EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC announced the expansion of its production capabilities with a third manufacturing facility at its campus in Middlebury, Ind., to support the growing demand for the company’s products.
According to a press release, the new production facility was initiated by the company in response to dealer demand for quicker replenishment of EverGreen products in the United States and Canada. The new facility is projected to create 35 new jobs supporting the economic growth of the region.
“In just over one year the EverGreen family of brands has grown in sales over 70% from the previous year,” stated EverGreen President and COO Mark Boessler. “This significant growth has fueled the need for our manufacturing expansion into a third facility. But more importantly, this continuous expansion is the result of our original goal, set by our founders Kelly Rose and Mike Schoeffler, to build unique brands of recreational vehicles that stand alone on their own merits and are never cloned into duplicate brands sold against our own dealers.”
Boessler explained that EverGreen’s products and brands have grown dramatically over the past two years and now include not only the original Ever-Lite, but the i-Go Lite, Ascend, Sun Valley, Bay Hill fifth-wheels, Amped toy haulers and the full line of Lifestyle Luxury Recreational Vehicles.
“EverGreen brands stand alone and can be sold by any dealer wishing to appeal to a specific market niche without the worry of a duplicate dealership cutting into his business across town,” said Boessler, stressing the company’s “no-clone” strategy. “This is why we will continue this great run.”
Boessler alluded to more brands in the works. “We’ve had a great year so far with growth in all segments of the market and phenomenal response to all our product and floor plan introductions,” he said. “We look forward to the Dealer Open House this year with at least 50 units on display – double from last year. We will have our new Amped toy haulers in full force and some new, hot selling, very unique brands we will be offering existing and new EverGreen dealers.”
Middlebury, Ind.-based EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC announced it is breaking into the fifth-wheel toy hauler market with its new line of Tesla products. According to a press release, the new Tesla debuted last week at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa.
Tesla features EverGreen’s signature vacuum laminated construction and offers a combination of the luxury appointments of the company’s Bay Hill fifth-wheel and the utility features of the Amped travel trailer toy hauler that was introduced in June.
“The new Tesla toy haulers are designed to go head-to-head with the major toy hauler fifth-wheels in the market today,” said President and COO Mark Boessler. “The incredible success of our new Amped toy hauler travel trailer is paving the way for the successful launch of our new Tesla fifth-wheels.”
The first major dealer showing of the new EverGreen Tesla fifth-wheel toy hauler will take place this week at the annual Elkhart County RV Open House.
