We've owned 3 class A coaches. The last one we bought new, a Tiffin Allegro Bus. I strongly believe that the Tiffin brand offers many more features and higher quality for the money than a Coachman. No company in the RV industry gives their coach owners better service with technical support, repairs, and parts than Tiffin.

Tiffin without a doubt. Open, honest, and they take care of their customers.

I just took delivery of a new Tiffin 34 TGA at the end of April. I spent quite a bit of time considering makers of gas motorhomes. Narrowed it down to Tiffin or Winnie/Itasca but Tiffin had more bang for the buck, a better looking unit, and hands down the best service in the industry.
I ordered mine with an upgraded chassis as it was the first 34TGA built on the 24,000 chassis. No matter what floor plan you may like, I would strongly suggest the same.

With every RV there are positives and negatives. I did my research before buying my 2011 Tiffin Allegro 35 QBA. This floor plan worked best for my needs. Tiffin has a very good reputation of building a quality product, and standing behind them after the sale.

Hindsight is always 20-20, and I would make the same decision again. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

We have a 2012 Coachmen Encounter 36bh and will never buy a Coachmen anything again. It was put together so cheaply and they do not want to stand behind anything or replace thier cheap a** stuff. I have researched Tiffin and believe it to be much better quality plus they stand behind their product.

Thank you for your wise words. It seems that Tiffin is a better put together RV. Mike Thompson RV is where I am going to attempt to get a good deal. Thanks
