We get our Anthem this spring and will be full-timing in it starting this summer.

We have been fulltiming for nearly 20 years. When the Entegra gets here, we will continue our fulltiming lifestyle in it. Looking forward to it!

Not full timing, and have not received our Entegra yet, but we did own the earlier version of the Entegra for 10 years. The quality of the construction, the components that Entegra installs, the insulation probably makes it one of the best MH to full time with on the market. Our earlier Entegra was 11 years old when we sold it and still looked brand new. That was quality construction and why we have ordered another one.

Yes...We've been on the road in our 13 Anthem DEQ for 14 months and loving it. We put 12000 miles on our coach first year and traveling through the better half of the US East of the Rockies. Wrapping up 4th month in FL (and surely didn't miss the cold and snow North) and getting ready to head West at the end of the month.

By this summers end, we will have spent a month around Southern UT/NV and in wine country in CA as well as Yosemite, a month on the OR coast, 10 days in Banff, and a month in Northwestern WY (Yellowstone and Titons).

While the coach may certainly be a depreciating asset, the enjoyment of this lifestyle is not. We basically couldn't agree on where to retire, now we have all the locations.

Should have mentioned...the coach has performed well in all temps (great insulation), a little snow, heat and humidity. The Anthem is is great ride and drive with the weight and IFS. The choice, for us, of all electric, was the right choice. We've primarily stayed in campgrounds, but the coach works well for boon docking and dry camping on the road. The ONLY bad day in the first 14 months was a day of 40-45 mph cross and on the nose winds, with snow, dust, and rain. Should have stayed in the park.

We ordered our Anthem DEQ for full timing. House is sold, we are in a rental home and waiting patiently (for now) for the delivery, most likely early June.

Like Bill, We are fulltimers but just four years. We traded a 40' DP for our Aspire last August at Orlando RV and are quite pleased with the coach's features. Our upcoming spring/summer travel schedule will be more places throughout the Midwest and middle South. Maybe in the fall we'll head West and do some winter stays in south Texas.

That's neat...I, OTOH, dreamed about Alternative Minimum Tax, and I probably won't have to pay it this year for the first time in 12 years...of course, I had no earned income this last year I hope...I hope...I hope...no AMT, no AMT, no AMT, as i watch the gold watch move back and forth in front of my eyes...can I really be hypnotized.
