  1. I am very interested in a CO rally. My vote would be River Run. Thanks for the effort. Looking fwd to it! Bill
  2. I am no RV expert. My wife and I have rented two Airstreams (a late model Flying Cloud 25 Twin and a brand new Caravel 22). My only experience with Oliver has been online research and we were shown an Elite 2 recently by local owners. We really liked both brands. With that caveat, we decided to place an order for an Oliver. Here are the primary reasons: 1. Fiberglass vs aluminum. We typically spend at least half our summer in the CO mountains and we have been in several (if not dozens) of hail storms. I suspect the aluminum might not last through a major hail storm. 2. I
  3. This is it ^^^^^^ How much would a trailer built like an Ollie with these features weigh? I am not sure I would be willing to tow it. How much more would I pay? $85k - $95k???
  4. Have any owners installed the Airhead toilet in their Ollies? I would love to hear thoughts on how it performed and specifically how it was vented in the Oliver, and specifically where the fan was installed, whether it is necessary to install one or two fans, and whether the air flow created by towing created a problem. I know that Oliver offers an option to install the Nature's Head, and the venting may be similar issues, although the Airhead fan tends to be installed away from the toilet and at the Nature's Head tends to be installed on the side of the toilet.
  5. I, too, have only see these articulting hitches on smaller trailers (offroad teardrops or teardrop-like trailers). But, after looking at the McHitch - as described in this thread, I started thinking about it for an Oliver. The Lock & Roll just seemed to be a potentially simpler solution, but honestly I have not researched in depth. I am concerned about backing a trailer with these hitches. How will the trailer respond? I think one of the benefits of the small, lightweight trailer is that you can move the trailer by hand in a pinch. Not happening with a 6k pound trailer. I do
  6. @Overland & @Raspy - Great information about this hitch and jack. Thanks for your effort to write this up and share it with us. Did either of you consider the Lock & Roll hitch? (https://locknroll.com/) I am interested in your thoughts or if others have installed on their Ollies. Thanks again, stay safe. Bill

  8. Looks very nice and functional. Nice build. Congrats!
  9. In researching this topic, I came across a post from BackofBeyond. He has built his own covered "Ollieport". Nice work and good inspiration.
  10. Where so you store your trailer when you are not travelling in it? Do you keep it at home or in a storage facility? Is it covered? Climate controlled? Do you connect it to water/sewer/30A hookups when in storage? When you are not travelling, how often do you access your trailer? This will be our first travel trailer (RV of any kind). We will probably travel in it 4-6 times per year and I am wondering about storage and maintenance. I would love to keep it at home (for ease of access for maintenace and mods) , but I have no covered facility here. I would love to hear your advice and
  11. Hello Oliver fans - Wife and I are looking at trailers online and came across Oliver. They appear to be well-made. Maybe someday soon we can join you as owners. Until then - we will continue our research. Happy (and healthy) trails- Bill
