Allegro Bus 45OPP

Considering purchasing a 45OPP, has anyone regretted going from a smaller coach to a larger one of this size? Pros/cons please ie; drivability, storage capacity, rv parking sites. Any and all comments would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I can give you my perspective.

We had a 2021 Red 37 PA on order when the dealer took in a 2019 45 OPP in on trade.

We loved the coach and went with it. It is the first coach I have ever had (yes, I dove in head first )

I have no regrets. I have found it to be much easier to drive and maneuver than I thought it would be. Obviously, you need to be aware of sheer size and weight. The amount of storage is huge.

My wife and I, love the space and have commented several times that we are glad we went with the larger coach.

Hope this helps

We are full-timers. We bought our 45OPP new in 2017. We have been to the Maritimes and to Alaska, among other places. Tiffin quality is on par with others. We don't regret the purchase. Our previous MH was 43' so the difference in size was insignificant.

Had a 33, a 40, and now a 44’ Tiffin. Have never regretted moving up. Driving is as easy as smaller rigs, just need a bit more room on the turns. The tag axle adds a much smoother ride with less less. Literally tons of basement and interior storage space. Given the size you are considering, might need to be a bit more selective in rv park selection. We have basically ruled out state and federal parks because in most cases, even if the sites were big enough, many locations don’t do a great job of trimming the trees up, and you’ll definitely be over 13’ high. As for storage, would recommend finding covered storage with power. That Texas sun will do wonders on your roof after a while. Best of luck finding your Bus.

Going to a longer coach

High Folks, Wife and I traded our 43` Monaco Dynasty for a great 2018 Tiffin 40AP bus and loved it. I was spoiled by the previous tag axel Monaco ride. We happened to find a new 2021 Allegro Bus 45`OPP and purchased it. We would have been perfectly happy with the great 2018 41`coach but we are thrilled with this 45`OPP. It has the tag axel ride and stability that I missed. One more extra benefit on the new unit is the True-Trac swivel tag which is amazing. You can complete turns in and out of tight places that you would think is not possible. The storage is amazing(just like the 2018 Bus) and the Cargo Carrying Capacity is 10,000 lbs. Ours came from the factory with (6)170 watt solar panels on the roof . Quality and fit and finish is excellent and we only have a couple of items that need addressing. If you can find one that suits you , I would highly recommend the coach. Please Stay Safe.

45 OPP

We just picked up our 2021 45 OPP and only have used it a few days but we have a big 10 week trip planned this summer. Initial thoughts are that I love the floor plan, my husband loves the tag axle, there is plenty of storage space, the heated floors are awesome and two bathrooms are wonderful.

I've studied on this coach quite closely. I think the learning curve on the extra length and weight etc wouldn't be that bad. Just give yourself time and space to get used to it, it'll be worth it.
I say this because I believe that the 45OPP is one of the best thought out designed coaches ever built.
If I left my Ellipse, and not downsizing, I would definitely have this coach high on my list.

Moving from the 40 to the 45 VERY easy. Drives the same but better. And the extra space, larger bath, closet, shower very nice. Seems more stable on the road and a better ride than our 2014 40SP Bus. Quieter also. Better inside lighting and the touch controls will SPOIL you. I am glad that our first one was the 40 though. They are big rigs. Jeff
