2016 Entegra Aspire 44B

So my husband and I have been "tire kicking" motorhome for the past 2 years. We looked at every make and model withing the 300k range and narrowed it down to 3. The Itasca Ellipse, Newmar Dutch star and the Entegra Aspire. I have to say for the money the Entegra has it all. My problem is I have never heard of them until recently. I have searched for reviews and can't seem to find any complaints. Is no reviews a good thing? Any info would be helpful! Just would like to hear opinions before we sign on the dotted line. 😊

Welcome to the forum. We have sections on each manufacturer you mentioned. You can go to each and see what others are saying. Since you couldn't find anything on Entegras , here's a link to that one.

Entegra used to be Travel Supreme so the line has been around for a good while. It has a new owner, Jayco one of if not the largest privately owned RV company in the country.

The wife and I are on our second Entegra in two years (another story). While every make and model will have its issues, you will not find a better dollar value feature for feature than Entegra. AND you cannot beat the Bontrager family's warranty (2 years) or the fantastic support from customer service.
Just a word of warning, reach up to the Anthem if you go the Entegra route. The all-electric, larger fuel tank, and no-LP, are worth it for most.
That being said, we liked our 1st Entegra, an Aspire, a lot. We wanted a bit more room and found we like the other trade-ups as well.
Good Luck!

It seems odd that you include an Itasca in the same comparison as the other two.

Yeah my husband and I were talking about the propane thing this morning!! The Anthem that the dealer has I wouldn't want so it would mean another o month of waiting for my motorhome. Ugh. Thanks for the advice. I greatly appreciate it!

We've had our Aspire for almost a year and have been extremely happy with the purchase. I don't think you can go wrong with the Entegra brand. We are not full timing but haven't used a full tank of propane yet.

We went from a 5th wheel to a 2015 Aspire.......no regrets

All RVs break so you have to buy from a company that supports the owners. The Entegra customer service is the best I've ever seen.

Is there something wrong with Itasca?
I know the Ellipse has a msrp for like $400,000
Is it a sub par unit?

I have heard good things about Winnebago/Itasca customer service and support.
Just curious on what others have to say about the product.

The Ellipse/Tour coaches appear to be well built and well designed. They have had some problems with their full wall slide but it appears that most of the coach builders have struggled with them. Continue to research and look at coaches with an open mind. The Ellipse will hold its own with those other coaches you mentioned.

Thanks! I love hearing from actual owners and not just salespeople.
