GDI Posted June 13, 2020 Share Posted June 13, 2020 I am Gary and I'm in Connecticut... I have never owned a travel trailer and now I am looking for a camper for my wife and son to use. I am intrigued by the Oliver Elite II but have a couple of questions. First, I have been looking on the used market (which is obviously tiny) and I wonder why almost all the units I have seen for sale (or sold) are the twin bed model. That seems odd, I would think that most people would go with the larger bed. Am I missing something? Is there some problem with the bigger bed or something? Second, is used and new price - I spoke with Oliver and found that, 1- I could not get a trailer unless I order now and wait until November or December to get the unit. and 2 - they sell at retail, never a discount beyond a 10% discount on accessories up to a max limit. Which brings me to used units. Obviously it would be great to have the trailer now, but I am seeing 2 or 3 year old models with asking prices appearing to be less that 17-20% discount over a new unit (though NADA value is much much lower than that). I like things that retain value, but that makes buying used to be much less desirable. So my question is it going to be reasonable to try to get a used unit at close to the NADA value, or am I destined have to order and wait 6 months ? I want to be able to use the unit in winter occasionally and my backup choice right now is probably a Lance - which is totally different from an Oliver, obviously, but much more readily available.
