I don't carry a printer. If I need something printed, I stop at Kinkos or a FedEx store.. But you could store under the bed, in the closet or basement and bring it out as necessary.

I could never live without a printer. If it were my coach I would have to come up with a place for one. You'd think that coach builders would provide this. I am not pointing a finger at Entegra, as I know of no coach builder who provides for a printer, but they should do so. This is the computer age.

Where

We have the table & chairs in our 44dlq. We modified the drawer at the end of the credenza for the laptop. We took the end off the drawer and cut the drawer off above the track then we hinged the drawer front back on to the opening. Now you pull the front down and slide the computer out. We then lowered the shelf under the computer and put it on a slide so we can slide the printer out. Everything is completely hidden when closed, but totally accessible with the doors open. Works great for us. Pat, I see you own a Tiffin. We had a 2011 bus before the Entegra. If you look at the setup in the bus with the table and chairs ours is just like it except ours is on the right side of the credenza. I realize most of the Entegras have the booth, but that's why we ordered the table and chairs. Lots more cabinets and storage.

Loisjop, that sounds like a great solution. Could you post photos?

You might want to consider one of the portable types. I use a canon IP100 for business and it works quite well.

I have tons of printers at home and work of every flavor but I use a Canon Pixma iP100 printer for my laptop. It's very compact, fast, and prints reasonable photo quality if needed. You can use a USB cable or set it up for bluetooth if you want wireless to keep it far away from your laptop.

Pat, we looked at the Anthem and other Entegras as well. We store our laptop in the pull out drawer in the front of the passenger seat. I store my printer on the floor in the bedroom closet, it is wireless, so I bring it out when I need it and set it anywhere. We like the Zephyr floor plan better, so we will probably stick with the Zephyr. However, in 2 weeks, we will be taking a re-look at the Entegra, we'll see.

The Pixma iP100 looks nice if all you need is a printer. I need to scan and copy so I want an all-in-one printer.

Noel, what is the width and depth of your printer platform?

Marc, it's an all in one printer that just fits. We're away from the motorhome right now, but we should be back in an hour or so and will measure and post the dimensions.
