I would imagine many of you have already been down this path. Here are the KEY (and for me - critical) differences...some good some bad.
For actual owners, please let me know if I have the data incorrect or, if there are after-market work-arounds.
I'm looking at the Super Class C's due to safety and drivability over many of the Class A's. I know that's a separate conversation....but for me, that's why I'm looking.
Accolade --- Dynamax Force 37ts
Freightliner S2RV - M2 106
360HP / 800 lb-ft - 375HP / 1050 lb-ft
House Batteries: 4 - House Batteries: 2 (Yikes!)
Inverter: 2KW - Inverter: 2.8KW
Refrig: 21cf - Refrig: 16cf. *********yikes
Full Electric - Propane range
The propane is somewhat appealing due to the benefit of boon docking. However, you could carry a propane cooker and cook outside.
The chassis is clearly the big deal. However, if you towing a rather normal size toad, maybe doesn't make a big difference.
Also huge is the 2 year warranty with Entegra. Huge!
I don't see tpms on either but after-market prob fixes that.
I don't see lockable basement compartments. Not sure if after-market fixes that.
If you are just towing a jeep Cherokee....do you care if you are on a S2Rv vs a M2 chassis?
Go with the floor plan and features that you like the best. You can purchase a year warranty for not much $, that’s not a big deal.
The Force likely has an 8.9L Cummins ISL whereas the Entegra has a 6.7L Cummins ISB. The ISL will have an actual “Jake brake” like a big rig has, where the ISB just as an exhaust brake integrated into the turbo. Advantage for the ISL would be driving in hilly terrain especially while towing. You can add things like batteries etc, but you’re not going to do an engine swap.
Also the Entegra diesel pushers are actual Entegras, the Accolade is a rebadged Jayco Seneca fwiw
