That's one of my biggest issues with Entegras, the decorative mirror that doesn't have a medicine cabinet. It's just not that functional. I would think that the vanity assembly could be moved out a couple of inches and a raised ledge built behind it. The the mirror could be removed and replaced with a medicine cabinet with 3 way folding mirrors. That's pretty much how the Mountain Aire that I recently looked at had it. With the curvature on the vanity front that should be fairly easy to do without affecting wardrobe access or the doorway.

I wish they'd let me design the floor plans. I'd put Tiffin's functionality with Entegra's quality and they'd have a killer unit.

I agree Cruzer. The good folks who design and build these things do NOT travel in them. So, often, pretty trumps functionality. I really like the double sink vanity but it should have the medicine cabinet feature incorporated. If you go to the SL floor plan it has two separate sinks in different locations and they DO have medicine cabinets. Maybe they can figure out a way to add that feature to the double sink vanity.

Mark, maybe you should suggest that they set up a design committee to see what the customer actually wants. My only hang up with Entegra is the lack of functional floor plans.

I worked all day yesterday and this morning with blueprints of the k style floorplan to interpret this to the tiffin lx floorplan with popup tv in the living area and L shape sleeper sofa at the front of the coach In addition I get some extra cabinet space in the kitchen area by relocating the big tv currently mid coach to the popup. It'a all in design stages now with villa furniture and prestige cabinets but its all doable. The bathroom will have drawers by Entegra from what I was told by March delivery. Also the problem with the fridge door hitting the counter will be solved as well with the addition of another cabinet to the right of the fridge so there is more clearance. I saw dents on that door on some cornerstones on dealers websites so I'm thrilled they fixed that as well

One thing that never fails to impress me is that Entegra is very responsive to new ideas and making corrections where needed. They pretty much started out fromn scratch but are constantly refining things and truly want to make everything as perfect as possible. It's a work in progress but many manufacturers don't even start on the journey.

In the Anthem 44DLQ, we added two more shelves to the large cabinet above the hamper. Now at least we have a place for all medicines, etc. We also were used to medicine cabinets and extra cabinets in the Tiffin bus, but with a little rearranging, we have plenty of room. We love this coach! We're on our way from Tennessee to Florida this morning with a cold start, but the coach is toasty warm with no drafts. It's 30 some degrees out and Noel and I are in short sleeves. Yes there are some design changes that would be alot more practical,but this is the best motorhome we've ever had.

Today met with the cabinet maker at LazyDays in Tucson. He's very creative. We have a great design for two big medicine cabinets on each side of the counter incorporating the existing millwork and even has a plug inside the cabinet to charge things like toothbrush/shaver and hang a hairdryer. Will get drawings but this is solved.
