Allegro Open Road Purchase

We are looking at a 2010 Allegro Open Road 32' to purchase trading in our 2004 Allegro Bay 37DB. Reason...want to downsize. Anyone own the Allegro Open Road? Pro's/Con's, advice. Your experience shared would be appreciated. We like Tiffin quality and think that going up several years would insure a coach that will last for another 5-8 years.

Don't think you can go wrong with a used Tiffin or Newmar gasser (for Newmar - stick to the Canyon Star) - really like both manufactures. Good luck.

Make sure your Open Road is a 2012 or later. The suspension is rated at 24000 as apposed to earlier models which are 22000 pounds.

We bought a 2012 Allegro Open Road 2 weeks ago. Only in it a few days in Florida and then drove home. Seems to drive fine. We went from a B+ Forest River Lexington 283GTS, so for us it has more room. Still learning about it, but like everything so far. Dave

The 32CA is on a 22,000 lb chassis (which is more than enough for this model) for all years of production. We stuffed ours full and couldn't get anywhere close to 22,000 lbs even with full tanks.

The 24,000 lb chassis is now standard on the 34, 35, and 36 ft models but in 2012 it was only standard on the 36 LA model and possibly the 35.

I agree, 22k is more than enough for a 32' rig.

We really liked our '07 Open Road. It was probably the most trouble free new RV we'd ever bought. The only problem I can remember (I suspect there were more, just not significant enough to come to mind) was the dash pad cracked, twice. Third time was the charm - they'd obviously changed the plastic compound by then - we never had another problem, right up to the day we traded it for our "retirement home".

Upcoming Purchase

Thanks to everyone for your comments! We are proceeding with purchase negotiations. I am aware of the 22,000 lb. gvwr on the 2010. It is the same on the 2004 Allegro Bay 37DB that we have been driving and have not had any problems. I appreciate so much the immediate responses from folks here at irv2 forums. It is a great help when you need some information. Happy Trails...

I have an '07 Allegro 32BA. Bought it new and have not had anything bothersome to talk about. Other than the usual maintenance things which are more Ford related, I have been extremely happy. Just looked at a new 31SA the other day and I'm starting to get that urge much to my wife's dismay. I really like the interior layout on that model.

Is there a difference between an Allegro and an Allegro Open Road? Just noticed it has a separate listing

I used to own a 2004 Allegro 32BA. It was called simply an "Allegro". Now I own a 2012 Allegro "Open Road" 34TGA. It's basically the same entry level Tiffin now as it was in 2004. IMHO, the reason TMH calls it an Allegro Open Road so it's a different name than the Allegro Breeze and Allegro Bus lines of diesel pusher coaches.
