Oliver of a Different Color…


Recommended Posts

Recently, we stopped by a local RV dealer to get some supplies. As usual, there was a salesman out front and asked if he could show us something. I said, no, we are just here for supplies then I pointed and said you should sell those. He said tractors?  And I said, no, Oliver Travel Trailers.  He said, I have never seen one, heard they were really expensive and they only sell direct.  I replied, I can confirm two of those!

I then commented about the tractor. I have never seen one of these before but heard they were very expensive and hard to find. He agreed.

I actually see Oliver tractors and other heavy farm equipment listed fairly often on Craigslist, maybe there were more sold in the West? Current ads:



There are also all sorts of stuff like mills and lathes, and even a bagel slicer, tho I expect that is not actually the same company 😬:


It would be fun to have  a bunch of Oliver tools. I am still waiting on the long ago promised Oliver Online Store so I can buy some Ollie shirts. Any updates on that? Please post any comments here: …. https://olivertraveltrailers.com/forums/topic/2654-quotollie-gearquot-company-store-products-desired-speak-up/

@Mike and Carol Very nice!  I would definitely like something like that for the barn!

I wish it was mine.  This picture was on my brother’s back deck, he found it at an antique shop somewhere.  I think I’ll convince him to give it up eventually then maybe I’ll attach it to the front of my trailer!  Mike

Oliver tractors make excellent tow vehicles for Oliver Elite II's, if time is no object.

I don't know which model, but the first powered vehicle I learned to drive was an Oliver tractor around the age of ten. Spent a lot of time the next few years helping out in the orange grove, peach orchard and gardens. Until I got my automobile operators permit and interest changed. Now seeing an Oliver tractor brings back some fond memories.

At age ten that would be a blast.  I didn't have the opportunity to drive a tractor until I was in my 20s.  Had the chance to cut and rake a field so it could be baled.  Spent a whole day doing it.  I Loved it.
