I would REALLY like to find out who this was as we love all the improvements and would like to trade for a 2013 and would like to know the ballpark $$$$$ it would take. Afraid to ask a dealer, might faint right there on the floor. lol

Texaspenny, NO, we got ours in Colorado, had to get them where you could find them but we will be talking to MHS next time around. LOL at Gary, yep, pretty tough but you got to do what you got to do. We put 45000 on our last coach in 2 years so we tend to trade too often it seems. My opinion, with all the 13 changes, not likely to see 14s until late next year with very minor changes. Entegra tends to change, make upgrades, fix problems when they find them and not wait for a model year change. They just made such a major upgrade to the Anthem to set them apart from the Aspire that they called them 13s and brought them out very early but I really do no see that massive of a change coming again next time. All just my opinion.

Gene,
You probably won't get hurt as much as the guy that traded in the 12. We asked Lazydays about trading and they came back with a number of $80,000 difference. Even though at the time we had less than 1000 mile on our coach. MHSRV wouldn't even give us a number. Needless to say, but we'll have our 12 for awhile.

texaspenny, the big changes were: full awning covers on top both sides like the Cornerstone, BIGGER kitchen with many more drawers, the pull out extension, the stainless pull out drawer extensions on top, raised the seat at the table on the booth to make it MUCH more useable and comfortable, more room in the stool room, bigger front tires and rims (just got a letter from Entegra, they are going to put the new bigger tires and rims on ours as a recall), tile option in the bedroom with heat in the floor, LED lighting option, more seating room in the front of the coach on the drivers side, and the collision avoidance system option. All in all, LOTS of changes and all for the positive in our opinion. Besides, we just want to go back to a 45 ft. coach.

BOB, naw, just day dreaming mostly, HOWEVER, if the right trade did pop up we would be gullible enough to bite with all of the new updates.

Dana, IF we had opted for the 44DLQ we would likely not be looking to trade either, we love that floor plan.

Gene, a man of your stature should have all the length he can get!

BTW....what do you mean by "Bigger Tires"? What size did it come with?

Bob, mine came with 295 Michelins, the new ones have 315s on them with the bigger rims. I got a letter yesterday saying they would put the bigger tires and wheels on mine to increase the CCC on the front axle. I am loaded to almost the limit on the front axle with the 295s, but I carry a lot of stuff up front and do not have room for any more but if they are going to give me new, bigger tires and rims, I am sure going to take advantage of it. Entegra always seems to go the extra mile to make sure everything is right with their coaches.

And, by all reporters, I SURE need more length. lol lol

I have 315's on the back and 365's on the front
I think the rear wheels are 9.5 wide and the front are 10.5, or maybe 10.5 & 11.5. I don't remember, but I am sure the front wheels are an inch wider.

Gene,
Watch the clearances between the tires and outer fender. Make sure your wheels are completely straight before you start to level, as with the bigger tires, there will be damage. Very, very tight tolerances. Almost too tight. When the coach is aired up and straight you can't see the edge of the tires.
