Are Entegra RVs Made In Good Quality?
When checking Entegra RV out on rvinsider.com, it seems that Entegra’s are, just like most RV brands these days, also struggling with continued quality and customer service. The last couple of years have led to a significant downturn in the RV industry.
While their overall score is a 4.2 on a 5.0 scale, the factory warranty rating is only a 3.5, which is not good at all. Customers are mostly happy with the floorplan and the driving of the Entegra. Below are some customer reviews about Entegra RVs:
“We have owned 2 5th wheels, 3 previous Class A’s and several class B Vans. We have also traveled extensively all over the US including all but 2 lower 48 states and most of the top national parks. We had been using ClassB van the past 5 years and were not traveling as much. This year we decided to jump back in, haha. We have owned big, small and in between. For our current needs (2 adults) we decided to stay smaller than some of our larger rigs. After looking at many, we decided the Integra 29F was ideal for us. We chose the bunk bed version but not to use for people. The bottom bunk carries two crates for our two dogs. This is where they ride safely going down the road ( no more dogs wanting to climb in our laps, etc.). The top bunk is now an easy storage space for bulky dry food items and misc. Stuff!!! This coach is quite nice for its price point with everything we need for long or short trips. Drives easy and comfortably. Very roomy for two and all our stuff. We have already visited friends and family all over the Eastern half of the US with zero problems so far. The coach came very well equipped with everything we need. And so far we are very satisfied. We have dry camped in friends driveways, boondocks and stayed in nice rv parks with full amenities. This coach is perfect for us, easy to drive and fully equipped. Ps. I am not a dealer or sales person!” (Bill from Florida, who owns a 2022 Entegra Coach Vision 29F on www.rvinsider.com)
David from Missouri purchased a 2022 Entegra Coach Odyssey 30z and had this to say about it: “This is the Good the Bad and ugly of the entegra Odyssey 30z! The good, the floor plan is great! We can use it with all the slides in with no problem. You can use everything in the couch with the slides in! The RV drives ok but drifts a lot, I added the Safety T Plus already and am going to out hellwig sway bar on it next. The fireplace and TV are right across from the theater seating. The table make a almost 6 foot bed big enough for 2. Now the bad!! The quality control from the factory is bad! The tv is mounted crooked, as is the mirror in the living room. The couch door is hard to close right where is does not rattle while you are going down the road! ( We would push it from the outside to get it to latch and lock it). On our second trip on our 5 month old camper the inside handle came off in my 5 foot wife’s hand so right now we can not use the door cuz it will not open! It goes to the shop in June 2022. The bedroom slide got jammed and I had to call the OEM to figure out how to reset and the funny part is they did not know where the controller was! It’s inside the drawers in the hallway. Now the ugly!! Still our 2nd trip down in southern Florida from Missouri the bedroom a/c just stopped working!! Local shop came out and could not fix it even tried replacing it with new one!!?? They said the interface board is bad and they do not have one. 3 days later still in Florida the other A/C just stopped working would not come on at all not even the fan!! So in 5 days on our 2 trip we can not get in the camper without going in the cab doors and we have had both A/C just stop working!! The Ford van itself seems to be fine but the couch has so many problems. Not last but not least the shower leaks so we could not use it it on our 10 day vacation from Missouri to Florida to see the grandkids! I still love the layout of this unit and will update this review when and if they get everything fixed and at that time will update the factory warranty / support.” (www.rvinsider.com)
There are, however, four major common problem areas that get reported frequently by Entegra RV owners:
- Alignment issues: misalignment that, if ignored, can lead to uneven wear of tires, blowouts and expensive repairs
- Power shade problems: failure of the power shade motor, leading to replacement or trip delays (if the shade cannot be retracted prior to departure)
- Window leaks: some of the window sealant fails and leads to water leaks or heat/AC loss
- Various electrical issues: these range from minor fuse issues to major repair problem with the controls.
