That's such a hard question as the answer really depends on your respective needs/wants. We looked long and hard at both the Aspire/Anthem. Our previous RV was...a tent. For us, the all electric coach, IFS, auto bay door locks, electric shades and integrated awnings, larger gen, 315 tires among the other differences pushed us over the edge. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with either coach. I have a close friend that is currently wrestling with choosing between an Anthem or Aspire. It's a really tough decision.
In lieu of asking an Anthem owner, you may be better served to ask the Aspire owners is not having the "Anthem options" something they wished they had or not really an issue.
As for us, we love the coach and the other Entegra owners we've met. I can't say enough GREAT things about Entegra's customer service dept. Tadd, Joyce, Don and the crew have been nothing short of amazing to work with. When we've had issues, they are right there to provide assistance. They are incredibly responsive, helpful and overall we just don't have a negative thing to say.
For us, it was worth the $50k. But again, I'd be very interested in the Aspire owners comments.
