I apologize, but I haven't been on here as much lately as I would have like to. I promise that I am going to do my best to be more active on the forums. I really do want to answer all of the questions that may be floating around in "fiberglass-land".

I know this thread started with a statement about the big differences in price between the Oliver and some other manufacturers. I just wanted to let all of you know that the Oliver Legacy comes in two different option packages. The one priced at $26,500 is the Legacy Elite. Oliver also offers the Legacy Classic which starts at $16,500. The Classic is more of a base model, but still comes with all 3 holding tanks, toilet, shower, custom molded double-walls, alluminum frame and its superior insulation.

I hope that this has bee some help.

I've looked at the You Tube videos of the Oliver. It clearly has lots of features that appeal to the person leveling the trailer and taking care of all the externals, but I didn't see much discussion of the interior.

As best I could tell, the kitchen was nearly nonexistent - I saw absolutely no counter space and only a 2-burner cooktop. The sink looked very small as well. Am I missing something? How about storage? How does kitchen and other storage compare to other trailers?

Which "other trailers"? From looking at their floorplan, the Oliver's galley space looks very similar to a Casita Spirit. Indeed, it's spartan compared to my mom's 26 ft. Coachmen Catalina (stickie), but for one of these (16-17 ft.) FGRVs, the Oliver looks like it's in the same neighborhood. (FWIW, the Casita Liberty floorplan has a little more counter top between the sink and stove, at the cost of having no side dinette.)

I expect that after looking at the signature line below, most have figured out that we have purchased a 08' Oliver Legacy Elite. So far we have towed it all over Central Tennessee's rolling hills and Arkansas mountains. It pulls great, with no hint of bound, sway or any other negative trait. Even at interstate Highway speeds and the 4" lift with 15" tires, it exibits exemplary deportment.
With a full water tank and partialy full gray & black tanks the v6 Jeep was getting 16 + MPG at speeds keeping up with the rest of the traffic.
During the first week of January 08', we plan to visit the central Tennessee mountains on about a 1700 mile trip and will, no doubt have learned more about the Oliver.
Cost more, yes. Is it worth it, yes. Are we pleased so far, yes. So far the modifications that we have deemed necessary are to 3M tape a inside/outside thermometer to a wall and also the remote start/stop button for the Yamaha gen set. We like that. Using it instead of working on it is good.
Oliver has kept in touch with us very well and as updates become available have advised us. We may stop by the factory while in Tennessee and see what some of the new "things", look like, who knows we may even take advantage of Oliver's gracious hospitality.
We will miss seeing Jared if we do go by there. He became a good friend and we are staying touch by phone, text and email. Marlisa and he are looking for a egg, so we look forward to camping with them. We have talked about Boca Chica State Park in extreme South Texas.

That is pretty good gas mileage for your Jeep. IF you end up stopping by Oliver in TN, Let us know if a black model will be offered to the public. I read a post that the owner has a black one but did not know if that was going to be offered to the public. Was your remote generator starter added from Oliver or from your generator MFG? This would sure be handy if a generator was mounted inside a secure box like others have done. Thanks in advance.

Nice mileage indeed! Is that a diesel?

I heard from the factory a few days ago that Jim and Evon Oliver "MIGHT" have a black Oliver at the Las Vegas Show in January. I don't know if the coffee break chit chat of the guys in the shop is 100%, but those guys have their hands on everything that goes down the production line.
I didn't see a black one on the assembly line at my last visit, in November, and I was in every department. Now, that makes me wonder if they have a "special projects" department where they could prepare one in secret for a supprise un-veiling at Las Vegas.
About the gas mileage, it is a v6 gas engine, that mileage quote is from the electronic read out in the instrument cluster. I have never put a calculator to it. When going into a head wind the mileage dropped to 14.5 MPG the next day, very flat country, between Memphis and Little Rock.
The Yamaha generator remote start/stop kit was installed by a Yamaha dealer. It was an after market item, though the dealer says that Yamaha has a kit in the works, to be out soon. A fabrication shop is building a box that will mount on the extensible tongue in existing bolt holes. It will lock and the cover will tip off for operation. It is a 3000 watt inverter type genset and is extremely quiet.
