My wife and I took delivery of our new Oliver Elite I on Sep 26, 2022 and commenced a 15 day "shakedown" camping trip through TN, SC, NC, VA, back through TN, AL, GA, and home to FL without significant issues. We love it! Still learning the details of the electrical system but it is great fun. We bought this particular model because it fits perfectly under our carport and we love the compact size of the trailer itself. Before my wife and I first got married 52 years ago, I purchased a new VW camper (not a pop top). We camped 55 days, 12, 500 miles around the US on our honeymoon in it. All three of our children grew up camping in that VW until we outgrew it 12 years later. Then we tent camped until they all left home. Now we are back in the camping business, albeit, significantly upgraded.

Msteen,

Congratulations! Love your story about your history of camping in your VW. We camped in one in the early 70s around Southern California with my parents. Great memories. Our camping situation has evolved over the years also. Now we find ourselves in a similar situation. We are happy to be joining the Oliver family!

Great looking Ollie resting comfortably in its very own bedroom.

Nice trip too - glad to hear that there were no major issues.

Welcome to the Family!  Hope to meet you at the annual owner's rally in May.

There have been postings on how to open *.heic files. I just usually skip over them.

Congratulations on the new Ollie. Wow that's a pretty gutsy shakedown trip. Obviously you guys are seasoned and quite confident in your travel abilities. Your Ollie looks like a perfect fit in parking spot. Our waiting game has just begun we'll be there before we know it. Love your story and look forward to meeting down the road.

As per Google:

Can you open a HEIC file on a Chromebook?
 
 
At the top right, click “Upload,” select “Computer,” and find your HEIF/HIEC file in your Downloads folder(or wherever you saved it.) Upload the file and that's it. You should now see your full-resolution HEIC photo in Google Photos.Jun 10, 2022

O MY Heavens!!! topgun2 --- how easy!! The funny thing is that in April my sisters & I went on a 2 week trip to the Utah National Parks. They are all Apple users; I document family activities. We could not easily get their pics into my Google Photos. I see that the Google entry is dated June 2022. I hope this means that this feature was not available earlier this year. 🙂 One sister & I are somewhat computer literate. Regardless --- thank you!!
