Many friends in the Dog Agility community, all different brands out there they are using, most are all saying go for the Allegro you won't be sorry, we got rid of our Berkshire

I spent the winter with several owners of Allegro MH's. If you think they are free if problems you are sorely mistaken. Any MH you buy will have opportunities and Allegros are not immune to problems. I had major issues the first year but I never had a worry as FR response was always positive and a promise to make it right. The have lived up to that promise in every way possible.

Problems,problems.Bought a new 2015 Berkshire 38A in March and only at the house one week.The seal on Kitchen slide was wrong and had 2in.gap on floor.When we tried to test water system found the right manifold was cracked in a few different areas.When you turn on parking lights nothing comes on,but turn on foglights with parking light everything comes on,(reason still no here is that Freightliner cannot find replacement harness )so it sits at their repair shop.Then to top it all off when you are driving with the lights on and step on the brakes the radio turns off and the rear camera turns on,release the brake and returns to normal.How did this MH ever pass inspection at the factory.When it does get back going to have to go over this thing with a fine tooth comb to see if there are any other problems.

Sorry to hear about your issues. If you don't get satisfaction from your dealer, remember that the factory support has been incredible for many of us. Good luck. Keep us up on the progress.

Not trying to be a smart ads but how did this miss your inspection before you signed the contract? It's so important to do a good inspection before buying a expensive item. My son bought a used boat and didn't have a survey done. He replaced the motor after one use. Oops!

Picked up MH in day time so lights where not used other then to see they worked,headlights not parking as they come on with headlights.It was still below freezing so tanks where winterized along with pipes.As for camera/radio back to (1) was day light so lights on during test drive.Did not see gasket problem till I layed on floor to locate cold airflow from slide .I don't think the average person is prone on the floor during checkout.

oldkeywest91, keep track of the time your MH stays in for repair. Contact FR again and let them know how much time it took to get things fixed right. They may extend your 1 year warranty that same amount of time.

I'm sorry you are having problems, we all had our share. If you are not satisfied with the dealers results contact FR and let them know.
