2020 Anthem - Ballet Paint Scheme

While at NIRVC’s Phoenix facility a couple of days ago, I had a chance to see a newly arrived 2020 Anthem with the Ballet paint scheme. Kind of a weird name for a paint scheme, but I guess they had to call it something.

In any case, the Ballet paint scheme definitely looked better in person than the rendering on the Entegra web site would suggest. Below is the rendering from the web site, followed by three photos I took.

For me, the best part of this paint scheme is the prevalence of light colors and a relatively small amount of black. The light front cap is especially nice and should be at least a little cooler in really hot weather. The sidewalls are too “busy” for my taste, as is the rear cap, but overall it’s a very nice paint scheme.

The coach isn’t on the NIRVC web site yet, but it should be soon. Once it is there will of course be more photos.

The light colors on the front cap are a definite plus. The renderings are terrible and I talked to Pat Carrol and others about the bad impression they make.

I like it ... except, I agree, the red part in the middle makes it way too busy.

Light colored caps will help with cooling. I like it, but I love my Victory Blue

I’d love to see one with very light gray or even white instead of the beige teamed with the blue and black and a few red accents. But I really don’t need to have another “last coach.” 🤣

Larry, a nice paint scheme and the awesome handling K2-450 single steering box, non-steerable tag..

..anything cooking in AZ other than the temps?

Actually no Matt. The 2020 Anthems are still on a K2 chassis but now have the same Reyco Granning 20,000 pound two-gearbox steer axle & 365 steer tires as the Cornerstones.

Didn't check to see if the 2020 Anthems have a steerable tag, but I think not.

Plenty warm here in the Phoenix valley, but we have our escape planned for a couple of weeks from now. Looking forward to it.

Short little jaunt:

North to Boise for a drag racing event, up to Montana/Glacier from there, across the northern states to Petoskey, then Spartan for service & Entegra for PJ's class, down to Florida, back toward Arizona.

We'll be gone about a week & a half.

I’ve never seen a manufactures brochure to be an accurate representation of any paint job. I’ve found you really need to see it “in person” if color choices are important to you.

I could be wrong on this, but I would think a steerable tag would have to have its dish reversed the opposite way of how it's showing on your OP.

Good point Dewey - and I believe you're right.

I checked all the 2020 Anthem specs I could find on the Entegra web site and didn't see any mention of a steerable tag. So between that and your astute observation, I'm going to say the Anthem's K2 chassis doesn't have a steerable tag.
