Welcome Mary & Tom - 

Double shell, no rat fur on the walls, insulated with double pane windows, no press board cabinet doors, no rust on the frame and a plie of options.

Since you've had a Casita then basically all you have to do is go see an Oliver to note the difference.

Of course, the Oliver is somewhat more expensive too, but, once you see one I think you will realize why it costs what it does.

Good luck  and don't be afraid to ask those questions.

The only poor question is the question not asked. Don't wonder... ask.

Then, sort through the variety of answers. There are a lot of great people here, and as many answers and opinions.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome from fellow Texans! We drove over to Rice and looked at the Casitas but the carpet on the walls was a hard no for me. Discovered Oliver online while looking to downsize from a 42' 5th to something smaller to travel after retirement. We took a trip to Tennessee for a factory tour and we were sold! There are a good many Olivers in Texas now and I'm sure someone close would be happy to show off their trailer. We have a 2021 LE2 that we picked up in February with the twin bed floor plan. We are just south of DFW area if you are anywhere close to us otherwise Oliver can put you in touch with someone.

Lots of helpful folks here on the forum who are more than happy to answer questions and offer their opinions. We learned a lot while waiting on ours to be built.
