Price range for Tiffin Phaeton

45' w/tag axel, new Michelin steer tires all around. Not sure of model year, but looks well cared for from exterior. Guessing somewhere around 2012. Anybody have any ideas about price range? The asking price is $115K.

A 45 foot, new tires @ $115k would be a VERY good price depending on mileage, overall condition, etc. Spend the $200-$250 for a thorough inspection with engine/generator oil test and transmission fluid test. Eight new tires would likely be ~ $3500. Iíd be very curious as to why such a low price unless the age is more like a 2008.

Wasn't able to enter coach, and didn't call the contact number. A friend was interested. Don't know anything about the Tiffin motor coaches, but looks well cared for. The only signs of age is some signs of frosting in the double pane driver's door window, and also cloudy headlight covers. Paint appears excellent.

I would be concerned @ that price .... Hidden Flood/Hurricane/wind damage????

Good point! There were no visible indications of that kind of damage, but would probably have to look inside the bays underneath. Don't know if a private sale has to disclose that information.....

No way it's a 2012 for that price...... unless the title isn't clean.

I misspoke with the driver's door comment. I meant entry door.

Are you sure it's a 45'? They did not begin making the 44' Phaeton OH till 2015. More than likely it is the 42' Phaeton LH.
Based upon your indication that the headlights are in need of replacing, I would put the age between 2008 and 2013 . The headlights are a very inexpensive replacement in Red Bay... probably under $300 by Bruce Deaton and Custom Paint. The Fogging of the Door window is also very common, as it is continually opened/closed. Mostly should be under Tiffin Warranty in Red Bay... or a nominal charge at most, under $200. Neither of these two items would/should detour a knowledgeable buyer. More concern should be the age of the rubber gaskets, engine/chassis and transmission maintenance.

check out Nada.com under motorhomes, ALLEGRO. The various models are listed by year.

If you took a picture, post it.... many of us know the paint scheme by year.... would be helpful in being able to place the year correctly.
