I find a lot to like in the Oliver. The double hull fiberglass would be a better insulated trailer, and fiberglass is far easier to maintain and repair than aluminum. I've owned both a Casita as well as a sailing yacht, and prefer fiberglass for strength and durability. Design wise, Airstream could take a lesson from the 23' Oliver in providing both a front generator platform and a rear receiver hitch. Were I buying today, I would likely choose the Oliver over my 23' Airstream.

If we liked our Casita 17' enough we'd probably switched to an Oliver fully loaded but we decided to move on to Airstream. Just wanted to get away from a wet bath and prefer the space and separate bedroom.

For a solo person an Oliver would be a great choice. I'd probably set it up similar to this reviewer's Oliver

if they made a 25' model with a lot more windows I'd be interested in the Olivers. They have some great features and I really dig the fiberglass construction, but the small windows wouldn't work for me. I spend 8 hours a day in my trailer working, and I need some BIG windows to look outside.
