Floor level view of the nightstand drawer and the storage areas beneath our twin beds. The hatches that are open lead into the basement. A small electric heater will keep the interior nice and toasty all Winter. Leaving the basement access hatches open will keep all the plumbing warm.

Steve,

Why do your twins look so different from all the pics I've seen, including Kathy's? I wasn't aware there were access doors in the side of the beds.

Kathy,

What color name are your countertops? There are a few that are very similar in the samples I received.

Hi Ron, the countertops are the lightest color (think the sample was painted white on the back). Our most difficult decision was the decals...everything else was easy.

I had asked for storage space under our beds. Working with Steve Parsons (Oliver's resident fiberglass guru), we came up with a raised bed platform with access doors in the side that gives us some 15 additional cubic feet of storage space under each bed. They had to construct two new molds to make these. They have worked out really well for us.

At Walmart, I found some totes made by Sterilite that were a perfect fit. You can fit 4 of the large or 8 of the small ones (or various combinations of the two) under each bed.

Not sure I'd want those beds up that high, appears that you will be sleeping at window level, maybe a bit colder vs the insulated walls.

We are in countdown mode to our December 1 delivery. I hope the Ollie really is a four season camper because it is cold in Hohenwald.

We picked up our trailer last Wed and stayed over at the Fall Hollow Campground and it was quite cold. We set the thermostat at 67 and were right comfortable.
We have no plans to do any "cold weather camping", we is too old for that crazyness. Afraid it will be a long winter waiting for spring. Maybe next winter we will head south for some of the winter.

Hey Outlaw,

They have had nigh time lows in the 20s. That'll freeze your pipes for sure. Here in N.Florida we will drop to 28 tomorrow with 20 mph wind. That is about 30 degrees below normal night temps here.

Our plan is to spend a few extra days in TN after the delivery, but I will head South if itis bitter cold.

Stan. How long was the delivery walk through? I want to be set up at Fall Hollow before dark and we will need to fill the propane tanks, and provision at A local grocery.

Stan. Post a photo of your Oliver at delivery if you are able. We all like to share the experience of a new trailer.

We spent most of the day going over things, which included going to lunch with Robert,Alicia, Sherry,and Paul up at the Junk Yard Dog. Had a really nice visit with Sherry and Paul. Went to Tractor Supply to get bottles filled and their system was down so went across town to the lumber yard and filled up there. There was still enough time to go out to Fall Hollow and get setup with Roberts help. Make sure you bring about 6 pieces of 2x6 lumber to put under the jacks.
Next morning Robert stopped by and since we decided to not stop in Missouri, he walked us through the black/gray water dumping and then we went to the plant and they winterized it for us. Thank full for that since we were coming home to weather in the teens and it was about 11pm when we got home.
Don't have any pics at pickup but took some here at home. Will have to figure out how to get them on the forum.

Stan

Stan, Thank you for the reply. When you say bring some 2 x 6s I assume that is to keep the jacks from sinking into the ground when not on a concrete or gravel pad. We have always used the yellow lego style plastic blocks for that with our Casita. Do you feel that additional support is needed for the Oliver?

I would assume that is what he's suggesting. I'd think there is plenty of throw on those jacks, as I've seen pics with the wheels off the ground.

On trailers I've had in the past, I've liked to use a 6x6 block on the front jack to give a bit more travel. Often these are only good for 24" total, which may not be quite enough if you have a full size truck or SUV.
