Over the years we have had a couple of Oliver owners with these same issues which were discussed on this Forum.  Hopefully they will respond to your question with updates and insights.

Depending on the level of your wife's sensitivity,  you may be best to watch for a clean used unit that has been stored inside.. 

Cushions, fabric, wiring, etc, can outgas. Fiberglass outgasses only until cured. Which is a very short time.

My sister suffers from this sensitivity,  as do I, to a much lesser extent. She bought a nice used rpod, a year or two old, stored inside out of season, and was ok. 

I get headaches, etc., from many chemicals,  including epoxy and some paints. I've been ok in the Oliver. It's different for everyone,  depending on what their sensitivity is.

Good luck. I totally appreciate your situation.
