Oliver or Escape

Does anyone in Northern California or Nevada have an Oliver or Escape they would be willing show?
My search for a Bigfoot is proving to be very difficult and am considering alternatives.

Mike, I know if you contact Escape, they will set you up with a local owner for viewing. I would imagine Oliver will do the same.

Yes, Oliver has a network of Owners that have agreed to show their units when asked.

Thanks Jim, I knew that, but figured I'd ask here first. That's how we first viewed a Casita.

Its unfortunate you where not able to take a trip up to the Oregon Gathering last week-end there were about 10 Escapes present. Would have given you a chance to see the different owners preferences as to interior layouts they choose.

Was that the 25th and 26th or the previous weekend. I was in Oregon at the Bigfoot dealer the previous weekend 18th and 19th.

That is what I wanted. I think you are on the map of owners willing to show from Oliver website. I was hoping you would respond instead of calling Oliver.
I'd love to view it.
I'll send a private message with my contact info

The Oliver is truly the Lamborghini of fiberglass trailers. I hope their claim about 4 seasons is correct - especially with regard to condensation.
We had a 19 ft Escape and were caught in a blizzard in Utah. We paid extra for dual pane windows and the insulation package, plus extra for the under-coach foam spray and tank heating pads.
In spite of these extras (about $2,000 or so added expense), the coach struggled to keep warm. Even with a dehumidifier blasting, there were BUCKETS of water pouring down the interior walls in condensation. We got through it ok, but it was not pleasant.
The Oliver would be our first choice if we wanted another replacement. We are looking seriously at getting one soon.

You'll have the same condensation issue in any trailer, including Oliver, unless you stop breathing.

Condensation happens. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not happening. Mattresses and other fabrics LOVE moisture. Check out threads about mold. Those folks didn't see moisture running down their walls either... it went somewhere.

New super-sealed and insulated homes require systems to remove moisture or suffer from mold.
My old house leaks like a sieve and we have no condensation problems. We just have a high heat bill.
No issue with pipes bursting in the winter either.

Alas - we were hoping better insulation would help. There was no problem with condensation in the warmer months with the Escape we had, even if our trailer was closed up (no AC).
So keeping the interior warm won't help?

The trailer should never be closed up. Windows need to be cracked and the Maxx fan on to relieve the condensation situation. Cold air meets warm air. --- it's a problem. As Glenn mentioned, breathing is one of the big condensation problems.
