Both for those that missed attending this year's Rally and for those that were there, Steve's Road Trip Chronicles has posted the first of a two part series about his experience at the Rally.  This part one includes remarks from Rodney Lomax at the opening reception.  A big thanks to Steve (and Oreo) for posting this!

Steve:  Great video. Thank you for taking the time and devoting your skills to produce it.

Participants:  Did you hear of any OTT reactions/comments relative to the failing Dexter Springs?

Thank you,

AKA @shhQuiet here on the forum. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Steve, and when he walked over to Curiosity, Deb made a beeline to Oreo! 😁

As to NOT derail this post. I did hear a few comments and it was basically that the failure rate was so low it was not of much a concern at all. And I agreed, the leaf spring horse is dead, it’s a nothing burger. Carry an extra leaf pack, or spend the lettuce and upgrade to a 5 leaf pack and get on with traveling enjoying your Oliver. 
 

This was the best rally ever in our experience. Everyone was chilling, grilling, making new friends, greeting old friends and having a fire side blast and enjoying their Oliver’s. Some of the fire side tales were actually true. 😄

Thanks Patriot.  Believe it or not, your update is appreciated.

But since you chose to again mention your approach on springs:  There is a hand full of owners that believe a heavier duty, more compliant 4-leaf spring is a more appropriate option for the 6,000 pound OE2 fleet use.

Out of courtesy to this thread, I'll leave it at that.  If you will.

Thanks for posting the link!  I meant to add it here but it slipped my mind.  Then I saw youtube showing that I was getting a lot of views from olivertraveltrailers.com and I figured someone had posted it 😄

Yes, I didn't get everything, but it would have been an hour long just from his remarks.  Maybe next time I can setup a better camera on a tripod and get the whole thing.

Thanks, appreciate it.  Didn't hear anything specific from Oliver about the springs...

Thanks Steve, appreciate you and Deb being so friendly and welcoming!

 

Hopefully will have part 2 out in a short while, with the Cathedral Caverns trip and also a few of the open house tours
