  1. Good clarification. Thanks.
  2. I haven't thought about that before. I typically arrive empty and hook up water at the campground and fill, but I can see more boondocking in the Oliver so it might be useful to carry those six gallons extra.
  3. Hi all, you may remember that my wife was hesitant to buy an Oliver due to cost. We paid our deposit today! We chose November 7 as it's a Monday so if we encounter any issues we can high tail it back to the Oliver people before heading back to Oregon. Thanks for all your posts. It's been very helpful. You haven't heard the last from me. It's probably been the tip of the iceberg actually. Have a good weekend.
  4. I paid my deposit today also. Estimated 🚚 day of November 7. When is yours?
  5. Very fool proof. It's what we have done for years too.
  6. We're wrestling with the decision now. The 2023 will be higher. A guess when I talked to OTT was $4500 more. Part of the increased price will be offset by fewer months of paying for covered storage with electrical connection. The price for that here in our part of Oregon is about $250-350/month. My wife retires in December so with our weather, we figured we wouldn't really be able to use it much until April, 2023.
  7. I was talking to Oliver yesterday as we don't need the trailer until March/April 2023 and asked the salesman (name withheld) about what he knew about the 2023 model. He is quite sure it will be a higher price. Maybe $4500 more. He doesn't know what changes are planned. 2022 had several changes. I have read here that many people don't like the present A/C due to noise. There was a mysterious A/C on a unit that someone determined was a Truma. I would guess that they are looking at changing the A/C. Just my guess. We're not sure if we want to order for this year and save $4500 or wait to get the 2023.
  8. They accept absolutely no responsibility!
  9. Thanks. I read the article also. I wonder how common this is. I definitely will stay away from that town. Maybe a database should be started to alert us all where we don't want to travel through. Just a thought.
  10. Seems like a good idea. If the dump station is level (quite unlikely), what side of the rear of the truck should be raised with blocks and do you owners do that?
  11. That is a good argument for getting the 20 lb bottles. My wife who is 69 can dead lift 205 pounds. She's trying for 245. Maybe she could take out the 30 lb without breaking a sweat.
  12. How often do you need to take the 30 lb bottles out. Someone said that in some places (I think it was Vail) you can't pull the trailer up to the propane filling filling station and you need to remove the bottles for filling.
  13. It's a very popular road to drive. I am not surprised that they have superchargers.
