Looking at a 2011 Aspire and want opinions

Hi, I have a 2006 Monaco Knight 38 PDQ that Iím trading in on a 2011 Entegra Aspire 42 DL. My Knight is like New and has 18k miles. The Entegra has 48k miles. The deal is my Monaco plus $66k. My question is... am I trading down in quality? Thanks.

No the 11 Aspire is a very good coach, not as fancy as the Anthem and Cornerstone but same hardwoods and finished, built with the same craftsmanship on the same line. Hung wall sides, good furniture and features etc. I had a 2011 Anthem and loved it, great woodwork, fit and finish, king bed. Think you will come up a lot from a Knight. All JMHO

Purchase what you feel good about, what meets your lifestyle and budget, as I really believe only you can decide those questions. There are just too many variables to compare.

Night and day. you're moving to a tag axle coach. We love ours! Had a Super 'C' and hands down our Aspire is way better and it's four years older.

Once, we test drove a 2008 Monaco Camelot before buying our Entegra. Seemed under powered, and rattled to no end. My wife and the Sales guy roamed the coach as I drove, trying to figure out where the noises were coming from. Maybe the previous owner didn't take care of it. It's the only experience we have with the Monaco, so not sure this is indicative of their quality or not.

Our 2012 Aspire has 53,000 miles on it, and is pretty darn solid. Purchased it with 28,000 miles. We were also very fortunate that the previous owner took excellent care of our coach. The quality throughout was incredible compared to other coaches we've looked at.

If the previous owner took care of it, you'll get an amazing coach. JMO!

We're in the process of trading our 08 knight for a 17 aspire.
Can't wait to actually take delivery of the new coach!
