Road Test

Once we were thoroughly acquainted with the Cornerstone and its features and controls it was time to hit the road. The 600hp Cummins ISX was a whole new experience and the Cornerstone quickly came up to speed. With 1,950 lb-ft of torque, losing speed when climbing a grade is a thing of the past. The disc brakes on all three axles easily hauled the coach to a stop.

Maneuverability was excellent. It seems like all Entegra coaches handle just a bit better than the typical coach. The addition of their X frame bracing and structural upgrades just allow the suspension to do its job that much better, while still offering the smooth ride one would expect from a coach of this caliber.

The chassis stiffening, plus the wooden floor sub-structure, absorbed any jolts from potholes or vibrations from the road. The suspension did all of the work and the coach body just rode along as smooth as can be. The noise from the road was dampened by the floor structure and high levels of insulation. Clean aerodynamics, especially noticed in the flush mounted windows, further reduced any noise at highway speeds. When you combine the handling with the quiet ride that we experienced the Cornerstone is truly the benchmark that will be hard to beat.
