Mostly due to the electronic systems.

I won't be buying for another year so I will be watching the progress of the Oliver carefully. I love the look and quality of them. But maybe not the price tag...

Want to tow a pretty dang heavy trailer with an SUV? Check out the Toyota Sequoia. Dennis & Charlene tow a Bigfoot 21' with their Sequoia. Nice tow vehicle!

Nissan armada, Toyota sequoia, chevy suburban/Tahoe/Yukon, ford excursion/expedition, dodge Durango...shall I go on?

Oh, and it's illegal to have people in your trailer while towing, unless it's a fifth wheel (in some states), and even then, not recommended.

A true 4200 lb dry weight could easily stay under 5000 loaded.

The Nissan Pathfinder 6 cylinder pulls 6,000 lb and the 8 cylinder pulls 7,000.

Anyone know the tongue weight of the Oliver. I know in the past it had a sliding tongue of something like 24" to offset trailer weight if needed.

Posted some new pictures on our Facebook page of some of the interior storage and the central heat vent in the bathroom.

Love the ducted heat and heated bath, that was on my list of improvements and glad to see someone is now doing that. What is the size of the furnace in the Oliver?

It's really beautiful. Interesting that you have all drawers under the sink and stove rather than cabinets. At least, I think that is what I saw. I'm not sure I like the mirrored cabinet doors, though, that might be a bit too much light reflection. Especially at night.

Hello Rosemary.
on the mirrors it seems either a person loves them or wants nothing to do with them. Some commits are "I do not want to see myself every time I turn around"...lol...so with that being said we do offer the option of a black door.
