Evergreen made Elements in 2015 and 2016, but I don't know if they will be making any more.
My dealer has a couple of 2015s in inventory, and RVtrader.com shows some 2016s.

We went to an open house at an RV dealer last week and have purchased a 2013 Evergreen Element 26SRL. I love the Escape, but by the time we loaded it up with everything we wanted, it would have been almost 40K Canadian for a trailer that we wouldn't be able to enjoy until the summer of 2017 at the earliest. The Element has mostly everything we were looking for, and more, for the price of a base Escape. Being a used model, I am hopeful that any bugs have already been worked out! :-)

I hope to see some Escapes when we are on the road, and maybe will visit with you!

Cheers,
Sandy

Assuming that this is the infamous Can Am RV in London, anyone involved in "how much can your car tow" discussions has heard about Andy Thompson and his "professional towing setup". I'm sure it's a fine place to buy a trailer... just be wary of claims that you can safely and reliably tow that three-ton Element with a Jaguar sedan.

This is presumably Sandy's trailer:
2013 EVERGREEN Element 26SRL
Evergreen no longer shows this floorplan; it was presumably discontinued, although there is a different "26" (likely 26-foot body) plan shown on their website. That's not surprising - floorplan offerings routinely change from year to year.

Hi: missantartica5... Can-Am is an original AS. dealer. Been around a long time. I used to drive by daily as we live off #4 hwy. south of St. Thomas. Alf

Nice trailer, but with a dry weight of 4900 lbs, I wouldn't put in the same class as an Escape.
