We want to introduce you to a camping family that stayed with us in July of this summer. They are Dennis & Pat MacVittie from Fulton, NY!
They camped with us on their way home from purchasing their Oliver Travel Trailer that was built in Hohenwald, TN. Their new Oliver travel trailer was the 153rd one built on the line. One of the first things that caught my eye was that they were pulling it with a diesel powered Jeep!
Their new Oliver travel trailer wasn’t their first experience at RVing. They started camping when they retired in 2009 with an “A Liner” trailer. Dennis retired from the Army. Pat is a retired middle school Consumer Science Teacher. Dennis is a marathon runner, so they put over 40,000 miles on it from Nova Scotia to all over Western US attending marathon races.
They saw Oliver Travel trailers were featured in the April issue of the Trailer Life Magazine. They were intrigued by the article and decided to go to Tennessee and tour the factory. They liked what they saw and placed their order while they were there.
Their travel trailer took eight weeks to build. They went back to Tennessee to pick it up and did a short “shakedown cruise”. A shakedown cruise is a camping trip taken by purchasers of a new RV to make sure they’ve “worked all the bugs out” before a big trip! Nothing ruins a vacation any faster than vehicle or RV trouble while traveling. So most prudent new owners do a trial run to help prevent such catastrophes!
They were on their way back home to Fulton, NY when they decided to stop for the night at Meadville KOA! We’re so glad they did. Not only did we get to meet a really nice camping couple, but it allowed me an up close and personal glimpse at an Oliver travel trailer. The Oliver travel trailers are pretty neat looking and compact. Inside, their streamlined design is sleek and elegant. The fiberglass exterior’s rounded design is sure to be arrow dynamic.
The seemed happy with their decision thus far, and were sure excited to allow me to see in it and get a glimpse of this new innovative design RV.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this look at one of our camping families this summer, and their new Oliver travel trailer. We hope you’ll check out Oliver trailers at http://olivertraveltrailers.com/.
We hope that you’ll come see what’s behind the yellow sign at Meadville KOA this summer, bring the family and spend your vacation enjoying a campground where modern convenience meets nature!
Until we see you, we wish you safe and happy kamping, where ever your travels take you!
