Article Date: May, 2017

Interior

/articlepics/81_Anthem44F_image-21.jpg

The interior of the Anthem is impressive. From the backlit ceiling feature to the porcelain tile floors every aspect exudes a look and feel of quality. Ultra-leather furniture, solid surface countertops and dinette and residential grade appliances and fixtures make this coach well appointed. The edge of each fixed counter-top is equipped with backlit dimmable LED lighting. This particuylar coach was finished in the Butterscotch interior decor, which is one of four available interiors, and natural cherry hardwood cabinetry and woodwork.

Patio-side super slideout

Driver-side slideout

The patio-side super slide holds the couch, dinette, large residential refrigerator and pantry. The slideout features a flush floor when extended and a small partition separates this slide from the bedroom vanity slide. This gives the look of a full wall slide without compromising the structural integrity of the coach. The dinette faces your patio rather than looking at your sewer hookup while dining. The driver-side slideout holds a hide-a-bed sofa with air mattress. A 50" 4K LED Smart TV is located behind the couch on a power lift. The TV can be raised for viewing or lowered to afford a view out the large window. The galley is also located in this slideout.

The galley features an angled stainless steel dual basin sink to afford more counter space. A Whirlpool convection microwave oven is located in the overhead cabinetry while a Fisher-Paykel dishwasher drawer is located in the lower portion. A Furion induction cooktop is fitted into the solid surface countertop and a pull-out extension offers additional work space when extended.

Extension Retracted

Extension Fully Extended

The dinette features an innovative design. The pull-out dinette table extends to afford additional dining space when parked and retracts to allow more aisle room when traveling. However, Entegra added a new feature which is an additional extension that folds down and stores beneath the table to make it even more compact, yet has a mechanism that allows the extension to pull out and snap into place for even more dining space.

An example of one of the menus in the VegaTouch system is this HVAC menu.

The Anthem is equipped with the VegaTouch multiplexed system. This system can control virtually all of the coach's major systems, such as lighting, shades, power control, entertainment center, HVAC and plumbing systems. A touch screen menu is replete with on-demand help displays to make this a very user-friendly interface. The HVAC sub-menu allows you to set the temperature and forget it. The system can be used in auto mode so that the system will automatically change between heating and cooling as the day transpires. This system also includes an app for an iPhone or iPad so that you can remotely access the system.

The bedroom holds a king bed with a Sleep Number mattress. The bed is mounted on gas struts to allow easy access to the storage area beneath the bed. Solid surface nightstands and hardwood overhead cabinets are also standard as is a ceiling fan.

The slideout opposite the bed is shared with the rear bath vanity. The bedroom are contains a larger dresser with plenty of storage and overhead cabinets that also contain a 32" LED bedroom TV. The TV is hinged to allow access to the storage and additional entertainment systems equipment, such as the standard Blu-Ray player.

The rear bath vanity features a solid surface countertop with a pair of recessed sinks. A large medicine cabinet has fold out mirrors that help to give a three dimensional view when primping.
 

The shower stall is equipped with a clear glass enclosure with hinged door and large brushed nickel grab handles. The solid surface wall panels are accented with inlaid tile. A skylight provides natural light and storage shelving in built into the angled plumbing enclosure where the residential grade shower is mounted to.

A second macerator toilet is located next to the shower and an overhead exhaust fan is also included. The entire rear bath floor remains at the same level as the rest of the coach to maximize headroom and eliminate any step-ups.
