Random Oliver Picture Thread - post what you have, make us smile.


Recommended Posts

I hope we can continue to post feel-good pictures of our Olivers here. No special subjects, just pics you want to share with the forum.

 

You can post links to your videos too. I have started a collection of time lapse videos, some of which include “Mouse” in the foreground.

I washed the Ollie today after towing 3600 miles, the RejeX did great and the bugs came off with minimal labor. I used a gas leaf blower for the frst time, to blow off the water. It did great. I followed up with an easy wipe down with cotton rags and the trailer is shiny again....

I emptied the rear bumper bay and this is what the pressure washer drove out:

I wish there were an effective way to seal that space off from the dust.

 

Here is a Homegrown wood trailer (Kirkland Washington builder) we spotted at a rest stop.

We’ve only had a few adventures so far, but here’s a couple pictures. One is boondocking near Salida, CO. The other is my daughter reading during a rainy afternoon at Arapaho Bay CG- you can see that she has really made her little corner her own!

Pulled into Whitestar Campground on Twin Lakes in Colorado yesterday afternoon without a reservation and snagged a great campsite. When we walked up to our picnic table to check out view, imagaine our surprise, another Oliver!

Queued up last week at the Kingston WA ferry dock, before crossing to the Seattle area:

 

IMG_7361.thumb.jpg.fbd10e7475c4a5e8b0524e730ce3d4c6.jpg

 

The ticket taker took a single glance out his window, saw white fiberglass and wrote up the fair as "Under 40 ft"

 

[attachment file=Oliver Ferry ticket.png]

 

which saved us the price of a fast food meal... I don't know if he noticed that the Ollie was longer than "normal" as we passed by.

 

[attachment file=Ferry Fares.png]

 

I was hoping we could park at the extreme front end of the ship (it is not called the bow because the ships sail in both directions) so I could take some cool pics, but Mouse was buried deep inside. Taking the ferry is fun, saves about 90 minutes driving and 60 miles of gas in heavy traffic, and makes for a great way to get to or from the Olympic Peninsula and the National Park/ Pacific ocean beaches area.

 

[attachment file=wsf route map.pdf]

 

It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you time your passage so that you are not at peak rush time. We intentionally chose mid-morning on a Sunday, and there was zero waiting traffic to cross east to Seattle. Late in the afternoon would have been a different story....  If you don't study the schedule, you may end up waiting for several hours in a miles long line of RVs and day tourists. It can be very frustrating if you don't plan well.

John -

 

Mouse looks like it is nose up in the picture.  Is that just the angle or do you tow Mouse that way?

 

Good shot!

Hi Bill, no "Mouse" rides almost level, just very slightly nose high. If I had a dead weight ball mount I could fine tune the angle a little with washers under the ball - I wish the Anderson unit had a finer spacing between holes on the rack. There is plenty of metal between the existing holes. They could be drilled a little nearer to each other without losing any strength.

Just returned from a two week trip down in the southwest, thought I might show a couple of campground pics. Thanks for looking.

 

Love the night shot. Is that near Moab? These trailers are beautiful at dusk, with the puddle lights on. Very classy looking!

 

Might I suggest that when you are in such a stunning setting, try some two hour time lapse videos at sunset. It is easy with your phone, a RAM camera mount and a light tripod. There are special apps or you can try the built in one on your phone’s camera screen.

John, this campground is about 45 minute drive south of Moab fairly close to the Needles Overlook area and just before the turn off to the Needles on highway 191/89. Very nice area to camp and excellent campground host. We have stayed there many times though my wife could not make this trip, thus the solo chair.

 

Thanks

“Mouse” is pushed an extra 20 ft back into his insulated but unheated attached RV bay, AKA The Hanger Deck, for the winter so I can get my wife’s SC400 inside.  My adult daughter moved back with us unexpectedly and I had to find a parking place for a third car. That leaves no room at all behind the trailer or on the street side, and just enough on the curb side for this:

What’s inside? My little shop area and warmth - an electric oil heater keeps it comfy at about 60 degrees when the bay is 40 and the outside is 20.

The awning tube is resting on the shelves and two king sized blankets are clipped and cable tied to the awning. It will be another six weeks before the streets will clear enough for an early spring trip.

Twin Lakes WA, DNR land in the center of Washington State, near Odessa...  an Ice Age “Channelled Scablands” erosion feature. Free dispersed rough camping, fishing. Most folks leave by 600 pm, leaving it very quiet. Neat spot!

Philip, I need that hat. Plus a nice shirt.... When will we be able to buy Oliver branded merchandise? We have been asking for a very long time. Many of your owners are folically challenged and could put an Ollie hat to good use.

 

Thanks.

Hi John.

 

I had the hat made custom at a local shop here.  I will talk with Matt Duncan, our Marketing Director about when we can expect to see merchandise available.  I too have began to be folically challenged, :)

 

 

 

Best,

Tell Matt he is missing a big advertising market with us Ollie fanatics. If you had that hat made locally Matt surely could get some made before the rally and have them for sale there.? Tshirts would be nice too. ?

Somewhere along I-40 west, coming back from TN on the maiden voyage..... This is one reason we decided to call our new Elite II “Mouse”.

 

No license plate! We towed it bome without even a temporary and did not get noticed.... the gal at Oliver Trailers who was supposed to get the tag forgot. I don’t really recommend this.
