Larger Dinette is Available!


Recommended Posts

Many of us here in Ollie World are familiar with the beautiful woodwork of fellow Oliver owner Foy Sperring.  Not long ago he introduced an extended dinette that adds 5” to the length, it’s been a very popular model.  Our 2021 Oliver Elite II was ordered without the fiber granite (not an option on 2022 models), so we could invest that money into Foy’s woodwork.  Andrew K suggested to me the dinette could be improved by adding 2” width on each side.   We took a chance and asked Foy to make us a complete set of tops and cutting board in walnut.   We also ordered the drawer organizers.  We are thrilled with the outcome!  The extra 5” length,  4” overall dinette width, is a good size,  and looks great too.  It’s amazing how much extra space is now available to us for dinner, and we don’t have to scoot way forward on the seat cushion to eat.   The walnut looks terrific,  but I think mahogany or other woods are beautiful too.   This dinette top will not work as a bed, but we still have the fiberglass top if we take the grandchildren camping.  We are very grateful we have a  master craftsman like Foy on our team,  I strongly recommend his products.

Thank you Mike and Jill for the kind word regarding my craft.  This was a great project, black walnut is just so beautiful and I really love the way it turned out.  Here are two pictures of the standard size dinette on top of your Mega-dinette for comparison.

That's beautiful! 

Really warms up the interior. 

Got is such a fine craftsman.  We are, indeed, fortunate to have him on our team.

Question: does the small dinette top attach to the sidewall of the Oliver the same way?

The Mega-Dinette attaches to the wall and the pedestal using the same fittings, tightened down with the 2 thumbscrews.  The table and all other tops are a fast, easy DYI install, and Foy provides clear written instructions.

Foy...the black walnut is a beautiful addition to the Oliver.  Your work is amazing.  I am slated to take delivery of the last 2021 Elite 2 produced (on or around 11/14/21).  I will be reaching out to you to take discuss doing exactly what Mike did here in his Elite 2.

The results are just beautiful and really class up and add warmth to the trailer. If someone buys a new trailer can the fiber countertops be ripped out easily or are they bonded down?  What a shame they are not allowing custom options any more.
