Hi: Brian B-P... Our E-Z Flex system got a real workout on the interstates of eastern USA this winter. The bi-ways are in deplorable condition. I'm still vibrating ~~~ Alf

Too bad this nice handy feature is gone in 2018 in the Oliver forum.

The manufacturer of the on-board jacks does NOT recommend using the jacks to lift the weight of the trailer even as a temporary use for changing a tire...

We looked hard at an Oliver last year as we were searching a trailer that would allow us to use water systems in temps we encounter in Wyoming in the winter. Unless you require that capability, the Escape line offers a better value IMO.

Hi Don, Just curious how your VW Touareg TDI has held up over the past few years towing your twin axle Oliver. That's impressive towing performance for the Touareg's size. Dale

I'm curious too... but I'll also note that the Touareg is no longer available in North America. The related Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne are still around, but under the VW nameplate the largest SUV is now the Atlas, which is built on a different platform and has substantially lower towing capacity.
