2016 Allegro bus chassis

Tech says chassis is bent, Tiffin says it is not but didn't look at it in repair bay. Just looked at cargo doors and said to replace hinges on door. I don't think feel good about what they did. Still under warranty. How do they fix chassis or should I sell/trade for a new bus? Resale value?
Thanks, Clemson2017

Nothing happened, the cargo doors on D/S would not open unless you pulled down on them and then they would hit slide out. When I went to get that fixed, I was told chassis was bent.

Does not sound like a chassis issue to me. On my Phaeton if I get out of level or twisted I can have interference DS main slide to top of compartment doors. But normally have 1-2" of clearance. If occurs when you are well leveled I would think a slide adjustment or slide problem exists.

Unless you did something really stupid with the coach, your frame is not bent. Was your coach leveled when this tech gave you the news?

Problems with cargo door alignment are easily corrected by adjustments to the door hinges. If you want to get this corrected, either take it to Red Bay or call Tiffin and ask for a recommendation for someplace to take that is closer to your home.
