Hi we're Keith & Ilene and we go by Buddha & Buffy! It's a long story and we usually tell it after a couple of adult beverages. We just got back from Hohenwald where we toured the factory with Scott Oliver and made final tweaks on our Ollie which goes into production on 19 July.


We're currently living in Fredericksburg, Texas where we settled after two years of full-time RVing in our 40' Winnebago Diesel pusher. We love being more centrally located in Texas vice Nevada where we lived and worked for 20 years before retiring and selling our house and going on the road. The DP was great but we were limited on some of the places we wanted to explore and after a long search we discovered Oliver Travel Trailers.


The LEII is EXACTLY what we wanted in downsizing from the DP. We had a chance to see an Ollie here locally and were impressed right away. After touring the factory and seeing all the innovations and quality we were blown away. We can't wait until September to pick up our Ollie and travel the highways and byways in the new addition to our family.


We looking forward to meeting more Ollie Owners and reading about your adventures and sharing ours.

Buddha & Buffy,


Welcome to the forum and the Ollie family!  Also, welcome to the Texas Hill Country . . . Fredericksburg is a wonderful place to settle.  I'm about 40 miles down the road, in Fair Oaks Ranch.  You'll love the Fall, Winter, and Spring climates here.  Summer, not so much.  But with your LEII, you'll be able to seek whatever climate your hearts desire.


This is a great place to ask questions about the LEII and get ideas on how you wish to personalize your own Ollie.  Now all you have to do is anticipate your trailer's delivery . . . it may feel like forever but it will be here before you know it.

Welcome to the OTT world!  We tell people all the time about the factory tour and they look at you as if you just stepped off some other planet!  And your tour guide was Scott?  I know big shots when I see them.


Have fun reading through all the posts here on the Oliver Owner's Forum.  Try to not spend too much before you get delivery in September.  Let us know if you have any questions too.

Welcome to the Oliver family, we have stayed in your town and had a great German dinner down town after visiting Mammoth NP and President Johnson's home on our way back from Quartzite. We really enjoyed the Hill country and will return again so enjoy, the time will fly and you'll be showing pic's of your destinations. Be safe GaryIMG_3190.thumb.jpg.07df4a82abb46fb352895ca1af5f654b.jpg

Buddha and Buffy, welcome!  Like Pete and Bosker we’re just down the road in Fair Oaks Ranch, too. We were in Fredericksburg last week picking up wine from Becker Vineyards. If you have questions we’d be happy to help. Mike
