Rumors from Scamp

Interesting about infrared. Black vehicles are very popular in Florida but I also tend to purchase lighter colored cars.

Ken
The white covering is irrelevant as to the need for a shower curtain, look at the door, it is not designed to seal. If you do not use a shower curtain you will almost certainly get water on the floor outside the bathroom and wet the edge of the door in the process. The waterproof coating can deal with what little water gets around the curtain and the entire inside of the shower including the door is easily wiped down after each shower. Ours has been used many hundreds of times and still appears as new.

I wish you could watch an Oliver being built, you would quickly find an exception to the "poorly constructed" rule. Having owned two of them and been to the factory 20 or more times, I can tell you honestly that they are of the same quality (build, fit and finish) as any yacht.

I see they have introduced the new smaller unit: Legacy Elite | Oliver Travel Trailers

They seem nice but the price exceeds what I am comfortable in spending. We are very "campy" versus "RVing Lifestyle". I do think the smaller unit might sell a little better since smaller units of all types right now are "HOT".

Seen them, wouldn't trade!...But then I wouldn't trade my Mustang for Bentley either!
Knowing full well that the cost of ownership would be too high and the fun of operation too low.
Is there going to be an Oliver13?? I know they discussed it once.
Hey...It does have an RVIA sticker!( they don't makem chrome any more)

Rumor has it that back in 1917, a Packard driver pulled up along side a $360 Model "T" . He looked over with disdain and yelled...
"HEY! What's all that rattling noise I'm hearing?"
The guy in the Model "T" just smiled back and replied...
"That's $5000 of change in the trunk!"
(They still make Fords)

You're right Floyd. Fun and pleasure are definitely not related to cost or shine.

It's how you use your time.

Our cost of living, the amount of our living space, the cost of our travel has dropped dramatically since we retired, yet we are having the time of our lives.

I would not take anything, except our children, over the time we've had had traveling together in an RV for the last 14 years.

Personally, I would like to see them make a 19, 19.5, or 20. Something in between the two they make now. I know, you just can't satisfy some folks.
