FYI, it is amazing how much you can store in the W/D cabinet in the bedroom.

That is a seriously spectacular coach. My wife and I have lived full time in the '03 version of that coach with a Cummins engine for 7 years now. I don't know how you could do better. The maintenance it has received is key.

Good luck.

It really depends on what is already in place. Make sure you have good flaps behind the dtive, and tag if you have one. I did Alaska 2 years ago and it's amazing where you find all that gravel! Yes, we lost our windshields, but that was anticipated.

That sounds like a great coach! Plenty of weight carrying capacity and great engine!

Tagcat, I believe you have found your coach. Truly an outstanding coach coupled with a great Detroit engine. Hope the maintenance records and survey go well!

You should find tag better in higher wind conditions. I had a 2011 Dip and that had an adjustable tag so we could change the weight ratio fro front to rear and reverse. I filled it up with everything and weighed it with different pressures on the tag, graphed it and could make adjustments easily

Ok, read everything to help with the new Entegra with full slide but single. We plan to have a trailer to tow my SUV and larger items. Many people have said "unless you are pulling a trailer....how does a tag change trailering?

Tags are so stable it will not adversely effect trailering, but backing up a long motorhome with smaller trailer is is difficult & you will want to dump the air from the tag before backing up. Most newer coaches will automatically dump it once reverse is selected.
