  1. He may have been speaking of Bigfoot trailers. Also, Northern Lite, located in Canada, longtime maker of (IMO) the best made truck campers has plans to make a 4-season trailer called the Boreal. You can see some information about it on their website. It would be constructed somewhat along the lines of an Ollie II, but a bit more spacious.
  2. I have owned a small handful of RV’s, including an Airstream that I bought new as a factory order. I do not presently own an Oliver, but wish I did. Over the years I bought each of my RV’s new, and every one was purchased with the thought being that they were the best I could get irrespective of price at the time I bought them. Sadly, however, the Airstream was the worst of the lot BY FAR when compared to the others I have owned. The company had no quality control whatsoever, their management lacked integrity, and buying it was the worst decision I ever made. And I’m n
  3. I drive past Buffalo every year on my way to and from MT, but have never fished there. In fact, I just drove by Buffalo at the end of last month after fishing for several weeks in SW MT. I would suggest contacting one of the fly shops in Sheridan, like the Fly Shop of the Bighorns, and ask them if you don’t get your answers here. I believe you are looking more for boondocking locations, but I could recommend the Deer Park Campground in Buffalo or Peter D’s RV Park in Sheridan if you’re looking for full service campgrounds to stay in. I’ve stayed in both of those multiple times, as hav
  4. I was told about a couple changes, like the addition of a smart TV in this coming year’s model, that I was not aware of. So I’m sure there is a lot if that going on. Susan, don’t you know that you’re supposed to forget all those stressful things from your former job when you retire/leave it?😀 I did.
  5. I was told, but I forget, the exact increase in number of units they’re building this year compared to last. That does raise another significant question in my mind: namely quality control. Increased production implies a number of additional, newly hired workers, and perhaps an increase in employee turnover. I’m somewhat leary about having something (anything) built by a factory of new hires.
  6. I would certainly want to know where the transfer switch is located and that it is functioning properly. I have a cap on the back of my truck so I wouldn’t intend to run it in there, but I do like the idea of having it on the ground in the front of the trailer so it is away from the bedroom area in the event I wanted to run it at night. I would probably get a waterproof doggy sized tent and put it on the ground for the generator. The propane tanks being up front is probably another reason not to run the generator in that front tray.
  7. I wasn’t really expecting anyone to get back to me on that. He did say that the Oliver was built to code, which I would assume would be a requirement for that 30 AMP convenience connection. I was expecting to receive a 2021order form and a brochure via email, however, which I have not yet received, but it has only been a day now. (Patience isn’t one of my virtues. 😀)
  8. Thank you for your answer, Overland. I was surprised that the Oliver sales guy did not know about transfer switches. We owned an Airstream a few years back that had a transfer switch that was improperly wired at the factory and it almost burned our trailer down.
  9. I am considering ordering a new Oliver and would want to be able to use a portable generator with it on occasion. I assumed that the 30 AMP convenience connection option is what I would need to plug the trailer into a generator. But maybe that’s not the case?? However, when I asked Oliver sales If the Oliver then had a transfer switch so you wouldn’t be connected at the same time to shore power as well as a generator, the answer was “...don’t know...never been asked that question before.” So, is there a transfer switch on an Oliver? Thanks, John
  10. My wife and I spent our summers in MT for 18 years. I kept my RV’s, boats, an ATV and its trailer there most, if not all, of the year in a rented storage facility, and had them all titled there, although I am a legal resident of another state. I didn’t need a driver’s license or an LLC to get my MT titles and licenses, and on one or more occasion when I went to the county courthouse to get a license for one of these newly purchased items and told them my driver’s license was from another state they didn’t even want to see my driver’s license. MT does not have any sales tax, you don’t have
  11. Actually, we had 5 different RV’s over that time period that we stayed in from May to September.
  12. My wife and I have spent 18 summers on the Yellowstone River, midway between Livingston and Gardiner, and the north entrance to the Park., so we’re in and through the Park multiple times over the course of every summer, and going in and out of every entrance. There have already been lots of good suggestions given here already which I won’t duplicate, but I’d like to offer a couple more points to keep in mind. One is that if you go into the Park early, say between 5:00 am and 7:00 am, you’ll beat most of the slow traffic, plus have a better chance of seeing wildlife. And, May is a go
  13. I’m new here and this is my first post, so I hope you don’t mind if I provide a bit of input to your question before I introduce myself. I’ve driven HYW 25 between Cheyenne and Buffalo a time or two, although it isn’t the normal route that I take each year between my home in PA and our summer destination along the Yellowstone River south of Livingston, MT. (I don’t recall anything in particular about this section of highway, pro or con). I do have a number of friends that always stay at the Deer Park Campground in Buffalo whenever they travel to or from the Livingston, MT area eve
