Video Transcript for “2015 Evergreen Bay Hill Fifth Wheel Features (Part 1 of 2)”
Laura: Hey, guys. You’re watching Pete’s RV TV. I’m Laura and this is Chad, and today we have a special treat. We’re taking you through the Bay Hill 295RL.
Chad: I guarantee you’re going to learn something today you’ve never learned before. We have factory backed help here to take us through this Bay Hill, top to bottom, inside and out. We’re going to go through it from one end to the other. First thing we noticed, the Bay Hill, beautiful. Painted front caps. We’ve got wide body construction. Things you’re not going to see in any of the other RVs. We’re excited to offer this Bay Hill product.
Laura: That’s true, Chad. Let’s head inside and meet up with Bryan Walczak. He’s our Bay Hill rep, and he’s going to explain to us all the really great features of the Bay Hill.
Hey, guys. Welcome inside. We’re here with our Bay Hill rep, Bryan Walczak, , and he’s here to explain some of the great features in here. The first thing you’ll notice when you step inside, how beautiful it is. They really go all out in this unit. He’s here to explain all the great things that they do.
Bryan, why don’t you start off by telling us some of the nice features in the kitchen, like with the cabinets?
Bryan: Absolutely. I mean, as you already know, Evergreen is getting more popular by the day in the industry for being more focused on our buying segment. Some of those things are evidenced here in our cabinets. When you look around any of the Bay Hill, as evidenced here in our 295RL, you’re going to see beautiful cabinets all lined up here. All of our hardwood cabinets feature the hidden hinges inside, all spring loaded, so they close automatically. Let me do that again real quick. Close automatically. Very, very unique features. Plus, all of our drawers feature the soft close feature, so once they’re open, then they close automatically. Very neat.
All of our countertops feature the Martha Stewart Collection countertop, which is one of the high end pieces. Plus, our dishwashers. Bay Hill is the only major manufactured fifth wheel that currently offers a dishwasher. Much easier to use.
Laura: That’s right. It’s a great feature.
Chad: So real quickly, Bryan. Bay Hill, it kicks butt in the market. Its been really a big seller for us. Its been [00:02:00] a huge step up for people who have Montana’s, or people who have a Big Horn, or someone who’s looking to upgrade their current fifth wheel, brand new. My favorite thing about it, it’s a wide body coach. Tell us a little about it. We got 100 inches wide.
Bryan: That’s right.
Chad: I mean, that’s, that’s revolutionary in the industry.
Bryan: That’s right.
Chad: Tell us what, what does that give you?
Bryan: Well, everybody’s looking for more space. Now with bigger highways, bigger trucks, we now have the ability to offer larger coaches also. And our coach is 100 inches wide, which is one of the largest on the market, bigger than any major manufactured coach. What’s that going to do is give you wider hallways, over 30 inches of passage room space, larger bathrooms, and of course, larger living areas. When you own a Bay Hill, you’ve got more space.
Chad: Without a doubt. Without a doubt. Now it also gives us taller slide heights.
Chad: I see a lot of, lot of cool stuff that this offers, without a doubt.
Laura: Bryan, you mentioned that we have Martha Stewart countertops here. Can you also tell us some of the other great brands that you guys use?
Bryan: Absolutely. Everything that we use in a Bay Hill’s going to be recognized. First you’re going to find Sharp microwaves. Of course, you’re going to find Norcold refrigerators. You’re going to find flooring that’s Armstrong flooring. You’re going to find Lauren Ashley furniture, and a plethora of other well-known brands throughout the coach.
Chad: Talk a little bit, too. When we talk about the Bay Hill, that’s one thing that strikes me. We have Shaw carpeting, Armstrong flooring, Martha Stewart Collection, Coreon. Just goes the extra mile. We talk about those steps up. It’s home style furniture in this RV.
Bryan: It, it is unique. And one of the things that I was told is the Bay Hill’s are 100% better, because we’re 1% better at 100 different things.
Chad: And people don’t realize, Bay Hill is a fairly small company. I mean, you guys aren’t running 20 or 30 of these down the line a day.
Chad: So the quality, attention to detail, and I’m assuming this is built in Elkart, Indiana.
Bryan: Actually, no. We’re built in Middlebury.
Bryan: Right in the Amish capitol there. Our average production worker at Evergreen RV, they’ve been working in their teams, in their groups, for well over 20 years. They were building products even before Evergreen came together. So these guys are happy. And if you can have happy people, working at building better product, it’s going to make our customers and our dealers happy.
