Mark, 

Welcome to the forum and now is a great time to read all you can in the Oliver University. Take deep dives on various topics on the fourm and ask also questions. Have you taken the factory tour yet? 
Congrats ordering a new Oliver LEll. What do you plan on towing it with?

Welcome to the forum.  You may have a number of questions,  before, and after delivery .

Ask away. Lots of folks here with answers. 

I'd second @Patriot's suggestion to acquaint yourself with oliver university. Invaluable.

Hi Mark and welcome! We are picking up our LE2 in just over a week. The time between ordering and delivery day seems like a long time, but it goes really fast. We ordered in late October and are so excited to get to "move in to our new home on wheels". If you need anything just let us know.

Patriot,

  Haven’t done the factory tour but I did go to an Oliver owners house to tour his.  I’ll be pulling with the f-150 hybrid. It will be interesting

I sure made it sound like that didn't I. No we will travel seasonally for longer stays and probably do lot of local camping in Indiana and the surrounding states for shorter durations. We are finishing up a total remodel on an 1100 sq ft house to retire to out in the country, with the hopes we will free up a lot more time to travel with less home to tend to. Keep us posted on your progress and your time line, and enjoy the anticipation!

Congrats, Mark!  Welcome to the forum - it is (as other's noted) an absolute wealth of knowledge, experience, and lessons-learned that will make owning your new Ollie a very pleasant and pleasurable chapter in your RV lifestyle! 

FYI:  we just logged our 1st extended Easter weekend "shakedown trip" in our Ollie - only a few small/manageable issues; and we had a blast!

Welcome to the Family, Mark.

Normally I'd strongly suggest that you seriously consider attending the upcoming Oliver Owner's Rally, but, I see that you are located in California.  That's a bit of a distance to travel even though it does provide an opportunity to see a bunch of Olivers and talk to their owners.

In years past, shortly after the Rally pictures and sometimes even brief shots of some of the presentations will show up here on the Forum.  This many spur questions on your part and if it does then be sure to ask while these things are still fresh in the minds of those that were fortunate enough to be there in person.

Hello to everyone and I'm glad to have this forum available 

The quality of posts on this forum, the quality performance history of Oliver's Service Department and the overall quality of Oliver travel trailers all persuaded my wife and me to pay the premium, and drive all the way to Tennessee, to acquire our Elite II last November.  Our only "camping" experience in it so far has been the 2000+ mile "shakedown" drive back to home to Idaho.  It remained stored during the longest winter experienced in central Idaho for many years.  Yet so far, none of the three things mentioned above (the forum, the Service Department and the overall quality) have disappointed.

Today we head out for the Oregon Coast for our first actual trailer camping experience with the Elite II.  We expect it will perform well.  Following in the footsteps of so many who have provided informative posts on this forum, I will report any issues that arise.

Hello Mark, and welcome! As a new owner myself (12 days), I appreciate your interest and enthusiasm. There's a wealth of knowledge and support here on the forum. It really is way above the norm, from my experience.

I'm planning on towing with my F-150 hybrid. I'm seeing posts on other sites stating I might want to consider purchasing a sway bar.  What is the general consensuses?

Hi Mark,

I tow with a 1 ton F350 so I can’t really answer your question. Our truck does not require the Andersen weight distribution hitch or any other modifications or upgrades to tow and LE2. @topgun2 or @mossemi both have F150’s and may be able to chime in.
