The ERA was previewed in Motor Coach Magazine. I was really impressed with it from the write-up and the trip they travelled and reported on for the magazine. Then I read a couple of post (unsure where) of customers who bought it and were having all kinds of problems - and the Manufacturer was less than receptive to correcting items. I would like to see the reports on this MH is about two years - it is a well designed coach. Safe travels.
