Put down a deposit on an Accolade 37TS

Today we viewed a Thor Magnitude VS34 and an Entegra Accolade 37TS. After sitting in the Magnitude we decided it was not for us. We then viewed the Accolade, which is a new Super C introduced by Entegra. For us it punched the tickets and I enjoyed the test drive. The test drive was 10 miles on a US Highway (speed limit 35 and 45) and 15 miles on I95 (speed limit 65). The coach handled great with no sway from trucks. It does have a little body roll going around corners but it is nothing compared to the Challenger.

A couple if issues to work with the dealer such as trade allowance etc... and then we will set a delivery date. I have also asked the dealer for quotes on the installation of TOGO or WiFi Ranger, Mobile Eye and 2 solar panels.

The coach has a GVWR of 29,000 and GCWR of 41,000. It has a 12K hitch installed so it can tow just about anything.

Went to buy a fuse and the dealer threw in an RV. Most expensive fuse I ever bought.

Sounds like the time I went to a Chevrolet dealer to get a jacket that my dad wanted, and came home with a car, but no jacket.

The last time for me was a set of tires for the Sunseeker and the dealer threw in the Challenger.

Wow congratulations.

Now, if need be, you can tow that back hoe around with you.

No back hoe but with 5K of CCC the DW can load up to her heart's content.

that's quite a Freightliner 'truck' !

very nice, quite heavy, but also a lot of 'heavy lifting' with that GVCWR and 12klb hitch : )

Actually Entegra is a part of the Thor Family. They're even mentioned on the Forum Splash page in the groupings.

Close to trigger pull (98 percent there) on the Accolade. The dealer came back with estimates for the following
  • Mobileye installation
  • Winegard Connect 2.0 4g LTE Installation
  • Solar panel (380 watts) installation Will replace the stock controller to allow expansion up to 760 watts

Just a couple of minor issues and a delivery date will be set. The above items will be installed prior to delivery.

Added one additional item to the quote list and they came back with a decent estimate to add a wind sensor to the awning. We have an appointment with the dealer for tomorrow and if all is well after one more sitting we will sign the purchase agreement. The DW wants to sit inside it for another 15 minutes to make sure it still "feels right or us". We are still talking about a delivery date of Sept 28.

We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

Just talked to the dealer about the Accolade. Right now everything is still a go for a Saturday delivery.

It came back from the alignment shop yesterday. I mentioned during the road test that I felt some vibration and a slight pull in the front end at 65mph so they sent it in for alignment and tire balancing. Turns out Entegra pays for the alignment and balancing if an issue is noted or mentioned during the test drive. After the test drive it is on the owner.

To be honest I believe the slight pull was road crown and vibrations were pavement surface but I am not 100 percent certain. Only the alignment shop can tell.

According to the salesman as of yesterday the only thing remaining is installing the awning wind sensor module.

Apparently the Carefree add-on wind sensor module does not work with the Firefly Command Center and to install the sensor would mean installing separate controls for the awning. Carefree says they are working on a compatible module but it is still 6 months from completion.

I am having them install Maxx Air vent covers as well.

We are a go for a 1:00 PM Saturday PDI. Had to change to afternoon because of the grandson's soccer game.
