Hi, don't think yo can go wrong with an Entegra! I believe the 2011 units were on a Freightliner and have a lighter capacity front axle (13000 something vs 14000 something on the new Spartan based Aspires). If you go to the Freightliner Chassis/Spartan Chassis sites they have spec sheets for each brand/model/year with all the details.
For us (we have a 2013 Aspire coming end of the month), price was the biggest factor when looking at pre-owned units - the few that there are! One 2011 Aspire we inquired about was a private sale and the owner's bottom line price was only about $10K less that what we negotiated for a brand new fresh off the line 2013 Spartan based Aspire with all the latest improvements. Just as a point of reference you should be able to negotiate down to about 30-32% off of MSRP on a new Entegra - maybe more! especially for an "older" 2013 still on the lot (like at MHSRV)!
Start with Rvone, MHSRV and Lazy Days, although we never got a competitive price from Lazy Days. Also note the 2014's are now in the order queue and the price went up by about $13K MSRP, at least on the Aspire. Lazy Days just got a few 2013 Aspires in that have the latest factory mods and are still at the lower 2013 price point.
