EverGreen’s Bay Hill Targets High-End Market
EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC has entered the high-end fifth-wheel segment with the introduction of the Bay Hill series, offering six floorplans with as many as five slideouts. ”We are looking for first-time at fifth-wheel buyers who want a little higher-end coach,” said Dymon Farrer, Bay Hill production manager for the Shipshewana, Ind.-based manufacturer. Indeed, Bay Hill has little touches that aren’t usually seen in fifth-wheels that retail in the $58,000 range, such as mosaic glass chandeliers, standard fireplaces in all but one floorplan and cabinets with black glass inlays. The 385BH offers opposing rear-bedroom slideouts along with slides in the living room, kitchen and front bedroom. Other features on the welded aluminum-and-fiberglass Bay Hill include large pass through storage with slam-latch doors, frameless deep-tinted windows, electric awning, six-point auto leveling system, LED lighting throughout, residential style furniture, and Martha Stuart Corian countertops. Also at the Louisville Show EverGreen showed a new Ascend lightweight 17- to 23-foot travel trailer with MSRPs starting at $18,000 and an affordable Sun Valley travel trailer series with a welded-aluminum frame and a base price beginning at $19,900.
