#673 picked up Thursday 10/8/2020


Recommended Posts

Picked up our Ollie Thursday and enjoyed a few days at Davy Crockett.  Met another Ollie couple that was just driving through (I don't remember their hull number  --- I think 256)  It was cool and nice seeing and talking with them --- Considering there are only 673 Olivers out in the world.

So, did you pick up in the new sales center? The old one had green grass carpet? 

How was the pickup?

Where will you stay the next few nights?

Inquiring minds want to know. .

Yes, that ceiling sure does look like the new Sales/Service building to me.  I was told that there are plans to do something with the ceiling - and the whole building area for that matter - When I was there in early September the Sales offices were nearing completion but little had been done over on the Service side with the Service Department working from temporary space to the rear of their eventual home towards the front of the building.

That's great that there was another Oliver owner in the campground with you.  When we took delivery of ours we traveled down to St. Augustine to camp for a few days and right across the street was another Oliver.  It really made us feel better and even more a part of the Family.  Then, in 2019 while camped just outside West Yellowstone, there were actually three Olivers!  We organized a pot luck supper and had a good time.  Now, your next objective is to see one out on the road.

We stayed at Davy Crockett 2 nights.  Yes pickup was at new sales Center  but it will be 2 more weeks before they complete remodeling.   Pickup was wonderful and informative but they didn't have electricity in delivery area yet, at least where we were.  Also if you are seeing this we just got our name in forum updated to our Ollie hull name Pilots Lounge. N0673. Hope to meet other Ollie Owners in our adventures.

Congrats and of course, Go Vols!

We visited Hohenwald a few weeks ago and don’t you know last weekend I turned on the tv and found myself rooting for the Vols. (Let’s not talk about that second half.)

Is the new sales center at the same location as the old, just a new building?

Nope - it is not in the same location.

I don't have the address handy but if you turn north at the WalMart stoplight, cross the railroad tracks and proceed to the end of the street - the new sales office and service center will be right in front of you.

No _ it is a remodeled former industrial building. As Topgun posted- its at the end of Industrial Ave. According to Oliver it will house the Sales and delivery team, Service activities, and other Oliver business - non RV. It will be a great site - with plenty of room - no idea if there will be spots for overnighting.

Presently there is a grass area on your right as you approach this "new" building.  There is some discussion at Oliver about making this into a "camping" spot for pre and post Service customers and possibly even for post delivery.  I asked about the non-paved areas around toward the back of the building near the wooded area and was told that they didn't feel that these areas would be secure enough for camping.  Even though I meant to ask about "dump" and potable water facilities at this "new" location - I forgot - sorry.

Thanks . . . . .  found it on the map.  Google maps labels it as "Oliver Travel Trailers - RV Repair Shop".  Is the larger building to the east labeled "Oliver Fiberglass Products" where the trailers are built?

Yes, and the Camper Service area used to be in the back (north side) of that same building.

The "new" Service/Sales building is not actually new.  But, it is in much better shape as compared to the old location.  In the back (north side) of the "new" building Oliver will have some other products being manufactured.  The Sales area is located in the front (south side) left and the camper Service area is in the front (south side) right of the "new" building.  However, until renovations in this building are completed, the new Service area is temporally located about mid-way down the right side (east side) of the new building.

They will contact you the week before delivery and tell you where to come. We were told to come to the old sales office and then we followed someone to the new (unfinished) office but by the time you take delivery it will likely be different.
