  1. I am a few years away from purchasing, and though I know Oliver is a much better product than Airstream, I love the wrap around bay windows on the Airstream. Now, I am getting ready to have my first RV experience in a 20' Airstream, so I have no experience in staying in a TT. But, we think we want our bed in the rear, perhaps facing a stream/mountains etc.... I see that the Elite has a back window and side windows that would be in the bedroom, but they are not wrap around. Perhaps this is not something we will want, but it seems to me that it would be nice waking up and having a beautiful view. Is there something about the Oliver structure that would prevent them from having the bay wrap around widow, or are the windows in the Elite big enough to take in views? Just curious and learning. Thanks! Dwain
  2. Thanks everyone for input! Dwain
  3. Yeah, I thought that may be the case. This is why I am reading forums now. Thank you for your advice. Dwain
  4. I don't have an Ollie yet, but like to dream a little. Just wondering, if I picked up Ollie in from factory, and wanted to go out west, look at Grand Canyon, etc..., it looks like I-40 would be the best route. I am from Sarasota FL, and my wife and I have never traveled out west. We don't even have a TT, so this would ALL be new, and maybe too adventurous for our first trip. Your thoughts? Also, I would not want to travel more than 8-10 hours a day. Where would good RV parks be located to stop on the way. I would want full-hookups on this first adventure. Thanks for any responses! Dwain
  5. Some of the pics of Boondocking look awesome, BUT, it looks like your out in the boonies! Since I don't have an RV yet, will get an Oliver, I would be concerned of someone driving out to where my wife and I are and getting robbed etc.... I know that may sound hyper, but dangerous world today! Maybe I am thinking of Boondocking wrong. Are there other campers nearby for safety etc....? What if there is a medical emergency, then what? I know, life is full of risk. Looks exciting but scary. Dwain
  6. Thanks everyone for input! I don't think we will go to sites unless they have full hook-ups. It sounds like of you have full-hook-ups it's not that big of a deal. Dwain
  7. I am totally new to this, don't have an RV, but plan to get the Oliver Elite when I retire. I have never gone RVing, but my wife and I will be staying in our first RV in a few months. A few questions about sewage: 1. How messy (nasty) is it dealing with the black tank if you have a full hook up? 2 How messy (nasty) if you have to go to dump site? 3. If just me and my wife, if you have to use dump station, what is the normal time span before you you would have to dump with Oliver Elite? 4. Does the spay mechanism in the back tank help from not being so nasty? Thanks for any answers. A novice trying to learn. Dwain
  8. Just curious, is there anyone who purchased an Oliver, and regrets not purchasing a less expensive TT? I would assume the answer is no, but just curious. I have looked online at Escapes, but when I get ready, I am definitely leaning toward Ollie. Dwain
