Hull Numbers

Recommended Posts

It appears most posters are listing the hull number of their trailer. Here is my idea for discussion...Instead of just having the hull number, add the year the trailer was built, either in front or the back of the hull number as 1456 or 5614. And at what point on the trailer could this number be displayed? Would you want the number on your trailer and would you want the factory do the numbering? Maybe a small number 1-2 inches in height would work. I run this idea past Robert and Alicia and they thought it was a good idea.

I seen this idea used by a big trucking company only they put the year and the number when that truck was put in service, starting with 1 each year. You can look at the number and know a lot about that trailer just by the number.

 

Just a thought,

Hmm, that's an interesting idea. Any idea where you think you'd want the number applied to your trailer?

We're hull number 12. Our boat is number 12 too. I think it was just meant to be....

I kind of looked at the trailer at the Sales Office last week, but didn't come to any conclusion. As long as it's not those giant numbers some of the Airstreams have,that's over the top. I know it's their member number in some sort of Airstream club. I'm sure the ideas will come in, after all, everybody has an opinion,

That's a great idea Stan. As you can see our license includes our hull number. Maybe the year and hull number on the spare tire cover would be a good spot. I'm not sure if we have the only Oliver with the web name misspelled but I'm pretty sure we are the only one with Jim Oliver autograph on the outside and inside of our Oliver.

Love the license plate, Allenand Pamela! The spare tire cover could make a good spot for a log plate with the number... I could go for that.

Commanche, I totally agree with the oversized Airstream numbers for their caravan club. I sure wouldn't want anything that size anywhere on the trailer.

PS Pamela, you should be #1 Oliver TravelRRailer, right? One and only.

Just reading through some old posts while eating my lunch....

 

I noticed on FB a couple of trailers had their hull numbers above the rear window, sort of like the Airstream folks do. I also like the license plate idea. Has anyone done anything different?

I also like the idea of putting that information on the spare tire cover. I think that there are at least a couple of us picking up our Olivers over the next few months and I also know that the folks at Oliver can produce the Oliver graphics in house. Therefore, if we owners can come to some sort of agreement and then approach the factory I'll bet that they would be willing to help us out for a reasonable price.

The spare tire cover would be a good place. Factory help would result in a more standard look, seems like the cost would not be very much.

I have just sent an email to Anita asking for "factory thoughts" on the matter. She may reply either here or directly to me. If she replies to me, I'll post those thoughts as soon as I get them.

OK, in her usual quick style, Anita has already replied.

 

She said that she was not aware of any owner putting the hull numbers on the spare tire cover. As noted on this forum, there are those owners that have placed the hull numbers on the front or back of the Oliver. Anita said that if an owner wanted they would place the numbers at little or no cost either on the front, back, spare tire cover, side, etc.

 

Therefore, it is up to the owner to ask for this if they want it.

Thanks for checking, now we know! Sounds like an unlisted option....

This thread gives me a chuckle. Over at the Casita forums there is constant chatter over mods. I mean real mods. Oliver makes such a complete trailer that all we have to talk about are hull numbers. I confess that I enjoy a project and performed numerous mods to our Casita. Since buying the Ollie all I have done is add some coat hooks, EZE gutters, and a couple of inside jack switches. Nothing more needed. This is a good thing.

 

We are going to stick #64 on the back of Setting Sail. Just need to get over to the decal shop to do it.

Linda, please post a picture of that after you pick it up. Will be interested in how it looks above the window.
