DINGO: 2019 Hull # 448


Recommended Posts

Canis lupus Dingo... an ancient lineage of dog found in Australia.  Blue Heeler, Queensland Heeler, Australian Cattle Dog domesticated and life expectancy to 16 years.  A Dog that can handle High Temperatures, travel Long Distances, Rough Terrain, Protective of their Pack and faithful to their owners and herd children, when necessary.

Our Oliver is now... DINGO, who was over 16 years old before passing among previous Blue Heelers we have traveled with.

If our used Oliver gives us half the pleasure our previous Blue Heelers over the last 30 years... the name DINGO will be well earned.

Our longest living Blue Heeler, rests in peace, within 40 feet of our Oliver this morning.  This makes our pain in losing our friend, with the thought we are still traveling and exploring with fond memories for years to come.  Dingo would  have approved of our choice of an Oliver.

I think that's a wonderful name choice for your trailer, for all the reasons you listed. 

That is a tight fit with the garage door, but looks like it works for you!

Great name and that's my dream garage for a trailer,  pull straight in because there are two doors.

But isn't that a great idea to have two doors?

We have a 2019 Airstream International 27/28 foot and now the Oliver II. The Airstream is inside the RV Garage and the Oliver's home is outside.

I have to back both trailers into the RV Garage.  The Oliver is comfortable outside, on pavers, and sheltered for 40-50% of Summer daylight hours and catches Solar the other50- 60%. 

Boulder City, Nevada is always has nice weather.  Even when it is... not... nice.

It sure is. There are at least a couple other owners here with two garage doors. Maybe look at this thread for ideas

Nice backing skills there, Ray.

Dingo is certainly a cool name. Just keep the baby away...

The Dingo looks nice and comfortable in your RV garage and a snug fit as mentioned in one of your other posts. What is the size of your garage doors.

How on earth do you plan to use both RV's?

Sure is a nice to have both RV's and with probably double the things, like plates, silverwear and cooking pots and pan. Ahh, that is right  you use paper plates and plastic silverwear!

Congrad's on your new to you Oliver.

"How on earth do you plan to use both RV's?"  dewdev

Punishment for Curiosity.  (A strong feeling to know or learn something.)

I also have THREE FLY RODS for fishing.

When Off the Grid Boondocking... there are advantages for a shorter, narrower trailer for some destinations.  The 23 foot Airstream is narrower than all the other Airstream Models... but had 14 inch, five lug wheels in 2006).  Load Range C Goodyear 14 inch Marathons... worst tires for heavy Airstreams.

We are unconventional in our trailer uses, where we set camp, what we need (like 16 inch Michelins on both trailers), clearances (added 3 inches of lift to the Airstream due to length and 16 inch Michelins).  Also,  consideration of the current depreciating money in savings at low interest rates.  Our Oliver and Airstream will always have value, have a purpose, easy to sell and both are excellent trailers.

We want the Propane / Electric operated trailer... ONLY.  The trend is going ALL Electric, which does not work for us.  Both trailers are 2019 Models, so can compare better and many appliances are from the same manufacturers.  The Oliver will take more than two days to become competent of how everything works.  My wife is the INISDE person and I, the OUTSIDE person.  

You are never too old to try something, different.  Some people prefer to do nothing and succeed. We do not mind trying to do something different and hopefully find success in both trailers, different in many ways, but both are easy to Tow having a F350 Diesel 4x4.  We will know by the end of this camping Season.
