Hello all! We recently picked up a "new to us" 2010 Elite II (hull #45) and couldn't be happier to finally be part of the Oliver family. Outside of needing a thorough detailing, she seems to be in excellent shape for the year, and came with  a mountain of service records. It's been crazy the amount of Facebook private messages we've received on our Ollie.. Everything from "it's a scam, they didn't make an Elite II in 2010" to "must be a prototype", and that it being Hull #45 it "must be the last one made before production shut down in 2009 because only 45 total were made up to that point".. whatever the story is, we love it and look forward to making it our own over the next few months by adding solar, new flooring, LED lights, etc.

Looking  forward to being part of this forum, to educate ourselves, and to hopefully able to contribute where we can.

Chris and Chris

Chris’s, welcome!  Looks like you got a collectors item with Hull 45.  Here we are in 2021 and side by side folks would be challenged to tell any difference between yours and a new trailer rolling out of the factory.  It would be interesting to know if after you detail it, or get it detailed if the shine comes back!  Mike

Thank you! I had a feeling we had something of an oddball, and you're right, not much has changed! There are some slight differences that I can see, though.. Hot water tank location (at the expense of drawer space inside) round reverse lights, switch panel, and probably a few more differences that a trained eye could see.. I added a link of some pics to my post.

Interesting hot water tank location.  Does that give a pass through storage in the back?

Yes, full pass through in the back.

Way cool!

Welcome even if you are "OLD".

Perhaps a private message (PM) to ScubaRX might result in a bit of a history lesson on your unit.
