  1. New concrete floor slab 12 inches lower. Vertical walls poured. New outside entrance concrete ramps poured & shaped. A 10 ft entrance door installed. All we need now is an Oliver Trailer. 9:00 a.m. Hohenwald, Tennessee Monday September 26th...
  2. SeaDawg. No the original contractor is not involved with this project. A couple of us are the main crew doing the work and we are bringing in contractors as we need equipment and/or a couple younger/strong backs. Standard concrete project design and construction. The finish project will have vertical concrete walls pinned into the existing slab & the building footings. The vertical walls will also have angle rebar connecting to the floor slab rebar. No remaining exposed soil. Fun project and not "Ollie love"; simply when you live in Wisconsin you don't spend $70K+ on a new toy and have it sleep outside in the winter.
  3. Too much of a pre & post trip hassle. Soon, just back it in and done!
  4. John the project is now ovet excavated to allow for the placement of gravel before pouring the floor. There will an additional floor drain installed in the center of this bay in the new low point. The new door will be a full 10 feet. The floor will slope in to a maximum new additional depth 1 foot down where the Oliver wheels are. This allows good clearance under the garage door opener.
  5. Back in February I was searching for advice of how I could reduce the Oliver overall outside height because my extra building garage door height was approximately (and only) 3 inches too small. Potential solution advice included raising the ceiling and/or door height, installing different but smaller AC, letting air out of the tires, taking the tires off and more. None of the ideas, while appreciated, just didn't appeal to me and/or would not work. So...I am lowering the floor! See the attached photos. We install steel rod and pour concrete during the next couple weeks. Photos of (the successful?) the completed project to be shared in the future.

  6. Heard from Oliver Inc today. The "no microwave" option is no longer (2022 orders) any more. Disappointed...
  7. What does the inside space of where the microwave would have been installed look like? Is it finished or is it rough? Is it possible to get a Oliver door for the space to match the others?
  8. Is it an option on a new LE2 order to NOT have a microwave installed? If not an option; has anyone removed the microwave? End result? Problems or went well? Finished empty space how? Please share pictures if possible. Thanks
  9. I just sold my nuCamp TAB 400 Boondock Lite and will get delivery on an Oliver in September. Davies is correct the Alde heating is very good and I do not look forward to force air. However we plan more colder shoulder season camping and we are giving Oliver a go as it appears better than my TAB 400. If we wish another change we can always go back to nuCamp in a couple years. nuCamp and Oliver are both are such a higher quality overall than so much of the rest of the RV world.
  10. Designing some modifications to my storage building for my future (September 22) Elite II and I seek some measurements. I thought I had previously seen a diagram on the website that included them, but can not find again. I need the measurement from the hitch end to centerline of the front axle and from the back bumper to the centerline of the back axle. Can someone please either direct me to the location of the required Oliver diagram or provide the measurements? Thanks Door County, WI
  11. I have a LE2 ordered for next September delivery. I store my current (NuCamp TAB 400 BD Lite, which is for sale.) trailer in my extra garage and intend to do the same with the Oliver; however my garage door is 4 inches too short. I have a construction plan in the works to lower the floor and install a taller door. This plan will work but will cost a couple dollars. Recently I wondered whether a different approach would work? The different approach is to replace the Oliver installed AC and fan units with lower (4.5 inch+) profile units. Plan A will cost a fair amount so I do have a sizable budget for Plan B. I asked of the learned Oliver owners (some have already replaced both units) are the AC and fan units on the market that would lower the profile by 4.5 inches or more? Thanks.

  13. Topgun2, I do not understand wider at knees. Please explain.
  14. We want our cake and eat it too. We are interested in the twin beds to gain the center walkway, but we want the king bed at night. It is our understanding that some Oliver owners have come up with a support system to cover over the center walkway to make a king bed; some sort of support platform we understand. Is anyone aware of such a system? Comments and/or advice? Pictures? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
