OK, I’m a new guy on this forum so be gentle with me. We’ve been traveling internationally continuously for 3 years and have decided to tour the US for a few years. Yes we are homeless and unemployed, aka retired. We would be living full time in our caravan, aka travel trailer. The Elite II is top on our list but we’ll need to see one before making a decision, obviously. We’re have been in Europe for 17 months. I am also looking for an appropriate tow vehicle and this is the real purpose of my post. My first choice is a 2019 Ford F-150 with the 2.7 L turbo. On paper it’s rated to tow over 7000 pounds and the total gross weights look fine, but the marketing people write those numbers. The question is will I be happy with the engine performance or do I need a more powerful engine? My brother, a long time F-150 owner and professional mechanic in Denver but does not tow anything has suggested that I would be happier with a bigger engine. If the turbo-diesel is offered in the XL I’d jump on it since I love diesels. I am soliciting your personal opinions/experience. I expect the responses to be all over the board, and that’s fine as there will be some valuable nuggets in there somewhere. Thanks for your help. tatlmt
I know most Olivers sold must be the Legacy II 23.5 feet model, but i personally love the smaller footprint of the 18.5 feet Oliver, making it more maneuverable and towable by a smaller vehicle. Two questions: 1) I would be interested to know what vehicle you use to tow your Oliver 18.5 feet? 2) Is there a place on this forum dedicated only to the 18,5 feet model? Thanks!
