Downsizing and Upgrading at the same time


Recommended Posts

Hi, we have sold the 5th wheel / tow and ordered a new Oliver Elite 2.  We travel for work and of course love camping/ hiking/ backpacking.  After being FT for several years we realized the 5th wheel was to just to big.  CRAZY right!   Thanks for all the info, suggestions, and pics we have seen on the site they have helped tremendously.  Can't wait to see you guys on the road or parked in a field in the middle of nowhere.  BTW our travels can be seen on insta at Gypsysoul2blame.  ✌️

Congrats on your decision to order and Oliver! Your delivery date will be here before you know it! If you get a chance try and get a factory tour scheduled before your delivery date. It’s a pretty amazing tour and really give you insight on how these unique travel trailers are built. Welcome to the Oliver family.

Congrats on your upcoming new Elite II. You will love it. Plus, you already own a adequate tow vehicle.

Congratulations! We sold our 5er and picked up our Oliver a couple of weeks ago. I was a little worried I'd miss the living space but I really don't. And we love the easier towing and additional site choices. Spend the next months researching the Oliver and planning out which items you'll be transferring over and what you'll need to replace. Have fun.

Congratulations!  We had a triple axle 5th wheel next to us in Steamboat Springs last week.  I just can’t imagine what it’s like to tow something that big.  Our little Oliver was dwarfed next to it!  Mike

A few months ago I was seriously considering an Alliance Avenue 5th wheel.  The general quality of traditional-built RVs and the cost of hauling such a huge rig with $5+ gasoline made me rethink that.  I'll settle for smaller and superior quality 🙂  Congratulations on your order.  When is your estimated delivery date?

Pickup date is Nov 11th.  You are correct about the gas cost with current diesel prices it was costing a dollar a mile to tow in the mountains of Colorado. 🤑

We spent 6 months last year tent camping and it was actually nice to figuring out that you can live comfortably bare boned.  We are super excited about being about to park in state parks/national parks that never happened in our 5th wheel.
