The Element - New Trailer

Friend sent me this, thought I'd share. Manufactured in U.S.A.

Not an egg, but no wood in the structure either.

Yeow! I just reread my friends e-mail. $53,908 USD MSRP

I could nearly buy TWO Escape 5th wheels for that.

Nice but out of my price range.

Sounds like they're going to fight it out with the Airstreams in the higher-priced market. They claim it weighs 3300 pounds but I imagine that's totally stripped and with all the tanks empty. Ah well, there's always someone somewhere who thinks they can build a better trailer. And very few of them succeed.

The trailer is good looking.

It's surprising that such a large, pricey, trailer has a cartridge toilet and a wet bath. I believe most people with this kind of budget would expect more in a bathroom.

I just saw one like the brown trailer here in Sonora, CA. I went back with my camera and it was gone. It wasn't an element and I can't recall what the name was.

I toured one at the Tampa RV show. Very impressive. Excellent design and implementation, and no wood.... anywhere. Even the bed platform was a composite material.
The show special price was much, much lower than the posted price.
As far as the marine bath and cassette toilet, very European, and actually practical. Too many trailer designers devote a lot of square footage to space rarely used. I think smaller bathrooms and bigger sleeping/living areas make more sense.
I'm really impressed with Evergreen products, though I was surprised at the price tag on this one. Other models are more mainstream priced.

That's a nice website, too. But, I would be a little concerned about a frame that's all bolted and screwed together with slots and grooves and tabs. Give me a good, strong weld any day!

Quote:
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 groves to provide a stronger, lighter weight chassis.
Regards,

Matt

Interlocking groves???
