Hello from Charlotte NC


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I decided to go the “new” route.

I just finished taking to OTT and put down my deposit for an Elite II, delivery in December 2021. 

I have until September to decide about options and finishes....

Congratulations! 

Lots of time to study posts, and the University videos.

Have you owned a camper before? That really helps to choose options, as you "know" your desired camping style. If not, we can help, in answering questions. 

And, welcome!

I have been lurking in the forums since 2018. Also, I am an avid sailor and owned several sailboat over the years. I am familiar with battery banks, chargers, inverters, etc.

I have camped before but never in a camper.

Fred - 

In that case, you are going to love your land vessel.

Welcome!  But, now comes the hard part of deciding which of those options you really need and/or want.

As I said on the phone congradulations. Since you looked at a few used Oliver's it should make your choice of options easier.

Sailors definitely  "get" the whole idea of many systems. 

Especially water 💧,  and conservation. 

Backing a trailer into a spot  is definitely easier than docking and  tying up in a slip in high crosswinds .

You'll be fine.  Read (and watch) all the land-based stuff.

Many of the other systems are already familiar. 

Ps, dumping is much easier than pumpout. Imo

Congrats Fred!  We are just a couple of months ahead of you - having opted for the "old" (2020) vs. "new" (2021) option.  We too are shifting from spinning sea to land yarns and look forward to sharing with you in the future!  (Assuming we ever thaw out  LOL!)