Chad: Without a doubt. Without a doubt. Couple [00:04:00] things I want to touch upon before we go to the outside. There are a lot of cool features. We’re going to go up and check out the bedroom, too. Laura was in here. We came and checked this out before the video. One thing she pointed out was, check the depth of the sinks, and it sounds kind of, you know, nit picking. But when we get into this level, we are nit picking.
Bryan: Mm hmm (positive).
Chad: Stainless steel sinks.
Bryan: All under mounted. All the sinks are under mounted. And you notice there’s a lot of extra sill. All the sill is neatly all around there. We don’t want to have any leaks in around our, around our sinks. Plus, all of our high rise faucets. Everything is nickel plated or stainless steel. It’s got the pull-out style. It’s got the spray end here also, very easy, very easy to use, and hot and cold feature here on the outside.
Chad: Laura, then when you were mentioning earlier too, the sleeping capacity. So this is the smallest unit. We’re at 34 feet is it?
Bryan: This is actually 34 foot 6 inches long, and it’s got all the features of our larger models packed into this 34 footer.
Chad: So over here we have the lounge recliners?
Bryan: Yeah. This is our Lauren Ashley furniture. Each of these are a theater-style seat. Right here, what we have are three independent components. So if in the future, if your customer wanted to combine them, hook them, attach them together. It’s got storage here inside, in the middle, again on the hidden hinges. Plus, there’s levers here, which allow it to recline. You’re going to find all of our furniture in the Bay Hill has a top stitch, and in some cases, depending on the décor fabric, double top stitch, to double accent exactly what’s going on with the furniture.
Chad: You got it. Without a doubt. And it gives it a great look.
Laura: Bryan, one of my favorite things about the Bay Hill is the fireplace. Could you tell us a little bit about that?
Bryan: Well, again, Bay Hill comes with more standard features than any other fifth wheel. So fireplaces do come standard, along with the leveling system also. The fireplaces are great, because they do put out heat, over 5,000 BTUs worth of heat. There should be a remote that, that’s included with it. Plus you have the larger TVs. So when you look at the entertainment center on a Bay Hill, you’re going to find largest in class, bigger TVs, bigger fireplace.
Chad: Tell us a little bit about shades. I mean, we, we talk about upgraded features. Shades. This has roller shades in ‘em.
Chad: But it’s not the standard roller shade that you found, [00:06:00] like, at your home in the spare room.
Bryan: No. No, no. This is actually an upgrade. And what we’re offering is the MCD natural upgrade. This is a complete blackout shade. Okay? This is referred to as a solo shade. The idea is it can keep the heat down. Really, definitely keep the light out. But, , with the 80% tinted windows that are frameless on the outside, it keeps a lot of the heat out, but this is just an added measure.
Laura: This unit also comes with a free-standing dinette. Only the two chairs are shown now, but it comes with four chairs. Is that right?
Bryan: Yeah. Every coach should come with two chairs. There’s two additional folding chairs. Because it’s a couple’s model, we want to focus on having two people put together. Okay? But if you have guests, we understand that, and the folding chairs pack away neatly.
Chad: And Bay Hill does make a bunk model. And we talk about high ends, even the Montana doesn’t make a bunk model, and then our high end fifth wheel Bighorn the same way. This, they make a true bunk model, with the high end features, with the extra sleeping capacity.
Bryan: Absolutely. And that’s called our 385BH. Our 385BH is quickly becoming one of the top performers on the market. For years, people have bought entry level or mid level fifth wheels, and have a natural upgrade into the Bay Hill 385.
Chad: Okay. So this video’s not too, too long, we’re just going to do some rapid R factors on this. Bryan, tell us a little bit.
Chad: This is high end coach, full, full-time living. I mean, this has got some nice stuff in it.
Bryan: This is an all-weather coach. It’s made for full-time living. R-38 on the roof and floor. Side walls, floor, even the end walls, rear and the slide-in walls, all vacuum laminated. That makes it the best-insulated, best-constructed coach on the market. Triple insulated roof, double batten fiberglass, plus all the extra R-40 flex foil.
Chad: Tell me a little bit. Heated enclosed underbelly.
Bryan: Heated. It’s a basically infrared radiant-type system throughout the underbelly that allows it to heat evenly, not a ducted heat, which just blows air and doesn’t have a return.
