When we went to the RV show in Louisville, KY this past January, we were sucked into an Allegro Red. We were hanging onto the door trying not to go in but we just weren't strong enough.
That's where we contracted the NMV (New Motorhome Virus). What is frustrating is our current MH suits us so well! It's size is perfect, it's got all the storage we need, it fits into most campgrounds & there is nothing wrong with it. UGH. But....we want a DP.
So since then, we've been researching DPs and have looked at what seems millions of floor plans & read just as many specs & descriptions. We want/need to stay as close to 34' as we can because of the angle into our drive and the garage we built for the G'town.
We have toured a Newmar Ventana LE 3434, the Tiffin Allegro Red 34QFA, a Fleetwood Excursion 33D and a Coachmen Sportscoach 360DL.
Topping the list is the Newmar. The Tiffin is a very close 2nd and the Excursion is pretty much tied with the Tiffin. We know they are considered "entry level" but that's okay with us
and I can see us being happy with any of them.
We aren't opposed to used but it seems there are fewer used for sale in the shorter coaches than new. We really do not want anything older than a 2010 and it would have to be in excellent condition. DH is adamant that any used unit we would be interested in would have to be garaged when not in use. We aren't in a hurry and want to sell ours before we get anything else so have plenty of time to keep looking and analyzing our choices but just as soon as ours sells, we want another right away.
With all that in mind, I'd like to know from those that have these units the pros & cons and if there are certain years that have had more problems than other years. I know Tiffin had a couple of issues in their pre-2012 units.
Suggestions for different models would be welcome too but we need to stay close to the 34' max length.
