REMEMBERING

It was back in September of 2007, the 9th day, a Saturday as I recall, when I saw my first Oliver travel trailer. I had cruised through the web site, called the factory and talked to the guy in the parts room. The Sales Manager at the time was going to show one at the River Valley Egg Rally in Van Buren Arkansas, and Betty and I drove up to take a look.

My cell phone was fairly new, but the technology just wasn’t there yet and it took grainy and blurry videos that were three minutes long.

As soon as I got back home, I put them up on YouTube so I could show the Oliver to friends.

YouTube didn’t stabilize the video back then, so they were pretty shakey.

The old cell phone didn’t have much memory so it was maxed out on the fourth video.

We just absolutely fell in love with the Oliver and soon we were at the factory picking up our Ollie.

It was hull #3.

The Oliver Travel Trailer makes a lasting impression on every one that sees it, or so it seems. Do you remember the first Oliver that you saw ?

The first Oliver I ever saw was sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Tupelo. Although I didn't know it at the time, it belonged to Tom and Karen Whaley.
