Hi, I am going to buy a travel trailer in the near future. I have been doing my research and have narrowed it down to the Casita and Oliver. My question is, I have a 2007 3.8L V6 263 horsepower Kia Sorento. Will my vehicle be able to pull this trailer. I have the draw tite towing package on my Suv. But my towing capacity is only 5,000lbs. Can someone help me. :D

Hello Forum members - Terry and Cathie O'Brien, Boulder, Colorado checking in. We just did a rapid transformation from new wannabes (three weeks) to actual newbies, (two days). We had been lurking about the Oliver board after looking at the Casita board and seeing the name Oliver mentioned a couple of times. After checking out the Oliver on line and getting additional information, we thought we would see if we could make it work in the spring of '09 sometime. On this very forum we saw a mention of a few demo models that were priced very attractively. A phone call to Jim Oliver on Dec 31st (he was in Lake Havazu, AZ) transpired into a quick trip to Alburquerque, NM to meet Jim with Oliver Elite #36 on Jan 2nd. Needless to say, we are thrilled about the possibilities going forward. We just got home two hours ago and are reviewing the manuals to see what we need need to know. We are looking forward to meeting you fellow Oliver owners in the future and seeking your advice and experience.


Thanks! Terry and Cathie O'Brien (OB1) and (OB2)
