Airstream Sport Versus Evergreen Element

Have you seen the new Evergreen Element? These trailers appear to be very well built. There's no wood, and they seem to be more reasonably priced. My only complaint is I'd prefer something a little shorter and lighter, like the Sport 22. Not sure how they tow, but they're arrow dynamic. So far I've heard no complaints. For whatever its worth, the manufacturer received an OEMs Earn RVDA’s Quality Circle Award......

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder - I kind of like it - sort of a Jetsons look. Got to love that interior. The dinette/couch is calling out to me "nap here, nap here."

Cold Weather Trailers: Their Future in Near

Have you seen the new Evergreen Element?

I noticed they offer heated water tanks (as an option), as do a couple other manufacturers. I believe it is a trend that will only grow as makers recognize the need for either extended use or even year round use, cold weather not withstanding. With technology and materials available now there is little excuse for not making trailers winter useable.

Gook looking trailer. You should get what you want and are comfortable with. Since we love the WBCCI caravans and unit rallies I only want an Airstream. Old Airstreams are ugly to many people also, but are what I like seeing sitting in the driveway. There probably are better built trailers out there, particulary for cold or hot weather use. But the Airstream is a bit of a proven design and holds up for the long haul. I try to stay away from extreme heat or cold anyway.

You could buy a really nice used Airstream for what they are asking for the Evergreen.
10 years from now the Airstream will still be looking good.

Looks well done.Unfortunately the company is relatively new.
I woul hate to pay $40,000 to be a guinea pig and hope that everything turns out for the best.

Beautiful interior and really like the exterior paint scheme. The nose styling is okay with me though it really looks like it cuts into the awning footprint.

I think it's a beautiful trailer, inside and out.

Who's to say Airstream is a better trailer? Assumming they're equal, why would I buy a used Airstream for the same price as a new Evergreen?

Ir doesn't look like the windows open. It seems to use a cartridge blackwater system. I like the electric awning.
