Hi Everyone!

This is a wonderful forum and appreciate all the great information, pictures, help, etc.  This will be our first (and hopefully last) purchase based on what we’ ve read and watched on videos.  We’ve been researching for about a year, attending RV/Travel Trailer events, and visiting dealerships but have not found anything yet.  With such a huge investment, we want to ensure our home away from home is of excellent quality, durable, last long, and doesn’t require constant repairs (especially if it’s brand new).

We’ve also researched the Escape and the Bigfoot.  However, we keep getting pulled back to the Ollie.  We did submit a request to see an Ollie in person and hoping to do that soon.  

We are super excited about this next chapter of traveling and adventures!

Welcome!  When we were trying to decide what RV to buy we also looked for a year before we saw the Olivers. It was the first thing we agreed on so that was a good sign. 🙂. Seeing one in person is great for feeling how the space would work for you. We also thought the trip to TN (from NH) to do the factory tour was well worth it. In fact it was the deciding factor. Good luck! Lots of good info on here from people. Paula

Welcome and glad that you "found" Oliver.  

Besides visiting an Oliver in your local area (a great first step 'cause seeing is believing), if you live anywhere close to the Oliver factory, be sure to take the tour.  Also, for both the tour and your visit - take your camera.  It will help you remember what you saw and help with questions that you may have in the future.

Good luck and let us know if there is any question we can help you answer.

Welcome!  Glad you’re considering and Oliver along the Escape and Bigfoot.  Each are a bit different.  Tennessee isn’t too far from Maryland, a trip to the factory is educational as far as build quality, features and factory support.  Let us know what questions you have.  Mike

It's a really big decision. 

We literally looked at every smaller trailer in the market, back in 2007.

Still enjoying our 2008. Typing this as we're camped. About 24 weeks so far, this year. 

Look at width, and tracking, hull and frame, and look again. You'll figure it out.
