Older Oliver’s on the road


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

I think most of our "old" Ollies are on the road, though few are active on the forum . Very few sold in 2007. My February,  2008 is still happily camping, as are we. I'm  #12, original owner. Pete is #14, I think, 130,000 miles, also original owner.

Brandi is second owner of #10, occasionally drops in here. Cutest, only red Ollie ever.

#3 resold about a year ago. I have a couple friends with 2008/9 models in the 30s hull numbers. Original owners. We'll be camping with some of them this fall.

Yup. Pretty sure,  we still love our (older) Ollies.  

My husband and I  have tweaked/experimented witha lot of things because of our own ideas. Others are pretty much original, or somewhere in between.

My LE 2 is hull 106.  Still doing great and looks close to new.  Just getting ready to add the Dexter EZ Flex kit.  I have all the parts, but need to work it into the schedule.  Most upgrades have been done by Oliver as far as camera, inverter, battery pack, etc.

We had Hull #026 from 2008 to 2013 and I know it is still being used.

We now own Hull #050, the oldest Elite II on the road. Its build was started in late 2013 and delivered as the first one in early 2014. Between these two trailers, we've traveled to 49 states and covered over 150K miles.

I guess that would qualify you and Tali as "rolling stones".😎

I believe that the Jellybean has had three owners prior to Brandi. After the original owner, it was sold to a lady in Dekalb, IL. It then moved on to a family in Chicago. It returned to the factory for a while to be refurbished prior to Brandi owning it.

I don’t consider my Oliver “old” or even “older” although it is over 5 years old with over 60K miles on it.  Comments while out camping are that it looks new and most are surprised at its age.  Wash and wax after each trip and it will keep its shiny new look.  Mike

We ordered ours in 2016, a 2017 model. Guess we could consider ours to be an "older" model, as we heard #1022 is in the production pipeline. We camped with some 10 Olivers the first week of June. A couple of them were in the 100 range, and one was less than 2 weeks old. Hard to tell them apart. Still shined in the sun.

I only know of one Ollie that’s definitely out of service - don’t know the number, but I’ve seen photos of it after being wrecked. It apparently flipped, the sides were scuffed badly and I think two corners had holes. I think the story was that it slid in the snow and hit a barrier. Honestly, to me it actually looked repairable though I’m no fiberglass expert. Or novice. I did make my own cast once after breaking my wrist though. 👨🏻‍⚕️ 😂   But I bet that Ollie is out there still, just waiting for someone to revive it.

I think Oliver owns a handful of trailers that might be considered out of service.  I heard that they were restoring the original one to go on display. Another Ollie has been converted to go on a flatbed truck, but I think that still counts as an active Ollie.

Unless we lose ours down the side of a mountain or something, I plan on it lasting at least as long as I do.

We've just recently become the third owner of #36, we call her 3-Dozen.  In most details its seems as good as new to us. 
We're thrilled to be in the OTT community now and know we have many great years of adventures ahead.

Your Hull # 036 was one of only ten Elite I's built as 2009 models, although it was delivered to its first owner in August of 2008.

Welcome!  You’ve got a classic trailer!  Mike

We agree, we're proud to own an OTT from those original runs.   I did not know it was actually delivered in 2008 though, neat to know. 

We're starting to settle in, learning how to work with some of the things that make and an original unique.

We appreciate the comments.  Lee and Linda
