EverGreen to Display New i-Go at Open House

EverGreen's i-Go Lite trailer

EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC, a leading innovator in lightweight, eco-friendly, sustainable, composite travel trailers and fifth-wheels, will be holding a dealer open house at its manufacturing headquarters in Middlebury, Ind.

As part of the Elkhart County 4th Annual RV Open House, Evergreen will be hosting its new product showcase display Sept. 19-23, running 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

Products showcased in the display include:

• New EverGreen i-Go Lite: The exciting new lightweight line of i-Go Lite travel trailers and fifth-wheels is easier to tow because of its narrower seven-foot six-inch width. The line is priced right to sell but still retains EverGreen’s exclusive composite inner shell, all wrapped into a quality, vacuum laminated camper.

• New Tandem Axel Element 26 Series: The line features a fully equipped bath, new convenience features and a larger 26-foot floor plan with heavier capacity tandem axles. The Element is gaining momentum with its fusion of styles between classic American automotive design and the latest in aerodynamic, European-inspired camping trailers. The company said there will also be a variety of Ever-Lite floorplans.

As I am beginning to become more familiar with Evergreen products, it appears they are making great strides in reducing indoor air pollutants (VOCs including formaldehyde especially) in their RVs for those of us frustrated with the RV industry’s slow move in this direction. Evergreen, I hope you keep impressing me as I learn more!

Why destroy a good design in the i-Go G220RB with a 695 lb tongue weight (15% of the now 4650 lbs UVW). This is around 60% of payload on many 1/2 ton pickups and exceeds their hitch rating which typically ranges form 600 to 650 lbs. The original information I received on this trailer was 4500 lbs UVW and 430 lbs hitch which would have been acceptable weights for my tow vehicle. Yes, a weight distribution hitch would help put some of this additional 265 lb tongue weight on the trailer tires but more would wind up needlessly on the GVW of the tow vehicle, thus limiting its passengers and cargo capacity. Suggestion to correct this design problem…why not delete the entertainment center (weight), incorporate the TV into the Pantry area and relocate the axles slightly forward so that only 10% of the UVW is on the hitch. To me the entertainment center diminished the “open feel” for this trailer and it was hard to access the under bed storage since the mattress literally rubs against the entertainment center. Other than the weights and entertainment center, I really liked seeing the trailer and would most likely have negotiated a purchase.
