So far, we love it and have pulled it about 3,000 miles. We just got back from Moab on Wednesday. Because of the cold weather in Utah, I've kept the general water system winterized and the drinking water tank heater on while driving. I've also installed a recirculating system to help with freeze protection and preserve water. We took it through Cotter Mine Road, just north of Moab, which is a fairly serious 4WD Jeep trail, then enjoyed the luxury of it in the blowing snow that night. It does both, the off-road and the luxury apartment thing, quite well.
I've discovered that there are three categories of trailer: The typical American stickie, the molded fiberglass, and the Australian Caravan. Each, much different than the others. I gave up on stickies years ago. Our Oliver
was a very nice trailer and best in a number of ways, but the HQ19 suits us better and is unique in it's features.
There aren't many around and I'm glad you got to see one up close. I'm helping set up a website, similar to this one, that is dedicated to Caravans, so we can begin to build a community. Last week was the first annual Black Series Rally
near Moab. We'll be in Quartzsite in January, then at the Oliver Rally
in Guntersville, Alabama in May (where the Black Series will make me the Black Sheep of the family), and finally, at the Smithsonian in June.
