Hi Daniel, I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Yes, the price has gone up but it’s gone up on everything, everywhere. A lot of the cost increase is for materials. You may consider buying used, that will knock down the price as opposed to buying new.
Interior: We went from an Airstream to the Oliver and while I do miss the wide expansive windows in the AS we find the Oliver quite comfortable for just my husband and I.
Give Oliver a call and they can tell you where the closest Oliver is near you that you can go take a look at. If possible schedule a tour of the factory.
Storing-We are lucky in that we can store our Ollie at home but it is a justifiable concern if you need to find a facility to store it. I know many store at inside/outside storage facilities but it is costly.
Whatever you decide, take your time and you will find the perfect fit for you.
