Our dealership was a Allegro dealer. Tiffin made a good motorhome. The rule of thumb was 30 ft or less 1 AC. 31 ft and over 2 AC's. Your best bet is to pay someone to check it out. The day you check it out, It should be full of water. have some propane to test the Water heater, Refrigerator, Furnace, Stove top and oven. Have them start the ref. a day before and test temp. in box and freezer. Start the water heater before you get there to check for hot water.
Run the generator. Make sure it stays running for a couple of hours. Test drive it. After returning from the test drive, DO NOT turn it off. let it idle for at least 20 min. Check oil pressure and engine water temp.at the end of that time. This is just the basics.
