Donna, I was impressed. It was like the Oliver
Research and Development department had read the various forums and had actually listened ! Many of the modifications that are made by owners of Casita
, ect, ect, were standard features in the Oliver. Most of the major areas where improvements are usually needed in a box stock coach, are met at the outset by the factory. Examples:
Exterior ground lighting
Three way door light
switching to LED's
(4 of them ) LED's
Third brake light
for increased visibility
Three point electric jack leveling system, ( will lift tires
off of the ground if needed ! )
Increased capacaties, over 30 gal fresh water
isn't increased even with the lager tanks !
Lockable fiberglass toungue box
From my perspective, that of a mostly boondocker, the coach is much more energy efficent and will give extended wilderness stays in greater comfort. The interior lighting
is LED's. With the optima batterys this coach should lend it's self well to a solar
setup. There are so many well engineered things that it is difficult to think of them all. My wife is anxious to see the 2008 that has many more improvements, such as a flush with the counter cook top !
Because we winter boondock, we were concerned about holding tank freeze up. They have the tanks inside and protected with a thinsulate blanket. Even the dump valves are not exposed.
Overall I was well impressed with how well thought out the coach is
