  1. I’m looking for the dimensions of the upper cabinets and the drawers. I would like to plan a storage system for the Elite. Please don’t spend too much time on measurements. I was hoping for a simple solution. carl
  2. Is there a measurement index for the ELITE I? I can’t seem to locate one. Carl
  3. Thanks John! I don't plan on pulling the Oliver on anything but graded forest roads, nothing severe at all. When boondocking, I plan on using the trailer as a base camp and taking the Jeep Gladiator out, without the trailer attached, on more rugged terrain. Carl
  4. New information... (at least for me) As I am digging into this a bit further, I just learned that the 30A receptacle on Honda Companion is not an RV plug but a twist-lock plug. You will still need an adapter to plug your RV plug into the 30A receptacle. According to ADKCamper, "The 30A receptacle on the companion model is a 3-prong twist lock (L5-30R), whereas the standard shore power cord terminates with the RV-specific 3-prong straight-bladed plug, aka TT-30P. While electrically compatible (125V/30A max, hot/neutral/ground connection), the two connectors are not physically co
  5. "So, can the companion model be used alone?" Yes, you can run the Companion (Honda EU2200ic) stand-alone. The advantage to that is you don't need an adapter plug to attach to your trailer. Either unit can be run stand-alone. To get the full 30 amp service though you must have the standard and the companion product connected and running together. If you have the easy start option on your air conditioner I believe you can get by with a single generator. If you want to run the A/C, microwave, and hair dryer at the same time, you will need both units. I imagine that
  6. Thanks to all for your thoughts and responses. It is much appreciated. I have already learned so much from this forum. A bit of good news! I made the initial down-payment to lock in our delivery date. Mid October is a long way away but I am still very excited. To bring this thread to a close, I have decided to include the Andersen in my configuration. Since I want to take the Oliver off-road on logging roads and appropriate backroads as well as many mountains passes, I believe the Andersen will give me an additional level of "insurance" to ensure proper weight distribution over t
  7. Greetings! This a common misconception about the Jeep Gladiator. There are multiple references about the Jeep Gladiator having components from the RAM truck. I thought I would share some references here to help clarify. From Cars.com Not Just Some Wrangler With a Bed "Yes, the Gladiator looks like a four-door Wrangler Unlimited with a cargo bed slapped onto the rear end. However, Jeep likes to point out that there is more than meets the eye. Compared with the Wrangler, the Gladiator rides on a longer wheelbase, has added structural reinforcements to boost towing capacity,
  8. The Jeep GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating) for the front axle is 3100 LB. The Jeep GAWR (Gross Axle Weight Rating) for the rear axle is 3750 LB. The GVW for the Jeep is 7,000 lbs. The Jeep Gladiator has inherited the RAM 1500 truck frame, brakes and suspension so I feel it can handle the Elite I without much problem. I believe the towing margins for the Elite II are too narrow. It might be able to pull it but I believe it will put too much strain on the Jeep. My real concern at this point is whether or not I can pull the Elite I without an Andersen hitch. I guess the hitch
  9. We are still trying to procure a Yamaha 2200i generator for our 2021 Elite II. We prefer the Yamaha over Honda mostly for the fact that it has a 30amp plug; Honda does not. Greetings! I have been doing a good deal of research on generators lately and I have discovered that Honda does make the EU2200ic that does have the 30 amp plug. The”c” in the product code stands for “companion”. To get the full 30 amps of power you have to purchase the standard EU2200i and link them together. But you can purchase the “companion” version buy itself and run it standalone. This what I pla
  10. Greetings! I am a "soon" to be owner of an Elite I. (My booking will be in mid October, 2021) My tow vehicle is be a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with a tow rating of 7,000 lbs. I feel confident that it can do the job with some margin. I have been lurking around this forum for some time, learning all that I can. You owners are a wealth of information and are very generous with your time. This is my very first post. I just met another Elite I owner tonight and he assured me that an Andersen WDH is not necessary for my setup. I was planning on purchasing the Andersen hitch but wanted to
