Mirrored cabinet doors at night, and Heyburn State Park ID


Recommended Posts

I am not sure when they stopped offering the mirrored doors. I quite like them because they make the inside seem way bigger than it actually is. Does anyone know at what Hull number this option was ended?

I spent three nights at Heyburn State Park, ID, Hawley’s Landing CG, $92 with power and water, with a senior midweek discount taken away and a $10 res fee added. It is about 30 miles south of Coeur d’Alene, next to the wonderful Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes bike trail.

I am glad I had power because the trees are packed in there, I rarely even saw a piece of sun.

One night I woke up at 2:00 am and could not get back to sleep, so I started playing around with my iPhone 13 Mini, which has amazing night mode. Here are a bunch of shots with various interior lighting on or off. No flash, unedited. The first one is no cabin lights, just various LEDS from the appliances and my box heater (under the table) and HEPA air cleaner (in the bathroom).

No lights:

Cabinet lights only:

The green LED is the cell booster:

All lights on - Ouch!:

Now all you need is a Blue Man Group outfit!

All of this at 2am?  Did you hit that bike trail too hard or not hard enough?

Ok, Airstream may be the coolest exterior, but Oliver has the coolest interior, by far, as proven by your pix!

The first part is debatable, unless you like the look of an aircraft fuselage with oxidized aluminum, hail dents and popped rivets.... I think a clean and polished Ollie is simply stunning outside. And in my experience most casual passerby seem to think so too. Anyway, this is an Ollie forum, you are not supposed to say nice things about other brands 😉

I completely agree John. It's hard to beat an Oliver's external appearance. I appreciate the smooth and reflective look of an Oliver, at least in the photographs. I haven't even seen one in person yet! 😂

I really liked the look from the pictures, but when I saw one in person I was simply stunned, absolutely blown away. You will be too.

How the heck are you getting it back to Twin Falls in winter? In your shoes I would have it shrink wrapped and shipped on a flatbed. Thanks.

What is the lights over the bathroom door, in the all light on picture?

Is that something you added yourself or is a reflection?

I am considering getting the ceramic coating the day after our delivery. CGI have us penciled in right now. The price is hard to except. however, most people that have paid for the coating seem satisfied with their decision.

I have a similar concern given our delivery date of November 10.  We go by Twin Falls on the return trip to Garden Valley, ID.

FWIW, our plan is to take a southern route to Arizona.  We will then wait for a weather window, if necessary, to make a run up through Utah on I-15 and southern Idaho on I-84. 

We figure there are worse things than camping in southern Arizona in November!

Same for us! We will probable shoot southwest across Texas and then slow down, maybe around Carlsbad Cavern.

Those lights are actually air vents, I have a set inside also, into the closet. It eliminates the suction effect when you have the bath fan on and close the door. They are Perko chrome plated brass cabinet vents. I also used them to ventilate the battery box to the inside of the cabin. FYI these were used by Oliver on the battery door on earlier hulls, but I think they may have been discontinued….

@John E Davies Thise are cool pics. I love the outline look on the black and agree I wish they had the mirrors still. 

You were not paying $92 a night right. That was for all 3 days? We like Heyburn state park. It is close to us. The inner loop sites can be a bit tight but pretty areas with great hiking and bike trails.

$92 for three nights midweek. I could not get any other discounts than “over 62”. And that figure includes the $10 online fee.  I actually have very bad feelings about Hawley’s Landing. A front came through the first night and the wind dumped Douglas Fir needles and cone fragments all over my truck and trailer. I had just finished Rejexing both. Now there are sap spots everywhere. I will see if they come off easily….

And the little stingray things are the seed covers, they are really sharp and I did not want to ride my bike across ten million of them.

Plus it was way way too dark, they need to remove half the trees and cut back the brush by the shore. Not very impressed!

Did you mean $32?  $92 seems steep for a SP, esp in Idaho.

I just caught up...I see, 3 nights.  The other replies were not there when I first read the post. Makes sense now.
