EverGreen Amped Toy Hauler
The 2014 Amped toy hauler from EverGreen Recreational Vehicles employs an innovative frame that is set above the axles so that wheel wells don’t take up room in the interior, and it has a step-up forward bedroom.
The design of the frame offers extra ground clearance for off-road travel and also permits a vast amount of pass-through basement storage.
With no interior wheel wells in the way, there is a lot of space to load ATVs, motorcycles or other recreational vehicles and equipment. To make loading and unloading easy, the Amped has a standard beavertail and eight-foot ramp with a 3,000-pound rating. D-ring tie downs are bolted to the frame.
The forward bedroom has a queen bed with storage underneath and also has two large wardrobes with drawers. The design is intended to provide all the storage of a fifth-wheel in an easy-to-handle travel trailer.
The Amped is built on an aluminum structure with vacuum-laminated ComposiTek interior walls to resist moisture, rot and mildew, and keep weight low. The floors have marine-grade plywood decking, and there is a high-gloss fiberglass gel coat finish. The Amped is available in five floor plans, from 22 to 32 feet.

The Villagio, a new Class C luxury motorhome from Renegade RV, is built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis and takes its inspiration from upscale yachts, with luxury features built into a compact-sized coach.
Stainless steel accents, bonded leather upholstery and European-style cabinets give the Villagio a distinctive look. “The Villagio is a great motorhome for young families or retired couples that want a smaller, more maneuverable coach without giving up high-end amenities,” said Stacey Miller, the company’s Sprinter product manager.
The Villagio is available in two floor plans: 24RBS, which features a rear corner bed and a nine-foot slideout containing a jackknife sofa and wardrobe/pantry, and 25TBS, which features rear twin beds that can be converted to a large single bed and includes a slideout with a sofa.

The Adventurer and Suncruiser have Ultraleather furniture, MCD solar/blackout roller shades, Corian galley countertops and sink covers, a color rearview monitor system, and a powered patio awning with integrated LED patio lighting. There are also LED ceiling lights, which save on energy consumption and extend battery life when dry camping.

The mid-coach galley has an island sink and a residential refrigerator with interior water and ice dispenser and a glide-out bottom freezer drawer. The dining table can be extended to accommodate additional seating. A cross-aisle split bath places a toilet and sink on one side and shower and second sink on the other so that two people can get ready for the day at the same time. The bedroom slideout can be equipped with either a king or queen bed, with an Ideal Rest Digital Comfort mattress. The bedroom includes a large TV and lots of wardrobe and storage space.
Suggested retail prices range from $153,465 to $182,525. For information, visit winnebagoind.com.
