2014 Zephyr quality questions

Looking at a low mileage 2014 Tiffin Zephyr, from what understand they are considered the top of the line Tiffin coach. My questions are to owners is how do you feel about the quality, how do they handle in the high winds, how does the 500 Cummins pull the long hills when towing (I will be towing a 10,000 lb. trailer), any common problems to look for, would you buy anther Zephyr? Any pros or cons to thr Zephyr coach?

Hi! I can't help a lot with some of your questions but I will share what little I can. I just bought a used 2017 Zephyr, I've had a few issues pop up so far - had fan clutch go out last week while out west (about 21,000 miles on the MH and not really Tiffin's fault), vacuum trips breaker, mid bathroom toilet electric switch went out, leak in the kitchen slide because weight of cabinets causing slide and cabinets to sag (will have to take to Red Bay to fix). Mostly minor issues except for the leak and fan clutch. We were coming thru Oklahoma during those storms two weeks ago, VERY high winds but the MH handled them okay although it did bounce around a bit but not as bad as my previous 38 foot unit. I kept driving as long as I saw big trucks going and coming both ways! I have a 600hp Cummins and it pulls hills like a beast! I also tow a small Ford Focus, the MH accelerates almost like a car when taking off, LOTS of power. Overall, I feel the quality is pretty good, you're always going to have some minor issues pop up and so far, I haven't seen any glaring quality workmanship like I did on the 2018 Thor I just got rid of. Good luck!