Chad: Two options for hot water.
Bryan: That is correct. Our standard is a 10-gallon Atwood water heater, but now we feature the all new Atwood on-demand tankless system. It’s a completely new system on the market. It’s unlimited hot water. I have it in, in my rigs, and I, and I wouldn’t be without it.
Chad: Lighting? [00:08:00] Tell us a little bit about the lighting.
Bryan: Everything is LED. Okay?
Chad: Lights above your head over there.
Bryan: Absolutely. These, these are all LED throughout. Okay? All the LEDs are recessed into the ceiling, and even into the, , the slide rooms here. LED lights use next to no amps. They’re very, very little. And they put out no heat. So on a hot day, of course, like today, it’s not going to make it too hot inside.
Chad: You got it. So, from, we’ll have Laura show us the front bedroom in here. They can do a new position with the camera, and then we’re going to go around the outside real quick.
Chad: And touch up on any, when people see the Bay Hill on the outside it’s beautiful, something that people don’t forget. So we want to make sure we do a good job on that as well. So, let’s take a minute and we’ll jump outside. Laura can finish up the bedroom and the bathroom here in the front.
Laura: Hey, guys. Laura here again. I’m going to show you the bathroom and the bedroom in this Bay Hill. Okay. We’re in the 295RL. Bathroom, over here, it’s nice, a big nice size. The shower, this is one of my favorite things. It’s huge, lots of room. This thing is seamless. It’s so big that they put this in the unit before they’re even finished building it. There’s a nice three-door shower, so it gives you lots of room to get in. Look at all this wide space that you can to get in. You have a porcelain foot flush toilet, which is nice, and then right behind the door, which you can’t really see, is the vanity. We have a power vent fan in here, as well as a skylight for that extra light in here. There are no windows, so that skylight is great. Adds a lot of light.
I’m going to just squeeze by you into the bedroom. Nice big room up here. We have the option of a king or a queen bed. This is a king size bed. But you do have the options for a queen. They were talking before about the great brands that we have in the Bay Hill, and you’ll see this is a Black Label mattress. It’s a pillow top, very comfy. When you buy the RV, you’re not going to immediately think, “Oh, I have to change the mattress.” This comes, you’re going to love it. It’s very comfortable, just like all of the Bay Hill you’ll see. The slide is going to have windows on both sides for that cross ventilation, which is great up here. It’s going to keep you extra cool. We have the AC. These turn as well as shut, which is nice.
And the best thing about the Bay Hill is the two [00:10:00] closets. I don’t know if you can see back here, but we have washer dryer hookups back here, and then over here is the sliding closet, which we have even more room back here. We’re going to have a TV up here, and we’re going to have the close, glide close doors. Watch that neat. Closes all by itself. You don’t even need to worry about it. We have extra drawer space all down here. Lots of space. So you have the two closets, and then you have the drawers up here. TV, like I said. Lie down in here. You’re going to have lots of room. And then you have the option of the king mattress or the queen mattress.

Video Transcript for “2015 Evergreen Bay Hill Fifth Wheel Features (Part 2 of 2)”
Chad: The outside is just as beautiful as the inside. As you can tell right away, the Bay Hill, beautiful on the outside. Bryan, tell us a little bit. Let’s talk about the exterior of the coach.
Bryan: Well, when we designed the Bay Hill, the idea was to go with a full body paint look without the cost. Now, there’s still paint. This is painted. The front is painted, but all the sidewalls are injected. Okay? And what’s most important is how it’s constructed. This isn’t your standard fiberglass. This is real gelcoat. The same kind of stuff you’re gonna find in a boat haul. It’s hard core. Okay? Gelcoat is what everybody wishes they could have on their coach.
Chad: And I mean, we’re going up against products like, I mean, this is a still a step over Cedar Creek and stuff like that but they’re using hung fiberglass.
Bryan: That’s correct.
Chad: I mean, we’re taking it to another level, better quality. And I think you had mentioned to me, you know, we do a few hundred things 1 percent better.
Bryan: That’s right. Absolutely.
Chad: And this is part of that.
Bryan: This is part of that. And we want to have confidence and our customers to have confidence that when they buy at Bay Hill, they’re buying a better product. And we can’t just say that, we have to show it in the product on how it’s constructed and better quality materials.
Chad: I agree with that.
