Hello from Plymouth Michigan


Recommended Posts

I would like to learn more about Oliver Travel Trailers.  I am currently a boater.  I have a 1994 33ft Carver Mariner that I have owned since 1999.  I have been into boating most of my life including 4 years on a WWII diesel electric submarine.  I also have a 15ft HiLo, which is stored in my garage and have only used for fishing and hunting.  I pull it with a 2010 Ram 1500 with a 5.7 hemi.  I love to camp but my wife hates smoltering camp fires.  When they roaring shes ok with that.  At my age, I can see my that my boating days are numbered. If I can convince the boss, I would like to do some traveling with a trailer.  The Oliver looks like a quality unit with low maintenance. So my plan is to lurk here and see what I can learn.

Welcome, many happy Ollie owners are current or former boaters. I do not know of any submariners. Thanks for your service. I have been reading all the (mostly) excellent Douglas Reeman books; subs and uboats play major roles in all of them. I hope I have a very faint idea of what you went through then.

Smoke is going to be a long term problem, especially out west. You can take steps to deal with it, but it will not be going away in our lifetimes.

Welcome!  Think of the Oliver as a fiberglass boat on wheels.  Ask questions as you have them and you’ll get some good answers.  Mike
