What is with the Phaeton 37BH?

I don't see many new Phaeton 37BH for sale. Is it not a popular model, or is it because it is the same floor plan as the Allegro Red 37BA? I have been looking at both and it is hard to justify $30,000.00 more for the Phaeton when equipped the same way as the Allegro Red. Yes, I know the Phaeton has a bigger engine with more horsepower and torque, as well as a powered hose reel and cord reel but all the rest seems minor to me. Your thoughts please.

it is because dealerships can not get them to sell, everyone that tiffin builds is sold and priority goes to customers orders first before dealer stock orders. when we were down in red bay watching our 37bh get built the only coaches I saw built were 37bh's and 40ih in the phaeton model. there are many more differences in the red and phaeton than you stated. when we were first looking for a tiffin we compared the red and phaeton and when we added all the options on the red the price difference was not that much because all those options were standard on the phaeton. look a little deeper and you will see this.

First off, it is a new model and hasn't been in production too long. Buying a Phaeton gets you some serious upgrades - double pane windows, bigger engine, better exterior finish (Phaetons get SuperClear, just like the bus), much better interior finish, and so on. Phaeton's remain Tiffin's top selling models because they are almost as nice as an Allegro Bus at a lower price.

That 30K also gets you a third air conditioner, double pane windows, and heated floors in addition to the items previously mentioned.
