2015 Evergreen Bay Hill 379FL Review

by RVGuide.com

With its national television debut on HGTV and Great American Country, the 2015 Evergreen Bay Hill is setting high standards for the fifth wheel. Luxurious and family-friendly, the 2015 Evergreen Bay Hill delivers beauty and function at an affordable price.

Eight floorplans are available to choose from, including the 379FL featured on Great American Country’s RV 2015. The 379FL has a total dry weight of 12,734 lbs, dry hitch weight of 2,390 lbs, and gross vehicle weight rating of 16,070 lbs. For liquids, the 379FL has a fresh tank capacity of 70 gallons, gray water tank capacity of 80 gallons, and black water tank capacity of 40 gallons. For measurements, it has an overall length of 42’, height of 13’1”, and width of 100”.

Evergreen constructed the Bay Hill with aluminum framing around its doors, windows and baggage openings. As a result, the Bay Hill’s wall systems are strong, durable and less likely to leak or flex. Another key feature is a six-point Level Up Automatic Levelling System, which levels the fifth wheel in less than one minute. It provides more stability than its competitors because it has six points of contact to the ground. The system is also equipped with an auto re-hitch memory function, which remembers the exact height that the Bay Hill was previously unhitched at.

RV road trips usually mean cramped bathrooms and uncomfortable showers. Luckily, the Bay Hill 379FL breaks all stereotypes and surpasses all expectations.

Linoleum flooring is easy to clean and the power exhaust fan keeps the air fresh. Equipped with a linen closet, the bathroom provides ample room for storing, washing and grooming.

When you’re ready to trade your hiking clothes for your pyjamas, escape to the bedroom. The queen-sized bed has an overhead cabinet, perfect for storing books, DVDs, and small gadgets. If you like sprawling out at night then do your partner a favor and request the king-sized bed, instead. Your clothes can go in the wardrobe, closet or drawers. The closet features washer/dryer prep, which means that you no longer need to make pit stops at Laundromats if you don’t want to. Fully carpeted, the bedroom is a cozy escape from a hectic time on the road. If you like watching TV before dozing off, then request a TV – the room is equipped with a TV jack and LCD TV bracket.
