  1. Do you know if Suburban is still using the same boards on new units? We opted for the Suburban due to mechanical simplicity and ease of repair but if the thing is going to blow up every year we might consider switching to the Truma.
  2. That is encouraging. We too are moving from tent camping so at this point everything seems like a luxury 😁 Interesting. The night stand, while aesthetically pleasing, eats intothe seating around the table. With 2 younger kids, the extra space for a butt seems critical. We're still thinking that adding the lagoon mount to the king floor plan will allow us to ditch the table in the future should we decide it isn't as usable as we thought. Having the factory add the twin extensions is always something we could opt for later if our plans change. If anyone wants to point out flaws in my logic, please do! πŸ˜ƒ
  3. Are you using the factory padding or something different? We're starting to seriously considering changing our order to the standard king layout; sleeping on benches with standard cushions and the table set up most of the time *seems* doable but I haven't seen anyone discuss this as being a workable solution 😬 The bench width is a little larger than our tent sleeping pads so I think I have some type of reference for what the sleeping experience will be like. If anyone does something similar, let me know!
  4. Would a different shock alleviate some of that travel or would the entire axle need to be upgraded? We're interested in pushing ours a bit so I'm curious about what options might exist.
  5. I wonder if this has anything to do with the change: https://rvbusiness.com/dometic-announces-closure-of-lagrange-ind-plant/ Anyone know where Girard manufactures?
  6. I was afraid of that. I wonder if they switched due to supply chain issues.
  7. Thanks! If I get specifics, I'll update the thread.
  8. I've spoken to sales about the warranty. They don't have specific paperwork on it yet but told me they believe the same warranty offered by LifeBlue would apply when sold with an Oliver. https://www.lifebluebattery.com/ewExternalFiles/Warranty .pdf (yes, the space is actually required before the file extension.) They said information would eventually be posted in the university section. While I'm sure the batteries will last at least 10 years when properly cared for, LifeBlue as a company seems super sketchy. Without assurance from Oliver that they will handle the warranty claim, I'll probably drop the LiFePO4 upgrade from my final order before my build starts. I'd rather spend more on something from a company that actually has a history honoring claims or even just a history of selling batteries πŸ€ͺ
  9. Fritz, did someone at Oliver tell you they are switching to Girard awnings? If so, did they say why and which models they will be using?
  10. πŸ˜†They specifically mentioned "a place to plug in your CPAP machine," so at least they understand the problem that was created.
  11. I received a partial answer from the sales department regarding the 110v outlet situation for 2021 trailers. First, an exact reason for the floor level 110v outlet removal was not provided; however, they did specifically mention Canadian regulations at one point in the conversation. The good news is that the 2021 models should have a new 110v outlet somewhere close to the pantry area opposite the stove. I couldn't nail down exactly where the outlet would be during our call. If anyone is able to get better information, please update us!
  12. Does anyone know how wide the benches are in the non-twin layout? My guess is 25 inches.
  13. Interesting! Thank you for the great information. I'm guessing quite a few people were not aware of that.
  14. I've seen a lot of well executed table ideas for the twin bed table setups like Overland's excellent 8020 Lagun mount. Still, I have a hard time ignoring the usable space that the standard wrap around table option provides. This is especially true for insane families of 4 that still opt for the Oliver. πŸ€ͺ I've poked around the forums but couldn't find anyone entertaining the idea of using a marine mounted adjustable table that could drop both the rear dinette and the smaller front table down to the bed position. While this option would still be annoying to perform on a daily bases, it would be far less than obnoxious than removing the current legs every night. Is anyone aware of someone that has performed this modification? If not, can anyone speculate on why this hasn't been done other than the simple fact that something like 80% of Olivers sold opt for the twin layout? Is there anything special about how the current table mounts are screwed into the fiberglass? e.g. extra fiberglass reinforcement or backing plates? Thanks!
  15. The entire night stand top can be removed with 4 screws? It looks like it is part of the mold? I love your custom bracket by the way. I've had your post bookmarked for at least 2 years. πŸ˜ƒ
