  1. Picked up in June 2015 and no fading whatsoever.
  2. Three Olivers in Bakers Hole National Forest campground the other day, all within sight of each other. Our neighbor thought we were all traveling together. It was great sharing a meal, conversation and a hail storm with Theresa and Greg from Wisconsin and Bill (Topgun2).
  3. You won’t need reservations, but as you approach late September into October you will definitely need warm clothing. It snowed last year on October 16. We just returned a couple days ago from the UP and the nights were in the low 40’s. But it’s a great place to camp. Lots of State and National Forests, some of which close in September/October. Enjoy our great State.
  4. I like the size of the current LEII, but would really like a larger fridge. We rarely use the microwave, so I would be willing to have that space put to use for the fridge. Marsha
  5. Congratulations and welcome to the Oliver family. We got back from a monthlong trip a couple weeks ago and had someone follow us through town to our home, excited to see an Oliver. Happy camping.
  6. The sidebar is at the bottom of the page on my iPad, but in the correct place on my android device and Windows PC. Marsha
  7. Welcome. We took the factory tour a couple years ago, and the rest is history. We're currently in Montana in a 10 site forest service campground only partially full and had someone stop by our site to ask about our Oliver. Everyone we've ever shown it to was impressed, but more importantly, we love it and can't say enough good things about the Oliver brand and company.
  8. We went to Alaska last year and although we did buy the Milestone, we forgot it at home. We did, however, have an older and newer copy of Mike and Terri Church's book, Travelers Guide to Alaskan Camping. We found this book very helpful, and not as confusing as the Milepost looked. We also took thousands of pictures and trying to find one or two that were the best is difficult. We did make it to the Arctic Circle on the Dempster, but we only took the truck and stayed at the hotel in Eagle Plains. We want to head back when the road to the Arctic Ocean is complete and feel taking our
  9. We're headed that way in a couple weeks. Hope it's not too smoky. http://inciweb.nwcg.gov is a good resource for current wildfire information.
  10. We have a mid-2015 Oliver LE II. The refrigerator fan compartment is lined with some type of silver insulation material that keeps falling down and hitting the fan. We've tried taping it back up, but as soon as warm weather hits and we have to run the fan, we find out it has fallen down again. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, what have you done to stop it from falling down? I should mention the factory used some type of silver tape, we used duct tape on the fly and now we have gorilla tape trying to hold it up. Nothing seems to work. Marsha
  11. Thanks for fixing the link - new iPad user. Still figuring things out.
  12. Welcome from fellow Michiganders. We fell in love with Olivers two years ago and put over 31,000 miles on ours since pickup. We've had other fiberglass trailers in the past - now we have the best.
  13. The Ed half of our team found these stick on brackets and used 1/4 inch wood for the dividers. Customizable and pretty easy. The can be purshased here http://www.leevalley.com/us/hardware/page.aspx?p=74182&cat=3,43722,43743
  14. We were in Michigan the past couple weeks. We did have someone excitedly wave and flash their lights earlier in the week in Michigan's U.P. Makes you wonder who and why.
  15. Today is our two year anniversary with Hull #85 and over 31K miles and countless memories. We couldn't be happier.
  16. Got a few black fly bites. Too cold and early for mosquitoes. We're in northern Michigan.
  17. On the road. Heading home after a great week camping in the north woods.
  18. From reading the original post, I believe the intent of the curtain and rod is to provide privacy in the bathroom with the small window in the open position. This is especially important if you're showering and the bathroom window is open. My solution was to take a microfiber cloth that's slightly larger than a washcloth and place it diagonally over the window and tuck a small corner into the space where the two parts of the window come together. The result is privacy, air flow and something handy to wipe down the walls after a shower. Marsha
  19. I think the Oliver is so well built, critter intrusion will be a non-issue. We store our Oliver on our property under a CalMark cover and have not had any problems.
  20. The US Postal Service will hold your mail for a maximum of 30 days. We have a friend check our mail and bring it into the house, sorting magazines and flyers from other mail.
  21. You may want to consider joining this Facebook group: Oliver & Molded Fiberglass trailers
  22. Congratulatons Lukens'! You're going to love the Oliver and be blown away by the quality. We also have the king bed and one option was a mattress for the bed, which is actually a split king. One suggestion I might make (as the person who makes the bed) would be to use twin bed mattress pads and fitted sheets, then use a king flat sheet and blankets/quilts. I did trial and error with king sheets and it's easier all the way around with the twin size sheets. Other options we have and are glad we got are the inverter, cell booster, four T105 batteries. We also got the Winegard antenn
  23. Thanks, Bill. Thought it might be something like that. Horace - I'll have to get back to you on what model AC we have.
  24. Since we normally camp in national forest campgrounds without electricity, we haven't had much of a chance to try out the heat strip on the air conditioner. While we were in Alaska, the Yukon and northern BC we had both electric and cold overnight weather on occasion. We don't normally have the heat on at night, but in the morning, when turning on the heat strip we noticed the furnace would go on and heat would come out both the vents and the AC unit. Is this normal, or is this another wiring issue we're experiencing?