Laura: Uh, you were mentioning a little bit about the construction. Can you tell us about the sidewalls and, and how …
Laura: … they make those.
Bryan: Absolutely. Well, the industry standard with all fiberglass is just to what they call pinch rolling. Here at Evergreen, what we do is, is we take the time with our vacuum forming process. Every one of our sidewalls, floors, even our end walls are all vacuum laminated. [knocks] Very, very, strong. So, if we use better quality products and a better process to keep them together, it’s a better, better all together package.
Chad: I agree to that, as well. Talk a little bit, too. Frameless windows, what’s the advantage of a frameless window besides just being really good looking?
Bryan: Well, it is. They’re sexy. Frameless windows are sexy. There’s even some studies being done right now on frameless windows. With less metal exposed around the edges, less thermal transfer is going to happen whether it’s hot or cold on the outside into the inside of your coach. Plus, you get the jalousie feature that tips the window out so you can keep your windows open even in the rain.
Chad: Less maintenance, too, right? Laura, we talked earlier in one of our videos that there’s no seams on the outside [00:02:00], less maintenance on a yearly basis, saves people money down the road in maintaining and keeping their coach.
Laura: That’s true.
Bryan: Black, black seals will always make, look, they’ll fade over time and with these you don’t see the seals. It’s all tucked away neatly.
Laura: That’s true. And can you tell us a little bit about the slam latch doors. I…
Laura: …I love the compartments and, and how Bay Hill does this.
Bryan: Well, at Bay Hill, what we do is, we use a combination of slam latch doors and some regular hinges, also. You cannot beat the convenience of slam latch doors. The first thing you might notice is, all of the doors in A Bay Hill are what we call split doors. So, even the side doors open the side, the front doors are also split. The idea is, if you had to open this big door and stand out of the way, or worse yet, what if it came down on your head, whether it’s a magnetic clip, or a little clip itself, I’ve heard people get hurt that way.
Our doors are nice and simple. So, what we’ve done with Bay Hill is designed larger openings with easier to use doors.
Chad: You able to get that good there on the video? It’s a really a sharp look on it. One quick thing I want to point out too is, we talked about quality and stuff you don’t see all the time. These are metal hinges, latches here, okay? Not the plastic latch. So, when we’re talking about those 1 percent of things you do better.
Chad: I appreciate you guys doing that.
Bryan: Absolutely. Metal, metal’s the way to go. Many of our competitors are starting to use plastic just to save costs.
Laura: You were talking about LED lights on the inside, too. And uh, I, you can see over here that the LED lights are all on the outside, as well.
Bryan: Absolutely. I mean, we’ve really tricked out the Bay Hill. Okay? So, underneath you’ve got LED lights right here in your camping area, plus under the awning. These each come standard on the Bay Hill.
Chad: As you can hear, Pete’s RV, we are right by the airport. Actually, it’s kind of funny. We sell, you know we stock a thousand units and it’s never mind how many people come here to view units. So, I apologize for the plane flying over at the moment here.
Bryan: They’re flying in for deals, aren’t they?
Chad: Without a doubt. Without a doubt.
Chad: Jack system. Tell us a little bit. There’s different types of levelers. There’s electric levelers. There’s hydraulic levelers.
Chad: What do we have here?
Bryan: What we have on the Bay Hill is the top end. This is the high end, hydraulic leveling in the front. Now, we space all the jacks out at the ends, so you have better stability in the front. Okay?
Bryan: As standard [00:04:00] in every Bay Hill, we offer a full automatic leveling kit. On most of our models, on almost all, we have the 6 point leveling system. On the 295 we have a 4 point leveling system only on this one. But it’s easy. Single touch button and you’re level.
Chad: Guys, there is a ton more about the Bay Hill product that you can find out at Petesrv.com or Pete’s RV Center. Give us a ring and we’ll be glad to help you. We stock thousands of units. We stock the full Bay Hill line up.
Bryan: That’s right.
Chad: And I can tell you, no one knows more about it than Bryan. So, we gladly will reach out to him, or us, me and Laura with any questions. We buy at the best price. We sell at the best price and we’ll take your trade, whether you’re buying Indiana or Vermont, we’d love to earn your business sometime.
Bryan: Thank you [crosstalk 00:04:35].
Laura: Thanks for watching Pete’s RV, TV. We hope to see you in one of our dealerships soon.
