Ember Recreational Vehicles on Monday unveiled its new luxury lightweight laminated travel trailer product line, Touring Edition, to dealers at Elkhart Extravaganza.
The Touring Edition features 10 floorplans from 26 to 34 feet long, with bunkhouses and couples’ coaches. The Touring Edition travel trailers are built on a specialty drop-frame chassis featuring over 40 cubic feet of front pass-through storage and Ember’s exclusive Versa Coupler hitching system. The trailers ride on Dexter torsion axles with 16-inch Goodyear Endurance LRE tires with standard TPMS.
Touring Edition uses composite materials with no wood in floor and exterior wall construction. Touring Edition uses Ember’s Evermore proprietary composite seamless floor. For its exterior walls, the Touring Edition features the same fully composite laminated aluminum-framed construction with double-sided Azdel Onboard paneling.
“When we set out to create the Touring Edition, not only were we listening to what customers were asking for, but we again put an emphasis on building with higher quality materials, better components, and designing a camping-correct RV, which is what our customers deserve,” said Chris Barth, Ember founder, COO and head of product development. “Our team did not shy away from one-upping the competition, challenging the status quo, or making a mark on the segment we are entering. Touring Edition once again proves what hard work, determination, and innovation can do.”
The Touring Edition includes European caravan windows used in the Ember Overland Series. The dual-pane acrylic windows have integrated shades and screens that open wide. The Stargazer Skylight from the Overland Series is in every Touring Edition floorplan.
Ember added 55-gallon freshwater tanks, dual 200-Watt Go Power! solar panels, a 30-amp MPPT solar controller and a 2,000-watt pure sine wave inverter.
An optional 270-amp-hour Battle Born LiFePO4 “Gamechanger” battery is available from the factory and each RV is controlled via Bluetooth using Emberlink, Ember’s smart RV control system.
The kitchen comes includes a 12-volt refrigerator, microwave oven, three-burner cooktop, 21-inch oven with pots and pans drawer, seamless countertops, subway-tile backsplash, soft-close drawers and a large double-basin stainless steel sink.
The bedroom features a walk-around residential-sized queen bed with USB and 120-volt power access and LED lighting on each side. Touring Edition has a dual-ducted, 15,000 BTU roof-mounted air conditioner and a 30,000 BTU furnace.
Options on the Touring Edition include CUB’s dual-radar Lane Change Assist (LCA) System, providing visual assistance to the tow vehicle driver in making safer lane changes. Ember is the first RV manufacturer to partner with CUB in offering LCA from the factory.
Customers can add an electric fireplace, a second ducted 15,000 BTU roof-mounted air conditioner, an outside griddle and a wireless side and rear observation camera system with monitor.
“We are proud and excited to introduce our newest addition to our product offerings with the Touring Edition,” said Ashley Bontrager, founder, CEO and president of Ember. “The team has worked extremely hard the last several months to get to today. The day that we can show our current and future dealer partners what we are capable of and where we are going next after launching our award-winning, market-disrupting Overland Series last year. My goal when starting Ember last year was to build a company that I would want to work for, that I would want to do business with, and that I would want to buy from. All the decisions I have made in guiding Ember throughout the last year have run through at least one of those three filters. I think dealers and customers alike will find that Touring Edition is just another example of the team’s focus and how Ember has set out to do something different, always striving to find ways to do and be better.”
In addition to introducing the Touring Edition, Ember is hosting current and future dealers at its Expo at its campground on its premises by invitation only. Ember will display some of its newest Overland Series models including the 191MSL, 201FBQ, 221MDB, ROK and the never-seen-before 221MSL.
