Latest Addition to the family

Got the pictures finally loaded from the day I picked this bad boy up. Only $700 for the RV then another $413 to have it towed home. Let the work begin

Its making a bit of engine noise that sounds like a rod-knock from the engine.. but i pulled the covers and turned it over and all the rockers look good and everything is snug and going up and down like its supposed to, so i've gotta dig a lil deeper to figure out what the problem really is. The engine will run and idle, and listening from the back it sounds right from the exhaust but you really have to rev it up to get it to move itself.

Theres also a little bit of a wiring issue going on that im working on but i think once i find its weak spot it'll be a breeze to fix. theres a lil leaking going on along the edges of the roof and maybe around the dish and antennae, but not bad and I just gotta get up there and reseal em. The wires were cut to the dish and antennae, but everything else in the rv works great, so im not complainin one bit.

For that price you can afford to spend a little money on it. Looks like a great deal to me.. Now the fun begins making it your rv to suit your needs...good luck and keep us posted...Happy Trails..

The old Allegros were great old coaches. She should clean up really nice.

If I know Tiffin they will be ready and willing to help anytime you should need it.

When I was in Red Bay a couple of years ago they were repairing a unit older than yours a good indicator that you will be able to get parts or solve any puzzle you may encounter.

Good luck on the project and post pics.

Yeah they are quick to respond to emails. Though I'm thinkin the person i was talking to wasn't a service person but a desk person. However I am very thankful that they at least tried to help with the wiring issue im having.
