Legendary luxury: the Open Road Allegro

Open Road Allegro
The legendary luxury of the Allegro line is on full display with the 2020 Open Road. A favourite of first-time RVers, this stunning Class A Motorhome is built to the exacting standards Tiffin Motorhomes is famous for. One of only a few family-owned RV manufacturers, every detail reflects the intense pride Tiffin takes in quality and craftsmanship.

An obsession with detail

The cabinetry is solid wood and handcrafted. Slide-outs are built as single fiberglass units. This ensures they’re both both airtight and watertight. The form-fitted seamless roof cap is also a one-piece fiberglass unit — and a real innovation in motorhome construction.
Energy efficient LED lighting throughout maximizes battery life, consuming a fraction of the energy of incandescent bulbs. And Extraordinaire, Tiffin’s exclusive climate control technology runs quietly, maintaining the temperature you desire.

Sumptuous RV living

The Open Road Allegro’s kitchen is roomy, with a panoramic window. Featuring a two-door refrigerator with pantry, there’s a three-burner cooktop and convection microwave with outdoor venting. A double-bowl stainless steel sink and spray rinse faucet make clean-up easy.
There’s a deliciously comfortable a king-size memory foam bed in the master bedroom, a wardrobe with an automatic light and a flat-panel TV.
Depending on the floorplan — there are four available — and the options you select, the Allegro sleeps 4-7.

invictica exterior

Wolf Pack Toy Hauler in woods
The big story this year is “incredible versatility”: the Cherokee Wolf Pack 27PACK10 Toy Hauler becomes a bunkhouse at the push of a button. And that’s just the beginning of the experience.

The Wolf Pack: A Toy Hauler that sleeps more than a bunkhouse!

Load the Wolf Pack up with toys and supplies — bikes, kayaks, ATVs, chairs, coolers, grills and camping gear — whatever your adventure calls for. Unload at your destination and the Happijac Bed Lift System converts its two floor-based sofas into a queen sized bed. A second queen-sized bed, stored on the ceiling, descends to create bunk beds. Genius. A Toy Hauler that actually sleeps 10 —more than a bunkhouse!
Wolf Pack Toy Hauler, bunk beds
The Wolf Pack converts “toy space” into two queen sized bunk beds.
The aesthetics have changed too. The Wolf Pack sports a new floorplan and a homey, farmhouse vibe. Barn style flooring with light wood accents and matte black hardware are a real departure that completes a warm, welcoming feel.
The Wolf Pack has a single slide out with both a dinette and a sofa as part of the standard build. Most Toy Haulers offer one or the other. In a very smart touch, the ramp door converts into a rear patio with rails. All in, the Wolf Pack is 33’-7” x 8’-6”, with a 15’ awning with a taller axle that easily takes you off the beaten path.

Speed, Stamina and Style

Lightweight and easy to maneuver, the single-axle Airstream Bambi 16RB Travel Trailer is a killer combination of affordability and style.

Plumbing, propane and pests: Basic Fall RV Closing and Prepping for Winter

Join the redoubtable Jamie Russell of JR’s Mobile RV Services for an entertaining (and informative!) review of plumbing, propane and pests at Basic Fall RV Closing and Prepping for Winter.
