Default EverGreen Recreational Vehicles

EverGreen Recreational Vehicles
http://www.goevergreenrv.com/page/376/Imperial

I'm not sure if the EverGreen Imperial 245WS & 245TS are wide-body Class B's like the Roadtrek 210 or Pleasure-Way Excel or if they are technically small Class C's like the older Roadtrek 200 built on a cab & chassis platform. They sure look like a Class B though and that the market space they'll be competing in.

Looks like a small C. No sliding door, no rear doors. Could be wrong of course. Very nice at first look.

There is a dealer just down the road from us about 30 miles, so we should be able to check them out when they get them.

Nice lines to the van but that's about it. A few things missing for us.

It appears as if the fiberglass body adds about 8 inches to the overall width of the Sprinter which would make it about 7'-6" wide. I can't see where they took much advantage of that width and the two floor plans are nothing special. The body lines are pretty nice, but that decaling is dated for the small Class C category. It would look great in a two tone color of black and dark grey. The specs seem to be nothing special or innovative. What would be the incentive to buy this RV? I don't see it other than its looks.

A few items stand out.

USB charging ports at all seating stations
Cockpit floor mat for water retention
Auxiliary start switch
Energy management system with monitor
TV/satellite/HDMI connections

Optional Diesel generator

I'd like to see things like multiple USB charging ports standard in all new Class B's. I like the idea of an automotive type front floor mat for the whole cockpit.

We had a one piece floormat made for our 07 C190P that covers the entire area from the drop floor to the firewall. You just make a paper template and send it in, and they make it that exact shape. I goes around the seats, not under them. It is automotive carpet mat material, not the rubber water holding type that I think is on the Evergreen. I drive in stocking feet most of the time, so the rubber ones wouldn't be very comfortable for me.

The USB charging ports at all seats is a nice touch but the two cab seats already have charge access on the dash with two ports and I would never have that third seat. So it is moot for me. That is a feature Midwest Automotive Designs includes with their B. BTW. We are getting USB ports with our beds in our Advanced RV on both sides of the B. That to us is more important than at the seats. The last things we probably would do is charge our iPhones at night after checking email, weather and time on them, or setting the alarm clock.

I'm not sure what a cockpit floor mat for water retention is other than maybe one of those deep-ribbed mats that are pretty much a standard after market item in Minnesota for trapping melting snow. As for whole cockpit, I have never seen such an animal for a Sprinter cab and I doubt that was what was meant. As Booster mentions there are full cockpit carpet mats available.

What is the auxiliary start switch?

The satellite TV is definitely unusual for a standard item. Would that entail a dome on the roof? The exterior photo shows nothing on the roof including air conditioning. Also, no awning. Will final delivery look a bit different than the sleek view presented?

The Onan propane generator was the lowest ground clearance item on my GWVan. I thought the available diesel generators were deeper yet. Can anyone verify that? If so, I don't think I would entertain that option especially if I already had propane on board. Diesel generators might become more popular with the hiked up 4x4 Sprinters.

If there are no back doors like the vans, it is going to limit the capabilities of the outdoor active toy users. It is difficult to determine how the backend space shown on both models is proposed to be used.

As I mentioned, most everything else is decade old "old school" amenities or less like the 4 gal. propane water heater. It kind of reminds me of the Coach House Arriva effort of too little too late in the market of going to campgrounds and plugging in like the Class As. Roadtrek is setting a standard for the mass dealer market with its Etrek model development for energy independence to complement the go anywhere touring that is going to force everyone else to get on the bandwagon. I'm on that bandwagon with Advanced RV but they only have a couple of dozen Bs on the road (or about two weeks of Roadtrek production.)

I think Auxiliary Start gives the capability to jump start the van if the chassis battery ever goes flat.

This unit looks familiar so I searched until I found the unit I remembered seeing online. It might be a Mauck2 body. http://www.mauck2.com/
If so, a rear door is possible and lots of built in storage.

I think you may be right it may be similar. Just saw this EverGreen Imperial in new issue of Motorhome Magazine Jan 2015. It states something about slide out storage trays running the length of the wheelbase. Also tanks F: 30, G: 27.5, B: 27.5. Motorhome is saying it's a B but looks more like a sleeker B+, they state it's 10 inches wider than average Sprinter. We really like it, love all the windows and bigger tank size, and sleeker appearance. The floor plan with the pull out bed, what is the back area, is it a large storage room with a door to the outside?? I really want to see good pics/video of the inside.
