Watching Ember closely
So far 2021 trailers used wrong floor bonding glue for the composite deck which cause the flooring to turn ugly, big $ fix. All the slides were the cheap failure prone geared system which has been an epic fail. They also could not source the double pane euro windows for a period so many of the trailers have cheap traditional Indiana windows.
Current rumor is that at some point recently they ditched the lousy geared slide mechanism for a cable system thats “better”
Also at some point victron stuff started getting installed also.
Basically there is a huge range of random Ember trailers out there being priced crazy high but are packing the same garbage equipment found on a Wolf Pup sold for $19,000.
Lots of people are convinced Ember is different or Trying to be different…
I do think Ember has an interesting chance of being a really good option for a better materials used in assembly RV… But they have a long way to go still.
They need to quit with the slides on all models under 20ft being promoted as off grid campers.. They need to bring their dealer listed prices back to reality. When you have a dealer with a new 2022 190mbd listing 36k a 191mbd is not a $60,000 trailer… Marking up your trailers $30,000 over a price thats still profitable without offering ultra super premium stuff just tells buyers your business is full of shhh—- ….
I think the 17mbh is better than the Taxa Mantis in every way value, build quality, bunk space, bathroom, etc. Only Mantis advantage is garage fit which I bet very few Mantis owners actually do in real practice, it won’t fit under my garage header.
The Ember 190mbh is cool but should be the more versatile msl configuration and it would be a win win. Not going to lie, the 190-191 are big! Your not dragging these down anything beyond a wide graded road.
