I understand the same with the IFS on the Aspire. Entegra Coach had about 8 "Anthem" chassis with the IFS left when they beefed up the front end of the Anthem. I see Texas has 6 and OrlandoRV (RV Direct) has 2 chassis.

Retail price $6,000 up-charge

Remember, this chassis is running drum brakes, not disk. The Aspire is now on disk and to get the IFS you would go back to drum brakes.

Take care,

I talked to Robin and he said they are the old anthem chassis and they only had 8....he said we should stay with what we have on order....the old chassis has drum not disk brakes......We have and older Allegro Bus and don't have IFS and it has drum brakes so Robin said we will love the drive and ride in the Spartan Chassis....

Texaspenny, think you dealer does not know what he is talking about. The coach is shipped with the Winegard in motion dome. That dome has the capability to accept both the Direct and Dish receiver. The receiver determines where the dome goes to search for the satellite. I just put it in the deal that the dealer was to install my receivers out of my old coach, nothing said about what service they were on. When I picked up the coach both receivers worked flawlessly. Can not image where he got the idea you had to use direct but I do not believe that to be the case. All just my opinion.

I think all they are saying is, the Winegard is set-up for DirecTV as a default. It is only a matter of changing some dip switches to make the Winegard compatible with Dish.

Gene is correct. The satellite can accept either DirectTV or Dish. However, I am told the default is Dish. It is a simple flip of the switch to change to the other provider. Hope this helps.

Texaspenny,
Robin at orlando is WRONG. All Anthems have front Disc brakes. The 8 chassis that they are putting under the Aspire were ordered chassis's for sold coaches, that then had to be upgraded to heavier front ends. Entegra does not order chassis's to have on hand. They only order them as they have sold units.

RISCKY,
The winegard comes with Direct TV as default, then you flip 2 of the dip switches for Dish. Did it myself before we had dish receivers installed.

You are right somewhat believe it or not, Anthem's all had drum brakes until the "up-graded" chassis. Some 2012's and all 2011's, and 2010's were drum brakes on the Anthem (exception: I think 1 Freightliner chassis for the Anthem was built that has disk, saw it at the Hershey Show). One of the reasons we chose the Aspire is because of this.

I agree with Nowabeachbum. We had to reset dip switches to get our in motion dish to receive our Canadiab Bell sat service. If dealer would set it up for your dish then one less thing to worry about. That being said it was an easy fix.

Quick question, who are the best Entegra dealers. It might be time to move the Phaeton. Tom

We bought from Pharr RV, Lubbock, TX. Family business for over 40 years. Great service, straight up people to deal with. No hype.

We bought from Terrytown in Grand Rapids Michigan. Smooth, easy transaction overall. Worked with Bruce VanDyke. They are close to the factory which is nice.
