One optional amenity for the type A is Aqua-Hot Heating Systems' new 250D hydronic heating product. It provides 40,000 Btu/hour of evenly distributed warmth without the dry, blowing air associated with traditional systems, plus continuous hot water for a total residential-style experience.

The Aqua-Hot 250D uses diesel fuel and is operated by 12-volt DC for off-grid applications. When plugged into shore power, it can run on a 110-volt AC electric element. The product doesn't take up much space within the Allegro RED, yet easily heats the close to 2,200-cubic-foot.interior. It weighs 84 pounds empty and 113 pounds full.

"We chose the Aqua-Hot solution because it offers continuous hot water and consistent heating throughout, without the temperature variation you get with forced air," says Andy Baer of Tiffin Motorhomes. "It also allows the coach to be propane-free."

Tiffin says the Allegro RED has quickly gained a reputation for its drivability. With a Freightliner rear engine diesel chassis, it delivers a quiet, confident ride with more than ample torque and horsepower with its turbocharged and aftercooled Cummins ISB 6.7-liter engine, the company says.
