Oliver in the News

So, here we go with "MSRP," "sale price," etc. One of the things I liked about our purchase experience was the fixed/no haggle price. I'd be interested to know which of those two prices matched the factory price for that trailer, if either. They can't have the factory charging less than the dealers and undercutting them. OTOH, I can't see the dealer charging less than the factory and still making an acceptable profit margin.

Very good point.  It would be interesting to see the pricing structure.  Obviously a person would expect to pay less at Hohenwald.  A couple thousand more to avoid a 4-5000 mile round trip would be worth paying a bit more.  For us in Oregon, that makes sense.  I can't see paying more to a dealer in Alabama or Georgia though.

I've been told that it is Oliver's intent that it will not matter as to the location that you chose to purchase your new Oliver or even to have that new Oliver delivered.  In each case the price will be the same. Only time can tell how successful they will be and/or how close they will be able to get in fulfilling that intent.

Truth is, we humans generally find extreme discomfort in change. Big or small, change is a challenge. 

Let's give the new plan time to grow, and mature.

Oliver is no longer the fledgling company we took a big fly on in early 2008. The family management is smart, careful,  and I'm sure they've thought this process through,  very carefully. 

I'm rooting for them, and all of us future and current owners who can benefit.

This almost sounds like a consignment rather than a dealer purchase.  I wonder if they will take trade ins now.

The operative word in the above is "they".

If you mean Oliver then the current answer is - NO.  There is no change to Oliver's long standing policy regarding used Olivers.

If you mean Oliver dealers" then I believe that the answer is - YES.  These are independent dealers and if they currently deal in used RV's the I'd suspect that they will deal in used Olivers.  And, if this is the case, that just might be another "benefit" to this new program for all of the current owners.  This is particularly so for those that find themselves in a situation where they might have to get rid of their Oliver in a hurry and/or those that really have no knowledge of an Oliver but for a number of various reasons find themselves in charge of selling or disposing of the Oliver from an Estate or medical issues or ....

Also a benefit for a potential buyer who has a a trade in on an Oliver….to save tax on the value of that trade in!

Quality trade ins would be a huge benefit. Oliver trailers are made to last a long time and could provide an amazingly healthy second hand market. 
 

Does anyone have the updated (after Jan 1st) price sheet?

 Yes.  That tax on my Oliver was painful.

No sales tax in Oregon, but we had to pay a use tax of about $600-$700.

We attended the Charlotte RV show today and specifically asked the owner of Bumgarner RV who is now selling and servicing Olivers if they would accept a trade in on a new Oliver? Shannon Bumgarner the owner said yes that he would accept a trade in on a new Oliver. 

We have absolutely have no interest in selling or trading our Oliver. I just thought it was interesting to know that our local Oliver dealer will take a trade in.

The Oliver Elite and Oliver Elite II trailers are being shown at the Boston RV Camping show, for the first time, this weekend at the Boston Convention Center.

There was a lot of Ollie interest by people at the show. Scott Oliver was at the event along with the Tim of Tim's RV the Massachusetts sales dealer.

Now they do.  I have a trailer sitting in my side yard that I haven't been able to get rid of.  If I had only waited a little longer.  

Oh well.  Spilled milk gets cleaned up by the cat.
