  1. We purchased a Clam while on the road and had it delivered to the campground. It was very easy to put up and take down. It fit easily in the bed of the truck. It works well. I agree on getting the side panels. It increases the usability.
  2. We are on the Gulf of Mexico due south of Tallahassee. We began our journey departing Maine on February 3rd with plans to visit Charleston, Savannah, the Keys, Naples, Tampa, Destin, Gulfport, New Orleans, Natchez and the Trace, Nashville, and then to the Oliver Rally and then home. We did get to Charleston, Savannah, the Keys, Naples and Tampa. We are leaving here tomorrow for home. With limited services and most everything closing, to us, it just seems best to head home. We will end our trip 2 months early and that is disappointing. However, the 45 days on our first camping trip in our Ollie has been great. We learned a lot and met some very nice folks. We stayed in Cracker Barrels, State Parks, RV resorts, and private campgrounds. It has been an adventure. We learned about our Oliver. We hooked up, used a dump station, learned how to use the Andersen hitch, greased our Dexter suspension, fixed a broken tongue jack (operator error) and had our refrigerator serviced in the keys. We will return to Maine to wait this out and hope to remain healthy and enjoy a great summer. We will plan to go back back out next winter and finish part of the trip we didn't get to do this year, go further and do more next year. Stay healthy!!!!!!!
  3. Setting the fan to auto fixed this issue for us. Good luck
  4. Hi Bob. We are at Collier Seminole Park in Naples. A guy from the Mooshead region stopped by and was chatting with me. He volunteers here. He mentioned another Oliver that was in this park last year from Maine it sure sounded like he was describing you. Hope all is well. Granite Staters, we look forward to running into you. We lived in Exeter for 20 years and 2 years ago moved back to Maine. We liked Exeter a ton.
  5. We recently had a similar issue. Frustrating as we went through All of the steps mentioned above including calling Jason. We had some othe issues and had a tech out working on our refrigerator. We asked him to look at the Jack. Well long story short. After previously checking the fuses on 3 seperate occasions including with a meter it turned out to be the fuse. Initially you could not visually see the fuse was blown on the first 3 inspections. This time you could see it. We replaced the fuse and were back in business. It was very frustrating and embarrassing as I had checked it 2 times and an auto mechanic that was in our camp ground and has also worked on rvs for 15 years missed it too. Maybe try turning the main power off swapping the fuse and turn the main power on. I cannot explain why this worked!! Good luck, I feel your pain!!!
  6. We have a number of items hung in our Olliver using the velcro strips. This includes a. Apple tv box upside down. So far so good after the 1st 2000 miles. The alcohol wipe down is important. We are in mid coast Maine just north of Boothbay Harbor. Let us know if you will be in tbe area. Enjoy
  7. Thanks all for the nice feedback. We are having a great time. The Ollie is working out great for us. We like that we can personalize it. We have lots of Nancy's photos mounted on canvas inside, and the Lagun table modification. You really can make the Oliver your own. We leave the FL Keys tomorrow for a State Park in Naples. We have received a number of inquiries and compliments on the Ollie along our journey so far. Lots of curious folks and they all seem to like the Olliver. The Ollie and our dog Marley are great conversation starters and have helped us meet lots of nice folks. We are learning some lessons as first time RVers, like how difficult it is to get in any park in Florida in the winter. The Keys have been split between 2 RV resorts. The first was small with just 35 spaces. The current park is huge with a couple hundred spots and even a restaurant. Folks have been nice and helpful. Nancy, Marley (our dog) and I are enjoying it. So far Charleston, Savannah, and the Keys have been great and we have been in nice parks, some state parks some private. 4 of the 5 at the beach. We have a free beach boondocking site coming up in Louisiana. Bob (Mainiac), We think of you guys all the time and are appreciative of the help you provided. Seems like a somewhat mild winter turned for the worse right after we left. Keep shoveling and stay warm. Hope you plow out your Ollie, perhaps we can meet up! After Naples we head up the gulf coast across the Florida panhandle, spending most of our stops along the beach and bays. Then to Gulfport, MS and on to New Orleans, and Natchez, MS. We will drive the Nachez Trace Parkway to Nashville and conclude our trip at the Oliver Rally before heading home for a great Summer in Maine with boating (camping at sea) and Lobsters!!! It has been, and looks to be a great year!
  8. We finally installed our grapics today on hull 537 "Beacon" It was too cold to install them in Maine after we returned from picking the Ollie up in late October. It was warm enough today in the Florida Keys. We have been on the road since February 3rd and will end this year's trip at the Oliver rally. My wife took the pictures and the graphics/vinyl were done by Banana Banners of Bowdionham, Maine. (Thanks for the referral Mainiac) The photos are of the Pemaquid Lighthouse just 3 miles from home. See you at the Rally.
  9. Hi Nan sorry for the delay in responding. We were at Redgate. It worked out well. It was so close to downtown a d quiet at night. You probably know campground is on a farm a d wedding venue. Perhaps we will catch up at the rally in May. We are in the Keys now and heading to Naples this weekend. Thanks Matt and Nancy #537 "Beacon"
  10. Ours hull 537 did come with a 25ft cord along with 25ft fresh water hose and some quick connectors. Your Oliver sales person can provide a complete list. Congratulations on your new Ollie.
  11. We are attending and have a site in section G. I can't remember which one. We are excited as this is our first rally. We picked up #537 "Beacon" in October. We left Maine February 2, for 4 months on the road. We are currently in Savannah and will be heading to the Keys next week. The rally is our last stop before heading home to Maine for the summer. See you all there!!!!
  12. Hi. We had the same discussion. Mainiac was kind enough to show us his Ollie. We discussed both floor plan options. Ultimately, we chose the twin plan and did a modification of adding a lagun table mounted on the side. Check out Overland's thread in the Ollie modifications. We can't seat 6 for dinner but we can seat 4 and we have the night stand with basement door. We use the lagun table daily. It can also be easily stored in the closet. When I saw Overland's modification, it provided a good solution for us.
