2012 Entegra Aspire

We are looking at the 2012 & 2013 Entegra Aspire 42 DEQ. I have noticed that entegra used the IFS Spartan chassis on several of their 2013 aspire coaches. Has anyone experienced both solid front axle and IFS on the spartan chassis? I have read many posts from aspire owners regarding the wonderful ride quality of this coach/chassis combination, I assume they all have the solid front axle set-up. What I would really like to know is, is it worth the extra 20K to get the 2013 with the IFS or is ride quality just as good with the solid front axle? I look forward to your responses.

Where did you hear the 2013 will have IFS on the Aspire? Looking on their site, and from what I hear, you have to move up to the Anthem to get the IFS. They had a limited number of chassis for the Aspire that had the 450 Cummins and IFS, but I believe those are now gone. Does anyone know if they will at least offer the IFS as an option on the Aspire?

Also, I started a thread here Independent Front Suspension ... what's the buzz?
under Class A Motorhomes regarding IFS - some good replies over there.
