We picked up our Ollie 2 Hull #1139 (We thought we were getting Hull#1132 lol) on June 9, 2022, 1 pm appointment time.   After our orientation and education walk around and through by Ryan (very knowledgeable) and our last Financial Paid in full payment to Shelli (A Sweetheart)......We spent the night loading what Camping supplies we brought with us and operating everything we could to make sure everything was working before departing the next day.  We met at least three other Oliver owners during this time and found that Nice people do own Oliver's.  Some even shared helpful advise of the things they had experience about their unit.  Awesome folks!  We found a couple of items that needed attention.  A little caulk needed below and above the bathroom entrance door (btw these these two seams really need a cover piece to make them more attractive).  The front door needed adjustment and the Air Flow fan in the center of the Ollie would not operate properly and had to have a new board installed the next day (June 10).  After leaving the factory, we drove to Cullman, Alabama about 140 South of Hohenwald, Tn and spent 11 day's at the Palomino RV Resort ($54 a night) A very nice place to stay!  There we utilized the Camper while visiting relatives in the area.  We had two other issues pop up with the unit.  The battery straps buckle that are in the battery compartment (AGM batteries) had broken.  Jason in Service sent out new ones to my home and they have been replaced.  The touch led lights over the sink & cooktop both went on the blink.  Jason in Service authorized new lights be sent to my home.  They are Riveted in and I replaced them with the help of an experienced friend who had done some Riveting in the past.  (Note: a small instruction should be wrote up on exactly what to expect if you need to replace these lights in the future).  Example: The original connection on the wiring, once the lights are removed, will not pull out of the hole to replace them!  You have to splice the new wires to the old wires, so now you have two connection splices.  The room to reinsert the wires is very small but we got them back in by removing some of the foam.  The new lights are now functioning as intended!  The Ollie will be parked in the RV garage (affectionally nicked named Ollie Avenue, for the time being).  We are searching for a name to give the Ollie but no hurry.  We are in the process of awaiting a mattress topper from MATTRESS INSIDER and 4 sets of fitted sheets.  My new Dodge Ram Limited 1500 5.7 liter truck is due for some warranty electrical work and once that is completed and the sheets arrive, we will be off and running to enjoy our new Camper.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!?

Congrats on your delivery!

Looks like white is your favorite color.

Got to like the RAM truck and the Ram boxes for storage. I have them on my Ram Rebel and love them.

Congratulations! Beautiful rig, and wow, your garage is bound to spark some serious cases of garage envy. 

Is that frp/dairy board on the garage walls ?

I believe it’s called Hardee board or cement board! The garage was built for my first RV a gas 1991  HR imperial 33 foot, then expanded for my 38 foot 1994 HR Navigator before getting a 40 footbluebird LX 2001……..I completely remodeled the whole garage in 2017 when we downsized our living to what is now our RV port home.  Sold the bluebird in 2020 and missed the Rv life so after a search purchased the Ollie.  I think my Ollie feels at home here 😉 lol

Hey John & Wendy! 
 
Had a great trip home! Thanks! You head south to Florida, we can make that music happen 🎶 we got a Margaritaville RV resort in Auburndale that is pricey but a GREAT place to stay and it’s only 4 miles from our home😊 

safe travels!
