Cornerstone WOW!!!

Went to an RV show tonight and had a chance to see my first Entegra, up close and personal. All I can say is WOW!
Wonderful fit and finish, floor plan the wife loved and now the only question is do we order and take 7-9 months or take the unit we saw.
Opulence Golden Splendor with Caramel Temptaion interior. Nice options, I don't think there was any option not on this coach.
Spent an hour in the coach talking with an Entegra specialist and the local area Entegra Sales Manager.
Wife is a little put off by the price, but loved the amenities. Went from a Ventana to the Cornerstone and then looked at an Allegro Bus. Liked the Ventana better than the Bus. Loved the Cornerstone.

We were camping at Lazy Days in Tucson and decided to kick tires on their lot. I had never heard of Entegra. We went into ten coaches and were really impressed with the Aspire. The quality was very nice. The only thing I didn't like was the plastic kitchen sink. I thought that was cheap for a coach over 200k. We full time in an American Eagle and just attended their rally in Las Vegas. We viewed five of their new coaches there and still think our next coach will be the Aspire. The cornerstone was very nice also, but we don't need that much.

There are a lot of nice coaches, but you'll find pretty much the most for the price point right now in Entegra. Construction and amentiies are as good or better than the rest. Two year bumper to bumper warrantee is better than virtually all. Great Entegra customer service. If the Cornerstone is a little high, the equivalent of the Tiffen Bus is the Entegra Anthem. You'll give up a some horsepower, but you'll find it is a great coach as well.

You might check in stock units with Lazy Days, RVOne, and MHSRV.com. there might be a little availability, but most of us had to order. You like the Cornerstone, buy it and enjoy the summer in travel.

Wish you the best of luck in your search. Buy an Entegra, you likely not be disappointed.

Totally agree with DSL417. We were looking to upgrade from our previous rig and were considering the Bus and DutchStar. Based upon the almost unanimous reviews, we took a closer look at the Anthem and eventually the Cornerstone.

We concluded that the Cornerstone was the best all around product. The K3 Spartan chassis (think King Aire) was also important to us.

I don't have a Cornerstone...
But I do have the older Travel Supreme's version of what is now the Cornerstone.
If I lost my coach today, I wouldn't even think twice about buying anything but an Entegra Cornerstone!
I love the power, the K3 chassis, and all of the "nice"eties...
IMO, buy your last coach next, and the Cornerstone, for me, is the best value on the mkt.

My fellow "Jake",
I toured the AC Factory last year, along with Newmar, and was more impressed with the AC Tour. I didn't know that Entegra was in the area or I would have done that tour also. However, I am disappointed to learn that AC is now using the Freightliner chassis instead of staying with the Spartan, primarily due to cost. I hope to do the Entegra tour this fall.

I would think from a "price point" stance, if you're driving an American Eagle, you could certainly make the jump to the Anthem ... which is a nice compromise between the Aspire and Cornerstone.

We did not get the chance to see the Anthem, but for sure will take a look. We did see the Cornerstone, but scratched our heads when we looked at the cost. We just didn't see that big of a difference in features and amenities based on the difference in cost.

The big difference is the K3 chassis and the 650HP engine. Amenities may be a slight upgrade, but the Anthem is pretty darn nice. I haven't pulled the worst of the grades in the west, but I have pulled a few. I don't drive 70mph. Against that backdrop, the $100K+ saved was worth it to me.

Most Cornerstone owners will say they're pretty happy though with the top of the line, and if I could have reached that far, I'd have looked closer at going that way. Anthem was plenty for my desires though.
