Any new Allegro 32CA owners?

I'm looking for a new Allegro 32CA owner who is willing to let me know what the weights are on there units. Interested in the curb weight on the decal inside the unit. I am trying to compare them to the 34TGA.

Thanks!

Wagon217,
Thanks but they do not have online the information I am looking for. I am looking for curb weight. This information seems to be "secret" or something as almost all of the manufactures do not publish it.
Yes, I know it varies per model with added options, but a +/- 5% number wouldn't be a bad idea. Notice in the definition "standard equipment".


Curb weight
(US English) or kerb weight (UK English) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (e.g., motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo

Hi!
We picked up a 32CA Allegro last October. I'd be glad to give you the information but I'm not sure Where to look for the decal?

The chassis info sticker should be just behind the drivers seat on the wall down low, the weights after tiffin built the rest is In the closet in the bedroom. At least this is where ours is located!

32CA Door Sticker

Windy City,

I looked at a 32CA on a dealers lot recently.

The sticker to look for is the yellow sticker on edge of the main door (not drivers door.) That sticker is the DOT carrying capacity sticker.

This 32CA had an unloaded carry capacity of 2721 lbs, making the UVW 19279 lbs. The DOT standard for weighting is supposed to be with full fuel and propane, but no water or passengers. The sticker explains what water weights, and mentions you have to aubtract water and passengers to that 2721 carry capacity.

This 32CA had all options except the 15k front air conditioner and the 7000w generator.

I noticed that the Tiffen sticker in the closet showed about 500 lbs more capacity than then door sticker when adding back in the water and four 153 lbs passengers. I've read a number of comments on forums about the lack of accuracy on the closet stickers.

But I hope the DOT sticker on the door is accurate weight, as it is supposed to be actual weight and if more than 100 lbs get added before purchasers accepts it, the sticker is supposed to be redone. (I did notice the "water weight" info on that yellow sticker listed a 50 gallon water capacity, and the 2012 Tiffin's have 70 gallon fresh water tanks.)

The yellow sticker down by the driver seat is the one that is tells you the chassis weights for axles and tires. I keep missing the one on the door... by design maybe?

Hope that helps.

We are very very comfortable in our 32CA.

According to the Tiffin website, the 32CA and the 34TGA both are listed as the same 22,000 lb GVWR, although the 34TGA has 31 cubic feet more basement storage space along with 10 more inch of overhang behind the rear axle. When we are fully loaded, including wife and I, we are getting close to the max GVWR.

34TGA has a much larger bathroom, a third slide out, but no pantry storage. Otherwise they are fairly similar.

We have a CA 2011 and we love it .We travel 6 months out of the year and we always carry to much stuff. Our CCC is around 2800lbs we travel with 1/3 water full fuel and empty holding tanks. We carry everything we need and usually weigh about 20750 lbs so most folks should have plenty of CC

I just checked and found the yellow sticker! However, like a previous member said, what was listed as the weight of water was incorrect. Therefore, the "corrected" CCC of our 2011 Allegro 32CA should be 2468 lbs.

Thanks for all the replies, I appreciate every one!
dusty, have you had your unit on a scale or is the 20750 an estimate?
I took a 34TGA for a test drive today. I was lucky enough to have some cross winds but was pleasantly surprised by how well the rig drove. The braking seemed abnormally heavy but I think its just something to get use to. Ford did a poor job on pedal placement too. Brake pedal too small and too close to the gas.
Anyway I pulled the trigger on an order for a 2012 34TGA! I would have liked to seen first hand the 32 floor plan but there wasn't one around. My local dealer told us the have only sold one in there time as a Tiffen dealer. I contacted another dealer in Wisconsin but they didn't have one either.
When I receive dealivery of my unit, I'll take it straight to the scale,(few miles from the dealer) and verify the weight.
Thanks again for the post replies!
I'm looking forward to becoming part of the Tiffen family!

Awesome! Looks great, congrats!
I see you went with the convection oven and deleted the regular oven, we are too. Since we are planning mostly weekend trips I figured we would be better off.
I noticed the "closet sheet" has the same numbers I have seen on every 34TGA. Have you put it on a scale?
