Winnebago Forza M36G vs Tiffin Allegro Breeze

Hello folks.
I have been reserching newer/used Deisel engine RVs for a while now and THINK i have narrowed it down to two coaches. The Winnebago Forza 36G and The Tiffin Allegro breeze. Both seem to be of high quailty, but does anyone have any positive or negative experiance with these rigs? Are there any common issues that i might specifically look for when evaluating these options?
I appreciate any insight you might provide.
JB

We live our 2016 Forza 36 G. We have had no issues at all.

Up to the 2017 model year, the Breeze used the Maxxforce 7 engine from International. If the Breeze you are interested in is pre-2017, I'd suggest some serious research on that engine before you make a decision.

Thank you. It would be 2017 or newer.

I'm no expert but the Alergro Breeze seems quite small when you look at the specs. 19.5 tires. 275HP. 6'6" ceiling height. 24,500 GVWR. 7'7" interior width. 94 cuft of exterior storage space. $260k.

The Forza looks to be quite a bit roomier on paper with quite a bit more power and storage. 22.5 tires. 340HP. 6'8" ceiling height. 27,910 GVWR 8'.5" interior width. 222 cuft of exterior storage space. $225k.

The Breeze seems more like a weekend RV. I think you could actually live in the Forza. Heck my 16 year old Suncruiser has as much exterior storage space as the Breeze.

Can't speak for the Tiffin, but we love our Forza 34T.

These are good points^^.


It's really going to depend on how you plan to use your MH. The Breeze is smaller, all around, as that was the design intention. Seeing a Breeze parked next to a full-size class A will make the difference very clear. If that works for you, then keep it in consideration.

I first owned two new Winnebagos, then bought a new Tiffin. Now have a new Winnebago again. As you can see, I like Winnebagos!

But, want to say my four years of Tiffin ownership were great! Tiffin is super good and easy to work with on things that require attention.

My recommendation is to choose the rig, Winnebago or Tiffin, with the floor plan that fits you.

I think the Tiffin Red compares more closely to the Forza than the Breeze. Both fine coaches. Good luck on your search.

The Breeze has independent front suspension. It also uses the air bags to level.

Comparable Coaches to the Winnebago Forza

As I had stated, I am narrowing down my coach selections. Does anyone recommend a DP motorhome in that same pricepoint that has similar features, quality and floorplan as the Winnebago Forza? I have looked at many other coaches and my "co-pilot" insists on the U-shaped dinette table.

If I were you I would drive both. Check floor plan. You are on a WGO thread, did you post on the Tiffin site. You will get positive feed back from each site. The Breeze uses a Cummings V8, it is also used in pickups. Less HP but it is smaller. That is why you need to drive both.

Is the Forza a straight axle non IFS?

The Forza is based on the Freightliner XCS Chassis with the 340hp Cummins ISB 6.7L motor.
