EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC has rolled out the all-new T3970 floorplan in its Tesla series of toy hauler fifth-wheels offering upscale features ranging from fine residential-style floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, to an elegant entertainment center.
Like all Tesla models, the T3970 is built with characteristic EverGreen durability, including DuraLite double-welded aluminum frame in the walls and floor, and outer walls built with EverGreen’s signature vacuum lamination process.
“We’re proud to offer consumers a fifth-wheel toy hauler that is such a great blend of luxury, toughness and versatility,” said EverGreen President and COO Mark Boessler in a press release. “I applaud the combined work of our engineers, production and sales staff, who brought the T3970 to market. Tesla takes the luxury of home to the remote locations for motorsports enthusiasts.”
Living area features include:
• Residential-style, floor-to-ceiling cabinets in kitchen and master bedroom. The kitchen features a beautiful wine rack while bedroom cabinets offer added storage.
• Lighted pantry in the kitchen.
• L-shaped sofa located between the front door and kitchen, makes the perfect spot for watching the large TV in the entertainment center or gazing at the fireplace. Under the sofa is plenty of storage space.
• A residential-style vanity in the master bathroom, with open-faced drawers.
• A decorative, functional cabinet next to the entertainment center. Enclosed in the top of the cabinet is the control panel.
• An optional locker in the garage to store gear.
Like all the Tesla fifth-wheel toy haulers, the triple-axle T3970 has a garage more than 12-feet long. True to EverGreen’s policy, the model number reflects the actual box size – in this case, 39-plus feet. The overall length, when the fifth-wheel hitch and trailer A-frame are included, is 43-feet, 6-inches.
The T3970’s sizable length and width dimensions, plus the interior height of 13-feet, 1-inch, offer plenty of open space for relaxing, entertaining, cooking, dining, and sleeping. Three slideout rooms expand the living space while the living room slide accommodates an 80-inch recliner sofa and the kitchen slideout makes room for the L-shaped sofa.
The bedroom slideout features an 80-inch innerspring pillow top mattress. At the other end, the garage converts to sleeping quarters with two sofa beds and a queen bed above. The sleeping arrangements are augmented in the middle by the living room’s recliner sofa.
EverGreen offers an optional T3970’s High Voltage Package, which includes Kicker 500-watt subwoofer, amplifier and “Get Amped” interior speakers, along with wireless remote control and several other features.
Standard equipment on the T3970 includes a heavy-duty, eight-foot-long ramp door rated at 3,000 pounds. Beavertail ramp is standard equipment among the other exterior features including a crown roof, LED lights, a door-side patio light, speakers, LCD TV bracket, and a high-gloss gel coat exterior with composite substrate. Finished and lighted pass-through storage compartments add to the great storage capacity found in various other places in this model.
Optional equipment includes a double-door refrigerator/freezer, standard stainless steel three-burner range with oven and a power exhaust lighted range hood, stainless steel full-size sink with cover and a stainless steel microwave. The Live Wire Package upgrade features Corian kitchen countertop and raised hardwood cherry cabinet doors, among several options.
The bathroom offers a full tub and shower surround with hand sprayer, recessed vanity light and large medicine cabinet with mirror are standard.
Elsewhere, the interior of the T3970 exudes the rich look of a well-appointed home with solid wood doors, ceiling crown moldings and raised-panel interior passage doors. Padded, “no-crack” vinyl flooring runs throughout the Tesla with furnishings highlighted by residential-style upholstered furniture.
