Thanks for all the replies. We had a long day. Monaco is off our list. The whole monster dash up front was overkill and obtrusive.
We did, however put American Coach on the list. We both fell in love with the American Coach Revolution 42G. It had everything we wanted.
We didn't make it to the Newmar/Entega dealer. We will have to make that visit in a couple of weeks.
We are very specific in our wants and needs and know our budget. If you look at the floor plans of the coaches we have been looking at, you will see a pattern. They have only been using that floor plan for a few years.
Our choice is new and not used.

Agree, kinda......

We like that the Newmar runs in Freghtliner
Also like the ISL offered on the DS.
All 3 are good manufacturers

I agree with this but I think #1 and #2 can be interchanged although I think at the top end, Newmar out does Entegra by a bit. Winnebago is not there with their Tour and Monaco? I dont think they are even in the top three.

If all I wanted was a the coach as it sat there with no customization then Entegra makes a good rig.
If you want stuff moved around or deleted then go with Newmar, they will customize where ever they can. On our 2002 Dutch Star we had two walls and a pocket door removed and substituted a different bath vanity. Of course they charged extra for it but we got what we wanted.

Well the King Aire costs some $200,000+ more than a Cornerstone. The London Aire is Newmars answer to the Cornerstone.

The Monaco is off our list.

We are leaning heavily towards the American Coach. It hits ALL of our points.

We will see what Newmar has to say next weekend.

That's exactly what I meant, Newmar out does Entegra at the top end. Also, I change my mind, I would ad american coach to the list in place of Tiffin. I really like the direction they are headed.

Cranemec,
Your profile shows you're in GA., don't know what your time frame is, but maybe a trip next Jan. to the Tampa Super Show would be a good investment in your time. Or a trip over to PPL in Texas to walk through all the many consigned coach's they have. www.pplmotorhomes.com has a lot of pictures of what's available, or just to show you the many different layouts.

I will add that for us it was the floor plan and the percieved value of what we got for the price we paid. We had bought a year old coach 8 mo earlier that appeared to have not been used by previous owner. We also wanted new and bought new this time and are very happy with our choice.

Our 2015 Tiffin Allegro Bus has had a lot of quality control issues we are now looking at the Entegra Aspire and Newmar Dutch Star.

All Entegras have jacks. The Cornerstone has air levelling in addition to jacks.

To update. We chose American Coach. We looked at Entegra and while the quality was outstanding, they didn't put a whole lot of thought into layout and Floorplan.
Newmar did not impress us at all.
We are anxiously waiting until tomorrow. We are looking at a 2015 new, still on the dealers lot 42G Tradition. It hits all of our points.
