Prior to our decision to purchase an Evergreen element, we looked at the Earthbound Dillon (Earthbound has since gone out of business) and an Airstream Flying Cloud 25FB. While the Airstream is very nice, it was approximately $10,000 more than our Element, an additional 1,000 pounds heavier, and wider with no slide-out.
We have had a few minor issues with our Element, and all were repaired under warranty by Evergreen. The service we've received from Evergreen was / is far better than any other RV we've owned. I would NOT hesitate purchasing another Evergreen product.
We did experience a leaking roof which seems to be a bit problematic with the Elements, however, once re-caulked, we've not had a problem.
The Atwood furnace went out, but that was an Atwood issue, not an Evergreen issue.
Had a loose A/C which was easily repaired (self-help). I'm guessing we been on to many bumpy roads and it just loosened up. Took about a half hour to tighten up the bolts. We did not experience any water leak from the A/C unit when we discovered it wasn't tight.
Lastly, an issue with the day / night shades which was easily repaired by the supplier sending a repair kit and detailed instructions.
I hope this addresses your concerns. Please let me know if you have any specific questions.
What year & model Element are you considering???
