New to Class A - buying questions for Tiffin group

I've had Class C, looking at getting a Class A DP. We are considering Allegro Bus, Fleetwood Revolution, and Winnebago Journey DL.

I've looked at the forums, and have some questions -

1) Winnie has a website with all the manuals, brochures, diagrams, etc that go way back. Does Tiffin?

2) We are looking at a used unit, prefer to stay under $70k. Anything in particular we should be concerned with aside from the typical check lines, electric, etc. As in something Tiffin specific.

3) Anything else good or bad, year/model related We are trying to stay 2000+ but it's good to know the ins and outs of a model year.

Thanks!

Take a look at Newmar Ventana or Ventana LE.
We looked at Tiffin RED and ended up w a used Ventana.
Very pleased w sone of the features vs the T RED.

Wee really like our Journey and would recommend it to anyone. As far as parts and manuals Winnebago has been great.

There's a support website specifically for Tiffins.

tiffinrvnetwork

Probably going to have to go to about a 15 or 20 year old coach, to get an Allegro Bus for your price pointl

At that price point and subsequent age, I think a Newmar would be a good choice with good availability to find a good one. Maybe a Kountry Star or Dutch Star.

Whatever you get be prepared for a lot of repairs. Diesels that haven't been run much for several years will probably have algae in the fuel, so have extra fuel filters with you. Dave

With any used or older MH it helps to be handy with basic tools for minor repairs . We have always bought new but even then there has been some small issues that I've been able to fix myself. 2016 Tiffin Allegro Red 38 QRA. Invest in a good multi meter , carry some wire crimps and fittings. Alot of info can be found at TiffinRVNETWORK.
