Tiffin's 2012 Allegro Bus: What You Don't See catches the Eye


Tiffin's 2012 Allegro Bus;
"What you don't see catches your eye"

RED BAY, AL --- Something’s different on Tiffin Motorhomes’ 2012 Allegro Bus. Is it Milan and Tour de France, a couple of new exterior color schemes? Nice, but color schemes come and go.

How about the shiny chrome handles on the compartments and entrance door? Classy touch. All those LED ceiling lights to brighten the interior, reduce heat, cut power drain and last a lot longer? Good change, well appreciated. The optional Paramont Carefree awning that runs the full length of the 43-foot Bus models? Great answer for sun and rain.

But it’s what you don’t see on the new Allegro Bus that catches your eye.
Rubberized gaskets sticking out around windows: Replaced by flush-mount, metal frames painted to match the exterior. Side-view cameras jutting out from the cockpit side exteriors: Integrated into the VelVac rearview mirrors.

“Clean exterior lines provide the higher-end look, as in luxury automobiles,” explains Tiffin National Sales Manager Jerry Williamson. “Last year, we hid the air horns under the hood instead of sticking them on the top of the front cap. Tiffin is ahead of the curve in bringing sleekness with few interruptions. That’s the look our customers tell us they want. We listen.” The 2012 Allegro Bus is offered in five floorplans with lengths ranging from 36-43 feet. The MSRP on the Allegro Bus starts at $313,320.

Standard on all Tiffin coaches for 2012 is a convenient exterior potable water fill. A high-pressure water supply is not required, since the potable tank can be filled with jugs or a garden hose. Among the other features visible on Tiffin’s 2012 gas-powered Allegro and diesel pusher Allegro RED models are recessed cooktops to increase counter space; high-gloss cabinetry and wood trim; a movable recliner with footstool; color rear and side cameras; and cool , bright, long-lasting LED ceiling lighting. The MSRP on the Allegro, which is offered in five lengths and floorplans ranging from 30 to 35 feet, starts at $114,240. The Allegro RED’s MSRP starts at $198,660 with lengths and floorplans from 34 to 38 feet.

“The recessed cooktop is a grand improvement,” Williamson says. “The cover over the cooktop doubles the usable galley solid-surface counter space. The high-gloss cabinetry provides a great first impression. ” The nationally best-selling Phaeton diesel pusher also has side cameras integrated into the VelVac rearview mirrors; a redesigned driver’s console for added convenience; a distinctive wood and wrought iron ceiling trim ring; Rustic Canyon, a new exterior color scheme; and two new interiors, Capri and Palmetto. While Phaetons come in 36-, 40- and 42-foot lengths, the longest of the trio now boasts an ISL 400hp engine. The Phaeton MSRP starts at $248,192.

Tiffin Motorhomes has earned one of only five Quality Circle Awards presented by the RVDA to Class A motorhome manufacturers for 2011 for vehicle design, vehicle reliability/quality, competitive price/value, dealership warranty support, parts support, overall dealer communications and sales territory. The 2011 Quality Circle Award is Tiffin's 13th.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary with the release of its 2012 models, Tiffin Motorhomes manufactures the Allegro, Allegro Breeze, Allegro RED, Phaeton, Allegro Bus and Zephyr model lines.

Very nice, but as they say "If wishes were horses, beggers would ride". Guess I'll just stick with my 37DB, at least it's "paid for".
