Tiffin Allegro Bus vs. Country Coach Intrigue

40-42 feet

Any thoughts on the quality between these two?

The Allegro Bus is nice, but the Country coaches of that period were a few notches better quality. The CC would give a better ride too.

No comparison, the Country Coach is better. The last Country Coach was built in early 2009.

Does the CC have the semi-monocoque Dynomax chassis? That alone puts the CC far ahead

I'd go with the Country Coach, why not stretch on up to a Magna?

Love the Country Coach. Here are a few

Just me but I would stay away from the Cummins 600 and 650HP and look for a Cat C13 525hp.
PS Need to fill in your sig with your location, helps a lot when looking for help.

^ ^ ^ These 2 are actually on my short list ^ ^ ^

I'd like to stay 42 and under, but Terry has this awesome looking 36' Magna on his lot that I am also interested in.

I like the fact that it is shorter which will allow us to get in to a lot more national and state parks.

I wouldn't want anything less, for sure, but 40 foot would be nice TBH..

Looks good, new radiator steel and brass, tires, batteries and a lot more. If Terry said it has been serviced, it has been

His coaches are road ready.

There is no doubt that the Country Coach of that era was a higher quality coach. The Country Coach Intrigue and Magna were on our short list.
I would definitely look for a 42' tag model.
Also, the C12 Cat is a great engine. They tend to vibrate the coach a little more than a Cummins when cold, but they produce great power and are very reliable. Just check the trip meter as some can be a little thirsty.
