Entegra Production

I'm hearing backlogs on Entegras of anywhere from five to seven months. Does anyone know if the company is planning to add another line or ramp up production in any other way?

Yes, Entegra just stepped up production last week to help with demand.

They had been building only 3 per week, they are now at 8 per week and still increasing production gradually.

Let's just hope the increased production does not lower the QA. That seems to be a major issue across the board when production increases

Randy, I AGREE whole heartedly but Entegra has been planning and training for this increase in production for a long time. They seem to be very determined and vigilant to keep the highest quality as the number one priority. They are striving (and imho succeeding) in making the Entegra one of the very best coaches on the market. Heres hoping and thinking that they will remain committed and successful in their mission.

Yeah I talked to our dealer in Orlando today and he said that Entegra is very conservative and are being very diligent not grow too fast....they are the only manufacturer that offers 2 years warranty I think that makes a big statement and Robin told me today that Entegra gave an extra year to those customers who bought an Entegra coach before the 2 year warranty started...they are aware of the problems that other companies have had with growing too fast and cutting corners.....we also talked about them starting a Rally Club and its in the works now....Our Coach will come off the line April 24th!!!! Can't wait....it will be the first of the 2013 Aspires...Looking forward to meeting up with all of you at a Rally someday soon!!!!

No changes for 13's as the 2012 was the biggest changes...Entegra is really the up and coming manufacturer with their focus on customer satisfaction and building the best coach on the market....20 days and counting

Texaspenny, I have Dish and, sup rising enough, I do get a lot of HD, I do not get it all and it is a little quirky but it works surprisingly well. I was sure I would have to install a Winegard Traveler to be happy. I had a Traveler on my Alante and LOVED it but this winegard in motion dome works good enough I have not been tempted enough to price an upgrade yet. Try it, I think you will get by and be fairly happy with it, it is not as good as the traveler but more than adequate in my opinion. Congratulations, you will have a great coach. They have upped production to 9 coaches per week and will soon be going to 10 so maybe dealers will be able to catch up a little and have a few on the lot for folks to look at.

Just found out that in 2013 they have a limited edition of Aspires with IFS...that is amazing!!!! I called our dealer to see if we can add that feature!!! it is closer to an Anthem

yep, some Aspires with IFS, BUT if you want one , best get with the program soon. The deal, as explained to me at least, they went to the 16,400 front axle with 315s on the Anthem because of weight problems and are using the left over 14,6oo with 295s and IFS on Aspires and is limited to what they have in stock. All just my opinion.

PS See where MHSRV is already advertising several coming in with the IFS so they may be gone soon if not already. OR they may be so popular that they will become the standard, who knows.
