Tiffin Showcases FRED in Allegro Line
Freightliner’s front-engine diesel chassis (FRED) will be available for 2007 on most models of Tiffin Motorhomes Inc.’s previously all-gas Allegro Class A motorhome line. Tiffin debuted the new FRED-powered Allegro, retailing from $102,000, and other 2007 models during the Red Bay, Ala.-based company’s dealer meeting July 16-18 at the Marriott Denver (Col.) Tech Center. The FRED Allegro will be powered by a 5.9-liter, 300-hp Cummins engine. “The front-engine diesel has given RVers an attractively priced alternative to gas,” said Dean Schaper, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. sales and marketing director. Tiffin debuted the FRED chassis on its Allegro Bay Class A for the 2006 model year. At the dealer meeting La Mesa RV, with nine locations in California, Arizona, Florida and Georgia, was named Tiffin’s top dealer for 2006. Others in the top 10 were: Lazy Days RV Center, Seffner, Fla.; Bankston Motor Homes Inc., Huntsville, Ala.; Marlin Ingram’s RV Center Inc., Montgomery, Ala.; J.C.’s RVs Inc., Livermore, Calif.; Horizon Lussier LTEE, Quebec, Canada; Dandy RV Sales, Birmingham, Ala.; Shorewood RV Center, Anoka, Minn.; King’s Campers Inc., Wausau, Wisc.; and Dickey-Stout Motor Ranch, Amarillo, Texas.
