Howdy from Texas

Hello, Scott and Conni checking in. We are excited to join the Oliver Club! Our delivery date for our Elite 2 is soon. Now that I finally retired (Air Force), we wanted a trailer more boondocking ready with twin beds. We have owned Airstream, Casita and Escape. Anyways, hope to see y'all down the road!

Welcome from a fellow ex Airstream owner. We absolutely love our LEII twin bed! Not knocking Airstream, it’s still a good trailer, but Oliver‘s quality is far superior!

Welcome to the Family!

Exciting times .  Hopefully you have already started getting VERY familiar with the Oliver University.  This not only will make your delivery go much smoother but it should help you way on down the road too.  In addition - perhaps when you get bored with the University, you could simply start scanning through the Forum.  Threads here run the gambit of things that cover both new and old(er) Ollies, places to see and do, problem solving, mods, etc..

Have fun!  Ask questions.  We're more than happy to help a fellow member of the Family.

Bill

p.s.  thanks for helping us all out with your Service!  There are a bunch of us ex military types here and we know the "drill".😉

Scott and Conni, welcome from fellow military retirees!  We’re getting quite a few Texas owners.  Let us know if we can help in anyway.  Mike

Welcome to the family.

Maybe we'll see you in Texas in April during the Eclipse.

We'll be at Lady Bird Johnson RV Park in Fredericksburg.

Check out our BLOG below our signature for some sites we've traveled in our Oliver and news on the Eclipse.

Welcome!

You've already owned several brands, and two molded fiberglass,  so I'll be very interested in your comparisons after pickup.

Happy motoring, from #12.

Welcome, fellow Texans.  Jason and Tina here.  We just picked ours up in December, Shaked it down, wrung it out, and finally cleaned it up for the first time.

Welcome to the Oliver Family, Scott and Connie!  

We're "part-time" Texans, our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson live near Dallas and we're there a lot (does that count?).  We enjoy hauling our OTT there from NM for extended periods.

Looking forward to seeing pix of your future adventures in your new rig!

Cheers,

A & D

Was Texans for near 10 years (2006-14) if that counts! Best state in the union for business, earn a good living, putting your children through school, high school and college sports, cost of living and many more reasons! Ran the TX to AZ roundtrip dozens of times!

Our son's middle school tennis coach taught us a term we still use today. She'd say, "All y'alls" gather round, and we couldn't wait to hear what's next! Where but in Texas do middle schools have tennis teams? Yes, football of course.

Our son played 1-2 tennis tournaments monthly in just about every city in Texas, from Abilene to Houston, Wichita Falls to Laredo and everywhere in between! He later played for a division 3 Texas university. We just loved traveling everywhere in Texas, our fondest memories.

Welcome to the club and enjoy your new Oliver!

Welcome Scott and Conni,   

From a USAF Gulf War Vet, a big thank you for your service in the best and most lethal Air Force in the world. 🇺🇸

I really enjoyed my time served in USAF. Your delivery day will be here before you know it.

Congrats on your new Oliver!

Welcome Scott and Connie!

Wen and I are AF retirees as well and have been fulltiming 4 years now (2 in a Casita).  Our Ollie (twin beds) seems like a mansion with the extra 6 feet inside vs the Casita.  We picked ours up 2 years and 1week ago and have not looked back.  This Oliver community is quite amazing and we are very thankful to be part of it.  We'll be at the "Q" in a couple of days to reunite with good friends.  I know you will be pleased with your new Oliver.  No trailer, as you well know, comes problem free but I can tell you that this Oliver community is quite amazing and experienced with handling just about anything.  Congrats on your retirement :)

Wen and John
