Admittedly the stock front privacy curtain is a bit cumbersome, but we have adapted well in managing it.  I do like their full vertical Velcro center connecting feature, and they do store cleanly tucked away.

For cold nights it would be nice to completely seal off around the front seats with something like a thin quilted blanket.  It would take good skills to come up with something friendly to work that offers a draft-free seal.  It would be much easier a project if leaving the front seats on the cold side, but we store stuff on the two front seats, primarily at bed time where all my wife's pillows get dumped.

Then there is the swivel front seat feature.  It would be sad to block off a seat that could be used when we have guests.

We just started carrying a small electric 1500 heater with a blower for the fix but have not yet tried it out.  We never seem to camp plugged-in anymore.

BTW, This is my 2000th post.  Yikes!

 I would think that the noise from the a/c would be a bother while trying to sleep. The one in the living room is bad enough for us.  Wink

I've been wondering many of the same thoughts of your original post. Particularly, the price difference between a class A gasser, like the Tiffin Allegro, versus the 3100. At fully loaded the 3100 is basically the same price as an Allegro Open Road.  Arguably, both companies make equally well built coaches.

I couldn't wrap my head around why there wasn't a larger gap in price. I would assume the Allegro should cost substantially more.  The I recalled my Economics lessons from college. How Tiffin is able to price its coach similar to PC is due to Economies of scale. They're making many more Allegros than PC is, and they're makjng it up with larger volume of sales.

Think of like butter (costs) to bread (sales). You're able to spread the butter thinner and thinner the more bread you have.

Hope that helps s bit.

We simply leave the AC on in manual mode and shut the forward vents to keep us comfortable. That works fine for us.

With 30 amp service, the coach would not be pre-wired for the second A/C.  A reputable dealership or RV service technician would be able to install one with a separate 30 AMP cord for dedicated bedroom A/C.

Could add a windshield fan to blow on sleeping area from a 12v source such as reading lamp, etc.

  Is the cruiser wired with 115 at the rear vent for an additional ac?  I know that only one could be run at a time but cooling in the bedroom would be much better at night

Be sure to watch your speed. Your speedometer will be off a lot. If you have a GPS, go by that speed reading.

I put oversize tires on a van once and the first time I past a cop on the interstate I got a speeding ticket. I was off by 7 mph.

Hello Nancy and Bob,

Thank you for sharing your pictures and instructions for replacing the pleated curtains. We made and installed new curtains yesterday. We think they look nicer and work much better than the original.
