So happy we discovered Tiffin

Just by chance we ran into a Tiffin gas coach (bunk model) owner this past summer as I never looked at this brand till they gave us the tour at dump station non the less. No gas coach impressed us before this as I vowed that we would stick to a 5th wheel as DP coaches are out of our reach.
After seeing the Tiffin I started looking at a few dealers in the Buffalo area. Nothing stood out but the Allegro.
Found the 36LA model suited us perfectly. Ended up with a new 2013 from our exclusive Ontario dealer. Love the layout, storage, equipment, colours, decor, roominess of the rear bath, etc. Nothing we have seen since even comes close and I have studied them all. Newmar, Winnebago, Thor, Fleetwood,Georgetown,

Can't wait till spring

Be very carefull, the 36LA can ve very dangerous to you wallet. We had one and like it so well we decided to go full time and traded the eight month old 36LA for a Phaeton. And we're not the only ones. I know of two others that started with the 36LA and then decided to go full time and traded for Phaeton's.
It's a great coach, well made, great floor plan and well supported by tiffin. I have to agree Mel, it's probably the best of the gas coaches.

Same here. I had a deal for a Palazzo DP and did some further investigation. Found lots of problems. I then turned to gas coaches with high end amenities and a manufacturer with a great reputation. That's when I found Tiffin and my 36LA. Real happy.

I have noticed so many trading up as well. I think the gas coach will do us as I still like too many of my toys and not ready to give up the stick and brick house.
The Phaeton is one awesome rig.

Nice things about the 36LA is that it comes on a 24000k chassis and you can get it with a residential refrigerator, 2 extra batteries and an inverter to run the fridge.

My only concern with our 36LA is the fact that it has over 200 cu ft of storage. I am fearful my loving wife is going to find “stuff” to fill it.

You don't have to be fearful, as it "WILL" happen. Everytime we have upgraded, the basement is full. I still don't know how normal people can travel south for the winter in a car or SUV.

We had a 36lA and traded up, but I will tell you on that chassis it is a winner! We love that coach, I know you will love it! It is the best gas coach on the market!
Have fun with it!

Congratulations, what a great coach! I just wish they made that same floor plan in a diesel. To get something like yours in a DF, you have to go all the way up to a 40 QBH and that is a lot more $$$. Good luck and enjoy. See you over on TiffinRVNetwork

As soon as I bought it I suggested to Tiffin that they convince Ford to start installing their diesel (ala F250,350,450) engines into this chassis.
Sure there would be alot of takers for $8-10,000 difference. It would be a great option but might cut into their DP sales.
