Peak Mountain Camps trailers


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knows much about them and how they compare to an Oliver.  Not finding much on the internet just doing a quick search.

Cool, a homemade camper using a utility trailer for the base/frame and using a sheet metal carport/outhouse for the cabin. Ingenious!

Yeah, but you can get one with a wood burning stove!

To answer the OP's question, no comparison. Oliver uses much better materials in their construction. Aluminum frame vs steel, fiberglass walls vs aluminum. Double pane windows. It goes on from there.

Looks to me that if you go to their website - https://www.peakmtncamps.com/ - and read after...

NO comparison, what a PoS! I don't even need to review the specs as this flat-front shell has paneling like the cheap awning I built 20 years ago, for a few hundred bucks, attached to a backyard shed.

We would be embarrassed to tow this behind our vintage TV that is prettier and has more class (looks great pulling an Oliver). Should be $40K list vs. $100K of OTT value, but I imagine they are asking twice that. Sorry, but you asked, I answered. And sorry, as I'm not often as polite as some of our Oliver friends! 🤣

Suggestion: buy a used Oliver instead, as we could not afford a new one either. It will hold its value and serve you well.

Thanks topgun2, I have those links and have visited both websites. 

Generally, I don't highly value information on mfg websites, or YouTube videos by salesmen. 

I do highly value forum discussions by experienced owners of a particular RV, and discussions with mechanics. When I hear of consistent similar mechanical, service, and mfg problems from owners, that gets my attention. 

All of the above comments (yes, I was a little slow on the get back) are similar to my initial observations...Unfortunately, I could not find an owner's forum for that RV to research, which was my biggest reservation leading me to see if anyone on this forum had actual experience with one. 

And yes, as one member alluded to, it is a very heavy and wind susceptible trailer that requires a one-ton truck minimum tow vehicle which is probably not enough for some situations. 

And I don't have any problem with tone, or politeness concerns, subject matter, words used, opinions held, etc. What is more important to me is honest, direct discussions and the basis for certain opinions that don't necessarily stand on their own without the supporting information. 

So, thanks one and all. Cheers.

In my native "Minnesota nice" tongue,  we'd say "that's interesting."

Would never make it to a short list, for me.

I have been following their YouTube page for years now. If you are a sheep herder or hunter they may work out fine. I like the wood stoves but after 30 years in Alaska and 17 years in North Idaho, we are looking for warmer weather and not needing a wood stove 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=peak+mountain+camps

Looks like a big bunch of wind resistance to haul around too

I have seen many variants of home made Sheep Camp units in Utah and some in Colorado.  They are not designed for extensive high way use.  Most are hauled up the mountain and then moved a short distance to the next grazing field.  Then the next year towed back to the first location.  These however are way nicer than what the sheep herders I have seen using.
