Smile Allegro 32 BA

My wife and I are considering on getting an Allegro 32BA and would like to get feed back from owners on this RV. We have a class C Itasca Spirit 31' and are happy with the rig but is a little to small right know. Are unhappy with the results when bring back to the factory to get work done. Would like to here pro's and cons. Thank You.

We have a 2008 32BA ford, love it. Have had it for 2 years and have not had to the factory or any service center for any kind of service. Lots of room for the 2 of us and can still get it into our state campgrounds (if they stay open).

We have a 05 32BA Workhorse. From a coach stand point, we like it for just the 2 of us. However, with the brake problems that has been documented especially here on this forum, Id hesitate buying into one until the recall has been completed and what the end results will be. I personally doubt they will ever be maintenance free regardless. Drop down to the Workhorse site and read the postings there, then make up your mind.

As far as the Workhorse brake problem goes, it shouldn't be a problem on a new Tiffin coach. Tiffin uses nothing but Ford chassis's unless a customer specifically orders it.

We moved from a C class to '03 32BA a few years ago. I'm still wishy/washy on if I should have done it. The "C" was a little easier to manuver in tight spaces and had more sleeping area for my 2 kids and their friends. It was also easier to find parts or a repair facility for the smaller chassis. I lost a little fuel milage but that was to be expected. I would say if you have kids stick with the C. If not, you will love the 32BA.

I have the 32 BA but mine is a FRED. I love the front end diesel. Noise level is about the same as a gasser. I drove both. I use to have a 27 foot class C and I love the 32 BA better. The kids are grown up so most of the time it's just the DW and I. We did do a week with the daughter and granddaughter this summer and it was not issue. With the diesel I get between 10.5 and 11.5 MPG. I do not tow, but that is running the genset most of the time. The Fred and Freightliner chassis are great!

We have an 04 Allegro 32BA, W-20 purchased new. In August 2007, we experienced a major brake failure and all four calipers, ABS, two rotors were replaced. Since then, we've put 20k miles on it including a trip to Alaska this year with no more brake issues. But, when I buy my next Tiffin, it will be a Ford or diesel.

We have a Ford 2008 32LA. On a recent 2200 mile trip, to Gatlinburg, we averaged 7.3 mpg pulling a toad at about 62-63mph. So far the Ford has been great. We can have a conversation without having to yell and there is plenty of power. The local Ford dealer will do all the services which so far has been the normal maintenance.

Good luck,
RJ
