“With the industry leaning towards repeating the same look over and over again, year after year, our EVOKE comes at a time when dealers and their retail clients are demanding more from the RV industry,” said Dustin Johns, president of Travel Lite RV.

“The EVOKE is an industry first when it comes to design and functionality,” he said. “It’s still the lightweight unit you would expect from TLRV because we are willing to make an investment on lighter yet stronger materials. But it will definitely have the widest wheelbase in the industry for providing more interior space on a more stable towing platform.”

The EVOKE comes as Travel Lite RV is getting ready to move into a newly built 60,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Syracuse, Indiana.

EVOKE full-sized travel trailer features European-style cabinets, new innovative floor plans and an open feel inside.

“Dealers should understand that the EVOKE will be ready to sell as soon as they hit the lot because each goes through our stringent Travel Lite RV Pre-delivery Inspection (PDI) before it ships,” Johns said.
