Looking to buy new motorhome

This is my first post on this forum. I'm looking for owners of the Tiffin Allegro Open Road 35 QBA model or the Thor Outlaw Class A Toy Hauler. These are two of the models that I'm seriously considering for the near future. If you have had a great experience with one of these models or if you have had a terrible experience with one of these models, I'd love to hear from you. I'm looking for a unit where I can put dog crates with dogs and one that is large enough to put my keyboard in. These two models seem to fit those requirements. I'm looking for a quality unit, not a cheap motorhome (cheap in the sense of poor quality). I just do not want to have to fix too many things when I purchase one. The unit can be new or used, but not more than 4 years old. The mileage needs to be under 20,000 too. Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

The 2 RV's mentioned are really very different - the only commonality is they are both front engine gas powered RV's, but the Tiffin is riding on a 22,000lb frame, and the Outlaw is on a 26,000lb frame.

There are actually 2 models of Class A Outlaws (and 2 Class C)...see:
2015 Outlaw Class A Toy Haulers: Class C Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach

A very better idea from asking an apples vs oranges question is to post 2 requests for feed back in the 2 Owner's Forums:
Tiffin Motorhomes Owners Forum - iRV2 Forums
And
Thor Industries Owner's Forum - iRV2 Forums

I will recommend the Outlaw because I own one and truely enjoy the versatility of the Class A Toy Hauler...something that could only be compared to another Toy Hauler - like the Newmar Canyon Star 3920 or 3921...IMHO:
Floor Plan Options - Newmar

Best luck

Wow, thank you about the advice on the Newmar!!!! It is really just what I was looking for. I love that it has a regular bedroom and not a loft, like the Outlaw. This model will work for us. Now, I'm asking the Newmar owners for their opinions!!!

Glad to be of help. The Newmar is a beautiful Coach, but please notice that Newmar makes only a fraction of the Coaches that Thor Motor Coach and Tiffin produce.

To illustrate, according to industry reports, Tiffin sells the most Class A Diesel Pushers and Thor has the #1 spot for Class A Gas and Class C sales.

This means that a Canyon Star 3920 or 3921 sitting on a dealers lot will not be common and the dealer mark-down from MSRP could be less than other higher volume brands. But, Newmar touts that they will take a custom order, and build the RV as you desire

Best luck!
