Anyone heard of any future plans to make a female version of an Oliver? An Olive maybe?
Also, for us old folks who aren’t spry any longer, in an Elite II w/ twin beds, where do you find you sit comfortably for long periods? For me, with arthritis pain in hip, legs, and back, being used to a nice size lounging recliner, I have to wonder where you find yourself being most relaxed and comfortable in you Ollie.

We have the twin beds and I bought a small ottoman (which has storage in it) to prop my legs on when I’m sitting on one of the sofas. At night we slide it down next to the night stand/drawers to keep it out of the way.
This is the ottoman and I’ve since seen them at places like HomeGoods and Bed Bath & a Blonde:
Dan and Jennifer Brumfield Bellingham, WA Twin beds - Legacy Elite II (Hull #188).
GMC Sierra 2500 Diesel
We can’t seem to come up with a name.

If you are alone a Zero Gravity lounge chair like this works great in the Elite II.
It just fits between the galley and pantry and you can read or sleep in it for many hours. It’s cool in hot weather and has drink holders. Fold it up and stash it in the dining foot area or in the tow vehicle when not in use. You can’t walk past it to the beds without folding it, but if the back of the chair is placed towards the rear of the trailer you can get to everything else without much hassle. This will not work well with two people or dogs.
If you want to star gaze or watch an air show, take it outside and recline it all the way. Here is my wife Jac watching the Thunderbirds at Fairchild AFB.
Here is a previous thread about the lounger…

I just had an idea for any entrepreneurs out there. Create a latex/memory foam lounger that simply sets/lays atop a single bed and conforms perfectly to a lounge/recliner with a slanted back and curved through hips and legs, exact position most people sit in at home when watching TV. It would only have to be 4-5′ long and light enough to move or set aside if needed. In fact, make 2, 1 for TV watching and 1 for those who sleep in a recliner. Could possibly be a 2n1 with the highest portion removable. Just a thought.
Oops, too late.

I liked this lounge I saw at Costco store yesterday. The legs totally disappear underneath inside of outer frame when folded up. Lounge would then, I believe, lay nicely on top of mattress, flat facing either direction, with the back still adjustable from flat to nearly upright with several stops in between. The bottom half has a nice raised/sloped portion under knee area. One could also open legs and sit down in middle of trailer, and take outside also of course. It looks perfect for what I had in mind and more adjustable and usable than the foam idea I had in mind.
The 1 I saw at Costco was sold as 1, not in a pair, for much less money. I’m thinking it was closer to $200 apiece. However, my memory is spotty to say the least.
