    The ONLY valid reason for being pissed  off at having to wait for somebody to maneuver is a medical emergency.

    One of my fondest memories of my father ...

    Parents + 5 kids in a station wagon...just drove in from east jesus for our yearly camping trip...everyone exhausted and ragged...we can see the campsite where we are about to set up our tent...some fancy dude with some giant trailer thing can't get out of the road...what else could go wrong...

    Dad gets out of the car and just goes all "Ain't life beautiful" on everyone who will listen.  "No place I'd rather be!"

    I was 12 and Dad was cool.

    There may be no answer when you are the guy backing in.  But there certainly is when you are the guy waiting.

  2. I figured as much. 😁
    As the next best alternative, my wife and I are planning on a week or so in an Airstream.  They park it some place pretty, and we live out of it.
    Hopefully that teaches us what we need to know about ourselves and RVing.

  3. I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere.  Just point, I'm happy to read up.

    But, 2 questions:

    1) why have solar attached to the roof - seems like a driving negative, a structural negative, and difficult to upgrade as new tech arrives.  why not just carry external solar?

    2) how difficult/pricey is it to add solar later if you decide you want it?

  4. Not sure if I should start a new topic.  Plz correct me if I'm violating etiquette.

    My wife and I are a couple of years from retirement.  We are pretty sure we will buy an EliteII as soon as we have the time to use it.  Yes, we are aware of the wait.

    The plan is to be on the road at least 3 months a year (more the first couple of years):  Visit lots of National Parks; take day-hikes till we bleed; and stay till we can't stand it anymore.  Then return home to play with the kids and recharge.

    We have camped and rv'd on vacations (2 weeks at a time) for years, but this will be a huge step up.

    I would like the trailer to be comfortable enough so we always find it inviting, but I'm not looking for a replacement for home (or even an air bnb for that matter).

    Why wouldn't I just buy the standard Ollie, with 0 upgrades, and celebrate my great luck?
