EverGreen RV LLC - Element Travel Trailer

Terry Bradshaw and the EverGreen Green Team Unveil the Game Changing 2012 Element Travel Trailer at the 48th Annual Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) Show in Louisville, Kentucky, November 30, 2010

New Element Travel Trailer is a Fusion of Classic American Automotive Design and Aerodynamic Euro-inspired Camping Trailers

Louisville, KY- EverGreen Recreational Vehicles, LLC. Evergreen Recreational Vehicles LLC, the leading innovator in eco-friendly, sustainable all-composite travel trailers and fifth wheels, is proud to announce the unveiling of the next generation of American made, cutting edge recreational vehicles with its new Element product line.

The revolutionary Element line of travel trailers was unveiled to the media and the public at an event with spokesman Terry Bradshaw and the management team of EverGreen Recreational Vehicles on the morning of November 30, 2010, at the 48th Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) Show in Louisville, Kentucky.

Unitized Body Construction Replaces Antiquated Framing

The departure of the Element from conventional recreational vehicles begins from the ground up. The Element frame is a highly engineered automotive-style chassis designed to be lightweight and extremely durable.

The AFT (Advanced Fulcrum Tracking) axle system provides balanced stability and true tracking on the road. This is possible through the use of lightweight composites and aluminum to reduce the tongue weight.

The durable, lightweight frame is engineered from automotive, High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steel that yields the highest strength-to-weight ratio. The frame incorporates little to no welding that can crack or separate. Instead, Element frame components are secured with an intricate system of bolts and interlocking grooves to provide a stronger, lighter weight chassis. All frame components are protected with an automotive quality, electro-coating process that coats 100 percent of the frame to retard rust and corrosion.

The Element of Inspiration-A Fresh New Design

The Element is a fusion of styles between classic American automotive design and the latest in aerodynamic, European-inspired camping trailers. Built to be both environmentally friendly and stylish, the new Element is also built tough with EverGreen's ComposiTek™construction to last a lifetime.

Totally wood free, the Element is ultra resistant to rot, mold or mildew that mark the demise of most RVs. Sustainable composites make the Element eco-friendly and recyclable.

European styled windows are crafted of tinted acrylic to provide energy efficiency and privacy. The interior appointments of the Element are clean, functional and ready for the rigors of today's most active family. Interior height is a surprising 84 inches.

Unitized-Body, ComposiTek™ Construction

The unitized-body construction of the Element is much like nature's exoskeleton. Lightweight, all-composite, panelized components fit tightly together and are then fused and fastened to form a one-piece outer perimeter shell that is stronger and more aerodynamic than conventionally built trailers.

All sustainable composite shell materials are impervious to moisture to eliminate rot, mold and mildew inherent with wood products. Durable composites, fiberglass and aluminum are engineered into a unitized body to enhance the strength of the entire unit as a whole.

The seamless ComposiTek™ floor is vacuum laminated and secured to the chassis to support the walls and roof panels. Seamless, vacuum-bonded components have a heavy gauge welded aluminum frame for added strength.

Aerodynamic and Lightweight for Easy Towing and Improved Performance

Weighing in at an approximate base of 3,300 pounds, the new 24 foot Element series can be towed by today's mini vans or mid-sized SUVs. The ultra aerodynamic exterior of the Element is designed for improved fuel economy and straight tracking down the road. Advanced Fulcrum Tracking (AFT) is designed to reduce sway while towing.

The Element is one of the few travel trailers on the market to meet the 60 square feet "frontal area towing requirements" of the OEM automotive manufacturers. Defined as the total area of the trailer that is exposed to air resistance, the Element does not exceed 60 square feet-thus far exceeding the aerodynamic performance of conventional RVs. Conventional RVs exceed this limitation, significantly reducing the performance of tow vehicles.

Every EverGreen Element product is quality tested with a rigorous 100-point inspection program. The Element is built with the extensive EverGreen Warranty: Three (3) year limited structural, Two (2) year bumper-to-bumper warranty.
