It was the Allegro line that helped launch the Tiffin brand more than 40 years ago, and today this Class A coach is still a popular choice for motorhome owners. Six floorplans fill out the 2013 Allegro lineup, ranging from 31-and-a-half feet to just shorter than 37 feet and all employing Tiffinâ€™s craftsmanship and attention to detail.
The 36LA, a plan that is the longest of the gassers built on the F53 Ford chassis, features a bath-and-a-half normally reserved for diesel pushers. The Allegro has a one-piece, molded fiberglass roof cap and aluminum side walls, components that help to provide longevity and ease maintenance.
The cockpitâ€™s curved dash houses large, clearly labeled controls, accompanied by a backup camera with color monitor and a CD player with AM/FM stereo. Cloth driver and passenger seats are standard, with the option for powered and leather versions. The passenger side is also equipped with a pullout laptop workstation.
A large streetside slide creates a roomy living area and houses a booth dinette and L-shaped cloth chaise sofa/sleeper. A recliner and ottoman (standard in the 36LA) are perfectly placed to view the midsection flat-screen TV or relax in front of the optional fireplace. A home theater with surround sound and DVD player is offered for those looking to ratchet up the entertainment. A bank of overhead storage cabinets with solid wood faces stretches the length of the slide. Vinyl tile flooring is laid throughout the coach and the Allegroâ€™s windows are covered by RollEase solar/privacy shades.
Tiffinâ€™s high-gloss English Chestnut cabinetry, one of two choices, is also dominant in the galley, where several cabinets and drawers with ball-bearing slides provide kitchen storage. A recessed three-burner cooktop with solid surface covers, along with an oven and overhead microwave give Allegro owners plenty of meal preparation choices. A double bowl stainless steel sink is ready to handle cleanup duties, while the 8-cubic-foot refrigerator/freezer can accommodate leftovers and anything else owners want to bring along.
The 36LA is the only Allegro floorplan with both a full rear bathroom and a guest bath amidships for maximum versatility. A sliding door separates the rear bedroom and bath from the rest of the coach, providing privacy for owners.
A second streetside slide houses a queen bed, nightstands and an overhead cabinet. Opposite is the full-wall dressing area that provides mirrored wardrobes as well as handy drawer and hamper storage. The wardrobe module also houses the optional flat-screen TV.
The roomy master bathroom features a molded fiberglass, one-piece shower with skylight, and the 36LA floorplan offers a tub option in place of the shower.
Outside, standard features include full-body paint, fiberglass front and rear caps, a power patio awning with aluminum shield and 203 cubic feet of basement storage. A 5.5 kW Onan generator and two high profile roof air conditioners come standard. Or upgrade to a high profile roof air conditioner with heat pump and 7 kW generator.
