  1. I spotted this OLIVER traveling on 285 near Decatur/Atlanta. Was excited to see my first Oliver rolling down a highway. Name and number on back was "Bright Star" #451.....wonder if it belongs to a forum member?? Happy Trails....
  2. TST system, one color monitor, 2 sensors and a repeater. I got mine from Alice at Accent my ride in Duluth, Ga. The price was 239.00. She can get other items too. Nice lady, she met me half way in the Target parking lot. I know the price was right...alot less than the TST company she gets them from. I did not need the repeater on my 17ft Casita but kept it in case I need one on the Oliver. They work great and I was so relaxed knowing with a glance at the monitor that all was good. It monitors the tire pressure and the temperature. As you drive the tires and axles warm up and you can see the i
  3. I know those wood table tops are beautiful. Maybe a mix of maple and rosewood
  4. What attention to detail! Excellent job...makes my neck and back ache just thinking about how you "Houdini it" in such tight places....5 gold stars!
  5. Overland, when you say glued down do you mean adhesive in a tube, hopefully not 5200 marine type (never coming loose type) . I saw someone hard a sink cover up and it looked like they had installed 2 sided 3m extreme outdoor tape to secure top ( from a better shower head mod).nope, looking closer he used 3m velcro... be better off having corian counters made..a bit heavier but would not have to have them shipped back and forth to TN plus refinishing cost. Plus I could have a 4 inch extra added at stove side to give more counter space plus add a one burner and delete the 2 burner ( I ra
  6. How is the finish on the counter tops/tables applied, how are they removed/installed. If I purchase a unit with these how would you suggest I do this. I think if I took them out and let the factory do the finish the I would reinstall them ( I have done boats, camper and home upgrades/renovations in the past ).
  7. I am still in my Casita but wanted to say that I use my sink very little. I don't cook inside so clean up is done outside. I enjoy long hot showers and stay in campgrounds....I enjoy the walk to the showers...find them clean...I still wear shower shoes. And this may be TMI, but I never use the the camper toliet for anything but #1 and dispose of paper in a small lined container/trash can that I empty daily. Dumping is a breeze and I have zero issues. I really like having the camping adventure which reminds me of my younger days of tent camping...except now my sleeping is dry, warm/cool, not o
  8. The Escape camper company in Canada is making a 23 foot with 2 options, twin beds or a walk around queen. It's not an Oliver but it is a nice camper.
  9. I love my Camfro fan, it folds up out of the way and it being "gimble" can be turned in dozens of directions/ positions....check the utube videos ...made in Canada by a company that has been in business since 1955. I also purchased this $ 20 fan which is rechargeable with usb and I use it outside clipped onto my side table. It came from amazon.
  10. I used rustoleum spray paint after a light sanding to remove flaking or bubbling paint. After sanding, remove dust and oil (from hands) with a rag dampened with mineral spirts...let air dry before spraying paint ( make sure to let rags with mineral spirits air dry for a few days before putting in trash (possible fire ) . I used a heavy grease pushed down into gear area of openings. I used a lighter oil for hinged moving parts. The 303 on the seal of the lid and plastic covers.
  11. As far as the fit of the fan shroud base I chose to use a technique I found on utube. This was a fan I installed on a Nissan NV 2500 build but would be pretty much be the same on others . I cut 1/8 inch thick aluminum strips to go on top of the plastic to reinforce the base. I used mastic ( keep this in fridge until ready to use if it is hot outside...it will become a ticky mess if not kept cool/cold before use)and dicor self leveling caulk. I wanted to make sure the fan was not going to leak especially if the fan base became brittle in years to come. Overkill but I sleep well knowing I did e
  12. Here are pictures of the gear broken in pieces. And a picture of the new one beside it. The new one is better built. I order an extra one to keep on hand. I replaced the gear the hard way from inside. Remove the arms that raise the lid and used a very small socket w/Phillips bit. It is tight but doable. I cleaned, painted and lubricated all the metal arm parts. I also cleaned the rubber seal and applied 303 to protect it. I found it was sticking with dirt, grime, etc and believed that this may have contributed to the gear failure by cause stress on the gear when first opening after sitting fo

  14. Call the factory and see if they have replacements...or fInd out the brand of window and size...call the window factory and order new...that mildew will never come off once stained. I used 303 on all my weatherstrips, mouldings...I am detailing my 2004 truck that sits outside and the moulds are soft and not cracking....it works..great on tires, seats, dash....developed for the aviation industry...
