So buying a 2007 you are spending a good chunk of money. With the deals that are out there right now due to the economy make sure you list all of the things you want and then patiently look for what you want. The Pheaton is a great coach but like I said in this economy for that money you should be able to get everything you want. We patiently waited and got a three slide 40ft Holiday Rambler for under 60k. We knew we were going to change the flooring and couches and that costs us less than 3k, so we still ended up owning something that fits our needs for a great price.

Hope this helps.

I know Tiffin builds a great coach and stands behind their product but I'm interested in why you singled out the 2007 Phaeton? You may be answering you on question?

In my opinion, bigger the better but then I don't know your needs. Do you need/want inside room or would maneuverability be more of a requirement?

If you have not made a decision yet, take a peek at our Phaeton 40QSH. I just lowered the price by $10k to $139,999. It is loaded with mega upgrades. Upgrades alone cost $29k which I know I will not get back.

The coach is immaculate. Good luck in your search. Stick with a Tiffin Coach ... it is the #1 selling Diesel Pusher for 4 years running for a reason.
