  1. Thanks to everyone’s kind words. The two stacked covers are the satellite and cable tv coax connections. Below are the links to the hatch and suction cup shower head holder. I also added a stainless sliding latch to cover to prevent it from unscrewing while in transit. Probably overkill, but gives me peace of mind. http://keehui Marine 316 Stainless Steel http://OUO Suction Cup Shower Head... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y1WB59Q?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  2. Thought I’d share a recent mod I completed on the outside battery/shower compartment door. We use the outside shower quite a bit and do not like the fact that the battery compartment door has to remain open in order to utilize the outside shower. So I installed a small marine grade access hatch through which I can feed the shower head through and close the door. Works beautifully!
  3. At the end of this month we will be taking our Elite I to Cades Cove in the Smokey Mountains for a 7 day stay. It will be our first trip since picking up camper in March, hull 765. We are so excited! Perhaps we will see a few other Ollies there, who knows. Any Cades Cove campground tips from others who have camped there?
  4. Very exciting and beautiful photo! We pick up our Elite I Wednesday March 25th (hull 765) and are staying at the Natchez Trace rv campground for 3 nights. Apparently Davey Crockett is full, some sort of convention is going on.
  5. Electrically both scenarios accomplish the exact same thing.
  6. The Elite 1 tray is apparently 14x14, which will accommodate 2 Battleborn batteries, it’s the height I’m worried about. Battery height is 9” and height from tray to ceiling of compartment is a little over 9”, so looks like they will fit (?).
  7. Can any newer Elite 1 owners confirm that 2 Battleborn batteries will fit without modifications to battery compartment tray?
  8. Anyone have experience with the Redport wifi range extender? All reviews/videos seem to be positive. Thanks.
  9. Can’t comment on its tow characteristics as we don’t have our Elite 1 yet, but we will be using our 2018 GMC Canyon. The tow ratings fall well within the Elite 1 weight. Hope it won’t feel too strained towing the trailer.
  10. Awesome photo. That’s the kind of scenery we’re looking forward to. Any one have pics from the North West? Our son attends UW in Seattle. We’re already mapping out our trip from North West Florida to Seattle. Should be epic.
  11. Perfect, except I want one that shows every day as “Saturday “.
  12. Any chance you could post pictures? Rain, sleet or snow, doesn’t matter for those of us waiting for delivery day. Lol. Would just like to see what might be in our future. Can’t wait. March 25th for us.
  13. Thanks for the review! Just ordered one. Will need it for a complete solar install once we get our Elite 1 home from Hohenwald in March.
  14. I would love to convert unused black water tank to an additional 18 gallons of fresh water. Makes so much sense for those with the Natures Head composting toilet. We don’t have our trailer yet, March 25 delivery, but very interested in making this modification.
  15. From what Anita told me, the mattress is latex and comes in two pieces so access to the hatches will be easier. However, you can’t convert bed into dinette, has to be in bed mode full time which is what we want. We were able to try one out on our tour, very comfortable.
  16. Option we settled on are: Standard FP mattress along with Hypervent matting, Midnight Decor package, Ultrafabric upgrade, Powered awning, Black cabinet doors, no microwave (storage box instead) standard water heater, outdoor pro package and the Natures Head toilet. I will be installing the solar power system using Victron components with Renogy panels, micro-air easy start, plus a few other goodies.
  17. I’m with you guy, we will be picking up an LE1 March 25. Did the factory tour about 2weeks ago with Anita and camped at Fall Creek Falls, TN in our Tab 320. About a 3 hour drive to Hoenwald but worth it.
  18. I can still see the starting prices on their website. Still the same.
  19. Ok, that last post cinched it for me, I’m going with the standard water heater. Lower cost, easier/cheaper to repair, can run on gas and electric, fairly quick heat up time. Sounds good to me.
  20. Thanks! That’s a big help. Guess I will be mounting my charge controllers under rear dinette seat. Think there’s room for an inverter in there as well?
  21. I feel your pain. We put a deposit down as well and keep waffling back and forth on a couple of options. We however plan on Boondocking. Deciding on the powered awning and Truma water heater is especially difficult as I tend to align with the “keep it simple, stupid” group, LOL. Anyway, I will be closely following this thread. Keep the opinions coming.
  22. Does anyone have photos of the under seat areas of the Elite I. I don’t have mine yet, but I’m starting to gather components such as solar charge controller, for future installation and would like to see how much space is available under the various seats.
  23. Thanks to all, we really appreciate the warm welcome! It is amazing how time seems to zip by. We currently are trying to figure out which weekend to travel to Hohenwald, TN for the Oliver factory tour. Its about a 7 hour drive for us so completely doable on a long weekend. We did have an opportunity about 2 months ago to visit with an Oliver owner a few miles down the road to check out his Elite II and I must say it exceeded our expectations. Once we get the Oliver and start our next adventure, our focus will be to boondock as much as possible as we head out west. I've been reading up on it and taking notes to be as prepared as I can. So that means of course getting solar, the Natures Head composting toilet, and possibly converting the black tank to a potable water tank. Anyhow, I don't want to ramble on too much so I'll just say once again thanks to everyone and hope to cross paths with as many of you as we can once we hit the road.
  24. Hello all! My wife and I recently put a deposit down on an Oliver Elite I with a future deliver date around May of 2021. I know, that's a long way off, but that will put us much closer to my retirement and will keep the Oliver at 2020 pricing. We currently have a Nucamp Tab 320 which is serving us well but anticipate needing a little more room as we plan on traveling across country from our home in Navarre, FL to visit our son in Seattle, WA. Anyway, thanks to all for the useful information we have gathered thus far from this forum and look forward to new posts. Chris & Merrilee
