Not sure if it makes any difference to you or not, but Entegra is a division of Jayco, which is now owned by Thor. I'd really be looking hard at the Newmar. I like the Tiffins too, probably just a little less than Newmar. Both seem to be great coaches with excellent customer service reputations. Entegra has a great reputation as well. Just not sure where its going. Kinda like when Camping World comes in and buys a good local dealer. It doesn't seem to stay a good dealer for long from all that I've read. Just saying.

Newmar over a Tiffin, hands down! You work on one Tiffin product for a living you wouldn't purchase one.

You won't go wrong with a Tiffin or Newmar.

Look at the Tiffin section of irv2 and then go to the Newmar section....they pretty much the same.

Can't speak to Entegra, but I can speak to comparing Tiffin to Newmar, having had both (new). Buy a Newmar!!!

Tiffin has no QC, sloppy production, no scheduling of service appointments at RB, and poor dealer network techs. I say this from personal esxperience with a 2014 Phaeton. One problem after another, back to dealer many times, and back to RB. Gave up, sold the coach and bought a Newmar.

Newmar QC is excellent, service is excellent, dealer is excellent, Factory appointments are excellent, Comfort Drive had no equal and overall a great coach.

If you enjoy working on your coach, buy a Tiffin. If you'd rather enjoy RV'ing, buy a Newmar.
