North Trail RV has new Mfg'r !

Hello folks !
I understand that North Trail RV in Ft. Myers, FL, Newmar's biggest dealer, has taken on a new line of coaches. "TIFFIN" ! Did they do this because of Monaco? They were also a Monaco dealer. Does anyone know if they are still a Newmar dealer?

Tiffin is currently building fresh inventory for North Trail RV. it will be interesting to see how these two top brands compete side by side. I don't believe there are any other dealers that have both these brands.

Tom Stinnett RV in Clarksville, IN (Louisville, KY) has sold both Newmar and Tiffin for several years.

I understand that Tiffin has just increased their build schedule by 25%. As like Newmar. They build to order only!

Tiffin can't build Phaetons fast enough to meet the demand from their current dealers. Allegro FREDs are in short supply too. And the new Allegro "RED" entry level rear diesel looks like another big winner.

Looks as if the on-demand mfg's are the ones that are doing ok and will be there for the long haul.

I have often thought that Al Erp (North Trail owner) was a very sharp guy, and that Tiffin would be the only other motorhome I'd consider. By the way, LaMesa RV (Arizona) sells both.

Tom Stinnet does have Newmar, Monaco, and Tiffin. We stopped there in '04 looking for a Mountain Aire but wound up looking at an Allegro Bus, which got us thinking Tiffin. We bought one (elsewhere) a few months later.

I was just on North Trail RV's website and was looking to see what they had for inventory. I can't believe they have 35 Newmar pushers in their inventory. OUCH ! They also have 2 Allegro's and 2 Allegro Bays. All 4 units are Freds.........
