New victim of the plant tour ;-)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We are Darrell and Kathy Waters and are currently on a western states trip (from Atlanta area) and on our way out we made our first stop in Hohenwald to tour the Ollie plant. I had done a fair amount of reading on the web so I was pretty interested/curious but had never seen one close up before then. Actually the first we'd heard of an Ollie was when we went to Alaska last year and we saw a couple on the road during that trip. Needless to say we were pretty impressed with what we saw in Hohenwald and have decided to put our current rig (Forest River 5th wheel) on the market when we return and hopefully we will be getting in the production line before long. We are spending time now reading and researching some options but at some point I may begin lobbing questions to some current owners for their input/suggestions.

 

The Ollie is a considerable downsize from our current camper (30ft with 3 slides) but all of the maintenance issues I have dealt with on this rig have been engineered out of the Ollie.....slides, bad tires, and roof challenges. I am prepared to sacrifice some living space for less maintenance! We hope to be joining the ranks soon :-)

Welcome to the growing family of Oliver owners and want to bes. We have been down the road with 5th wheels, class A motorhomes, and little Scamps. A wireless rear camera allows safe passing on Interstates (and being able to with a stable towing Oliver). Solar power for being able to stop anywhere. No slides to constantly mess with. A creature space that is easy to heat, cool, and clean. These all add up to allowing us to do what we want, or do nothing at all...

Obviously most of the owners of these wonderful campers have written that check - all for a reason.  AND, now you too know the reason(s).  Lob away with those questions - there are some very good minds here that just love the excitement of helping a (prospective) new owner get into our world.

Darrell and Kathy,

 

Welcome!

 

We're camping in the Ollie right now. There was a knock on the door yesterday and it was a couple wanting to see the Ollie. We spent about 30 minutes showing the Ollie inside and out. Told them we purchased the Ollie used and they thought it was brand new.

 

After getting up in the morning, make the beds up first, because many folks want to look in the Ollie after seeing the beautiful exterior finish.

 

Debbie and I like camping in our Ollie!   Time for Coffee!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome! So your drank the kool-aid too. Ours goes into production in October and we just can't wait! This is our first.  After literally years of no, not that one, over and over again from pop-ups all the way to motorhomes, the Ollie was the first and only, of any type that we felt wouldn't mean "throwing money out the window". Maybe we'll see you in May or "on the road".

Welcome to the Oliver family!!!  We have also owned several RVs including our last one a 40ft Dutch Star.  We full-timed in the Dutch Star 7 years ago for 2 years.  Today we full-time in our 2017 Oliver Legacy Elite II and are loving it!!  We are very happy with our Ollie.  Low maintenance along with lower cost upkeep, high quality, easy to travel and park with many more site options!!  You will have an exceptional manufacturer to back up your purchase!!

 

Even though we full-time we spend a lot of time in our "home" base of Auburn Alabama!!  Hope to see you down the road!!

Welcome.  We took the factory tour a couple years ago, and the rest is history.

 

We're currently in Montana in a 10 site forest service campground only partially full and had someone stop by our site to ask about our Oliver.  Everyone we've ever shown it to was impressed,  but more importantly,  we love it and can't say enough good things about the Oliver brand and company.

Darrell and Kathy, welcome to the family!  We've found that our Oliver has just the right amount of space for long trips with very few maintenance issues. You'll find support from the Oliver folks is top notch. Mike

Our Ollie is currently in production. We pick it up at the end of October.  This is our first RV. We went through years of research of all types and always came back to the Oliver. We can't wait to get it!  Congrats on your decision!

Welcome to the family. While you may think you are sacrificing living space, you will be greatly expanding living real estate, with how many more places you can go and fit in. And, at least you don't have to worry about having a big enough tow vehicle.

The only downside to owning an Ollie I have experienced since we towed ours home from Hohenwald to SE Arizona this past June is the embarrassment I sometimes feel in falling in love with an inanimate object. After we decided on the Oliver, which was after conducting considerable research on travel trailers, we asked a lot of questions on this forum, and greatly benefitted from the answers we received. Ask away . . .
