rv-pro.com September 2015 • RV PRo • 37 While Ditka is expected to be a strong draw, EverGreen believes it has plenty of other reasons for dealers to visit its exhibit at the Hall of Fame, with several new and revamped products and many more RVs on display than last year, according to Emahiser. Show hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 22, 23 and 24. In particular, EverGreen is touting the introduction of the Skyline Layton fifth wheel (previously the Layton was only available as a travel trailer). Emahiser says the Layton will have a distinctive exterior, which he describes as rustic or having a Restoration Hardware look to it. "People are either going to love it or hate it, and that's OK with us," he says. "It's going to be like nothing else in the industry." In addition to its distinctive look, the Layton will be notable for having outdoor kitchens across its floorplans, which will range from 32 to 39 feet. The MSRP for the Layton fifth wheels are expected to range from the mid-$40,000s to the low-$50,000s. Meanwhile, several other EverGreen products are getting refreshes. For example, the Ever-Lite – EverGreen's first product when the company launched six years ago – is getting a new look inside and out and will feature less composite material than pre- vious versions, according to Emahiser. Those changes will allow EverGreen to offer a towable that's still very content rich but at a lower price point (high-$20,000s to low-$30,000s), he notes. Likewise, EverGreen's Amped is also getting a revamp that reduces the travel trailer toy hauler's towing weight and price point but still keeps many of the features that have made it popular, such as the patio deck and large pass-through storage at the front of the coach. EverGreen officials haven't finalized tow weights yet, but Emahiser says the new Ampeds will be 3/4-ton or even half-ton towable. Additionally, dealers can expect to see changes to EverGreen's lightweight Reactor toy hauler, which debuted last year. Ema- hiser says the Reactor has proven to be a winner for EverGreen, so the changes are updates to existing models, such as adding slide-out options and updating the decors.
