  1. hi bill! we actually ordered a custom cover for our elite II from calmarkcovers.com here is a screen shot of our measurements. it's a nice cover, seems like a durable material, easy to put on and very secure. we've had it for 4 months now and it's holding up well in the hot florida sun. the fit is not perfect but it serves its purpose.
  2. you guys are so awesome:)! i got the courage to look back at the facebook page and there are 10x as many positive comments as that one sad one:) when we see the trailer again (it's in storage) i'll snap some pics of wrap up close...seams, edges, etc...
  3. sorry for the dual posting, my computer froze up while submitting:)
  4. a bit of commentary, no need to respond, but this explanation is a bit therapeutic for me:) one of the unfortunate side effects of social media is the open vulnerability of posts/pictures to conflicting opinions. i was and still AM so excited to have had this wrap designed and installed for us. the wrap is a purely personal and custom work of love for myself and my family. i don't normally post to facebook and our account is actually a requirement in order to have a facebook business page (for our ice cream store). the posted album was an easy way to share the wrap with friends, who excitedly shared with their friends (including the oliver travel trailers' own facebook page)...but alas, one comment made me cry a bit inside, like a punch to the stomach: "oh! how sad (with an accompanying crying frowny emoticon)". i think the person thought i permanently disfigured my oliver??? well the answer to that thought (if it was thought?)is no... for anyone interested, the vinyl graphic idea originated with me seeing pictures of the 2 custom ollies painted black and red early on in production. i asked anita and the sales staff about options for color and they mentioned it was too costly an option to offer so instead i asked to leave the stripes off of the trailer and leave a blank slate. i did some research on after market options for color on the trailer, initially focusing on painting of fiberglass. very soon i found the option of vinyl wraps being a much more viable and reasonable solution. my first thought began with a simple different exterior color but as i continued with the research i discovered the infinite possibilities of a wrap, not just on the exterior walls but over the windows as well! fyi, the wrap is completely removable, partially or in entirety. the design we chose is completely personal and we love it, but i just wanted other oliver owners out there to know that other colors on your own oliver are possible:) this forum has been and continues to be a great venue for sharing and introducing ideas for completely novel and personal modifications and i thank everyone here for that! also side note: i'm researching the option of wrapping the interior window shades a bright white as an alternative to the spray paint. will let you guys know what i find out. thanks so much for letting me get this off my chest - yes ignoring other people's comments is an easy thing to say, but not so easy (for me personally) to do:) love you guys! tina
  5. thank you so much bill and randy! would love to see you guys or any fellow oliver owners at the ice cream store. (was not intentionally trying to advertise the store, btw...) please feel free to mention you know me and ken and we'll make sure you get the "tina discount":)! hope to meet you sooner rather than later:)
  6. thanks so much buzzy! hope to meet you soon as well - you are rapidly becoming our forum celebrity with all of your very helpful videos! we'll have to get a pic and autograph from you once we finally meet:) seriously, your videos and very detailed descriptions and thoughts about oliver are so very much appreciated. thanks to you for all of your contributions to these forums! tina and ken
  7. attached is a link to the pictures explaining our new trailer wrap:) http://imgur.com/gallery/d1fO2 [attachment file=doorside.jpg] hope to see you guys in the future:) tina and ken
  8. ADDENDUM: SEE POST BELOW TO EXPLAIN HOW THE IDEA OF THIS WRAP CAME ABOUT... attached is a link to the pictures explaining our new trailer wrap:) http://imgur.com/gallery/d1fO2 hope to see you guys in the future:) tina and ken
  9. cool! could you take a picture of what it looks like? just curious:)
  10. that's awesome information and thank you so much for the pictures to go with the description! tina and ken!
  11. thank you so much everyone for your insight on this info! that's very useful information that we hope to try out next visit to the trailer off site. we will "try" to lift up the thingy a bit harder and will research a bit on safes as well while we're at it! you guys rock! thanks again, tina
  12. bill you rock! thank you so much for those pics!!
  13. just curious as to why you didn't want them to mention it? i wonder why the wood top would not have the same storage feature? maybe not as easy to secure with velcro? ken seems to think that hidden storage area is where it is. any wood top owners who have the storage feature by any chance?
  14. we did not upgrade to the fiber granite so instead have a wood top equivalent in the picture above (from the trailer life article). our last trip to the trailer (stowed offsite) our wood top did not lift up to reveal hidden storage. just curious: for all the fiber granite option trailers do you have that hidden storage feature on your trailer? thanks so much in advance, tina
  15. the things i'm constantly learning from reading this forum! i did not know this but apparently the standard faucet has a stream/spray function. in the infamous Wincrasher video tour, at about 1:05:50 - 1:06:00 you can see how to switch the faucet from stream to spray. golly gee whilikers that sure is handy to know! (but i'm still going to try the showerhead idea;)
