What would you purchase ?

Silly question, when you think about all the RVs (Ruined Vacations you've had), what coach would you purchase knowing what you know today, Gas, Diesel, 4 slides, 2 slides, big HP, bath & 1/2, input would be appreciated.

I would love to be able to trade in our Entegra Insignia for the Entegra Anthem, 2020 version, with propane Aquahot instead of Diesel Aquahot. Anthem has more horsepower, and little more spacious inside than the Insignia.

Our ‘17 Entegra Insignia, DP, 4 slide, “non smart” coach has served us VERY well. It has the propane 400D Aqua Hot which adds having to deal with propane, but lessens the annual service and we hardly ever have issues with it and serves our purposes in SE Georgia very nice (was fine in CO as well just used a lot of propane). BTW…we have been full time in the coach for 4+ yrs.

We’ve enjoyed having a bath and a half. Kind of like having a “his” and “hers”.

Had a blast for years in a pop up. Then many years in a gas Monaco.
But we have never had a trip in either Cornerstone that has not been fun.

I am happy with what we have until we are ready for another one.

We spend about half a year in our coach total so we like big. If we could get a 50 ft coach we would.

Interesting question Angelo!

Amy & I have owned the following motorhomes, all of which were purchased new:

1) 1999 Fleetwood Bounder, Class A, Ford chassis, Ford V10 gas engine. 32 feet long, no slides, single bath.

2) 2004 Alfa SeeYa, Class A, Freightliner chassis, Cat 330 diesel engine. 38 feet long, two slides, single bath.

3) 2007 Winnebago Vectra, Class A, Freightliner chassis, Cummins L series diesel engine. 40 feet long, two slides, single bath.

4) 2010 Tiffin Allegro Bus, Class A, Tiffin PowerGlide chassis, Cummins L series diesel engine. 40 feet long, four slides, bath & a quarter.

5) 2018 Entegra Cornerstone, Class A, Spartan chassis, Cummins X series diesel engine. 45 feet long, four slides, bath & a half.

6) 2022 Newmar Super Star, Super C, Freightliner chassis, Cummins L series diesel engine. 41 feet long, three slides, single bath.

Six different motorhomes and a variety of configurations!

If I’ve learned anything it’s that every motorhome ever built is full of trade-offs, and what appeals to one owner will not necessarily appeal to a different owner. For example, our current Newmar Super C drives really good on curvy roads and in windy conditions, but its ride is noticeably less “cushy” than the Class A diesels we’ve owned. Think sports car versus luxury car.

I really like the drivability of our Super Star and I’m willing to accept a firmer ride to get better handling, but I’m well aware that I’m in a distinct minority.

Short version: Buy what works for and appeals to YOU!

We have had a 2020 Entegra Reatta XL and it was excellent with very few problems of which none of them prevented us from going camping. We currently have a 2021 Entegra Anthem and really enjoy it, yes like most we have had a few minor issues again which have never stopped us from camping.

If we had to do it all over again, I would have gone for the Corner Stone as my first choice followed by an Anthem.

Larry is a wise man, and his conclusion is that it all depends, and that is exactly right. What someone else wants and values. is meaningless for you. The only thing that matters is what is meaningful to you and yours. Other's opinions are worthless expenditure of energy!

I would look at units that fit your future lifestyle. That’s what we’ve been doing the last two years knowing our DP days are going to be behind us in the next few years.
We won’t give up traveling in an rv, but the “how we travel” is going to better fit our goals and needs.

Thank You All for your input

As you stated it's a matter of preference, I totally agree, it's kinda like House Boating on Lake Shasta in Northern Ca, we did that for 22 years, two house boats, 4 ski boats and 9 jet ski's, thanks for your inputs, were thinking of sizing down after we travel back east, 1st the southern route then the northern route, thanks again for your input, Angelo

We had lots of great memories in our Fleetwood Discovery 39V. The coach never let me down. Was relatively easy to work on. We actually lived in it for 3 months when we were building our new house and our existing one sold within a week. Lots of beach trips with it when my son was just a toddler. It had 2 slides. There were five big things that I came to dislike the more I used it... 1. It needed a second bath or 1/2 bath. I was always fighting to use it in a time of need! 2. I hated working on the engine - rear radiator style - it provided minimal access. Just changing the belts were a chore which required two people. 3. The RV was slightly dated and I wanted something more modern. 4. It only had 2 AC units. It struggled to keep up in Texas heat at 90+. I could only maintain about 75f until it cooled in the evening. 5. The rig sway fairly bad in high winds.

The Entegra Aspire 42 filled just about every void that the Fleetwood was lacking.... and much more. We've enjoyed much longer trips in this unit.

Had gas coaches my entire life. First RV I remember was a 1968 Traveco, I think that was the year/model.

Presently have my first DP, I do not see going back to gas anytime soon.

I really like Newmar’s Mountain Aire, we were close to going with their 40ft coach, 4118 I think was the floor plan. They now offer a 38ft ft tag coach, 525HP however having windows that do not open is a no for me. I would love Entegra to make a sub 40ft quad slide tag coach with windows that open, 605HP & 20k LB towing. At times I feel going with a 40ft coach or shorter might open up a few more campgrounds for us however we are presently looking for a newer cornerstone 45W
