MIDDLEBURY, Ind., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EverGreen Recreational Vehicles, LLC announced that their Ever-Lite travel trailers were rated a "Best Buy" by Consumers Digest. The recommendation appears in the publication's June 2012 issue and online at www.consumersdigest.com. The publication is highly respected as a resource for information on buying a variety of products. 2012 marks 50 years of helping consumers "identify exceptional values in a complex and confusing marketplace."
"It is an incredible honor for us to be recognized as a 'Best Buy' by a publication as respected as Consumers Digest," said EverGreen CEO Michael Schoeffler. "This recognition by a major consumer publication further validates our mission of making the most lightweight, durable, and green travel trailers and fifth wheels on the market."
According to Consumers Digest, a Best Buy is a product that delivers exceptional value for a given amount of money and merits special attention from consumers based, in general, on its combination of eight criteria: performance, ease of use, features, quality of construction, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and service requirements. Best Buys in travel trailers, specifically, were selected based on quality of construction, features, use of space, durability and ease of towing.
EverGreen's use of durable, longer lasting, lightweight composite construction combined with vacuum lamination processes are featured prominently in the four-page review of the "Best Buys" for 2012 RVs in the June issue. Referring to the positive aspects of the RV industry coming out of tough economic times, Consumers Digest cited EverGreen's innovative use of composite materials as key: "One of the newest manufacturers (EverGreen) introduced lightweight fifth wheels and travel trailers that have shells and other components that are made out of composite materials." Consumers Digest also did its research on EverGreen's Ever-Lite products through interviews with experts and dealers in the field. "Independent composite material experts and RV service center experts whom we interviewed say EverGreen's claims hold, er…repel water," states Consumers Digest.
Dealers agreed with the service experts on the value of purchasing an RV built with composites. "Unchecked water damage can destroy a new trailer in a matter of months," said Jim Jussila of I-5 Uhlmann RV in Chehalis, Wash., who sells EverGreen and was interviewed for the Consumers Digest article. "An all-composite trailer has the potential to outlast a conventional trailer by decades."
