Larger Oliver?


Recommended Posts

We are hoping to begin working on a larger "Oliver" by the end of the year. This is not

written in stone yet, but that is our tentative plan. I will give all of you the scoop as soon as I know something definate!!!





I'd be glad to provide input as a prospective buyer if you ever do that sort of thing. My wife and I have owned a 31' Carri-Lite fiver, a 22' Arctic Fox TT, a 31' Arctic Fox TT, and a 26' Holiday Rambler TT (the current rig). We've also owned a number of boats so we know our way around fiberglass ...

Well, since a larger Oliver is in the preliminary stages how about if we provide some suggestions or items we would like to see included?


Larger bed oriented front to back

Front window or generally more windows

More outside storage - maybe something like the new Bigfoot front mounted storage unit

On board generator or something built-in to accommodate one

Dual axles
