand? Bob
  13. We did order the inverter, easystart, additional 30 amp connector, and 4 AGM batteries. We also talked to Rodney about a solar port, but that is done by service after completion. We see the advantage for a small panel to keep batteries topped off in long term storage while we are out of the country. We spent up to 2 weeks at a time off the grid during our trip out west in the motorhome this year and never ran the generator more than 1 hour a day. Right now we plan to buy either a Honda or Ryobi generator. Unfortunately, we no longer have Calypso. Thanks to everyone who responded. Gave us a little more to consider.
  14. We currently have not ordered solar panels. We have about about 5 weeks to make changes. I just do not see the justification for them. We lived and cruised for 5 years aboard a sailboat and would go for months between pulling into marinas with only a generator for power, which worked great. The only reason I ask is that during the factory tour Rodney told us that between 70% and 80% of trailers are ordered with solar panels. Am I missing something, which would not be the first time?
