The Evoque Diesel Pusher enters the market as the industry’s lowest-priced Raised Rail, Big Block 360 Cummins Engine, with price set at about $229,000.
“One-hundred percent of of NeXus units go through a ‘Camping Simulation’,” said Mike Peterson, vice-president of sales for the Class A Division at NeXus RV. “This is a 6-hour process of making sure all systems are working on a generator and shore power, full plumbing test (gas and water), drive and rain test. We do this to ensure the unit is in proper working condition before the dealer receives it.”
