  1. Always be sure you double check the main door lock before traveling. I neglected to lock one time and the door came open in the middle of downtown Jacksonville, FL. We had to pull over in fierce traffic and get it closed and locked.
  2. This is an excellent museum in Fredericksburg. https://www.pacificwarmuseum.org/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwgMqSBhDCARIsAIIVN1U2OHwKzPgM2smWghf4ilznptdpjG0APazFL5cKZZZFfRK4ed9YM6IaAulqEALw_wcB
  3. Thank you for the info! My sister lives not too far from there in Center Point, so hopefully we will be able to stay at her property.
  4. We live not too far from the Southern Mattress family, so we decided to order our Ollie with only the provided foam cushions. We figured we could change to the mattress later if needed, but we've been comfortable with the cushions. My husband added a foam topper and I'm sleeping on just the cushions.
  5. We bought a mat before delivery, but we've actually only used it a few times, usually when we are going to be sitting around with guests. Most days, it doesn't seem worth it to get it out (and potentially get it dirty) and we're happy just to set up our chairs and table.
  6. Also look at city and county parks such as Manateee Hammock in Titusville, Moss Park in Orlando, and Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in Orlando.
  7. I don't have to get on my hands and knees, but I do try to be sure I don't bang the door handle on the floor, don't want it to get scuffed up over time. This heater is very compact and has worked well for us: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004473UK2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. We store 2 things via the "basement" interior door: our small electric heater when not in use, and the laundry bag. When the bag gets relatively full on a long trip, we move it to the truck and get out a new bag. Perfect spot for that purpose.
  9. We will be in site E33. This will be our first Ollie rally. I'll be bringing along some copies of my two camping devotional books. (one has a "hint" of an Ollie on the cover.) Let me know if you'd like for me to reserve one for you. (link to more info: amzn.to/3k9UTgu
  10. If you're in the Cape Canaveral area, the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is worth a visit: drive down the Black Point Wildlife Drive for birding. Someone we met there also recommended the Orlando Wetlands Park which is run by the city of Orlando but is east of there near Fort Christmas , across the road from Christmas, FL. This was a great spot as well.
  11. I would suggest watching this video: https://www.keepyourdaydream.com/payload/
  12. I made all our own bedding. If you buy queen bedding, cut it in half, cut the curves, and then serge the edges it will work great.
  13. Here's a video about the campground and the different areas:
  14. Also in E Loop, made reservations for 4 nights, starting on the 18th but may change that to the 19th once I see the actual schedule of events.
  15. Our is a 2020 (#676) and I am glad we were able to individually select options, rather than choosing packages. I'm also glad we were able to select colors/graphics. We did not have the lithium option, however.
  16. I love the white interior and would never change it. Plenty of ways to add color, and it wipes clean so easily.
  17. Congratulations from Hull #676! Definitely get the solar. It will open up many possibilities for boondocking.
  18. So beautiful, even when it's 11 years old. I enjoyed this salesman's description.
  19. We decided not to get the mattress upgrade for several reasons: - We live close to the Southern Mattress factory so we could add them later. It made sense to go ahead and get what was already included in the base price. -When I sat in a sample Ollie at the factory that had a mattress, for me it was less comfortable for sitting on during the daytime because my feet were at a different angle on the floor. Does that make sense? It was too high, even though I'm a 5'7" female. --The mattresses are heavy. If you use the provided cushions, it's easier to lift them up and access under the beds if needed. We also sometimes remove the cushions and bring them in the house in humid summer NC weather. We are very happy with our decision. I sleep great on just the cushions and my husband added a foam topper on his side.
  20. The trailer does not feel dark at all, lots of natural light and endless touch lights for great ambient light at all hours.
  21. In a few weeks I will be able to give a first hand report, but we are scheduled to stay at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston Va. There is a Metro station in Reston, part of the silver line.
  22. We have a metal stand/grill top that we place over our propane fire pit. Perfect for foil packet dinners such as Low Country Boil. For cooking inside, I do think it would be a challenge in the LE 1 but we have the LE 2 and it's not hard to make it work.
  23. If you wanted to head toward DC early, it looks like there are some sites left at Lake Fairfax Park near Reston. (also staying there in October so can't give details.)
  24. Did you try Shenandoah River SP in VA? I can't speak to what it's like because we haven't stayed there yet, but we have reservations there in October.
