Lifestyle Luxury RV Reports Strong Retail Sales

July 30, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

High-end fifth-wheel builder Lifestyle Luxury RV, a division of EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC, announced that based on consumer vehicle registrations of fifth-wheels sold at dealerships coast-to-coast, over 40% of the company’s units have been sold since the brand was founded in February of 2012.

“These are phenomenal total retail numbers for the sale of a single-branded product from just 18 months of its launch,” said Dymon Farrer, general manager of the Middlebury, Ind.-based builder, in a press release. “In my previous life as a full-time sales representative, I was happy to have a brand retail 15% to 20% off sales lots in one year. We are extremely pleased with the consumer response to the Lifestyle Luxury RV fifth-wheels and so are our dealers.”

Lifestyle said that its lineup gained early recognigion at last year’s Louisville Show, included among RVBusiness Magazine’s Top RV Debuts for 2013 and RV Pro Magazine’s Best of Show for 2013. Since that time, the company has steadily grown its dealer base across the country.

Bucky Moree, president of the National Carriage Travel Club, recently stated his groups’ dedication to the legacy Lifestyle Luxury RV brand.

“The members of the Carriage Travel Club are enthusiastic about the upcoming one year anniversary of our affiliation with Lifestyle Luxury RV,” he said. “This relationship has greatly benefited both the travel club and Lifestyle Luxury RV. Our members are very appreciative of Lifestyle’s commitment to quality and design.

“A number of our members have purchased new Lifestyle fifth-wheels to replace their older model Carriage trailers and are extremely happy with the quality Lifestyle builds into each of their luxury units. We, as potential new customers, are excited to learn Lifestyle is continuing to improve their floorplans and launch new products in the near future.”

Family owned La Mesa RV, with 12 dealerships nationwide in the states of California, New Mexico, Arizona and Florida, is having great success selling Lifestyle’s fifth-wheels.

“The Lifestyle brand is doing well,” said Jason Kimbrell, head of towable sales. “Certain categories have exceeded expectations. I don’t think anyone thought there was the market for high-end fifth-wheels like the Lifestyle.”

He added, “It’s just a really well-built product. Lifestyle offers some unique features that no one else in the industry has. The fact that Lifestyle manufacturers its own Titan chassis is key. This allows them to build full-wall slides, use Big Foot jacks, and include pass through storage in the rear of the unit-all uniquely designed by Lifestyle.”

Kimbrell spoke to the type of consumer purchasing Lifestyle. “This is definitely a niche product,” he said. “It’s almost exclusively retirees. And a very large percentage of these buyers are full-timers. They are living out of the Lifestyle 12 months out of the year or using it as primary vacation home. And they just don’t park them, they travel.

“We’ve been real happy with the product and the folks at EverGreen that build the Lifestyle. It’s a great company. They build a great product, they stand behind what they build. We are thrilled and honored to have the relationship we have with EverGreen.”

LIFESTYLE Partners With Carriage Travel Club

November 13, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Middlebury, Ind.-based LIFESTYLE Luxury RV, a division of EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC, announced today (Nov. 13) it has entered into a formal partnership with the Carriage Travel Club Inc. (CTC).

According to a press release, CTC is an independent owners’ club separate from former high-end fifth-wheel manufacturer Carriage Inc., and maintains an active, enthusiastic base of fifth-wheel owners. The group had been seeking a new fifth-wheel maker to partner with, and selected LIFESTYLE after a thorough, deliberate search and review process.

“After we had the opportunity to tour the LIFESTYLE Luxury RV facility and see the models in production, I had no doubt that this was the best engineered and designed fifth-wheel unit on the market, and that’s why I had no doubt that LIFESTYLE was the most logical partner for CTC,” Bucky Moree, president of the CTC, explained. “It’s clear LIFESTYLE has the entire DNA of what our members expect and want. LIFESTYLE has demonstrated to our membership that they care about what owners want, going so far as to implement certain ideas and recommended changes.”

He added, “It’s easy to see the commitment everyone at LIFESTYLE has to putting forth a quality-built product, which is why it’s clear to us that LIFESTYLE is supremely committed to designing fifth-wheels geared toward the unique and specific wants and needs of the market. This is, we expect, the beginning of a long and healthy partnership.”

In aligning with LIFESTYLE Luxury RV, the CTC and its members will support LIFESTYLE at several future industry and retail shows. In addition, LIFESTYLE will support the CTC and its members at its rallies and events, including its three national rallies it holds each year, including its Florida National rally and Texas National rally, both held in early spring, and the Grand National Rally, traditionally held in the Midwest in late summer or early fall.

“We are very excited about this relationship with the CTC and its wonderful membership,” said Greg Kitson, director of engineering and product development for LIFESTYLE Luxury RV. “For over 35 years, the CTC has provided its members a supportive, engaging, energetic forum in which they can gather and share their common interests and celebrate their love of luxury fifth-wheel living. We are honored that, after their exhaustive search, they chose LIFESTYLE as their new fifth-wheel representative. It’s a relationship we take seriously and a partnership we look forward to developing and building for years to come.”

The Carriage Travel Club was founded in 1976 by a small group of Carriage fifth-wheel owners with the goal of promoting “good fellowship and camaraderie for owners of Carriage trailer products.” In addition to the national chapter, there are more than 20 local CTC chapters located throughout the U.S. and Canada.

LIFESTYLE's rendering of its maiden fifth-wheel

LIFESTYLE Luxury RV, a newly formed luxury fifth-wheel manufacturer based in Middlebury, Ind., has released a series of 3D renderings in advance of the launch of the company’s first model.

“Our team has been working around the clock for a product debut that will have an immediate impact on the industry,” said Greg Kitson, lead design engineer for LIFESTYLE, who is among several key employees that previously worked for now defunct Carriage Inc. “We’re excited about the opportunity to share just a small part of what our team has been developing for the 2013 model year.”

Kitson said the absence of Carriage product has left a void in the luxury-fifth wheel segment, adding, “LIFESTYLE’s new product line will fill this void and raise expectations for this segment.” The company is a division of Middlebury-based EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC.

In addition to the unit renderings, an initial list of features and benefits can be seen at www.LifestyleLRV.com. The company said that those familiar with the luxury fifth-wheel segment will quickly recognize several design and construction amenities, including double-stacked box steel tube frames, the dual-floor basement and full-wall slide with an above-the-frame slideout system. Initial production is scheduled for March 2012.

“This is just the beginning,” stated Elliott Bond, LIFESTYLE national sales manager. “We’re very happy with the progress we’ve made to date. We’ve not deviated from our core principle to offer the premiere luxury fifth wheel in the market with high-quality, year-round construction. Several innovative enhancements to the product have been made that we feel will bring immediate value to our dealers and retail customers.”
