Why did you not purchase the Entegra? The depreciation issue? Did you look at used ones? We are starting our search. Enjoy your new coach.

I was very close to buying an Entrega Cornerstone, and then I looked at a 2011 Newmar Essex, it was an eye opener. That got me looking at Essex with the Spartan K3 chassis that I wanted on the on the Cornerstone. Essex switched to the K3 in 2015 so I started the hunt. Why change; I liked to feature set Newmar offers better on the Essex model. So I started looking and found a deal on an 2015 Essex in Florida. We flew down and looked at it and bought it. It was low miles and the previous owner took the major hit on the depreciation and that appealed to my frugal side. He also added a lot of extras like Tyron bands, Summit SS package, and upgraded King Aire bath.

I have owned the coach almost one month to the day now and have no buyer remorse. Still blows me away when I go to it. (First coach ever)

My advise is to do a lot of research and frequent the owners forums for the model and make you want. Know more then the salespeople know. Visit the factory and do tours. I went to the Entegra plant twice for 2 tours and I frequented the Entrega forum so much I almost feel like a traitor for not buying one.

What I learned about Newmar is their customer service is top notch in taking care of me a second luxury line owner. Also the folks at Silverleaf have been great helping me learn and configure my system.

I had a problem with the Wingard Rayzar and sent the dome back for repair, today I got an email stating they were sending me a replacement at no charge. Made my day!

Research: Had my ball joint recall done at Josam in Orlando along with an alignment and two slide motor TSB done at NIRV in Atlanta on my maiden voyage home from Palm RV in Ft. Myers.
