Allegro 36LA with slides in...

Does anyone with a 36LA have photos or video with the slides in? Starting to consider this model for a year of fulltiming (aith cross country travel), but want to see what gets blocked in the living and bedroom areas when on the go. Thanks!

I don't have pictures but when we had our 2013 36LA nothing really got blocked when the slides were in except the rear bath. The half bath is completely access able as is the kitchen, fridge, and TV. It's tight but usable. Bed is sleepable (is that a word?) as well. You can't access the bedroom drawers as the bed is up against them. If your going to overnight in a Wallmart you'll just have to lay some clothes out ahead of time.

Here's one from front to back. As mentioned before, the path to the rear bath is blocked by the bed but everything in front is accessible. That includes the half bath.

Thanks kab449! That's what I was looking for. While searching this morning - I also just came across this posting with a lot of slides in pics! 2015 Tiffin Motorhomes 36 La, Houston TX - 113732998 - RVTrader.com

We're also considering the Thor Challenger 37GT, but that kitchen can't be accessed with the slides in.

Stay away from the Challenger. Had one six months and it nearly fell apart.

We love our 2014 36LA. As you can see in the pics, the kitchen and living room area are totally accessible, as is the front 1/2 bath. The bed blocks the path to the rear bath when the slide is in. We frequently stop and prepare lunch with the slides in while encounter yo a destination. It is a terrifically functional floorplan. The changes I have seen in the 2015 model are all excellent. We are going to update our own kitchen faucet and kitchen backsplash this summer.

new 2 rv - as we are doing our research, we have seen a lot of issues for all manufacturers, it seems a lot of it is hit and miss for most issues. We expect there will be problems we need to address with any new unit, but could you be a little more specific bout your experience? Was it just cosmetic issues or more mechanical (like slide) problems? Also, if you now have a Tiffin, could you share your thoughts on what the differences are?

We are very happy with our 36LA. We have had few problems after 10,000 miles. Everything works the way it should. Ours is a 2014. I wish we had a 2015 with Sumo springs and overhead drop down bed. Great coach! It is our first and we have learned a lot. We would still buy the 36LA even after all we've learned.

Allegro 36LA with slides in...

Very poor craftsmanship in the Thor Challenger. Had to replace most of the screws in cabinet doors that were falling off. The bedroom wardrobe doors broke in half. Front and rear caps both separated from the body. Very dark interior with few windows. By the way we had the 37kt model. Noisy ac units. The exterior compartment doors were constantly out of alignment. The toilet is located about 18 inches from the bed in the master bedroom, which is very uncomfortable for all involved. The Tiffin product hands down is a much higher end unit. Solid wood, bath and a half, lots of windows, drives and handles much better with the heavy chassis. Noise levels are considerably less. Storage space seems to be more. I hope this helps.

36 LA

We have a 2014 36 LA and love the layout. Just my wife and I but the floor plan is great. We spent Jan in Southern Alabama and the fireplace was great to take the coolness out on those cold mornings. We like the 1/2 bath, especially when traveling because it is accessible with the slides in.
The storage space in the basement in enormous (206 CuFt). We have had very few problems with our unit, just a few minor things.
It takes some time getting use to driving but the engine is good for us. Tow a Honda CR-V without any problems. I wish he gas mileage was better but we are still breaking her in. (about 5.5-6 MPG so far).
