Very nice! We plan on trading our 2017FR32DS when it comes back from factory for roof repairs. bought new February this year but have had enough, been in shop 4 of the 6 months we have owned. It will now be at FR for 2 months for repairs.

Luannr........

That truly is a beautiful Tiffin.....no doubt there. Iíve toured their rigs at a number of RV shows.

However, in all fairness comparing an FR3 to your Tiffin is like comparing an entry level Chevrolet Malibu to a Lincoln MKZ.

Enjoy.

That's a great looking coach!



I remember looking at Allegros, and deciding quickly I didn't want to pay for one.


I hope yall get years of enjoyment out of it!

We had the same problem, was at the dealer longer then we owned it, my husband fixed most of the repairs himself, it was finally in great shape when we traded it in but we really wanted a Tiffin.

love our Palazzo - 4 years and 85,000 miles with smooth riding and comfort... the miles speak volumes... let's go back to Alaska, or, wait, Idaho....no, hold on, KeyWest... ummm, let me think on this

We had a Palazzo. Just a real POS. Took our loss and havenít regretted it a bit. Now you might look at the FR Legacy if itís still being builtósame floor-plan. FR build quality was better I believe and the had considerably less issues. The big issues were in the full wall slide. Just to big for the junk control system THOR use.
