Very true, there are units that are already on the lots in various colors and models, but if you are particular and want your unit customized the way you like it you will be waiting. One dealership told me they had a model with all the features except the color and additional awning, but if I'm dropping 300K plus I'm very particular. The wait is not an issue for me, mainly because I'm still researching, but for someone that wants a model like yesterday the their options are to wait or pick up a model that is already on the lot. There is a benefit for take purchase of a unit on the lot though, you may be offered a considerable discount compared to customizing. However that's something that you may have to consider carefully.

Ann n Gene, which floor plan did you order?

Tony

Tony, we ordered the 44 DLQ in the Radiant Copper. We wanted the 30+ improvements and changes made by Entegra since we got our 2011 plus we wanted to get back to a 45 ft. coach.

That's the same floor the wife and I are look at as well, but with the Midnight Illusion paint option. What additional options did you pick?

We are going with the tile in the bedroom, the MobileEye system, the Girard Nova dual awning system and an extra sliding tray in the basement.
You will love that Midnight Illusion, it is really a beautiful paint job, I am too lazy to try to keep it clean, but when it is clean it is the class of the group in my opinion.

We like the same options, what do you think about the solar panels?

We have never needed the solar panels on our present coach. With the 8 AGM batteries and the auto gen start and we do not boondock a great deal. Therefore, we did not feel the cost would be justified for us.

I thought the solar panel was just for the chassis batteries.

Actually, there is a standard 5 watt solar panel that does charge the chassis batteries. What he is talking about is the 100 watt solar panel option to charge the house batteries.

Ann n Gene,

thanks for the feedback, I was quoted $4500.00 for that option and if I really don't need it, that's money I can keep in my pocket. The wife will appreciate that.

Another question what is this Canadian Standards $712.00, is this an emissions or regulatory type of option required for traveling in Canada?

The Canadian Standards is a requirement for coaches sold in Canada. You can still drive in Canada without it, you just couldn't sell your coach in Canada without it.

Thanks Wyntaxman,

I figured it was something regulatory.

I would think $712 is not just for the certification. It probably includes a couple of things to get the coach certified such as daytime running lights and a metric speedometer + maybe more...

rely

Am I missing something here ("wouldn't be the first time"---that was so Gene couldn't say that to me)---but are you talking about the solar panels that are listed in the "build your own coach" on the Entegra site, because if you are they are listed at $2,775.00---Tadd sold me on those with some sales pitch about the refrigerator drawing more elect. so I went for them, but I would not have gone for it for $4,000.00 + dollars!!!!
