Your thought on an 2010 Allegro bus 43QGP

We attended an RV show this past weekend and was intending in trading for a better quality gas model......looked closely at both Itasca and Tiffin and we thought we settled on an 2014 open road 36la but then came across an 2010 Allegro bus 43 QGP. While at the show we did walk thru a 45 Bus. Now we are really torn..the bus will certainly be a bigger investment.
Any issues with this year? I recall some earlier years had some crazing issues with the fiberglass.

We're on our second Allegro Bus. Had a 2008 40' and now have a 2013 43'. Very satisfied with both. Only reason we got rid of the '08 was the wife fell in love with the rear bathroom and I wanted to go with the tag.

We are on our 2nd Alllegro Bus 2012 40 now 2014 45LP. I don't think you can go wrong with a Tiffen Motorhome unless you need a fifth wheel which we have owned a few Tetons.

I thought I wanted an L couch too until I spent some time on one. I have not found a comfortable one. The backs are not high enough to give any head support either. After searching for the correct size, we replaced the Villa sleeper/sofa with a residential double recliner with a console between. Now, we have the same comfort as the furniture in our home. Unfortunately, now we tend to fall asleep before the movie is over.

Ok......sorry not to follow up on the original question.....we looked at the 2010 bus but had too many issues that I did not want to deal with....but it was really nice so.......while there we looked at a few new Phaetons, a 36 which we liked but did not want all the options installed so we ordered a new 40 QBH which we picked up May23.... We are now on the road on an extended trip....Love it
