What New Diesel Pusher to buy

I am torn between the Allegro RED and the Monaco Knight. Both appear to be good motor coach with different chasis. The Allegro has the freight liner while the Monaco has the Roadmaster. I would appreciate any recommendations or comments.

I had an RR4R chassis under my '03 Holiday Rambler Neptune. I now have a Freightliner XCS under my 2010 Winnebago Journey. I am much happier with the "off the shelf" handling of the Freightliner as opposed to the RR4R after upgraded shocks and steering stabilizer installs. I also like the fact that service centers are more prevalent.

Tiffin has a great reputation. Floor plan is what directed me to the Winnebago, otherwise I would be driving a Tiffin with a XCS chassis. I am very, very fussy about handling characteristics, but the floor plan is equally important. Gotta find the right mix of both, then you will be as lucky as I am. Hope this helps some.

I feel you will not go wrong with either. Drive both and then go for the floor plan you love.

Personally, I'll go along with making the floor plan a priority - assuming both RV's are in great shape. Presumably you'll be enjoying it parked somewhere most of the time.

I have a Holiday Rambler on a RR4R chassis and it rides really rough and with having to replace both trailing arms at only 24,000 miles I would lean towards any RV other than Monaco brands. You might look elsewhere on this forum because there is a lot of discussion regarding Monaco RV with trailing arm issues.

We previously had a coach with a XCS chassis and I didn't have any complains, we just wanted a larger coach. I perfer Monaco... but then I have a 10 airbag Roadmaster chassis and not the RR4R that had the trailing arm problems. I believe the RR8R did not have the trailing arm problems either. I don't think you could find a better riding chassis than the 10 airbag Roadmaster chassis but they are more expensive than other chassis'.

Looks like the 2012 Monaco Knight has the RR8R chassis. Probably one of the best in the industry.

Knight's have had the rr8r chassis for a very long time.
My 08 is great.
