I forgot to throw some blocks in the truck and I guess I thought those yellow blocks they used in the sales shop came with the trailer. ( silly me) The ground was pretty soft and they sunk in the ground quite a bit. The bigger foot print the better and yeah a 6x6 would be good all around. It has no problem getting all 4 wheels off he ground.

Wow. Those must be some strong jacks. Is it necessary to lift the trailer fully off the ground? Makes for a tall step. I have eight of those yellow lego blocks. My thinking is to start with a tall base and take some torque off the jacks. I am glad to hear that you stayed warm with the furnace. We will start out with our electric cube heater and see how that works using the furnace as a failsafe. The furnace in our Casita was so noisy we could not sleep. I am hoping the Ollie will be better because of the location in the basement. What was your experience?

Now that there more Oliver owners out there we should have a rally, or at least tag on to an egg rally.

During our tour of the factory I thought the furnace ran fairly quiet, nothing like what most surface mounted heating systems sound in some RV's. I would encourage you to use the furnace.

Excellent. That will be nice.
especially with the central heating to keep the head warm.

Kathy, were those photos taken at Land Between the lakes? Looks familiar, but.
We camped there a few years ago. Had a family of little skunks parade next to our feet, through the campsite.... We sat very, very still, and had no issues.

Sherry, yes, it was at Land Between the Lakes...Beautiful area. We were at the fiberglass rally several weeks ago. We heard there were skunks on the row behind us so we were watching. Glad you didn't get sprayed...eeewwww.

The following morning, we met a really nice couple in a Casita at the dump station. They weren't so lucky. Their little dog saw the skunks first, jumped from her lap, and got sprayed. The wife scooped up the pup and tossed the dog in the trailer to avoid further confrontation. Now both the dog and the trailer were perfumed by Eau de pepe le Pew. I felt really bad for them. Fortunately, they were on their way home. I was glad our little dog wasn't with us on that trip, as he might have done just the same thing.
We really enjoyed the campground at LBL. It was pretty busy the weekend we were there, and the hosts gave us a spot in the tent section, with a beautiful view, and very few other campers.

Oh geez this reminds me of an event many years ago when my wife and I were out car camping in the Gallatin National Forest with our two german shepherds at the time, long since departed. So its the middle of the night 2 or 3 o'clock in the early hours give or take and low and behold a skunk comes marching through our campsite. Dogs being what they are charged and got sprayed, or in this case more like getting hosed, saturated. We're tent camping mind you.

The stench was so horrific you simply could not sleep for the rest of the night and by morning it was so bad its as if the both of us felt like we had the flu, an extreme dose of this stuff really does have this affect on you. I'm dead serious about this. So the next day we head into the nearest town some 30 or 40 miles away to get anything we could to squelch the smell. We tried everything too, none of it worked. So by now we've been riding around in the car with two stinking pooches and no telling how we smelt by then too.

For what ever reason we decided to rub crushed up sage brush all over the dogs, figuring if nothing else it will at least mask the smell if not get rid of it. Much to our surprise it actually did eliminate the majority of the skunk smell. It seemed to neutralize to a large degree what ever chemical is in this fluid. Regardless we packed it in and headed back home after a day of that.

The moral of the story is… well there may not be a moral. don't take your dog camping? At least hope you're near some sage brush if they do get sprayed.

Makes me sick at my stomach just to think about it...Would probably shave the dog and sell the trailer!
