Tiffin Unveils 28-Foot Class A Diesel Pusher
Tiffin Motor Homes Inc. today (Dec. 1) unveiled a concept model of the high-end, compact-sized Allegro Breeze diesel pusher at the 47th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky. At 28 feet, the 21,500-pound GVWR Allegro Breeze is 17 feet shorter than Tiffin’s to Navistar Maxxforce 215-horsepower but only 9 1/2 feet longer than a Chevrolet Suburban. ”The Breeze is responsive to our customers, dealers and others in the RV market,” says Bob Tiffin, CEO of the family-owned, Red Bay, Ala., Class A manufacturer founded in 1972. ”This coach is wonderfully maneuverable and easy to park, and we’ve included many of the high-end touches of our much-larger diesel pushers.” Powered by a Navistar Maxxforce 215-hp diesel pusher manufactured in Huntsville, Ala., near the Tiffin plant, the Allegro Breeze is built on Tiffin’s own PowerGlide chassis. “This new motorhome enables us to reach out to new markets, including younger families seeking an alternative to more costly vacation arrangements and veteran RV folks who no longer want to drive, set up or maintain a 40-foot-plus diesel pusher,” explained Tim Tiffin, general manager. “While we don’t have specific numbers yet, we expect the Allegro Breeze will have good fuel economy – somewhere in the mid-teens of MPG — as a smaller, lighter coach with the Navistar engine. We will learn more in road-testing.” The Allegro Breeze will begin appearing at Tiffin’s network of dealerships in the U.S. and Canada in March. Pricing has not been established.
