Any Entegra Vision owners?

My wife and I are in the market for a short Class A and saw the Entegra Vision 26X and 29S (our favorite) this weekend. We were leaning toward a Thor Hurricane/Windsport, but due to Entegra's good quality reputation now are leaning toward the new Vision. Is there anyone out there that has purchased one yet? If so what has your experience been like so far?.....Pros...Cons. Any additional information is appreciated. We would be towing a 4-door Jeep Wrangler. Our purchase date is next Spring so we have time to do a lot of research....may even wait until the 2020 models come out. Thank you for your attention.

The new gas Class A and Class C Entegra coaches are really rather new, so the new owners have to find iRV2.

While these RV's are new, they are backed by Jayco's years of experience at building fine RV's in these segments.

Hope other Vision owners find your post. And if you do make the acquisition, hope you post all about it here for others to share in your experience.

Best luck

Hello! I've moved your thread to the Jayco Owners Forum. The coach you are considering is akin to the gas Elante/Precept/Embark models of Jayco motorhomes. iRV2 owners of those coaches might be better able to answer your questions about the newly introduced Vision line.

We just purchased the Entegra Vision 29S. Not many of these out there yet as they are a new line for Entegra. We looked at many motor homes in this size and class, and this was the best for us.

Hi bbj, I can't answer your question. But I will be following this thread. We stopped at a local RV show today and saw a 26X Vision for the 1st time. We really like it for a short class A. We are also considering a short class A and towing a Jeep Wrangler. Would be interested to see if you end up with one and how you like it.

Hey Okanagan Guy. I have not seen a Vision 29S in person, I will have to track one down and check it out. We saw a 26X today and liked it. Would love to hear more about your 29S and how your liking it.

We really like the Vision 29S. At first we wanted the 26X thinking the shorter size would be easier to drive. However the 29S probably handles much better and there is so much more storage room in the 29S.

If you canít find the ENTEGRA Vision 29S anywhere, see if you can find a Jayco Alante 29s. They have identical floor plans, and build quality is about the same.

Tag in on this as well. Saw a Jayco Alante 29S and was very impressed as well. Unfortunately this was after a nasty hail storm came through shattering most of the vent covers and windows. Dealership wasnít selling these models but still made a very good impression.

How do these handle? Wheelbase to total length is low but not sure how much to make of that.

Talking

I have a 2019 Vision 29S that I haven't taken out yet, but have done a whole lot of modifications and tweeks to make it mine. My only negative comment so far is that the side cameras appear to have the IR lights on a low glow even when the coach is off. Afraid this could be a power drain if drycamping, but time will tell. Proud of some of my hacks and mods and will post pics if anyone is interested. Got sat installed on roof, but everything else I've done myself. Plan on putting one of those swing-arm grills on the bumper near the outdoor kitchen. I already had a single burner butane cooktop that fits in the drawer just fine. I have the theater seats and they seem like they will be a good fit for me. Now, if the weather would quit being so bad here in the mid-Atlantic every weekend, maybe I can get this thing down the road for a shakedown outing before I hit the road heavy in late spring.

The side cameraís ir lights have a low glow when Coach is off??? How do you know for sure? The reason Iím so curious is I have the Vision 29s and my chassis battery will drain in about 5 to 6 days while camping. This is even when Iím hooked to shore power. This would explain the parasitic drain Iím having. I ended up having to install a battery disconnect switch. My coach / house batteries are fine, itís the chassis battery that drains on me.

Your parasitic drain matches mine. In a very dark setting, look at your side cameras and see if you see a very slight glow to the IR lights. Then, use the battery disconnect and see if they go out. Bingo, that will be the answer. A battery disconnect was next on my list.

Hi RI Expat,
I would be interested in seeing some of your hacks and mods. We still haven't bought one yet, but the 29S and 26X still remain at the top of our list.
Its interesting to read about other peoples experiences with these models. Thanks!

I will post some pics as soon as I'm done with a little more fabrication.

If you are torn between the 26X and 29S, let me try and push you over the edge. Past trips convinced me that the little bit of extra room is really nice when you and your travel entourage are trapped indoors because of the weather.

The larger awning is awesome. The larger shower is not just a luxury, it makes all the difference. And the extra storage speaks for itself, especially having a pantry. Not sure how much a difference the outdoor kitchen will make, but I'm sure I will come to love it.

I think the bed on the 26X folds when the slide is in during travel. I can't walk around the bed with the slide in on the 29S, but the bed is very nap ready even when going down the road or if you overnight somewhere where you do not want to put the slide out. And the bed is 5" longer on the 29S.

Other than that, the coaches have all the same features and components, just arranged differently.

@RI Expat,
Thanks for the info and thoughts about the 26X and the 29S. All good points. We did notice the bed needed to be folded when the slide it in. We would prefer the ability to use it with slide in if needed. I would also welcome a bigger shower.
My problem is I have an enclosed garage for storage, but its only 32 feet deep with the door closed. So it may be doable with the added length of the 29S (31.5ft) but it would really be tight.
Thanks again for your thoughts.
Dale
