If the noise is a loose grill, have the dealer fix it and then drive again. If he will not do this without your purchase agreement, walk away. If it is a problem for you, it would be a problem for most buyers.
If it handles like a dog on the road when it is new, it probably is a dog. Again, walk away.
Tiffin makes good motorhomes, but like all manufacturers, some are not quite as good as most. Check out the same model at another dealer, or dirve the same model at your current dealer, assuming he has a second one.
For the bucks you are going to spend, do not settle for a new coach than is noisy and has band handling. There are many coaches out there that handle well and drive quietly...just not as quietly as your car, but at acceptable, normal voices for conversation levels of noise.

I now have almost 13000 miles on our 2004 WH chassis (2005 Winnebago Adventurer box) purchased in March 2006.) We just returned from a 4200+ mile trip to Montana, Lake Louise and Banff, Canada. The coach handled well, the noise level is acceptable (much better than any previous Class A we have owned), the heat from the dog house is practically non existant and we couldn't be happier with the coach. The noise of the aux fans when pulling western mountain grades in 95-100 degree heat is annoying; however, the temp guage never wavered and the aux fan noise soon dissipates as crests of the hill/mountain are reached, so they are doing their job. Perhaps I'm not as discerning as others regarding handling and noise/heat, but as noted, we are quite happy with our W20 chassis, engine and transmission.
