Go for it!

If you're looking for suggestions or help though, you'll need to be a little more specific?

People seem to love their Entegra's! I think Jayco hit the ground running in '10 with some solidly different interiors and it's just been off and away from there. We've certainly looked at em.

The seem mostly trouble free, which is a bonus, although some early issues existed - but from everything I have read, Entegra is on the ball with help.

Welcome to the irv2 gang! Glad you decided to get started now. We started our search a year before we chose our set of wheels. Enjoy the hunt for that special one.
