Could some of you share your thoughts on the comfort and size of the Oliver Elite II for two adults on cross country trips, or long stays in a single campground?  I am sold on the quality, but am still having thoughts on the size,

We routinely go out for 4 to 6 week trips.  We don’t feel cramped.  The only time we wish we had more space is during inclement weather.  We try to spend most of our time outside.  A Clam or other screen room is a good addition so you can spread out a little.  We’ve spent several days inside during extremely cold weather or very wet weather and did fine.

This is a very difficult question to answer.  Your personal space requirements may be different than others. I went from a larger Rv and welcomed  the downsizing of the Oliver.  You need a place to sleep eat and a place  to clean up wash shower.  Some that have larger Rvs  may not like the smaller space. Smaller Rvers and people that used tents love and welcome the size of the Oliver,  best bet take the tour of the Oliver plant and visit one in person to get your own feel of it.  I think you’ll like it. Good luck

We have had fifth wheels, Scamps, tents, and a Class A motorhome before the Oliver. We have been to more places, and been more comfortable in the Oliver than any of the others. (give you a good deal on the Itasca). For some reason it is just more fun.

Jo, from some of your other comments on other threads, I'm guessing you boaters.

We are , too. And, weve camped in tents, vans, and a variety of motorhomes.

The Oliver ( and we have the little one), is both big and small enough for everything we want to do on two week to three month trips. Cozy and warm on crummy weather days, it lives really big on the outside. Inside, we have everything we need, in a compact floorplan.  

It's been a great 12 years traveling with our Ollie in the US and Canada.. Looking forward to the next 12.

I would say, if you plan to camp in buggy areas for extended periods, a good quick deploy screen room would be nice.
