Ember Premieres First RVs
Ember Recreational Vehicles give select dealers a first look at their first four models.
Ember Recreational Vehicles showcased their first new RVs to select dealers by private appointment last week. At the event, Ember debuted four of its innovative travel trailers designed for off-road and off-grid camping adventures.
Production is scheduled to start in late October.
Ashley Bontrager, Ember’s president and CEO Ember, is the granddaughter of Jayco founders Lloyd and Bertha Bontrager. She began working with the family’s business in 2011, but formed Ember earlier this year with co-founders Chris Barth, Steve Delagrange, and Ernie Miller, who were also at the event. Ember had announced they will focus on manufacturing lightweight RVs primarily.
Barth is Ember’s vice president and chief operating officer while Delagrange and Miller are directors of operations. Between the three co-founders, they amalgamate nearly 75 years’ worth of experience in the RV Industry, including manufacturing and supply.
“Steve and Ernie both bring stability and a high level of expertise to our company,” Bontrager said. “They inspire cooperation, respect, and a high work ethic in all the teams they have led. We are fortunate to have two of the industry’s top manufacturing aces watching over this vital element of our company.”
Barth is known for his innovative, trend-setting designs and his strong relationships with and service to dealers, Bontrager said.
“I am passionate about the team we have put together to deliver high value, intentionally designed products for today’s more discerning owners,” Barth said. “Ashley has empowered our team to build better RVs by building a better RV company.”
