Default 2021 Ethos Entegra Class B+

We have been looking at the 2021 Ehtos Entegra Class B+ online. It appears to be a well equipped RV. LaMesa has one for 89K. Does anyone out there own one?

Your link appears to show a larger traditional B, not a B+, unless my eyes are cheating me. Are you looking at the twin bed layout? (The other has a serious logistical flaw in that you have to stow the bed to use the galley. It appears to be more of an enhanced travel van than a true camping van.)

Rear baths are typically roomier and make for a space efficient layout, but they also make the rear cargo doors less useful for views and access to storage. We have a rear bed with storage under. My wife loves to use it as a day lounge with the doors open wide. I like accessing my tools without going in and out of the camper.

I know nothing of the company or build quality, and I didn’t look closely at the mechanical and electrical specifications.

We are looking at the twin bed version and an enhanced van for travel.

Yes, the twin bed model could double as an enhanced travel van (by which I meant day use only with onboard toilet and eating). But only for two people.

The other seats four for travel, but really isn’t well-suited for overnight camping.

Jayco took over Entegra in 2008, but it doesn't mention the fact that Jayco has since been taken over by Thor. While Jayco had a good reputation, Thor does not.

The twin model is the same floor plan as Winnebago Travato. I would compare the two carefully. Winnebago is probably a more dependable company at this point, and this is the first year for Entegra to make a Class B. They have been Class A builders mainly. (I gleaned this from the website)

At least one person on the Thor Sequence & Tellaro O&W FB page has an Ethos. There are few threads over there about it.

It is definitely a Class B, based on Promaster 3500. It is very similar to the Thor L/LT floorplan (also Travato K, Coachmen Nova RB, etc...) but it is made in an Entegra plant in Middlebury IN, not terribly far from the Thor plant that makes the Sequence & Tellaro. Also see this forum thread: https://www.classbforum.com/forums/f...lan-11429.html

It seems that the Ethos comes only in one exterior color.
