LongRoad Posted May 3, 2019 Share Posted May 3, 2019 Hello folks, First off, thank you to fellow newbies and experienced Oliver owners who contribute to this forum, we are continuously learning from everyone during our decision making process. We have been pursuing a TT for three yrs now, becoming aware of Oliver since February 2019. We have short listed Oliver given relentless research including this forum, RV shows, Youtube, competitor deficiencies. We have not seen an Oliver yet and are planning to arrange a "see an Ollie" and plant tour when feasible. Our life has been avid full-on four season tent camping/ canoeing/ hiking through mountains globally, to car camping along highways. Primary TT goal is four season capability and boondocking as far off road as can be efficiently handled. OTT of interest: Elite 2 Anticipated TV: 2019 6.2...or wait for 2020 F250 4x4 7.3L gasser with 430's pending on offered specs. Our first questions: manual adjust awning. We are considering 2 awnings. 2019 brochure appears to show a Dometic awning on front page mounted to E2 with 3 colour options listed, i have read about Carefree as well. Assuming both are available in manual: 1. Under typical usage without considering high wind or extra staking, how would D or CF awning mechanical and fabric performance be rated/ described over long term? 2. Is partial awning opening throughout stroke typical... to utilize as window shade or keep rain out of open windows. If so, would trailer anchored legs adjust close to vertical orientation? Any feedback is appreciated, including how to most efficiently utilize this forum Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
