Tiffin Motor Homes Inc.’s 2011 models make living on the road even more comfortable and eye-catching, according to a news release.
The new coaches sport 16 new interiors, including such names as White Diamonds, Tiffany, Caviar, Triple Crown Fabrics and Crème Brulee. Tiffin’s line ranges from the moderately priced Allegro, the only front-engine gas-powered coach, through the Allegro RED (rear-engine diesel) and Allegro Breeze to the Phaeton, Allegro Bus and top-of-the-line Zephyr. The Allegro Breeze, a 28-foot diesel pusher ($149,800 MSRP) makes its first appearance in the Tiffin line.
The Breeze, named “Best of Show” by RVBusiness at the 2009 National RV Trade Show, features Tiffin’s PowerGlide chassis with a 6.4-liter 215-hp Maxforce engine plus air ride and air brakes.
New interior features in the Allegro (30 feet to 35 feet; MSRP $110,880-122,640) and Allegro RED (34 feet to 38 feet; $194,040-199,360 MSRP) include 16-inch tile floors, solid-surface galley counter, solid-surface and tile backsplashes, under-counter-mounted galley sink, a gliding rocker, plus contemporary lighting and cabinet hardware.
The 2011 Phaeton (36 feet to 42 feet; $243,012-$295,498 MSRP) offers 16-inch polished porcelain tile; radiused base cabinetry joints; cloth, wood and wrought iron window treatments; hinged, easy-open stove cover; solid-surface color-coordinated shower enclosure; and optional lift recliners.
In the Allegro Bus (36 feet to 43 feet; $308,840-361,900 MSRP), standard features include upgraded multiplex wiring; multiple lighting adjustment pads; an optional safe; a master bath that features stylish drop-facia lighting and clear vessel sinks with high-end faucets; and a VacPan vacuum dustpan.
Tiffin’s top-of-the-line 45-foot Zephyr with a $471,520 MSRP has added a dehumidifier to the Quiet A/C system, a solid-surface step well; a full-tile galley backsplash with metal inserts; an optional safe; a solid-surface shower pan; inverted pyramid sinks with soft-flow fixtures and VacPan.
Most 2011 Tiffin coaches have larger TVs than their predecessors.
The company is pushing the coach capacity this year with 37-inch TVs because that’s what its customers are asking for, said Jerry Williamson, national sales manager.
Tiffin Motorhomes, founded in 1972, received one of three prestigious 2009 Quality Circle Awards presented by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) to Class A motorhome manufacturers for design, reliability, quality, value and competitive price.
Tiffin has earned the Quality Circle Award 11 of the 14 years it has been presented by the RVDA in connection with its Dealer Satisfaction Index. The 2009 survey included 1,644 brand ratings from 322 dealers. Quality Circle Awards are made to manufacturers receiving at least 15 dealer responses and scoring at least 80% in overall dealer satisfaction.
In addition to the consumer-related categories of the survey, Tiffin also was recognized with the Quality Circle Award for exemplary warranty, parts, sales and communications support to dealerships.
