Hopefully it will be a good engine......but as of now, its unproven. Think I would wait till 2017 model yr to buy one. But thats just me. Think a lot of later Breeze owners wish they had waited to see how the non-DEF Maxxforce engine was going to do.
jus sayin
Time will tell. I would love to see Tiffin build a 34' (+or-) with a ISL9 and high CCC with a strong hitch on the back. In the meantime I will wait for the 5.0 to tell its tale.

You and me both! At least we know they would sell at least 2 of them.

We have the Gulfsteam, it is built cheaper like the counter tops. The front Ac unit was wired thru the inverter, and may have caused premature failure. Also check the bottom of the rear slide. I saw one on a lot that the rollers had tore up the covering and the plywood, so I recovered mine. I run with a.friend that has a 08 Damon with the 300 Cummings and I constantly out pull him. No problems unexpected for this year of coach,

Far as I know the 36 Allergo with ISL 450 was 2011-13. Engine still here, but newer coach is longer & heavier. The short quad slide buses are hard to find, don't think the production was very high.

Thanks to everyone who pitched in and offered their advice and input on my questions. I am now the proud owner of a 2004 Tiffin Allegro Bus 38TGP. I will post a couple of pics on the "New Rig Show-off" forum!

I had a 36' Alpine with a Cummins 400 ISL. It ran like a race horse and rode like a Prevost.
