'07 Bus...is Aqua Hot std or an option?

I'm wondering if Aqua Hot was an option in the Tiffin Allegro Bus, or a standard feature in them all? Looking at the '07 - 08' model years and believe the Aqua Hot to be an option I'd like to have, albeit I'm unsure if one comes up with a good deal on one without, if it's worthwhile to purchase? Living in south western Canada, and some winters can get pretty cool, albeit I'd be heading south at some point most winters!
What are the roof options....rubber and fiberglass, or just fiberglass on the '07 bus?
Would be nice to know all the differences in these two years, if anyone knows of a website? What is the cost of a set of Michelin tires for a 40' unit as well, as I'm assuming it would be upwards of $4K?

Any specifics to watch for on these particular years? I realize tires & batteries are minimum along with good maintenance, but any pointers would sure help!

Appreciate it...thanks.

Not sure if the tires on a 40' bus are the same size as those on our 43', but I just paid $860/tire for 8 new Michelin 295/80R22.5.

Did you use the FMCA Advantage program? I paid $689.33 each for 4 365/70's and $653.83 each for 4 315/80's using it, Federal excise tax, mounting and balancing were extra. Actual total cost was higher as I also had all the internal SmarTire sensors replaced and the monitor unit reprogrammed.

there a option;; the lpg furnace systems and the lpg hot water tanks work just as good.I have a aqua hot in my 2008 and a friend has a 2009 with standard furnace and hot water system and works just as well
lots of problems with 2007 2008 2009 units with sagging wet bays an cracked roof radius rails and bad(weak) slide floors
inspect any u look at and run the serial number with tiffin they will confirm
if the work was done or needs to be done
the 2014/15/16 units are made way way better than the older ones
also don't buy Michelin tires buy toyo or continental at around $250 per tire cheaper and as good or better tires (what I did)
