Today it felt like spring here in southern New Hampshire with temps in the high 30s. So, I spent a few minutes shooting another video for comic relief!
I remember my Ollie purchase cycle and all the decisions I needed to make and understand. It was a dizzying experience! In retrospect, I did not give enough thought to the interior fabrics. This video is an attempt to help prospective owners avoid the initial mistakes I made and show it is possible to have a “redo” of the interior fabrics.

Enjoyed the video.
Your taste in fabric, for a guy, is impressive.
If things don’t work out in your new field of study, you can always consider interior design. 🙂
Really, your Ollie looks great. Your new puppy is going to be the lucky one.

Great job, Buzzy. Thanks you.
It is difficult to work your way through the list of choices.
Your vids are invaluable.

Nice video Buzzy, as they all have been. Always look forward to the latest installment.
I found the Contract grade fabrics Oliver offers to be a bit on the scratchy side. Good, durable fabric, but not the smoothest stuff to run your hands over. I was also looking for a different pattern style. Anyone who is in the build stage and thinking of fabrics may want to consider going to a local upholstery shop and picking out other patterns and/or textures that may suit them better. Unless of course you like what Oliver offers in house. Oliver gives a generous credit if you don’t use their fabric. They will tell you how much to order, and the address of their upholstery guy. Our fabric shop mailed it to him no problem at all. After the extra cost for the fabric and shipping, we only paid $60.00 more than the credit Oliver gave us. This was money very well spent to me.

Thanks Buzzy! Your video photography is superb so makes me wonder what camera you are using? I chose the black door covers too, but my wife overrode it so we got the mirrored door in the biggest shelf to add length to the trailer and then she chose the opaque doors for the rest of the shelves since she wanted the lighted surround at night which, I think will look pretty cool. So, one has several choices for the shelf door covers and I think it’s four. Mirrored, black, opaque, and white if I’m not mistaken. It’s been so long since we ordered I cannot remember everything. No fault of Oliver, but our trailer was done before we were ready to pick it up as we had planned an overseas trip and then ordered our Ollie.

Pretty sure we did not have a choice on the doors, mirror or mirror, so we chose mirror.

T minus = 1 month => Buddy arriving on March 3, 2017
How far does he live from you in his temporary home?
Don’t forget we need Buddy Bear meets Oliver Video!
Consider catching as an air freshener – puppy breath – and we get first dibs.
He will love the digs!
Good choice on colors.
Pretty doggy disguising on wear.
Gray is a good choice for base color palette.
I figured it would help disguise dirt and sand some.
We use covers (sheets, blankets, towels, afghans, etc. ) on our fabrics to keep the dirt attaching to a minimum.
So what does Buddy Bear’s bed look like?
Or will he share Daddy’s?
Keep those simple sweet short videos comin’
You have a real fan base 🙂
And what is it with all that four letter word S N O W?

Hi. New to Forum & only ordered this past week. Question: how do I ‘see’ the videos? When I click on them it states ‘This video is provate’. Thx.

Unfortunately the videos aren’t available at the moment. Hopefully they’ll be back up someday. We’re also looking forward to a set of videos that Oliver is supposedly finishing up covering many of the same topics.
Congrats on your order, by the way. When is your trailer scheduled to go into production?
