Adventures Await...


Recommended Posts

We are empty nesters, Deb and Rod (aka Wink) from Lancaster, PA, who thought our camping days were over when we sold our pop-up camper and eventually invested in a fixer-upper vacation home in NC years ago. And then along came COVID (just as we were approaching retirement and planning to travel), which prompted us to reconsider our options and research campers at the beginning of 2021.

We stumbled on the Oliver TT website fairly quickly, but what really got our attention when comparing camper features was the Walkthrough Tour Video on the Oliver TT website. After a visit to see an Oliver (Hull #247) in our area and a factory tour in Hohenwald, we placed our order for an Elite II in March 2021 and requested a delivery date for April 2022, when we would both be retired.

After over a year of waiting, we pick up "Captain Ollie" (long story) in TWO days! Shout-out to everyone at Oliver who guided us through this process and especially all of the Forum members who contribute such valuable information on a daily basis. While we have learned so much from the experiences of others, we also recognize there will be challenges and much more to learn along the way. We are super excited about the adventures that await and look forward to seeing/meeting you all at the 2022 Rally!

Many, many thanks!

Deb & Wink - 

It looks like you will have good weather for your delivery.  A front is moving through today into tomorrow (Monday into Tuesday) that might cause some brief heavy weather but after it is through the temps will be in the low to mid 70's and plenty of sun.

If you stop at Steve's site during the rally remember that Steve is the old one, Tali is the nice one and Reacher is the large four legged one!😁  Ask for a tour of the interior in that it is one of the few with bed risers and Steve has switches for the switches!

Hope to see you there!


p.s.  a warm welcome to the Family too!

Congratulations!  What a nice retirement gift to yourselves.  We did about the same and have enjoyed our years of Oliver travels.  We’ll be at the rally and hope to meet you there.  Mike
