Syracuse, Indiana-based Travel Lite RV entered the full-size towable RV market with the launch of its 2020 EVOKE travel trailer line.
The EVOKE has private jet-inspired interiors wrapped in sleek and stealthy exteriors.
About 100 representatives from dealers around the country left the First Annual Travel Lite Open House Week Kickoff last Sunday (September 23, 2018) gushing with praise for the manufacturer’s new Evoke full-size travel trailer, according to a company news release.
Evoke set the bar high for the first trailer to be unveiled at Open House. The trailer bears little resemblance to anything on the market. From the three matte exterior finishes to the curved interior cabinetry and exclusive Duralux vinyl flooring and true king-size bed, Evoke can easily be called the travel trailer for the next generation.
“I call it New York City apartment chic,” said Travel Lite President Dustin Johns.
Earlier in the evening, the dealers at the exclusive, invitation-only event got a tour of Travel Lite’s new production facility near the intersection of County Roads 6 and 13.
After the tour of the factory, the dealers were invited to Johns’ house for entertainment and steak and lobster dinner where the Evoke was unveiled. VIP guests were welcomed to a full bar in his private exhibition garage.
Johns plans to make this an annual event.
Johns said it was important for the dealers to see not only the expanded size of the factory (now 60,000 square feet), but also to see that there is additional acreage next to the new facility for additional expansion if dealers see the value in Travel Lite’s new products and increase demand for the products.
“This is the culmination of 20 years,” he said.
“My dad took it from one level to another and we’ve taken it to a whole other level now. This product is just one more step—a huge leap—in the right direction. Anybody who knows me knows that I don’t like to play it safe. But I’m not going to play it stupid, either. This is an educated step.”
The Evoke is currently available in four floor plans—Model B, Model C, Model L, and Model T.
Johns also promised that there will be an Evoke line of fifth wheels debuting in March.
In addition to the Evoke, new models of the Aura, Falcon, and F-Lite as well as Travel Lite campers were on display.
The 2019 Aura travel trailers are available in nine models ranging in exterior length from 19 feet 10 inches (A-20) to 30 feet 7 inches (A-31BHK).
The 2019 Falcon travel trailers are available in nine models ranging in length from 19 feet 10 inches (F-20) to 30 feet 7 inches (F-31BHK) and a GVWR from 3,820 pounds to 7,765 pounds. All models feature a 5 cu. ft refrigerator, 2-burner stovetop with range hood, 20K BTU furnace, 13.5K air conditioner, 31-gallon fresh water tank, 30-gallon black/grey combo tank (bath sink and toilet), and 30-gallon grey tank (kitchen sink and shower).
The Falcon F-Lite travel trailer line is available in three models ranging in length from 13 feet 5 inches (FL-14) to 18 feet 2 inches (FL-18RB) and a GVWR from 3,680 pounds to 3,745 pounds.
