  1. Congratulations, Enjoy your Oliver and Safe Happy Trails.
  2. Thank You for this awesome post about winter travel with your Oliver! Your pictures are great and your trip sounds fun. There is too much negativity on this forum relative to winter travel, these trailers are very capable as are you it seems. Safe and Happy Trails Dan
  3. Oliver installed the larger coupler. It is an option, or it was on my 2021 model year build sheet.
  4. Albert, I am sure You will be very happy with the Weigh Safe Hitch. I use one as well and am very satisfied with it. The ability to instantly see adjustments you make to your payload is priceless in my opinion. Good luck and Happy Trails. Dan
  5. I agree 100% These Brakes work fine.... Sounds to me like someone has some serious issues that they are attempting to project onto others.,.,.,. Just Sayin
  6. Congrats! be safe and enjoy your Rig! I have a short must do mental list before I start my truck and that valve is on it. List is still a work in progress as I add things to the trailers contents. Happy Trails Dan
  7. You know, it actually was because the weather allowed me to leave all windows open every night for 14 nights and now that I have everything closed to keep out the cold I do not smell that "new smell fiberglass oder" that it had when I picked it up. So it was a good time to take it out for the first time. Thanks Again Dan
  8. I did, and I hope you all enjoyed Branson. You were correct I had no trouble making the Fresh Water, Grey and Black last for the 4 nights I was dry camped and could have doubled that at the rate I was going. Thanks again Dan
  9. Thank You for the well wishes, I did get some photos up. Today I pulled 540 miles in some respectable sidewinds that had the semis doing 65 on parts of HWY 90 and I am happy to report this thing sticks behind my truck like a 10 year old well trained hunting dog. I am very impressed (again no Anderson Hitch or any other sway control just whats shown above in the pic. Temps are lower here 40's and the heater is more than sufficient as well, One of the benifits of this smaller space is its quick to heat up and it stays that way easily, I am cheating with a three setting "vornado" brand Electric Heater that I saw someone else mention in a post and bought while I was in Kansas City at Target, it works well in here I have it set on low so the Oliver heater functions as well to keep the basement warm too.
  10. Hello Wayfinder, I suggest you inquire about a larger rental propane tank for your “full timer” situation. For my full time winter campers the local Propane provider delivers 110 gallon propane tanks and connects them to the RV and tests all connections as well for $45.00 a year tank rental.... it’s cheap and simple as they also deliver the Propane and fill these tanks so you do not have to haul your 30 pounders into town all the time. And the price of the fuel is lower than when you refill.... it is a win win situation trust me the only question is if it’s available there in your area. Dan
  11. Not one single thing to complain about, Thus far its everything I expected and more. Tows like a dream behind the One-Ton (no anderson hitch just a 2-5/16 Ball.) My tongue weight is 610 Lbs. Fresh Water Tank is Full rest empty. My Hitch provides the actual weight on the spot. I can imagine others have a much higher tongue weight as I am single and pack very light in comparison to most. I do have two 15 gallon water jugs in the front box that I bought filled and strapped there to increase the tongue weight because at 490 Lbs. (This was the exact weight when I pulled it out of the factory and for the first 500 miles before I put any of my stuff inside of it) I was feeling a bit more feedback from the trailer than I appreciate and I figured the additional weight would change its attitude. It did and having the extra water along is a plus until I hit cold country next week then I may change them out for a couple sand bags. Before JD tells me the front box is only rated for 150 Lbs... I know... Its fine and I will beef it up before my next trip. I will post a couple pics when I get better service or home I think this Weigh Safe hitch may be something others find helpful especially if your in a situation where tongue weight is critical due to your tow vehicle. A quick google of "weighsafehitch" and you will be looking at it. I can attest to the fact that it works well and is much faster then finding and weighing on a CAT scale at a truck stop especially if your experimenting with different weights to find your comfort zone. At any rate Props to Oliver for building a quality product in a time when that is not so common anymore and I was very impressed with their staff and how I was treated by them on my pick up day. They are all working hard to push these units out the door but they are doing it with Grace and I appreciate that a lot and they deserve the credit for it. I have attended three Nascar races in a row now (I did not have the Oliver yet for the first two) and will be dry camping in the infield of Kansas City Speedway this weekend, this will be my first time dry camping and I am sure I will exceed the tanks capacity but they do have service running there to pump and fill so I am REALLY not dry camping but I will give it a go and see how long I can get by.... Trouble is that insta hot water heater works very well and it only takes a handful of showers to top off the grey when the water does not get cold. Oh, and the towel hooks somebody was hating on in their blog? they work perfectly, my towels have not fallen off in over a thousand miles and I doubt they ever will but you DO have to know how to hang the towel properly on this style hook..... thanks Grandma for that lesson years ago! Happy Trails Everyone, From Guthrie Oklahoma... For Now...
  12. The equipment arrived rather quickly as described above, It is installed and working and the following are the results to date. Local Provider via Microwave type system; Mbps Download - 22.3 Mbps Upload - 1.91 Latency - 39 ms Star Link: Mbps Download - 152.9 Mbps Upload - 3.00 Latency - 40 Thus far Star Link is the ONLY option for us with these types of internet connection speeds. Now to see how reliable it is with our weather patterns. I personally have yet to experience it as I am sitting in Guthrie Oklahoma in Hull #928 (my pick up date was bumped up two weeks) but I was so happy to hear this report from my office that I decided to update my post here.
  13. Currently on a microwave system, not at all interested in using either of the companies mentioned above. If Starlink can provide anything close to what Annwnn describes in their post I will be very satisfied.
  14. I signed up and paid the deposit months ago, received an email yesterday with a $450.00 Payment due in order for them to send me the system and I could not hit the "take my money" button fast enough. I do not expect anything close to perfection, but where I am located in SW Montana the only thing available is 19-20 MB and that is already spotty so it wont take a lot to improve my situation. I will update as there is something to say, No, I do not know when I will receive the equipment, only that they did take my $450.00 and "its being shipped". This is not an RV system just the standard system. Dan
  15. If you have a recommendation of a Full Service Camp Ground that you have physically stayed at near Nashville, TN. I would appreciate your input/suggestions. I will book a week at the end of OCT so I can enjoy Nashville while also putting the RV through its paces near the factory after I pick it up. I am aware of the new campsite at the factory and David Crockett. I am looking specifically to set up closer to Nashville. I see there are several campgrounds available just figured I would see what first hand info this forum has on the subject. Thanks Dan
