Designed for all seasons and road conditions, the Entegra Anthem will take you anywhere you want to go — across the street or across the continent — and it will get you there in style.

With eight floorplans to choose from, we decided to explore the Entegra Anthem 44DLQ. It has a gross vehicle weight of 49,000 lbs. and a gross combined weight of 64,000 lbs. Its front gross axle weight is 17,000 lbs. and rear gross axle weight is 20,000 lbs. For measurements, the 44DLQ has an exterior length of 44’11”, exterior width of 101”, exterior height with A/C and satellite of 155”, and an interior height of 84”. For liquids, the Entegra Anthem 44DLQ has a fresh water capacity of 95 gallons, grey waste water capacity of 49.75 gallons, black waste water capacity of 49.75 gallons and fuel tank capacity of 150 gallons.


 
Built with the latest technology, the 2015 Entegra Anthem 44DLQ can attribute its strength to its careful construction. X-Bridge frames are welded into the chassis. The floors feature 2” by 4” floor truss construction and plywood main floor decking.  The floors are also enclosed, insulated and heated. The sidewalls are bolted to the chassis frame structure and exterior walls have a smooth high-gloss, gel-coat fiberglass exterior. The Anthem is equipped with 2 chassis batteries and a 10-gallon DEF tank. The Allison 3000 MH 6-speed transmission gives you power; the side-mounted radiator gives you convenience; and automatic traction control gives you peace of mind.

The most important room in any Class A is the driver’s lair. Comfortable drivers are safe drivers, and Entegra has created a cockpit that combines comfort and safety. The driver and passenger can sit back in their power-adjustable Ultraleather seats, which feature integrated 3-point lap and shoulder safety belts. The Spartan Message Center comes with an LCD display and has many features including an odometer, tachometer, instantaneous fuel economy, service reminders and more.  To keep your passengers entertained, the cockpit comes with a touch-screen AM/FM/CD/DVD with Rand McNally GPS navigation and Bluetooth. Your passengers will be most excited about the 32” Samsung LED HDTV. For your own entertainment, the Anthem comes with JBL premium sound dash speakers, and a Sirius radio and tuner.

When you’ve clocked out from your driving duties, head to your luxurious living room. The decorative satin nickel lighting creates a warm ambience, along with the individually operated, power day/night solar roller shades. The padded and decorated vinyl ceiling creates a perfect contrast with the cabinetry, which comes in Glazed Cherry. Sit back on one of the Ultraleather sofas and turn on the 46” LEDHDTV. If you prefer a quiet night in, then read your favourite book in front of the electric fireplace. With ample seating, you can entertain guests and host parties with ease.

Road trips don’t always mean that you have to give up on home-cooked meals. The Entegra Anthem kitchen is equipped with modern amenities that will make cooking easy — even with an extra chef in the kitchen. It comes with a flush-mounted, electric 2-burner cooktop, Samsung convection microwave oven, and Samsung 23 cu. Ft. refrigerator, equipped with an icemaker and water dispenser. The sink features a high-rise, single-lever faucet, soap dispenser, and drinking water faucet — all in satin nickel. The stainless steel sink is surrounded by solid surface countertops. Underneath is a sink cover storage compartment. One drawer houses a wastebasket and one houses a dishwasher. Adding to the kitchen’s luxury is the high gloss porcelain tile with glass inlay design, and a porcelain tile backsplash. If there are two chefs in the kitchen, one can use the pullout cabinet extension.

Next, let’s explore the bathroom. Walk through the 2-panel residential-style solid hardwood passage doors and find yourself in one of the best RV bathrooms on the market. The high gloss porcelain tile comes with decorative inserts, while the porcelain toilet comes with a convenient push-button flush. The large porcelain tile shower comes with both a light and a skylight. The space features two sinks, which means that family members no longer have to fight to brush their teeth. The bathroom even has a private, enclosed toilet. Toiletries can be stored in the medicine cabinet and towels can be folded in the linen closet.

When you’re ready to recharge, escape to your bedroom. The king-sized bed sits between two nightstands. The decorative headboard and quilted bedspread add luxury to the space. Crawl under your comfortable sheets and turn on your 32” LED TV.  If you prefer reading before bed then turn on your satin nickel LED reading lights. You can store your clothes in the large cedar-lined wardrobe, and when they’re too dirty to wear, throw them in the wash. Yes, the bedroom is equipped with a washer/dryer, which means that you will never again have to search for a Laundromat.

The 2015 Entegra Anthem 44DLQ sells for around $440,000. For more information visit: http://www.entegracoach.com/
