2013 Entegra Cornerstone 45K
An In-Depth Review of Entegra Coach's Flagship Motorhome
Article Date: June, 2012
The Cornerstone's interior is another area where things are kicked up a notch. While the norm in most coaches is Flexsteel
furniture with thin Ultra Leather material, the Cornerstone uses upscale Villa Natural Leather furniture. The woodwork is stellar to say the least.
All of the Amish craftsmanship was evident in every piece of cabinetry or millwork, which was fit to perfection. From the polished ceramic tile
floors to the vinyl padded ceiling, attention to detail was the order of the day.
The cockpit area is well laid out. A color monitor views the rear camera, as well as the two side-mounted cameras that auto
sequence with the turn signals. A radio/CD/GPS navigation system is located directly above. The dash is finished with burl wood panels and the
driver's side console controls the usual array of switches for the engine brake, tag axle dump, auxiliary lighting, step well cover, and power sun
The parking brake is mounted on the vertical dash to prevent pets from accidentally stepping on it and releasing the brakes.
The Spartan gauges and information center are easy to view through the fully adjustable Smart Wheel. The integral seat belts are fed through slits
in the six-way power seats, making it easy to buckle up. The Cornerstone also includes the TripTek trip computer system and a remote compass/temperature
The couch and dinette ensemble are a wrap-around design that ties the comfortable booth dinette in with the sleeper sofa.
Two large drawers beneath the booths provide additional storage space.
Our coach was equipped with Washington Glazed Cherry cabinetry and one of three decor packages. The sofa-couch, love seat,
and dinette booth were all equipped with large pull-out drawers to maximize interior storage space. The love seat on the passenger side can be
replaced with an optional desk and recliner or dual recliners if desired.
A mirrored cabinet mounted to the exterior wall in the guest bath contains various environmental
controls as well a fuse panel for the various 12 volt circuits.
A mid-ship entertainment center cabinet holds a 40" LCD TV, satellite receiver, DVD player and other
entertainment gear. An electric fireplace adds a bit of ambiance and also provides for additional interior heat.
Entegra galley layouts vary from floorplan to floorplan but every galley area will have hardwood cabinets and Corian solid
surface countertops with a porcelain tile backsplash. High end appliances and Price-Pfister faucets are used. The Fisher-Paykel dishwasher is trimmed
with a custom made panel. A convenient pull-out work area adds additional space for food preparation and is located next to the Whirlpool residential
refrigerator. This 21 cu ft unit features an an-door ice dispenser and filtered water dispenser and is powered through one of the two Magnum true sine
This silverware drawer is typical of Entegra cabinetry. Every drawer features heavy metal drawer
slides and hardware. This particular silverware drawer featured a sliding top section that exposes additional storage beneath. The
silverware tray can be removed by simply lifting it out
Alongside the Fisher-Paykel dishwasher that is mounted beneath the galley is a large pull-out shelf
unit with an integral wastebasket and holder
The guest bath is located mid-ship and features a vanity with recessed sink as well as a water closet
in an enclosed room.
Immediately opposite the hall is a cabinet with louvered doors that house the stackable washer-dryer.
Trips to the campground laundry are a thing of the past with the Cornerstone
The bedroom's king bed holds a Select-Comfort air mattress and is flanked by solid surface nightstands. Multiplex lighting
controllers are located on the wall and in the overhead cabinet to provide convenient access to lighting controls. The bedroom is separated from the
rear bath and front hall and bath by sliding pocket doors that utilize pneumatic solenoids to lock in place whenever the parking brake is released
to prevent slamming when traveling.
Opposite the bed, a slideout contains overhead cabinetry which also holds an LED TV. The lower Corian topped dresser contains
storage drawers as well as a clothes hamper.
The spacious rear bath layout places a vanity in the passenger side slideout. The mirror is
attractively decorated but there are no hinged makeup wings nor is there a medicine cabinet
The driver side rear bath contains a circular shower surround with clear glass to accent the ceramic tile inside
The rear bath is a slight step up from the bedroom. The attractive porcelain tiled shower area is surrounded by a circular glass
shower enclosure with sliding circular doors that operate in tracks rather than swing out and drip on the floor. A macerator style commode is mounted
to the porcelain bath flooring. The rear of the bath gains access to the full width rear wardrobe. Opposite the shower is a solid Granite vanity with
dual sinks. An enclosed water closet next to the shower handles those necessary tasks. At the rear of the coach is a full-width aromatic cedar lined
wardrobe with cavernous storage. The wardrobe doors also utilize the pneumatic lock cylinders to hold them in place when traveling.
