  1. For those of you that will be keeping their camping reservations, would you mind sharing which spot you will be in. It is quite a large campground from what I understand and it would be nice if we could all be relatively close (if possible). We will be on E-12, but would gladly move to another spot if it it is available and closer to the majority of our fellow Ollie Owners. -beaker
  2. This will be our first Rally and only our third trip in our Ollie. We’ve kept our reservations and hope to (safely) meet some fellow Ollie owners.
  3. Update: Two weeks ago we drove to Plains, GA and took possession of our new OLEII. It is a 2016 and had only 6000 miles on it. It is in pristine condition and we couldn’t be happier. We found it here in the Classified area of this forum. We took it to Roosevelt State Park for it’s maiden voyage this past weekend. We have reservations for a site at the Rally in September and can’t wait to me some fellow Oliver Owners.
  4. When we had a 30ft SOB (Some other brand) camper I had a custom tray welded to the tongue and used two LowPro Lockdown plates to mount our Honda Companion Generators to the front of the camper. The setup functioned quite well for the occasional dry camping that we did. Noise was not really a problem for us, but the camper had a front bedroom and the vibration was enough to keep us awake. How much vibration does this setup transmit to the camper? Is it noticeable? Bryan
  5. We've had the 2000W Honda Companion Generators for 10 years and have had no problems with them.
  6. Has anyone ever removed the stripes on the side of the camper? If I purchased a used OTT and the stripes just happened to be the same color as those used by my college football teams rival, they might have to come off.
  7. I agree. Best of both worlds. No one can "borrow" it and easy to swap out if there is a problem.
  8. Like a lot of folks, my previous campers have given me the opportunity to have something to tinker with and improve. As an engineer, I just can’t help but want to try to “make improvements”. I was reading through the Oliver Support site and came across the information on the Oliver’s integrated surge protector that has a display unit for showing error codes to indicate various power issues I was wondering if anyone has replaced the Progressive surge protector with a “smart” one that will talk to an app on your phone, tablet or smart watch. A quick Google search revealed one made by Hughes Autoformers in California (https://hughesautoformers.com) (I’m not affiliated with them in any way). Here is a video showing how one guy integrated one into their Class A
  9. Mac and ScubaRx, thanks for the great feedback. This is very helpful!
  10. Chuck, The table looks great. I hope you don't mind, I re-posted the pictures in a format that more people will be able to view online without having to download them.
  11. Thanks for that post. Sorry if this has been asked before. Do you use anything to supplement the cushions for sleeping? A memory foam topper? Or something similar.
  12. Overland, As hopeful Oliver owners, we are struggling with the decision between the Standard and the Twin LEII. One of the reasons is that we often camp with friends and our camper would probably be the gathering place for indoor activities when the weather does not allow, for example, a rousing game of dominoes. The Standard floorplan with the large table would meet that need quite well, but as others have mentioned there are drawbacks to that layout. This modification seems to bridge the gab between the two options, allowing you to have your cake and eat it to. I do have a question for you. Do you ever use the lagun table with visitors in your camper? How well does that work? Does it feel like you are sitting on the edge of a bed when you are sitting around the table? Thanks!
  13. Thanks KenB. How does your LC do pulling the LE II? We have an '05 LC so using it as a tow vehicle would not be an option. We would have to use or tow vehicle from our other campers, a 2009 Chevy HD Diesel 2500. Would entertain upgrading our '05 LC to an '08 or newer if we got some feedback that it would tow an Ollie LE2 just fine.
  14. Yes, the more I research the airstreams, the less appealing the "shiny" land yachts become.
