Oliver ellite in Columbus Montana today


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I saw my first Ellite 2 in Columbus Montana today. It was beautiful. I don't want to come off as some kind of a stalker but my wife and I  have been wanting to look at an Oliver for awhile. I did not get a hull number as we passed on main street but if you get this please message back. If you are still in the area and willing to show it we would absolutely be indebted to you. Thanks bunches! Harley.

Not a stalker..

Leave a,sticky note on the door. Most of us will show our trailers, even though travel conditions are not showroom.

We've stayed hours beyond planned departure at a campsite, showing ours. 🙃

Thanks for the info. Not sure what campground they are staying at though. I was traveling for work when we passed. Thought I would give the forum a try!

Contact Oliver Sales and they will contact a owner in your area so you can set up a showing.

Off topic (sorry), but how are the smoke conditions in W Montana right now?  We are planning a trip up through E Washington, then south through Montana and Idaho later this summer.

The air quality is really variable, it is great here at this time (31) but was 175 yesterday for a few hours. The Windy app will show the next four days of smoke if you select the Air Quality layer. I use the PM2.5 setting since that is smoke particles. Here is right now:

And here is four days from now:

I can’t recommend camping in Idaho or Montana unless you have no respiratory sensitivities and also have a HEPA filter to run inside the Ollie. There is about half a million acres burning in WA state alone. It is not a good time to be headed downwind from that. BTW the GAIA nav app has a current wildfire layer in the Pro version, it is quite useful but I have found that it is not very current, you should always refer to a wildfire website map. I find this whole issue to be very distressing. I have smoke allergies and it really makes me miserable.

Thanks . . . . I hope the wildfire situation doesn't get worse, but it is so early in the season, I expect it will be a long time before fires subside.  It saddens me to see the devastation to our beautiful resources.  

We use the GAIA wildfire layer as well as inciweb.  I will check out Windy.com

Fortunately, neither of us has smoke sensitivities, although any excessive smoke isn't good for the lungs.  We hope to do a bit of traveling in Sept/October;  we'll just have to monitor and pick the best time and place.  With so many variables - mosquitos (which I am allergic to), overflowing campgrounds, fires, and weather, just to name a few, enjoying RV life has become more and more of a challenge.  I want the "old days" back.

That would be awsome Jim. I sent you a pm. Hopefully I did it correctly. Thanks so much for everyone's help and info. I love how Ollie owners come to the aid of others. Hopefully I can be of help in the future as well! Harley.
