  1. Now I truly regret I did not order the rear hitch option on my Olie 😞
  2. I have a 25 Gallon tote waste tank, and that thing is huge, Barker 4-Wheeler Tote Tank - 25 Gallon Capacity (25895) , Blue https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002F66RE/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_25S5ZYXJEYJ82KD5Q51E?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Apparently it won't fit in the front basket. I tow with an SUV so I don't want to put the waste tank in the trunk, and I don't want it to go into Olie either 😞 Where do you put the portable waste tank when traveling? Thanks 🙂
  3. Haha, that's the WiFi booster of the RV resort, happened to look like it's on top of my Olie, but it actually stands on a separate pole. I do have a spot with very good WiFi signal 😁
  4. Thanks a lot, everyone! I am on this trip on my own. My husband is not into camping at all, so I would rather stay on the safe side 😞 I do agree towing in the Seattle/Puget sound area is more challenging than here in Tennessee, I guess that's the price we pay for having nice coast and mountains 😞
  5. Haha, this is not factory camping ground, though I wish the factory camping ground could be this good. I hires painted cowboy to deliver the trailer to Seattle. I think I am OK handling good weather, but not so confident on a 2400 mile trip with unpredictable weather.
  6. Camping around the factory before heading out to Seattle this Friday.
  7. Thanks a lot for all your replies! That helps a lot. I actually towed a travel trailers 4 times so far: one time with Ford 250 + some 23 ft RV of 3000lb dry weight, and 3 times with a Cadillac Escalade + 22 ft Airstream (dry weight 3900lb and GVWR 5000lb). Comparing all these trips, of course the Ford 250 + 3000lb trailer was the easiest drive simply because it was such a powerful TV dealing with a relatively small trailer. The Cadillac Escalade + Airstream was not as a good driving experience, but Airstream itself is really a good camper, and I enjoyed the camping part so much and those trips convinced me about owning an RV. However, even with Airstream, I observed the owner dealing with all kinds of small to medium issues (loose screws, faulty furnace etc) all the time, and the Airstream dealer was not helping much in those cases (The Airstream trailer belongs to one of my closest friends, so I know lots of those live examples). I expect that for all travel trailers, owner needs to fix some issues, but with better quality and customer service, the burden is much less. That's why I ended up order Oliver instead of the Airstream I loved, for its simplicity, quality and good customer service. Still kinda of nervous on if I can handle the fixes and other things later, but I guess I have to learn and adapt as probably Oliver is the one with least concerns. As of towing a trailer, I have to admit I still need lots of practices 🙂 Thanks a lot for all your support! Looking forward to my journey together with all of you!
  8. My Elite II is supposed to be delivered next March. Frankly speaking, I am quite nervous about what I just committed. I am not a handy person at all, hope the quality of Oliver will make my RV life easier than expected.
