Hello from Texas!

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are from Beach City,Texas.  We are planning our retirement which should kick off in about five years.  Our plan is to travel the country and find where we want to put down roots.  Our Ollie went into production August 17th and our delivery date is November 8th!  For now, our Oliver will be pulled with a 2016 Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab with a Cummins turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 Diesel engine.  We want to thank everyone on the forums and at OTT for sharing so many details which helped inform our decision.  We also want to extend a special thank you to Cobra 1169 for generously giving us a tour of his Ollie.

Welcome to the party!  Have a great time and enjoy.

 

My SO and I are in a similar mindset, going to spend time just wandering about, figure out where  we might want to stay a while.

Kenny & Penny -

 

AND, the fun starts. Congrates and welcome.  I simply don't know of a better way to see the USA.  Really not much time from now until delivery.  November would be a great month to head down the Natchez Trace towards New Orleans while you find your way home.

Congratulations Kenny and Penny...there will be much excitement ahead as you await your new Ollie. We pick ours up next Monday and we are so excited to be joining the club. In fact, sleep is now at a premium because we spend so much time planning our trip to Hohenwald, trying to think up "cute" names for our Ollie ll, planning ahead for future trips that are on our bucket list and just anticipating the joy of owning the finest built molded fiberglass camper in America! Good luck and we'll "SEEYA" on the road.

Welcome, you should have minimal hassles traveling south from TN ...  hopefully. We Northerners typically have to park the big pull toys by November.

 

I looked up your town. My brother-in-law lives 5 miles north of you....  The Ollie will make a terrific hurricane bug-out vehicle, especially if you ordered the solar stuff and big battery bank.

 

Have you towed anything yet with your Titan XD? Care to share any comments about that cool new engine?

 

Thanks,

The Natchez Trace is on our bucket list but it will have to wait for a later trip.  Work is still calling... For now!

Small world we live in! 5 miles north would put your brother-in-law in Mont Belvieu, am I right?  The school system our son attends is in Mont Belvieu.

 

We did get the solar and upgraded batteries just in case we do need to evacuate because we sit a mile off of Trinity Bay.

 

I haven't actually towed anything with the Titan XD yet. I got it for the great gas mileage and potential longevity of the diesel engine.  I think it's going to be more than adequate for pulling the Ollie. There's another gentlemen on here that pulls his Ollie with a Titan XD and he says it handles like a top.

 

Thanks for all your posts on the forum. They've been very helpful as we prepare for the big day!

Welcome from Maine

 

Two pieces of advice: Probably half the things you have gathered, in the spare room, can be put back. The chain saw and axe can go back, just keep the hatchet. The 100' of rope and clothes reel are a little too much. A light line and a few clothes pins will do.

 

Plan to get off the Interstate. Put the electronic apps in the glove compartment. When you come to a stop sign flip a coin. Heads to the left, tails to the right. Some of the best nights and sights of this country are hidden from the guide books. After all, that is the advantage of an Oliver... you don't need a 5 star campground.
