You're correct Tsronco. To get the Queen bed you have to get Table and chairs. Otherwise you get a twin in the PS slide. Unless you get the 44SL. But, when you get the T&C option, the hide a bed on the PS slide is changed out into an easybed(AKA jacknife). We were able to get the twin Hide a bed also. We made it part of the deal. They told us that we can only use 1 at a time, but we can pick which one to use.

Your coach is beautiful! We just purchased our first ever RV last week. We decided on the 2012 Anthem (42DLQ white diamond) it has the 2013 integrated awnings and mobile eye. We pick it up 2/22...waiting 1 month is killing us lol. Can't imagine waiting 4 months! Hope you enjoy yours as much as we anticipate enjoying ours.

RISCKY,
Is your coach actually going to be titled 2012 or 2013? does it have the tuthill IFS front suspension? They started the transition to the integrated awnings a week after ours went down the line. Only ours doesn't have the integrated awnings. We asked Tad specifically before we ordered ours and they told us emphatically, they will not have integrated awnings on the Anthem. We still love the product, but they have a looonnng way to go to be compared to Tavel Supreme.

The coach we purchased was apparently intended to be used for several RV shows. In fact, we had to agree to let them use it for a few upcoming shows before we could pick it up. I don't think you were misled, seems like they built this particular Anthem a while back to showcase some of Entegra's new 2013 features. I'm certain you got a better deal on yours than we did on ours!

We went to pick up our coach at the factory Nov 16, 2011. A month ahead of schedule. But because of a few issues, we left it there. The 2013 features were shown at the louisvile show the very next week. That's the frustrating thing. We asked for the awnings and didn't get them, then the next coach off the line has them. We didn't know it until january, then our coach was delivered to us on the 18th.
we love the product and our coach, but we are frustrated with the management.

I dont see how you can blame this on the management. You bought a 2012. The 2013 model has the awning.

There's a 2012 Anthem 44 DLQ at Lazydays with the Awning. If the management had been honest and told us of the changes coming. We would have waited. We offered to pay extra for the awnings and were told they will not allow the integrated awnings on the Anthem as they want the Cornerstone to be the coach you buy to get them.
That's why we blame the management. We feel like we were outright lied to us about it.

Yea...

Next time you go buy a car, ask the dealer what changes are coming for the new model year before the model is released. Let me know how that works for you. A few months after I bought my Ram pickup, they upgraded the engine for higher HP and torque. Do you honestly expect a MFG to grandfather next year upgrades? Entegra didnt force you to buy the one you have, so live with it and stop playing the victim card. It was your decision to buy at the end of the model year!

As far as the one that has the awning, buy it if you like it that much since its the only one that exists. Entegra can crank out a 1-off if they want to for whatever reason they have. Companies do that from time to time before production plans are finalized.

Yep, 2 weeks after we bought our 2011 we saw the 2012 upgrades that correct the 3 things that we really thought needed changing when we bought ours, the expanding pull out drawers in the kitchen that added space and countertop, the pantry, and more room for the double sinks in the bathroom. So.........we traded a little too soon, no one's fault but ours and we got a great deal. Gives us something to look forward to when we get ready to trade again, just makes us want to do that sooner rather than later. HOWEVER, we still love the coach we have and will look forward to see what else Entegra can come up with to peak our interest even more in the new models each year, and who knows...........maybe sometime they will get to the point we "just have" to trade up to a new one. lol

End of the model year??? It's February 2012 not 2013. New model years traditionally come out July-August, not December of the previous year.
We bought our coach at the begining of the model year that last 4 months. We have the only 44 DLQ for 2012. What MFGR do you know that only has a model year last a couple of months. We understand making line changes, but when they make the change you were asking for on the very next coach, you wouldn't feel frustrated.
We like the coach. Loved our TS so much we bought Entegra. Just a little frustrated at the circumstances.
