Seeking input on 2005-2008 Alegro Bus

We are shopping for a DP ..2005-2008 ..and so far really liking Tiffin. We are researching as much as we can.
1) What model year did Tiffin start installing the Cummins diesels with DEF?

I believe that 2010 was the first year of DEF. I would also start at 2006 the first year that the basement doors swing open instead of swing up.

I have a 2005 allegro bus. YOu might want to check for overheating problems with that year. The problem appears to be fixed in 2006
certain models of the tiffin have problems with overheating. As a fix freighliner replaced the hydraulic oil with motor oil. The increased pressure from the motor oil ruptured the hydraulic cooler and it had to be replaced with a stronger one. Not all units had this done. Freightliner did not issue a recall they only did that if you brought it in under warranty and they had to fix an overheating problem. Any unit you seriously look at call freightliner and ask them if this modification has been done. Other than that I love my 05 I pull a 4800 pound enclave with no problems
