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.
