The specs are remarkably similar, except it is obviously a lot lighter than an LE2, in spite of its steel frame. Single wall hull and a lot less standard equipment….

I think the exterior is quite attractive. I do not like the forward bed, though the north/south Queen option is tempting. I like to look at something other than the inside of the trailer. (I sleep head to front so I can see out the three back windows.) The split bathroom (toilet one side, shower on the other) is very odd but it might work fine. They lost floor space by rotating the bed 90 degrees. And HEY it has mudflaps, is that a Canadian requirement?

So that last graphic is funny to me because the parts of North Carolina that have "Carolina Clay" have red clay.  "Carolina Sandhills " maybe...

It looks like a nice trailer for those without the $$ to get an Oliver.  Interesting how much less it weighs than an EII for about the same size.  Mike

Well, it does come with a few standard features the Ollie does not, like a rear receiver (simple weld-on the rear steel bumper?), but it only comes with a single 12 v AGM, and a whole bunch of options. I specced out their 21C using their Build page, picking a mid range of options similar to my hull. The base US$29k price went up to US$40k and they did not give ANY weight info. AC is not standard, nor is any kind of chassis/ floor insulation.  I find it interesting that they include mudflaps on the base model, and they have an option for a composting toilet with a black tank and plumbing delete, Oliver won’t delete those parts….. I guess that is differences in code between Canada and the USA..

After the 121 degree F record set in BC last week, https://www.cbsnews.com/news/lytton-fire-canada-british-columbia-evacuations/#app      maybe they will make AC standard😳
