Real world weights on Allegro 35 QBA

Looking for input from owners of 2010 - 2012 QBA owners on:

1 - have you weighed your rig as whole, by axel, by corner?
2-what us the weight if your toad?
3- do you have concerns/regrets?

I've read all the posts I can find on this forum and the allegro site and don't know how I should feel about the handling and load balancing but really love the layout

Looking to be full time with 3 small children for 12 months.

Weighed mine last year, once, only front and rear.

Front GAWR 8,000 mine= 7,300
Rear GAWR15,000 mine= 13,460

Checked with: 1/3 water, full fuel, full propane, person in passenger seat. 2+ cases of water in rear bay, no luggage, loaded with normal basement camping gear and all kitchen equipment.

Yes, we are very happy with our choice. We started looking at floor plans four years before we bought and ended up with the very first one we both liked. 35QBA, we love the floor plan!!

We bought our MH primarily for long weekends however when a long trip came up out of the blue I jumped at the chance. We took a 6,000 mile trip last year and had a great time. Five adults for first part of trip and then four adults for remainder. Coach was loaded with everything we needed (maybe more than we needed) and we pulled a 3000 lb car. Only one problem with chassis, covered under warranty, and no more worries. Tiffin is a good manufacturer and stands behind their products. I would buy from them again. That being said...

I would like to have had the 24k chassis option to give me a little more CC wiggle room. I really wish that had been an option... and truthfully, I think Tiffin messed up by not making that mandatory as soon as possible.

Depending on the miles you will put on, it’s hard for me to think about full timing in this coach with three small children. Faced with that situation, I would look at a diesel pusher. Generally they have much higher CC and even larger basements for stuff. While this motorhome suits our needs perfectly well, if I knew I was going to be full timing in my motorhome, especially with three children and all of their toys, puzzles, books, games, scooters, and bikes, I would buy a diesel, even used if I had to.

Lastly, after reading this forum at great length, people say get more than you think you will need. 36ft goes quickly and I think for longer stays and a growing family of five, I would be looking at 38 ft minimum... and that also puts you more into the diesel arena.

For weekends and short trips, any of the gas Motorhomes would be okay and the 35QBA would totally rock! For longer trips and especially full time I would want something bigger and heavier.

Good luck with whatever you choose!
PM me if you want more info on the 35QBA.

edit: Check out the 38QBA. I really like that one too!
