2016 Evergreen Lifestyle Luxury LS37CKSL Review
Designed like an apartment, the luxurious Evergreen Lifestyle is a perfect match for those seeking a part time or full time residence.
Out of 12 floorplans to choose from, we decided to explore the Lifestyle LS37CKSL. It has an exterior length of 39’4”, exterior width of 101”, and exterior height with A/C of 13’0”. It has a hitch weight of 2,908 lb., dry weight of 14,722 lb. and net carrying capacity of 2,182 lb. For liquids, the Lifestyle LS37CKSL has a fresh water capacity of 87 gallons, black water capacity of 38 gallons and gray tank capacity of 72 gallons.
The Evergreen Lifestyle features a heavy gauge welded aluminum superstructure, making it one of the toughest trailers on the market. To fight off Mother Nature’s foul moods, the Lifestyle has a five-inch aluminum-trussed, one-piece roof, which features ½-inch plywood decking and Owens Corning fiberglass insulation. That same insulation is found in the walls, floors, and caps. Floors have 5/8-inch exterior grade tongue and groove plywood floor decking. The fully enclosed, heated and insulated holding tanks come with valves and an insulated heat duct. A six-point automatic levelling system makes the Lifestyle easy to set up, while the FlexFoil thermal insulation package makes it a cosy temperature.
The Lifestyle has a beautiful exterior, guaranteed to turn heads on the road or the trailer park. Dual-pane safety glass frameless windows are tinted, providing you with lots of light without the cost of a loss of privacy. H-seal “Squeegee” enclosure wipes keep your RV clean, while a high-gloss gel coat keeps it shiny. Goodyear tires come with 16-inch aluminum wheels and the TPO hybrid roof comes with ½-inch plywood roof decking. Baggage doors are equipped with heavy-duty slam latches, and exterior security lights have separate interior switches. When you’re ready to enter, walk up the entry steps, equipped with step lights.

When you first walk into the Lifestyle LS37CKSL, you find yourself in the kitchen, struck by its beauty. Residential appliances and hardwood cabinetry make the space look rich and luxurious. Cabinets have hidden hinges and full extension ball bearing drawer guides. A kitchen island, equipped with a residential brushed nickel sink and Corian countertops, sits in the middle of the linoleum floor. Against a wall rests a 23- cubic-foot refrigerator, 30-inch stainless steel microwave, large pantry and three-burner range oven. If you hate washing dishes then you’ll be thrilled to know the Lifestyle comes with a dishwasher. When dinner’s ready, you can serve it at the freestanding table, located right beside the kitchen.
Moving into the living room, the carpet, ceiling fan, and wood cabinetry create a warm and cozy feel. Hardwood trim and residential treatments on the windows add elegance to the space. MCD roller shades block out sunlight, which comes in handy when you’re trying to watch cable TV on your LED HD TV. Entertainment junkies will fall in love with the FM/CD/DVD 5.1 home theater system. The Winegard TV antenna comes with a power booster and signal meter, while the satellite prep comes with a docking center to the living room and bedroom. With an intense entertainment system like this, you can spend your days relaxing on a luxury recliner or hide-a-bed sofa, while watching your favourite TV programs. If you prefer passing time in a more traditional way, you can request a fireplace and write in your journal at the pullout desk.

After a busy day of TV watching or mountain climbing, you’ll want to clean yourself up in the bathroom. It is easy to clean the Corian countertop, which comes with an undermount sink with a brushed nickel one-lever faucet. The one-piece fiberglass shower has a removable handheld brushed-nickel showerhead. A toilet, medicine cabinet, and Fantastic fan with rain sensor all come standard in the bathroom.

When you’re ready to call it a night, step into the master bedroom. Designed to give you a good night’s sleep and decorated to make you feel like you’re in a luxurious condo, the bedroom surpasses all RV expectations. The V-grooved glass door gives you privacy, while large windows give you natural light. Though it comes with a queen-sized bed, you can upgrade to a king, fully equipped with a European-style mattress foundation and under-bed storage. The residential comforter comes with matching pillows and the residential headboard has nailhead trim. You can organize all your clothes in the large dresser and wardrobe. If you need extra storage space, request a large wardrobe, equipped with mirrored doors and framed in hardwood. A washer and dryer can be installed in the wardrobe space. Before you nod off, turn on your LED TV and catch up on your favorite show.
