We looked at the 4304 MADP back when looking at the Allegro Bus.

Both coaches are first rate in build quality and they are both backed by reputable manufacturers. In that regard, they are both winners and there is no bad choice here.

We chose the Allegro Bus for more personal reasons. First of all, the Allegro Bus was less money and seemed to be a better value. But our main reasons were that the decor, minor tweaks, etc just appealled more to us. Also, Tiffin's curbside basement hatch doors were larger and allowed us to install two freezers rather than just one.

I'd select whichever one appeals the best to you. I have to admit that the new 43QRP floorplan is a killer design with the way both the bathroom vanity and fridge are now built into the slide.

Mark is correct..... FLOOR PLAN as well as consideration of the basement storage alignment should be your greatest concern.

Newmar and Tiffin are both quality manufacturers.

Hey Tom!!!!

We are really liking the KS 3910 also!! Still having a couple of issues, the kitchen slide hitting the trim top right corner and the water dispenser frezing up!!!

Been to factory and to dealer, actually 2 different ones, still 'not' fixed.

Gonna end up back in Nappannee and hopefully get things finished up!!!

As Rebelsbeach said "FloorPlan" is everything!!

Well Budget is #1, LOL!! but then floorplan.

Have 'Fun' looking
Rick

A real eye opener today--I have had my 3910 three years, very dependable, rugged very littel problems- good construction, we looked at two 4304's and a 4354---worst wrokmanship I have ever seen.

I had the dealer park a 43 Bus next to the 43 Dutch Star---The Bus is like a Mercedes, the Newmar about like a Chevrolet;;

The Newmar Comfort Drive is quite good, but as we hit a very bumpy I-10 two of the kitchen cabinets fell off----one compartment hatch also fell off--it was almost comical

I wil wait on the Allegro Bus.

Tom

We also had a Newmar 05 KS 3910 and chose between the 43 Dutch Star and 42 Allegro Bus. Tiffin is a good choice. We have been very happy with our Allegro Bus. Tiffin has been a pleasure to deal with and very willing to take care of any issues. Good Luck - John
