Banbury,

Cannot address all of your issues withe the EVERGREEN but the crush gasket over the slide is a slide in peice and may have "slide" back
The shower surround is NOT attached at the bottom, there is a lip that keeps the water in. This gives the surround room to flex with the unit so they were not "detaching".
We purchased our unit last summer and put over 5,000 miles on it on one trip plus the winter trips. On April 20 we left La for Alaska and have close to 8,000 miles on the TT and have experienced NO problems.
Oh, on the first trip had to pull the fuse on the gas alarm and reinsert so that it would get re addressed and it has not had a malfunction since.
I am certain, that the warranty would have taken care of the counter top.
From the comments on the EVERGREEN list, that is NOT part of the company the vast majority are well satisfied with their units.

CCC

Our Experience only,

CCC

CCC, Glad yours has been trouble free. Sorry to have been unclear. What I saw is not what you are describing. I understand the wall construction of the tub surround. The walls were separating from the backer wall about 3' up. They were bubbled out about half an inch and you could slide your hand behind. The crush gasket tape baking was visible, it was attached to the top edge of the slide outside wall, it was not the flap gasket that is attached to the trailer slide opening. And the counter? The dealer told me they would wax it so you wouldn't see it, not a solution I would accept.

Sorry my first post on these forums upset you, and was unclear. Don't want to upset anyone. I'll go back to read only mode.

P B, no offence. Just want to clear up that NOT all units are as you describe.
The dealer is derelect in his duty in even showing a unit like that and should have straightened that before putting it on the lot.

Another EVERGREEN is in this park and there was another in Denali earlier this week.

Don't hold my feet to the fire, but I think the weight includes the options. I am interested in the 29RK. The brochure shows 5080 lbs. The unit at he dealer shows 5213 lbs.

That is the weight in the brochure is without options.

Check the Trailer Life towing guide. I just bought an '07 F150 Supercab 4x2 5.4L, auto, 3.55 rear end and 20" tires. It's rated at 8100 pounds towing cap.

Even better my owners manual rates it at 8100lbs and GCWR 13,500. Trailer Life rates it at 8600 lbs with no consideration for the 20" tires.

I am a newbie to this type of forum. Thanks for all the info. I have purchased an 2012 Everlite 27 RB when empty weighs 4500lbs; fully loaded up to 6100 lbs. I was wondering if an 2010 Ford F150; 3.73 rear axle, 5.4L engine w/tow package w/ a E Z lift w/ 750lbs bars, weight dist. hitch would be able to tow this trailer?

Also, I have towed with my Ford F150 a '08 Micro Lite Flagstaff 18FBR weighing 4200lbs fully loaded; truck scale: with no problems all over the USA.

When I retire in 3 years, my husband and I plan to go full time RV'ing. We bought the Everlight to do it in and we should have it paid for by that time.

Where do I join the Everlite Club or whatever it is called?

Thank you,
Ann

go to Yahoo! and there is a yahoo groups site. Once in the yahoo groups site search for Everlite and that should get you there.

We jsut bought the 29rk It has an amazing amount of storage and heated tanks. It is all composite exterior including walls and the only real wood on the interior is the cabinets. We had ordered an Earthbound but after 6 months of waiting with no sign of delivery cancelled the order and started looking again. We are very glad we did as we really like our choice and it was 1/2 the price!

Gumshoe, glad to see other EverGreen Ever~Lite Owners on this site we have a 2011 32MKS and we love it.
We have taken it from Ma. to N.H. to PA. and a lot of points in between and have our last trip planned for the end of this month.
We have found that it is well insulated where you don't need to crank the heat up or the A/C down to be comfortable as we have camped in the high 30's and in the low 90's and have had the thermostat set on auto with regular settings and all has very comfortable.
Enjoy and hope catch up with you at a campground somewhere.

Hi

Hi Folks,

We bought and had delivered a 27' 2012 Everlite. We are going on our first maiden voyage to the Cape Cod. Yippee! My husband and I will let you know about our everlite.
So far, we have been making modifications to our travel trailer. We put in pull chains, for the fans, you cannot reach, added a ladder, added folding tables for our counter tops, added more electrical outlets, and etc.

Glad to hear that the camper is warm. The campground we are going to is primitive. Let's see what happens!

Ann & Bill
