Thoughts after one week living in the Oliver

Here is my update on the Oliver after living full time in it for the first week.

The Oliver has a lot going for it, but the one thing that would keep me from buying one is it only has a little table for two. Your needs may differ, but we often like to have a guest or two over for a visit.

Yes, it's not set up for family camping or entertaining. The floorplan with the u-shaped dinette may be more compatible with having dinner parties. I figure, on the rare occasion I'm entertaining dinner guests, we are going to be eating outside. A casual cookout for 4 is about all I plan on mustering in the future!

I think with any RV you chose, what you are doing 90% of the time needs to guide your decision making, not what you may do on rare occasions. Time and time again though, you see posts of people stating they once had a rainy day, so they bought this huge trailer so they'd be comfortable all cooped up inside. I've been down that road. I'll never again have a gigantic RV with "everything". The downsides living with it everyday are just too much for that comfort on the rare occasions.

You know, when I cleaned out my 5th wheel, I had dinner service for 16? 16! That was just nuts.

If you get the king size bed setup, you do have a table that seats 4.

yeah, what Ron said....

ain't that the truth !!!!! and it's the very same thing with boats, Ron (been there, done that)... they even have a saying for it....

"The smaller the the boat, the more it gets used...and the more interesting places it gets to"

I should have taken a picture of my S.O. the first time I showed her the inside of the trailer I had just picked up......"a WET bath???"... LOL.....it only took 2-3 weekend trips...now she "GETS" it....and would NOT want anything bigger...just hook up and GO....anywhere...anytime
