Robert P. Do you know what the ALU beams circled are for? Does the inner yoke sit down on these and are the holding take laid down around them also? Thanks. (photo from your facebook)

I thought those were the ducts for the heat because they have ducted heat now.

Those beams sit between the two water tanks (fresh and gray) and support the center of the inner shell.

They are for the center walk way of the yoke and they do keep the holding tanks in place from sliding around. I will see if I can locate some pictures with the tanks installed.
Thanks for asking

This photo is of one of the original 17 foot Oliver's during construction taken in January 2008. It shows the square aluminum tube between the fresh water tank (left) and the grey tank (right) that makes an "L" shape around the fresh tank. At this point the lower outside hull is being roughed out. The two rear electric jacks are in place as is the water heater and the wiring is in the process of being bundled and routed. The corrugated hose attached to the fresh tank is the fill overflow. The shiny aluminum plate at the rear is the support for the spare tire.

The difference will be in the double hull construction and all of the extras that are built into the Oliver.

Indeed the double super insulated hulls are attractive but a little heavier. We'll be opting for the warmest trailer we can find and I the Oliver may be it.

I just read on the Oliver Trailer Facebook site that the new 22' Oliver has a dry weight of 3700 pounds. My fully loaded 17' Oliver has a wet weight of about 3800 pounds.

How do they define dry? Is it no appliances, no leveling jacks (3 of them), no battery, no solar, no kingdome, no roof AC or spare tire ETC? Single or dual pane windows? Some sticky Manuf's state it this way. Makes it hard for the consumer to figure out when we assume it's just liquids Thanks in advance.

Water on board, grey/black tanks in use or full versus dry no water........


Some add propane to that mix...

Our 17 footer weighed in at about 3660 ready to travel, but we had a Yamaha 3000 sitting on the tongue
