I have a 2005 38 foot allegro bus. I have been to Red Bay. I had to go to Alabama and one day had some time so I drove my car to Red Bay to tour the factory. The bus has not been there with me. If the previous owner went their I do not know but I have not had to.

I don't know about anyone elses service . I had a lock on the door malfunction. I called Tiffin there customer service told me how to break in without damaging anything. I was lucky and had left the drivers window unlocked. I crawled in opened the door and took me about 30 minutes to fix it. The problem was one that I had personally caused and was easy to fix. I have had few problems with it. Mostly chassis issues from freightliner. I knocked off the plastic cap on the end of the door awning. ( hit a tree limb) called parts and they sent me a new one the next day.

When I was looking at coaches I saw a lot of brands on the lot but very very few tiffin buses. When they are on the lot they sell fast apparently.

I would suspect that the reason you do not hear from bus owners is they are all too bus driving them and do not have the time in shop waiting rooms to answer them like other makes and models do.

The Rev is the entry level coach for American Coach. If I'm not mistaken the Allegro Bus is next to the top in the Tiffin line. A more accurate comparison to the Bus would be the AC Tradition or AC Eagle.

If you look at features and price point, the rev and allegro bus are very comparable. It's irrelevant where they are in each manufacturers line. Tiffins top model is well short or american coach in cost and equipment. A tradition will be $50-70k more and and eagle is a heavier chassis with 500 or 600hp engines, larger transmissions, etc and around $150-200k more. Not comparable at all to an allegro or even a zephyr.

I'd respectfully disagree.

I think the Eagle would be about on par with the Tiffin Zephyr. I'd put the Bus somewhere between the Rev and the Tradition.

I haven't kept up, but when we were shopping in 2010 there was a world of difference in the construction and materials used between the Tiffin and AC products, both the chassis/support structure and the house. I obviously went with the AC at the time.
