Entegra Update......

Has anyone heard about any Entegra product updates / changes emanating from the recent RVIA meeting in Louisville last week? Since this is a dealer only meeting many companies utilize this format to introduce product line enhancements.

Thanks for feedback.......

My understanding is there will be very minimal updates from now until the 2014s are introduced.

The 44U Aspire was officially launched at Louisville but that's all that I know of.

Has anyone heard what the acceptance was like for the 44U? I'm wondering if it was well received or if it had questionable marketability.

I went looking for the new floorplan on Entegra's website but apparently they haven't posted the details yet. I really wanted to know if they will change the chassis, i.e., IFS, in this new floorplan.

No, it's the same chassis as the 42' Aspire except with a longer wheelbase. You need to go to an Anthem to get IFS.

Here's the floorplan:

Cruzer, during the tour we went on 2 weeks ago it was brought to our attention about a modification to the A/C venting system. The end result is a much quieter system. They relocated the vents in the ceiling and I didn't even know they were on during a walk though of a Anthem we did at the final finish part of the tour. Seems that the noise from the A/C vents was a issue some were talking about.
You might know more about this and can explain to the folks better than a non engineer guy who made a living as a sales and marketing guy! Moreover, the front TV was moved to the center and enlarged to 32 from 27" flat screen. Both of these modifications have been implimented across the product line. Don't know when these changes started but our guide was pleased and spoke about continuous improvement and input from customers.........

Entegra is great about listening to their customers and tweaking the line to perfect things. I believe the existing air intakes were a bit close to the A/C units themselves so spreading them out changed that. However, I found the old system not any louder than our Allegro Bus so the new system must be really good. The TV change I knew about. One thing for any potential Entegra buyer to keep in mind is that these ongoing improvements are constantly coming in but the website and literature doesn't keep up with that. When in doubt, a phone call to Entegra will answer any questions on specifics that may not be reflected in the sales literature or website.

Our AC is loud enough I have to turn up the TV volume 2-3 clicks when it comes on. And a phone call is almost impossible when center unit is on. I don't have any comparison so don't know if ours is exceptionally noisy, or if anything can be done to help.

Not sure if I like that table or not. I would hope that it is removable.

I'd agree on that table...looks like a partial fix for several types of inputs that really solves no input completely. It just looks awkward. I would have though posts into floor moorings would have been more functional and let you slide around. And folded down position makes it totally unusable for a quick lunch stop. Just don't know about this change.

Yeah I don't like the table or floor plan at all... Makes me feel like I'm eating off a TV tray.... I hope Entegra does better then that. I don't think that floor plan is going to go over very well

Our new 44DLQ has the new ac vents and the acs are very quiet. My neighbors Newell has as much or more ac noise as my Entegra. I plan to do a more in depth review of our new coach soon with comparisons to our 2011 if there is any onterest, just need more time with it to br fair to both.
