Itasca/ changed my mind, now looking at a Tiffin/frt. mounted diesel ?

Have been looking at a 2007 Itasca suncruiser with three slides. 35a. Workhorse chassis. Just curious if any of you have any experience with this model and what your thoughts are on it. Particularly the slides. Good or bad. Thanks

Like Ken says, check to be sure that it has all recalls completed. That is important since the Workhorse chassis is no longer built and there were a series of them. The other thing that I would check out very carefully is the weights of this RV. Be sure that the coach weight and the GVWR leave you enough capacity to work with but if it does and things are in good condition you should do well with this RV.

Ok I have decided to pass on the winnebego itasca. Now looking at a 2008 Tiffin Allegro 34t. 15000 miles one owner. It has a Fred chassis and front Diesel engine and a Allison 6 speed trans. Everything I have read on this set up has been good. Anyone here with any experience with this.

Tiffin is in my opinion the #1 company in reputation with their owners after long term use. We loved our Tiffin and would have bought one when we went fulltime, had they had more cargo capacity at that time. Today, that problem has been solved, it seems. On the FRED, we have two friends who own Tiffin coaches built on them and both are very pleased with the unit. Of course, it is important to keep in mind that condition is everything when shopping used so a good professional evaluation is probably a wise move.

Well we have made a purchase. Will pick it up next week. 2008 Tiffen Allegro Bay. Fred with three slides. 35tsb 14k miles one owner.

Now to sell our older rv. Excited to get it home. We aren't FT but are planning on some extended stays and trips. We have just bought and rebuilt smaller home in town and in process of selling our other home and 8 acres. Plan is to have something smaller and more mangable. Basically lock up and leave.

My buddy has a FRED and likes it. The only problem with his is the fuel filler cap is at the rear of the coach so he has to be quite particular in pulling into fuel islands as he has to pull almost past the pumps to reach the filler.
