JMHO, would not go Anthem prior to 2013. I had a 2013 and it was a great coach after working out the initial stuff. I chose it over a 2013 All Bus because, at the time, the forums seemed very problematic with the Bus. That said, i know people that love their 13 Bus. Probably OK with either in the 13 model year.

In 2013 we looked at the Anthem and the Allegro Bus. We did not like the floor plan in the Entegra, but the 43QGP Bus was just what we wanted. Of the eight motor homes we have owned, this is by far the best one. Tiffin changed some rear suspension controls and reprogrammed the computers at my request and at their expense. After 2 1/2 years, we couldn't be happier or more trouble free. It is a joy to drive and live in.

I've owned both. As far as build quality the Entegra is far ahead of the Tiffin. Example: 3/4 in marine grade plywood vs osb in the bus, much better insulation, outside walls secured with carriage bolts through the floor and frame vs screws from underneath on the Tiffin.
Tiffin definitely utilizes the interior space well. Both of the companies have good customer service so you probably can't go wrong with either, but I would go with the Entegra.

We were set on buying the tiffin bus then we drove one in the rain and it was a deal breaker .. The anthem we ended up with is like driving a s- class Mercedes compared to an other coach I have drove... 12.5k diesel gen - 8 house batteries - 2 inverters ... Rooftop solar and that's just a few of differences that come standard ...Entegra all the way. JMO as a actual owner.
