Hello all! Just joined your wonderful forum today. We are a retired couple from Tennessee who are looking forward to owning a Legacy Elite II someday in the near future. So we’re newbie wannabes right now. We made the mistake, I guess, of first looking on line at the Legacy Elite II and now everything else just seems subpar. So, we’re pretty much sold out of the gate on Oliver’s quality and customer satisfaction. We continue to learn every day, mostly from this forum and other research what it’s like to own a travel trailer and why other brands of rv’s should be avoided. Once again, hello and we look forward to getting to know you all.

Welcome to the group!  Lot’s of folks here who like to answer questions, so ask away.  You should run over to Hohenwald and get a factory tour and meet all the great Oliver folks.  The showroom is worth spending time in to check out the floor models.  Mike

Welcome to the family (almost).

As with many other things in life - what you plan to do with your RV has a bunch to do with what RV you should purchase.  Hard thinking about the first part will lead you towards making a decision that you can live with for many years.  Many of the members of this Forum have in depth experience with a number of other types of RV's and can speak about the pluses and minuses of these.  Olivers are not perfect, but, in my experience they sure do beat the heck out of everything else on the market that is within $50,000 of the price.  Unless you are sure and/or have had a few years of experience, perhaps renting a couple of different types of RVs will give you the insight you need.

Good luck with your search and, as Mike said, ask those questions.  But, first, be sure to read, read, and read some more - it is likely that most of the "usual" questions have already been answered a number of times within the many pages here on the Forum.

I agree with Mike and topgun2 suggestions.

If you have never owned a RV, it is a good idea to rent (even a different brand) RV to make sure camping is for you.

Definately go to the factory to see the Ollies and to tour the factory to see how they are built.

Make sure your tow vehicle is appropiate to haul the Elite II.

Thanks for all the helpful advice. At this point we are still researching and gaining knowledge of something new to us. We are experienced tent campers and backpackers but time has put that in the rear view mirror, now. We will continue monitoring this most knowledgeable database for your insights.

Welcome to the forum!
Ask lots of questions as there is a lot of collective knowledge and know how here. Make sure you take a deep dive into Oliver University for lots of helpful info and videos. 

Our Oliver Travel Trailer is everything we need and nothing we don’t!

@Against The Wind - Welcome to the community!  We are backpackers and backcountry skiers, too - but we still absolutely love taking time traveling in our rig, "Casablanca."  We developed a "less is more" attitude while experiencing extended periods in the high-country of the Rockies and that attitude carries over to our OTT.  Like @Patriot mentioned (and Zak Brown Band sings) - "we've got everything we need and nuth'n that we don't."

Keep us posted on your acquisition!
