  1. Just open your awning about a foot and it will shield the curbside window. That's SOP for us when we set up camp. Works great, and at 12" the awning isn't extended far enough to catch any wind, so you can leave camp or sleep without worrying about it. One of the main reasons for opting for the second awning IMO is to be able to do the same on the street side.
  2. Well I hate to see it being flipped instead of going straight to a lucky owner, but even with the markup it's still a good deal.
  3. It's a good strategy, and you wouldn't have to remove the awning. Just add your support to the bracket like Oliver did with my rear ones. I'd originally asked them to do all the panels in a single raft like above, but Oliver was concerned about the height and how to attach the rear. I think they were limited in thinking that they had to start at the usual height. If they'd done them all off the awning mounts, but an inch and a half higher than they made the rear ones, then everything could have floated just a hair above the roof and would have looked pretty slick imo. Of course you'd want to hinge everything, for maintenance alone if not for solar gain. I can clean under the rear panels, but it's a pain. You'd want to hinge it in two or three sections though to make it manageable. I'd love to see someone do an install of just the narrow panels, like this - three per side -
  4. Looking good. Curious to see what your rear attachment is going to be.
  5. I'd say remove the blinds, make sure that the strings aren't bound up in any way, and if not, try rubbing some wax into them. There's also a tension spring that you could try stretching, or retie the string with a little more slack. Be careful you don't overdo it though, since the lower blind depends on that friction to stay up. In fact, the complaint has typically been that there isn't enough friction to hold the lower blind all the way up.

    Hull #

    Looks like your Ollie is a 2016, in which case your hull number will be the last three digits of your vin. That applies to most(?) owners, but I think in 2020, perhaps 2019, the hull and vin numbers stopped corresponding. Here are instructions on adding maps: https://olivertraveltrailers.com/forums/topic/2567-how-to-add-forums-signature-maps/
  7. I just may have to give in this winter and bling out Snowball with some of Foy’s goodies. It all looks so nice.
  8. I can’t say 100%, but I think it’s a standard handheld shower hose like this.
  9. Thats true - I added ½" pvc, and there's just enough clearance to the hatch cover that it won't vibrate against it. Maybe ½" or ¾" clear, I'd guess.
  10. You can get it on amazon - https://www.amazon.com/starboard-marine-board/s?k=starboard+marine+board
  11. You could use starboard, which is an upgrade from the PVC boards that they use. A little bit denser, I believe. Or wood, just screw/glue it to the existing board. The epoxy Oliver uses to attach those boards is <STRONG>, so long as they used enough of it and didn't just drizzle it on (it's expensive, I hear, so used sparingly). But you could probably use it to attach a block to the front of the trailer and tow with it (not recommended). I don't know about attaching electrical stuff to aluminum plates. Most of those components will have chassis grounds, which means that when you screw them to the plate, the plate will have a path to ground as well, and if a positive wire comes loose, there's a good chance it's going to land on that plate. Sparks, melted aluminum and all that. If you do it, I'd use some good strain relief on all the wiring (which you should do anyway - I see so many people dismiss that step).
  12. We always have the Rand McNally in the truck, but the Benchmark state atlases are our favorite resource for trip planning. For topo, I think iPhone/iPad apps are your best bet, so long as you download the maps ahead of time. Gaia and Garmin are probably the first choices, but I've just downloaded Topo Maps+ to try and it seems decent. Avenza is another - not my favorite, but I've had to use that on occasion for downloading government maps.
  13. Post a pic when you get it. I’d love to see Foy’s version.
  14. It looks like they no longer make the XLT in anything smaller than a 31" tire, which I guess is why I can only find the LT in 225/75/16. Still a good tire, though.
