  1. My 2020 Tundra did a very good job towing my Elite II last week. We did not have to traverse too many steep climbs but did have a few pulls in N Ga. back roads. I know the 2020 Tundra is obsolete in many ways but the engine was what I wanted. I have the same V8 in my 2011 Lexus 570 and it never misses a beat and just runs, runs, and runs. I am interested to see if Toyota catches up with the 2021 model Tundra. I have had a Jeep Rubicon that stayed in the shop (3 radiators and resurfaced heads from metallurgy issues with 111,000 miles in which Jeep gave me a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty) and a Ford 150 that was problematic have steered me to Toyota. If we could get Toyota to come out with a 2500 series I would be thrilled.
  2. Welcome!!! You will love it!
  3. Yes it is John. I tried to copy and paste with my MacBook but couldn't copy. I am sure operator error was in play. I used it for about an hour or so with my Ollie and was satisfied. Connection was warm but not hot. 90 degrees led to some of the temperature. Thanks for your help!
  4. Actually I ordered one from Amazon. They have several for sale, I try to always stay away the the cheaper ones and go with a reputable company. $44 NEMA. L-5- 30. 30A/125V. 10AWG
  5. Picked up our Ollie last week with the additional 30A plug and it does NOT come with an additional cord. I purchased an additional 10' cord for generator use if needed.
  6. We picked up our camper yesterday! (Monday). Phil Andrews and James Oliver did an excellent job answering all our questions in 3 hours. We are planning on staying till Friday morning then heading to Cloudland Canyon State Park in Ga for 2 nights before returning home in Palmetto Ga Sunday afternoon. I had no idea there is a 80% chance of rain tomorrow. Not sure I will change our plans but will continue to just learn our Ollie. We had another Oliver that pulled into the campground this afternoon for a 1 day stop before heading out for an another trip. It was great to stand and chat for awhile 6 feet apart of course. If you are well seasoned campers then I understand not camping, but of course you never know what little problem you may have when you get home. Have a safe trip! Thanks for all the post and excellent answers from all these past 9 months or so. All the information made our walk through seem less intimidating. I will post a few picks when I get home
  7. We are planning on attending. Hopefully things will calm a little by September dates.
  8. 6' 3" 295#. We pick our Ollie up Monday. The 2 times my wife and I were in Hohenwald the bathroom was a concern and the bed length. As others have said in reply that the shower is adequate. I had room to shower and maneuver just fine. Of course I would like a little more room but to me it is all part of the experience of camping. My last 2 campers have been a 32' motor home and a pop-up. The Ollie has a huge bathroom compared to the pop-up! The bed length is fine because I do not sleep in a straight line. The king size bed would have been nice but the trade off of having access to cabinets and the hall way made the twin option better for us. The best option is to make the trip to see an Ollie in person. They are a unique camper in function and craftsmanship.
  9. Congratulations!!! Welcome to the family.... Erv & Sherry
  10. Congratulations!!!! Welcome to the family! We pick ours up on the 27th. The time will fly by and you will be driving away soon with a big smile!
  11. Welcome!!! Hope. to meet you. We pick up our Ollie in 3 Weeks! Erv & Sherry
  12. have to pay Georgia sales tax. My came to the tune of $4200.00 to get my tag. I had to pay a similar amount of sales tax in Utah when I registered my Ollie at the DMV We are in Fulton County GA about a mile from Coweta County, so I guess my price for my Ollie just got bumped up a bit. Oh well, the price we pay! In my mind I figured that was going to be the case, but with taxes you just accept the fact and move on. We may not like it, but we are blessed to be able to buy an Ollie! Thanks for the comments guys and gals.
  13. I will let you know after I get mine home after July. I am not thinking it will be that much. Is Montana the state people use for registering exotic cars? I guess I may have to do a little research too. Maybe some Montana residents can chime in. I always assumed you had to register where you lived or had property. I do have a house in NC, what is the tax basis there for Ollie owners?
  14. Gary, My wife and I did a ton of research before purchasing a new Oliver which we will pick up in a month. We looked at Bigfoot and Lance and were very impressed with those trailers but once we took the Oliver factory tour, our minds were made. The Oliver is at another level with the quality build. You will find a few problems with Bigfoot and Lance that are related to other RV's with wood interiors. Leak problems and other irritating issues are far less in the Oliver. We looked real hard at the single bed but the issues that Mike and Carol mentioned were our thoughts exactly. The twin beds were much more versatile and you can always make some modifications like ones shown on this forum. These are some very wise and crafty owners who can modify their Ollie to fit their desires. We also looked on the forum at many of the used campers which were some very good deals. At the price of a used versus a brand new we made the decision to buy new figuring it would be our last camper purchase. I do not think you can go wrong with either choice. Oliver still have issues. but almost all of them are with RV appliances which cannot be avoided. The Ollie will be as sound in 10 years as the year you purchase, that is why the resale prices stay high. Good luck with your search and I recommend the tour. Erv
  15. Congratulations !!! So exciting. We can't wait! Erv & Sherry Carter. Hull 650. Picking up July 27th!
