  1. +1 on the quality of Foy's work. Both items make the Oliver's interior look even richer. As a side note, my wife and I tend to shower before going to bed. We place the shower mat outside the shower and replace it when we're done. This prevents either of us risking wet feet when we get up during the night to use the bathroom.
  2. Where the law allows, I usually set the cruise control at 75. Truck and trailer seem pretty happy at that speed. West of me the speed limit on I-10 is 80 but I usually stay at 75 as a max cruise speed. I'm always impressed how cool the tires and hubs stay even at those speeds on a hot day. Fuel mileage gets better at higher altitudes. I've noticed the same thing on my motorcycle trips. (someone smarter than me will need to explain why) When we brought the trailer home form Tenn. we averaged 16-ish which was all lower altitude drivng. We encountered a couple of 10 - 12% grades off th

Mileage wise, we averaged 17.6 mpg up and back on our Yellowstone trip, towing. Without the trailer it averages 27mpg combination city/highway. The greatest benefit to the mileage is the range. We can get over 400 miles on a tank with the trailer attached, which means we only need to fill-up once per day (usually at lunch for us); which far outlasts my bladder. It does great in the mountains. The turbo means you don't loose much power at altitude. Cli
  4. We picked up Hull #306 April of last year. Since then we've put about 5K miles on the trailer, including a recent trip to Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons; and we absolutely love it. We previously had a Casita 17 Deluxe. The Oliver LEII is everything we wished for in the Casita and more. We've been part of the fiberglass community for some time and were accustomed to the curiosity people have for these trailers. However, we never get tired of the universal “wow” people express when they step inside an Oliver. I want to give a special shout out to “Jam49” who left a kind note on o
