I hate to say goodby...

but I just obligated myself to purchase a 2015 Entegra Anthem. Many thanks to all who have posted here. I can say w/o a doubt that I learned far more than I contributed.

It seems a little odd to be moving from a MH that is working perfectly to one where I have to go through those first few anxious months never knowing if something will fail. I had my trials and tribulation with the Berk to include a broken step, broken slide motor for the bunkhouse slide,leaking propane regulator and a hard pull to the right when delivered. I felt the alignment issue was more of a dealer or Freightliner issue. FR stepped up to the plate for the other issues. I still haven't sent them the invoice for repairing the slide but they responded quickly by sending me a new slide motor ASAP. They air freighted a step to me in Boise and had a roving tech come by to install it. Can't really complain at all. I paid for a new regulator and had it installed for less than $50.00, hardly worth bothering the factory about.

I will miss the wet bay on my coach, no one does it better. I believe I'll lose some storage and I'll miss that wide pullout. All in all it's been a positive experience.

Thanks again for the help and feeling that I belonged to this community. If anyone wants a lightly used 2014 400BH-360 let me know. You can imagine what I got for a trade.

Congrats on the Entegra Anthem! Don't leave us....you are still welcome here even with an SOB (some other brand).

No need to say goodbye. Most RV's share similar appliances, frames, slides, etc.... and you may can find the answers here.

Just cause you started a relationship with a SOB, doesn't mean you're still not family here.

We looked at one last week. Very nice. We aren't doing it but only a money thing. Where did you buy it.

MHSRV. We tried to buy one at several other dealers but mhsrv offered us $25000 more on our trade. With their latest price reduction we were in our comfort zone financially. I got the distinct impression that the other dealers didn't know much about FR or they just didn't want to trade.

This is exactly what we are looking at doing. Would you mind letting me know what you got on trade? We looked at them in April at MHSRV but I didn't take the RV in for a trade appraisal. I just assumed it would be too low.

I am considering the same as well. Are they easy to work with? I haven't read much about the Entegra. How are they for quality?? I have been looking at Newmar but they are very pricey. What was the trade worth? I have a 2012 390bh60 and was concerned it would be a very low trade value.
