2010 Allegro Bus Has Been Sold.

(Edit: 1/3/2019, Bus has been sold)

A beautifully constructed and cared for motorhome that has made our traveling a pleasure.  King sized bed, 4 slides, automatic leveling, 3 air conditioners, 10KW generator, leather seats, 425 Cummins pre-DEF engine, New Tires, New Batteries, New window awnings, new slide toppers/covers, New Diamond Shield cover on front, all new fluids and filters 6/18 (engine, transmission and generator), New electric fridge/freezer, clear title in hand.  Ready to roll.

Currently located in Redding California (Northern CA)

Regularly maintained and cleaned, along with a recent visit to Red Bay Alabama (Tiffin Town USA) to have many upgrades and maintenance work completed.

Why are we selling? Probably the same reason you are looking…. it’s time for a change.  We plan to do some more traveling by plane and by sailboat.  Not sure exactly what it will look like, but we are excited to begin the next adventure.

Feel free to browse some of the older posts on this blog to find out more about us.  You will see that our Allegro Bus has been a great home for the most recent season of our lives… traveling back and forth between California, Texas and many other places.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a visit, please TEXT or call me at the number on the photos below, or email me at RexAJennings@gvtc.com.  If you call, please leave a message… I rarely answer calls from a number I don’t recognize.  We look forward to meeting you and showing you our coach.

This is our 4th RV and in all of our shopping and searching we were usually disappointed when looking at dealerships. When dealing directly with the owner it felt like we could get a better understanding of how the RV had been maintained & used, as well as detailed information on upgrades or tips.  In addition as we became used to the systems, the previous owner was readily available to answer questions.

Why we bought a 43′ when we were looking for a 40′? We began our search looking for a Tiffin because we saw so many of them on the road & had heard many satisfied customers who raved about the customer service.  Like many others we thought a Phaeton 40′ would suit us fine and searched very hard to find one we liked.  After several offers fell through, we saw this 43′ listed for sale by the original owner near Santa Barbara CA & went to see it the next day.  It was immediately obvious the coach had been well cared for, was lightly used & a great value.  In addition, we had much more space, a safer & more stable driving/towing platform and 2 bathrooms instead of 1.  We bought it the next day and have never regretted the decision.  My initial reservations about driving a longer vehicle were quickly replaced by admiration for such a beautifully built & designed machine.

A beautiful motorhome & one that we have been very happy to own.

For a good overview, here is the coach floorplan:

Cleaned up & ready for new adventures!

Interior fabrics and finishes all in excellent shape.  Non smoking. 

Large pull out increases countertop space in kitchen.

Looking forward.  Very comfortable chairs.  We rarely use the front TV… typically we use the mid coach TV connected to Apple TV.  Coach does have a satellite system, but we did not use it.

This is the Tiffin Powerglide chassis with the Cummins 425 pre-DEF engine!

Engine: Cummins 425 ISL.  Serial #S73038973  Note: This was one of the last “pre-DEF” engines Tiffin installed.  NO DEF needed***

Note: Tow bar, braking system & tow car are not included.

Thats a rough overview… now a tour with more detailed photos.  First off, here is the “build sheet” which lists all of the equipment details you might be wondering about (note we replaced the refrig/freezer).

Exterior details:

Just gotta love Tiffin & Allegro Bus… incredibly well built & a pleasure to own.

Good questions from interested parties & thought I’d add some of those additional details here:

This winter the RV was stored covered in Redding CA. 

The generator hours are about 700,  Generator is diesel Onan 10,000 KW (a beast!)

Known issues:  The bus is ready to roll down the road and be used as is, but I’d prefer a potential buyer be aware of some minor known issues:.

  • 3 small chips in front windshield.  All have been sealed/repaired professionally.
  • Drivers side rear bath window shows fog.  Usually covered & not noticed.
  • Entertainment systems/TV’s will need personalization.  We used Apple TV on the mid coach TV & almost never watched the other 3 TVs (Front, bedroom & outside).  King Dome in motion satellite tracking system is 2010 era and works, but does not integrate well with current satellite systems.
  • Crack in one floor tile in back bathroom (have extra tile in coach, usually rug over this spot)
  • Small 6″ crease in mid coach bay door, drivers side.
  • Roof is in great shape.  Over the 4 years we have had the coach we have seen only 2-3 minor leaks.  Those have been repaired by sealing around the satellite dome, or the joint where the front cap meets the roof.  Normal maintenance as you would expect.  No damage to interior ceiling or finishes.
  • Front window side shades sometimes don’t synchronize with the others when you hit the “All Up/Down” buttons.  Probably need to be reprogrammed.
  • We had a blowout on the drivers side front wheel last summer.  The damage to the wheel well and minor fiberglass repairs for wheel flare were professionally repaired.  You cannot tell any damage occurred.
  • Passenger side main awning has small 3″ tear where attaches to side of bus.  I would anticipate replacing the awning in a year or so. All other awnings were replaced summer of 2018.

This has been a great coach for us, and we think she will make a great home for someone else.  We look forward to showing her to you.
