These will all be comparisons to my 14 not other brands, makes or models.
My 14 was a problem coach. The way that Entegra took care of the problem after the sale was unbelievable and brought me back for the second purchase. That warranty period was for 2 years instead of one. At the end of that 2 years Entegra had made that coach perfect in every way. In some ways the management changes have been good and the old management is now at NIRVC so nothing has been lost.
I did a lot of mods on the 14 as did many other owners. There is a sticky at the top of the page that show those mods. Entegra listened to the owners and their ideas....many of those mods and improvements are on the 19. I have very little upgrading to to.
The 19, perfect paint, the 14 was unacceptable. Wiring is much neater and easier to trace. No air leaks, the 19 is air tight, both chassis and wind noise.
The digital dash is fantastic. All of the feature we are use to in a luxury car are now in our MH and them some. Nice to be able to see how many gallons of fuel have been used instead of guessing.
The Vega Touch being up-gradable via wifi is unbelievable. If there is a slight operation glitch, check for an update, download it and the glitch is normally gone. A 30 second fix plus the wifi app on a phone lets me monitor the coach from home. One of the upgrades that pushed me forward over the earlier versions. That and the digital dash.
Overall fit and finish are much nicer on the 19, no loose or sticking up floor tiles.
I have had two vendor items that did not work correctly. One was the 1/2 bath toilet, a new one was sent ..... replaced in less time than unhooking to travel to a dealer. The second was the 12v side of the basement freezer did not work. New freezer shipped, plug and play. CS has been fantastic, no dealer approval for replacement parts.
The cut backs I do not care for are the cheap cabinet draw slides, those I will probably change and something Entegra needs to take a look at.
Spending time in both manufactures coaches with how you use a coach is important. If the entertainment center is the important feature, compare both of them. If cooking is the height of the day, compare the appliances and layout. Mine is outside so the larger basement compartments was an up factor for me.
Just my experience, others may vary.
