Your trailer looks great and I hope the shakedown is going well. Thanks for introducing yourself at the sales office – I’m sorry that neither of us had much time to chat, but please post up about your LTE router and keep us up to date on your efforts to get HomeKit integrated into your trailer. I’m sure that many more besides me would love to hear about your setup.

Welcome! I am curious about your decision to tow your RV with an RV. What led to that decision, and what arrangements have you made for your camping set ups, etc?
Onward through the Fog!

Love the set up! We have discussed a Roadtrek as a TV and may still at some point. Have you had your Airstream for long?

Great question! My boys were little when we purchased the Airstream in 2014 and we all fit from a sleeping stand point until they became teenagers and are both approaching 6 feet plus tall. This way we have the flexibility to decided based on the current travel senecio what our sleeping/camping needs maybe. If we are just going from Home to a destination (say my parents house) we can take the Airstream with up up to 9 people with a bathroom and a fridge. But if we be needing mobile hotel room while going from Texas to the East Coast, we now have to seperate sleepling accomidations and can sleep up to 5 full size adults with now 2 bathrooms and 2 refrigerators and plenty of storage. If it is just me and the 2 boys and we are going to go camping, fishing, or hunting, I’ll hook the Oliver up to the back of my Ford F-150 Raptor and we are set. For me, I already had the Airstream and I wanted more modular flexibility that the Oliver gives me with longevity and quaility being the key! BTW the Airstream averaged 13 MPG from Oliver Factory in Tennessee back to home in Houston, TX, not to bad. Thanks for asking!September 23, 2017 at 4:02 pm #72001
We have had the Airstream since 2014 and have over 40,000 miles on it just from exploring the US and spending holidays with my family on the east coast. The 4 years of ownership and many miles have given me much time to figure out how to optimize RVing for how our family and uses the RV and our growing/changing needs. If I new then what I know now, I would have purchased a customer upfitted shorter wheelbase 4×4 Mercedes Sprinter that was dialed in to my exact needs and had an Oliver from day one!!!

Overland, It was great meeting you at the Sales Office as well. Since my delivery ran late and then it began to rain cats & dogs, I failed to get many of the upgrades & mods completed before I turned back around to drive home to Texas. I started to work on a few today (which I will post to forum) but at 95 degrees and the majority of the morning was spent on giving the trailer a good wash after the trip home. I do have one teaser photo for you. The trailer only dropped the bumper by 1.5 inches I was expecting 2+ inches so I need to reset the hitch height. More to come…

Welcome Cobra1169! Loved reading about how you plan to use your various vehicles with your Ollie. Sounds like you’ve got a good plan in the works. Let the good times roll!

This was exactly what we were discussing. What is the towing capacity? How was the drive?
