Test drove American Eagle, Tiffin Zephyr and a Cornerstone
 
Lisa and I really loved the layout, colors and floorpans of the American Eagle and Tiffin Zephyr. I was dead set on the Cornerstone. We decided since I do 100% of the driving that test driving them all was the smartest way to aid in making a decision.

First let me say that I already love my Anthem, and especially Joyce and the customer service staff. They are the very best! Going into this I would need a crane to move me to another coach. After driving both, I'll need three cranes. The CS is by far the best driver. Both the Tiffing and AC drove mediocre at best. They were loud, the AC's ez drive was over boosted even at the lowest setting. The dash was high in your view. Neither took bumps or undulations well at all. The CS OTOH handled like a dream.

Lisa wants a lighter interior, so if you are watching, Entegra, please add a light wood in 21. I'll be first in line for one

Just a thought, I am sitting here after returning from the Tampa show yesterday with a 2020 Entegra brochure. I was told the colors will not be changing for 21, except for the backsplash. Is there any chance the "Tranquility" (Bathroom wood only) could be installed in the entire coach? It sure wouldn't hurt to ask Entegra face to face if you are still as the show. The decision makers are there, I spoke with them yesterday.

You are sitting there with a 2020 brochure? Are you going to trade already?

How did the AC and Tiffin drive compare to your Anthem?

Chuck, What are the improvements from 19 to 20 that would even make you “consider” buying a 20? Curious minds want to know[emoji1]

Karen has missed the hutch since we sold the Travel Supreme. I think the hutch is going to win. Thanks, Tommy and Bonnie. :thumb: :laugh:

You have a hutch in the 2019 B plan now, don't you? I thought Tommy & Bonnie showed Entegra how it could be done on their 2018 ... and Entegra started putting them in 2019. Or am I wrong?

All the talk about the HWH air ride and my out dated Hadly air ride got me thinking. :laugh:

You are correct but, Entegra didn't added it until the 20's. Bonnie showed them how they could get a broom closet in the 5 inch space next to the refrigerator. The late 20's now have a broom closet. It might be easy to have one built for any year "B" floor plan and not that expensive.
On the 20's they made the 1/2 bath smaller, about the size we had in the RBQ to make room for a full size hutch.

It is just a lot of small items and it would be a 21.

Hutch making a happy wife #1

We went from table and chairs in the TS, to a booth in the Anthem, back to table and chairs in the 19. Decided we liked the booth better for our type of use and comfort. We request a booth when we go out to dinner, same for the MH.

The new digital Valid air ride and leveling on the dash...that is nice with the digital dash readout if you are level in a camp site.

Now that I have hearing aids, being able to adjust the collision avoidance alarm. :laugh: I love the collision avoidance, but Karen said the alarm will drive me nuts now.

A window is finally being added in the kitchen behind the sink. Karen has missed that since the TS. Another nice feature is lighted sinks in the master bath, nice touch.
Having the pleasure to work with NIRVC again is another fun trip and experience :thumb: Some people will do anything to get a "free" years membership in AIM.
