BoondockingAirstream Posted November 15, 2021 Share Posted November 15, 2021 An Oliver I or Oliver II can go anywhere your Tow Vehicle has clearance. The Oliver II with the double axle is the most Boondocking Positive 'Luxury' Trailer on the road. Or Off the road. The Rocky Mountains States have thousands of FREE Boondocking. Minimal Cost at National Forest Campsites with a table and an 'out house'. Sometimes water from a pump, or a river nearby. Although I would use the Pump Water for washing and pet water... as it can contain sand or grit. It is the best tasting water available... and no chlorine. If you have 16 inch E Rated Tires... 65psi to 70psi is advised. I use this range on our 27 foot Airstream. Also the 25 foot, which is very close to the Oliver II. Many 'dry camps' are used by big game hunters in the Fall... and open for YOU the rest of the year. Bow Hunters tend to stay in town and drive out in the morning to hunt. They also use ATV's for the short time to hunt. The first time you explore the NFS or Bureau of Land managed public land... it is often vacant or other campers. As you get closer to a large town or city... more weekend campers. So find your spot on a Monday to Thursday. 🙂 Great camping spots are found by those who think strategic options on improved gravel and dirty roads. When you are traveling... and need a place to spend an evening... truck stop service stations are great for the evening. Even those Service Stations with lots of parking, if you are considerate and keep away from incoming customers and away from trash pickup, air pressure and dump stations. We have never had an issue. Those who 'camp out' at a Walmart or a Costco, set up a grill in the parking lot, some lounge chairs, a rug... will most likely look like you are planning on staying. This is why many larger parking lots have to ask YOU and those living for free on their property as asked to leave. They cannot ask someone to leave living there, but let you stay as you are temporary. Casino Parking Lots with trucks... is also a good temporary Boondocking site. Often many players come, stay in the Parking Lot and go into the Casino. Smaller Casinos in Nevada towns... welcome overnight campers and visitors. Get a Casino Card also... Don't know where to camp in the National Forest? No worry... see an interesting area... and an exit heading that way... explore. Go as far as you feel comfortable. You will get more comfortable over time. We find one spot... set up camp, and then detach the tow vehicle and go further into the mountains or hills. Make it an adventure. The first week you will be learning. The second week... you will be giving others... ADVICE!!! Just learn the clearance of rear bumper DRAG. Watch for brush alongside the road. Low hanging branches. Rocks in the road...toss them to the side. Bring branch long handled cutters. You will gain confidence, add a shovel... some tools... a GPS and take a camera. To recall all the wonderful places you... discovered! If our Airstream can do it... any Oliver can. We are planning on finding an Oliver II to explore the Rocky Mountains. They are hard to find, but we are patient. Enjoy your Oliver. You just have not pushed YOUR Limits... your Oliver can handle anything YOU can with your tow vehicle. We look forward to discovering an Oliver far into the back country. We will have stories to share and good company is always appreciated. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
