Hello from Charlotte NC


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


This is Kim and Travis, originally from Oklahoma and Iowa respectively, we have both lived in Charlotte since the late 90's. We have a 15 year old son that is quickly getting way to popular for us, and two small Boston's that get us out on a walk pretty much every night. I grew up camping with extended my extended family in tents, popups and various campers, but wasn't quite sure what my wife would say 5 years ago when I showed her a picture of an orange Marmot tent. Well, that tent has served us well, many great memories...but, last week we sent in our deposit for an Elite II and we sure are excited!  This will be our first travel trailer. We asked Heather for a late June delivery date. We are hoping the schedule holds, and we learn enough about the Oliver to camp our way back to Charlotte through the 4th of July weekend. We have already booked our first RV spot at Cloudland Canyon State Park in GA.


I have been following this forum for a bit over a year and like many others, also want to thank everyone for the wealth of information (and sometimes entertainment :). This forum has certainly been a benefit to me in making a decision on a camper and if I can remember half of what I have read, I imagine it will help keep us safe, functioning and enjoying our time out of the city. I am sure we will have questions, so thank you in advance. I enjoy a different perspective, or a straight out correction.


Take care,



  • Thanks 2

Kim & Travis -


As a fellow North Carolinian let me add a welcome and congratulations.  Certainly your Oliver is going to be WAY more comfortable than virtually any tent.  If you haven't been over to the factory yet any nice long weekend between now and June would make a great little trip and maybe even give you a chance to see your Oliver on the production line.  Certainly June will be here before you know it - I lie - this will probably be a long wait.  But, you can fill the time with making plans for where you will take it and for how you will outfit it.  I'm sure that we are all excited for you!

Travis and Kim, welcome and congrats on your Ollie order. I agree with Bill that a factory tour is worth the time. As questions come up don’t hesitate to ask, lots of smart people here. Mike

Wishing you many miles of smiles with your new ollie.


Our daughter is in Charlotte tonight for a company meeting.  She loves Charlotte.  We've never spent time there... guess we should...


If you could attend the spring rally, or visit with another ollie owner in a more relaxed situation,  it may help with the learning curve. It's a bit more elaborate than the tent, as you know...


We've loved our ollie for almost 11 years. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we do ours...
