It is priced in Airstream territory and you can't even get into the WBCCI with one.
Not much wonder the Oliver brothers ran out of customers after 45 sales.

I sold my loaded out 2008 Airstream 16 ft DWR to buy a 2008 Oliver. It was one of the best moves I ever made. If you go to the AS forum you will read about all kinds of problems concerning their Airstream trailers, including poor workmanship at the factory, rotting floors from leaks
, old technology still being used, etc. The Oliver I bought is bulletproof, much like your Casitas, however, the Oliver is like a Casita on steroids.
While I was on the road with my Oliver in Montana a couple came up to me and asked if they could look at my Casita. They were looking to buy one. I told them that it was not a Casita and welcomed them to look. After they took a tour the husband took me aside and told me that this was going to be a problem for him because now his wife would never be satisfied with a Casita.
Bottom line is that in my opinion, the Oliver is way better than my 16 Bambi DWR, even though I paid quite a bit less for the Oliver.
By the way, I just came back from the Oliver factory where they replaced my 3500# axel for a new 5200# axel at no charge to me. They are talking about making Olivers again sometime next year. Believe me, there would be no problem selling new Olivers for $35,000 to people looking at similar Airstreams for $54,000, which is what my Airstream retailed for when new. The resale value on these Olivers is also phenomenal. You pay more but are able to enjoy
the Olivers great features and if you need to sell it you are going to get most of your money back. I love the fact that there are only 45 Olivers in the world and that I own one, but would love to see them back in production so that others can experience this great product, made in America by proud Americans.
