EverGreen Upgrades Ever-Lite Travel Trailer Line



EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC has updated its Ever-Lite line of composite trailers to reflect dealer suggestions and industry trends, including new standard amenities and a lower price point.
According to a press release, the most noticeable change is to the Ever-Lite exterior. Besides the updated gray, metallic logo, the new graphic designs and skirt finish give the Ever-Lite an upscale look. A new standard addition on the exterior includes new clear stone shield on the high-gloss fiberglass cap.
Inside, the ceiling height is increased two inches for a more spacious feel. Decors offer all-new, lighter wood tones, textured wallboard, valances, drapes, wood blinds and rustic wood grain vinyl flooring. A completely revamped kitchen includes new raised panel cabinet doors with hardware, and designer countertops with backsplash. The new flush mount three-burner range features a glass cooktop for increased functionality and a modern look.
“We wanted to bring a sense of elegance and eye-appeal but keep the original Ever-Lite spirit alive,” said Ever-Lite Product Manager Doug Lantz. “Our goal was to evaluate our standard features and optional equipment and then reconfigure our packages. This creates additional savings for our dealers and added value to the consumer. Popular options have become standard, like the trifold sofa, hide-a-bed sofa and 8-cubic foot refrigerator. More expensive features have become optional, like the solid surface countertops.”
The entire coach is brighter with new LED lighting throughout while the living area offers a new furniture design and updated entertainment center. All Ever-Lite slides are at least 90-inches or larger and feature new flush-floor slides and fascia for increased living space in an attractive package.
Four new floorplans join the Ever-Lite lineup: EL294RKS, EL298RLS, EL331TTS and EL322RLT. The EL276RLS, EL32REW and EL292FLBS were updated with new bedroom configurations featuring a bedroom slide. This bedroom slide is also a feature in the new EL294RKS and EL331TTS. All bed slide models have full pass-through storage in the wardrobe providing functional storage.

2016 Class A Diesel Motorhomes Upgrades


An article from Thor Motor Coach:

At Thor Motor Coach, we make sure every motorhome we manufacture is “Made to Fit.” Our diverse product line already includes some of the world’s most recognized Class A and Class C motorhomes and in a recent press release we announced how we’re making some of those brands even better.
Our diesel line-up is already receiving high marks from consumers on our innovative 2016 motorhomes. Between the Tuscany, Tuscany XTE and Palazzo brands, you can definitely find a diesel pusher that feels custom-made, at a competitive price.
The New 2016 Tuscany
2016 Tuscany Luxury RV
We’ve redesigned the Tuscany from the ground up. We wanted to greatly increase exterior storage, so we started with a new basement structure. We also included an industry leading, first-in-class push-button engine start. We’ve also included hydraulic slide rooms and five new full-body paint packages.
2016 Tuscany 40DX
Walking into the Tuscany, the first thing you’ll notice are the solid surface entry steps and the polished porcelain tile, which are married perfectly with the Tuscany’s high-gloss glazed Amish crafted cabinetry. Looking up, it’s hard not to be dazzled by the new ceiling treatment, which gives the Tuscany a real luxury vibe. The elegant furniture styling coupled with the rear master bedroom (with en suite) makes this RV feel like a home.
The New 2016 Tuscany XTE
2016 Tuscany XTE Baja 40AX Passenger Side Exterior
Equally impressive are the changes to the 2016 Tuscany XTE, which received new porcelain tile flooring, kitchen backsplash and faucets. The 2016 Tuscany XTE also features the highly-anticipated full-body paint packages.
Luxury RV With a Bunkhouse
We’ve also included the very popular bunk bed configuration in the Tuscany XTE’s 40BX floorplan.
2016 Tuscany XTE 40BX Ivory Sonata Resort Cherry
Meanwhile, the 34ST and 36MQ floorplans allow consumers to maintain a luxury lifestyle in a small RV. We didn’t stop with the living quarters – the 2016 Tuscany XTE also received a very user-friendly Axxera™ dash radio with 10” screen, which is great for viewing.
The New 2016 Palazzo
2016 Palazzo Motorhome
Our Palazzo motorhomes also received a major overhaul for 2016 with a new front cap and striking full-body paint exterior graphics.
2016 Palazzo 36-2 Encore Resort Cherry Entrance
You’ll love using the new indulgent amenities that we’re including in this luxury RV, including a decorative kitchen backsplash, window treatments, furniture and accent lighting with frosted, white swirl glass.
The power drop-down overhead bunk, located above the cockpit seating, now features a brand new Cotton Cloud™ mattress, replacing the old air mattresses.
Continuing the theme of luxury, Palazzo owners now have the option to choose from the same high-gloss glazed Amish crafted cabinetry found in Tuscany and Tuscany XTE motorhomes.
Across The Board
All of our diesel motorhomes received functional upgrades, including a new dash radio with a large 10-inch screen. In the Palazzo and Tuscany XTE, drivers can easily see incoming phone calls or find their favorite radio station. Tuscany motorhomes go a step further by featuring Rand McNally® GPS Navigation. Other features, which have consumers talking are the LG Hi-Macs® solid surface countertops, Whirlpool® appliances and Sony® electronics.
To find the diesel motorhome that is made to fit your lifestyle, visit ThorMotorCoach.com. As the industry leader in innovative design, we build a variety of unique styles, sizes and floor plans that feel custom-made – at a truly competitive price.

Winnebago Enters Toy Hauler Market in a Big Way


For off-roaders, nothing beats a day of riding in the dirt with family and friends — except ending that day with a shower, home-cooked meal and a comfortable bed. So it’s no wonder that toy haulers — half RV, half cargo trailer — are increasingly popular among those who like outdoor action sports.

With its new fifth-wheel Scorpion toy hauler, Winnebago Towables has upped the ante, and now offers a total of five toy-hauler floorplans to meet the needs of almost any outdoor action-sport enthusiast.

The new Scorpion is a full-featured fifth-wheel, with three slideouts, private master suite and separate guest bath off the kitchen. With abundant living space, plenty of exterior and interior storage and flexible sleeping options for up to 10, the Scorpion will be on the short list for anyone looking for the ultimate toy hauler.

Winnebago’s Spyder is a travel trailer that offers a well-balanced list of standard equipment and upgrades. Offered in four functional floorplans, it features space-maximizing amenities including a barreled ceiling for extra height, full-sized shower, walk-around queen bed and built-in toolbox. Other available amenities include a Rockford Fosgate stereo system, stainless steel appliance package, and an electric queen bunk in the garage area.


Find out more about the Scorpion and Spyder, as well as Winnebago’s entire lineup, here.
