Allegro/P-30

A place to share information about and to get help with your Tiffin Allegro and its P-30 Chevy chassis. I'm amazed at the seemingly infinite combinations of floor plans throughout the years.

My stepson and his friends use it to crash in on the weekends. I don't think they realize it actually moves.

Pulled the Allegro out of its hibernation spot today. It was starting to sink. Right rear tires spun a bit but nothing dramatic. I got it out onto the pavement, repositioned the 2x12 planks and put it back. I crawled under it to put a jackstand into place and saw that the left rear shock had broken loose from its mount on the frame. Not sure when it happened but based on the hammer marks on the underside I'd say a while ago. Need to add it to the to-do list.

Mine are 215/85 R16. Big bubble tires but they help the ride quite a bit. The tires I replaced had the old 7.5 x 16 designation on them from the 80's. Glad to have them off the rig. Just waiting for my spare to show up then I'm done with the tire stuff. The old ones were  "D" load rated, 8 ply. These are "E" rated 10 ply.

Wow! Mine were visibly dry rotted when I got my Allegro and they weren't originals as far as I could tell. Do you have 17s or 19.5s?

Comment by Daniel Long on April 2, 2017 at 6:25pm

Just like Forrest Gump, " I got me new shoes!" for the RV of course!

Glad to have new tires vs. the original (yes, never changed in 30 years) ones.

Also what's interesting about that pic is that he has the power cord out. Is he grabbing power from somewhere? Or maybe hooked up to a generator off-camera. Either way, that parking lot is pretty liberal with their camping rules. Need to be a lot more discreet here in NJ.

Yeah those window awnings are a lot of work - someone spared no expense on that one! I'm always excited when I see another vintage Allegro. People seem to like to see them out and about too - they're antiques now (just like me I guess)

Comment by Daniel Long on March 30, 2017 at 7:20pm

LOL! I saw that Allegro with window awnings and commented on that to him! Guess we Allegro owners all have that knee-jerk reaction to seeing them in other people's videos.

:-)

Daniel - I was watching that Class A Living guy's vids and he spotted this in one of his boondocking vids. How cool is that (I grabbed a still frame from the vid)?

Comment by Jim Stoltz on March 30, 2017 at 5:40pm

I guess I dodged a bullet on that one. I was kind of surprised to see discs back there. I had no idea you had to remove the axles to remove the drums. A buddy of mine has an '87 28 footer with drums. I never thought to ask him about it.
