Steve & Mary Allyn in San Antonio here, introducing ourselves to the group.

Delivery of our LE II is just a few weeks away. It's supposed to hatch November 29. We had been considering an Ollie for a couple of years when last January we saw one by chance up close during a rest stop on a road trip. Its build quality and design aesthetic sells itself. We placed our order in February.

As owners of a classic GMC motorhome we're not new to RV'ing, but this our first travel trailer. The LE II is a bit smaller inside than our GMC, but we're already familiar with a wet bath and small walk around space.  

We've enjoyed following this forum as our egg has been incubating. Thank you to the many contributors of the interesting and useful posts on this forum.  The collective wisdom is awesome. We hope we'll soon be adding our experiences and ideas to benefit the community.

Welcome! And, congratulations!

Did you keep the GMC? I'd love to see a photo, side by side.

The vintage gmc is one of my favorite motorhomes. Obviously,  not so easy to maintain,  these days. Your Ollie will be so much simpler.

Looking forward to your photos, and best wishes.

We're keeping the GMC.  It's a 1975 Glenbrook that was refurbished in the '90's by Clasco.  The exterior paint and interior cabinets are in dire need of a refresh.  The Onan 6000 is also a bit of a temperamental beast.  The mechanicals are solid, with low miles on the engine and transmission, both rebuilt less than 10 years ago. It will be a long time before it's where we want it be.  That's where the Ollie comes in.  Our camping plans are no longer going to be determined by the the state of the GMC.
