Delivery Day Pickup Date


SAR

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a delivery date in April and wanted to know (based on your date), was there a delay for getting your trailer on that date? I'm wanting to make lodging 'reservations' before and after pickup. I am planning on spending the night @ Oliver after pickup to check systems out. thank you

It is extremely rare for Oliver to change a delivery date once it is set.  Things like weather (particularly near the delivery date) can have an effect but given that your delivery is in April that factor should be of little concern.

I'd go ahead and make the reservations.  Having said that - I'd spend at least two nights in the camping area of Oliver.  The first night you WILL be tired and it would be better to simply relax, have a nice dinner, settle in (i.e. more you stuff into the Ollie, make your beds, get the fridge at least partially stocked, look over (maybe) some of the material you will be given and then get a good night's sleep.  The next day you can go through all of your systems and check all things to make sure they are as they should be and you will be right there are the Service area in the case you need help.  All of this is done without the "worry" of also having to move and re-set up camp.  Here on the Forum it has been said many times by many owners - try to stay in the area for a few days so that if you find something you don't think is working right you are only a short distance from Service.

Good luck and it will not be long now!

I agree with the above comments.  Something very unusual would need to happen to interfere with your delivery date.  I also agree that if you have time you should spend more than one night in the area.  April is just around the corner!  Mike

If there's space at Camp Oliver, spend two nights. Run absolutely every system the next day and night.

If you have a bit of time, stay a few nights more at one or two of the beautiful Tennessee state parks in the area. A little more shakedown/gain familiarity  time is great, and still close to Oliver if you need any advice or assistance.

We ordered on January 28, 2022 and were given November 7, 2022 as our delivery date.  No delay at all.  That year they had booked all the production slots by the end of January.  They are good at keeping to the scheduled delivery date.  Try to pick up on a Monday or Tuesday, spend two nights at OTT campground, then another two or three nights nearby.  David Crockett State Park is nearby.  Best wishes on a smooth delivery.

Hello, fellow Texan.  Longview, here.  Delivery for me was spot on.  Mine was on Tuesday which is a really good day to do the shakedown since Oliver will be open until Friday.  I had no problems with mine but that might not be typical.  Allowing two days, one at camp Oliver and another at a local campground will give you the chance to set up, break down, pull it (seating the brakes), set up and break down again.

As others said. We ordered on 9/21 and our delivery date was to be 6/29/22. In December 2021, I got an email from our sales rep asking if we would like to move up our delivery date to 3/10/22. It took all of return email.....yes, yes, yes. Someone must have cancelled.

 

We took delivery in the morning, moved to the campground. We checked all the systems. Hung around to noon the next day. We had a couple of small caulking items they addressed.

Our delivery was on time. We spent the first night boondocking up at Camp Oliver and tested all systems in that mode there. Then we moved to David Crockett State Park and spent the second night hooked up to water and electricity to test those systems. Found an issue with the A/C and service took us in first thing the next morning to address it.

Welcome to the forum!

To answer your original question about where to stay before delivery day? I highly recommend this place B&B -https://www.clarkthecrow.com/  You may want to book early or as soon as you know your actual delivery date. 

It’s a short drive 8-10 min drive to the Oliver Service Center. Mellisa the gal that owns the place is an awesome host and her accommodations are spotless and really nice.


As others have said there are (7) water and electric only camp sites at the Oliver Service Center. There is also a dump station. One of these sites will be yours on delivery day. Your sales person will arrange that for you, just mention it. 
Note - As much as possible try not to take delivery on Friday. If you have any issues with your new Oliver they won’t be addressed until Monday morning. The service center is closed in the weekends.

Congrats on your order, delivery day will be here before you know it!

We picked up on a Monday.  That worked well for us.  I agree to pick up early in the week.
