Entegra Coach Quality

Hi, I am a new member and plan to buy a bath and 1/2 disel pusher next spring. I really like the layout and features of the 2011 Entegra Coach Anthem 42RB. I understand Entegra Coach is the sucessor to Travel Supreme and is built by the same people although now owned by Jayco. From the research done I have been able to gather that it appears that the Travel Supreme Class A DP's are execllent coaches, well built and high quality. However any information I have been able to locate concerning Entegra Coach sort of speculates that they should be great coaches but that with the takeover by JaYCO it is too early to tell whether the high sdtandard of quality will be maintained. So I am hoping to get comments from owners of Entegra Coach Class A dp'S 2009, 2010, etc as to the construction quality, service quality from the manufacturer, issues identified, overall satisfaction or not with the coach purchased. Can anybody help me?

Thanks,

Bill

Bill, The Anthem was on our short list, but we settled on the Fleetwood Revolution LE. The Anthem is a very nice coach, but the only thing it has that the Revolution does not is the independant front suspension. We liked the construction of the Revolution, our all electric coach will come with 8 AGM batteries, and the full wall slide opens up the interior like you can't believe. The 2011 Revolution has a lot of standards that were options on the 2010s, so don't count on what you can find on-line (they have not updated the site to 2011 yet) as being acurate. In fact, there are very few options when you order a 2011 Revolution. As the ad says, "it's in there!".

An Anthem comparably equiped to the Revolution we ordered would have an MSRP of almost $40k more. Even with a 25% discount, we did not feel it worth anywhere near the difference.

Broaden your horizons. You may be happy you did.

Thanks Jay,

We do plan to visit a dealer and tour and test drive each of these two coaches and maybe a couple of others. The Anthem also has a great insulation package from what I understand. As regards the price difference we also plan to go the all electric coach route and while the MSRP difference between the two coaches is in excess of $47,000 the net difference after discounts is right now about $18,000. We acquired two comparison guides, one by JD Consumer and one by RV.ORG. Neither one, in my view, dealt adequately with the Entegra Coach to get a feel for that coach as compared to othersa and that is why I am hoping to obtain some information from users as to how their experience with Entegra Coach is going.

I haven't hear much (either good or bad) about the Entrgras, so I can appreciate your concern. However, I would consider a slightly used late model Travel Supreme. Granted you will not get the coach waranty, but all the big ticket items are still covered by the manufacturers (CAT, Cummins, Spartan, etc) and you will avoid the initial depreciation, whch can be significant. Good luck with your search.
