I'm not really into Yucking other people's Yum's and if you love your Tiffin coach then good for you. But my comments about form over function come from an in depth analysis of their coaches and build techniques. I have been to the factory twice, I know several people who had some major build problems with their Tiffin's and have watched their coaches as they were fixed to an acceptable standard. I have spoken to two of the largest RV service department managers and poured over several other Tiffin coaches they have had in their service bays that have been stripped down for major repairs. I was able to compare and contrast a Tiffin, a winnebago and a Newmar side by side while they all had major components removed and that, to say the least, showed major differences in the behind-the-scenes build quality.
As several of you have commented Tiffin's are loaded with real wood cabinetry and fancy DVD/Audio Systems and 2000 watt inverters, which is all of those bells and whistles (glitz) which sold you on your coach in the first place. While those things are nice and I admit that Tiffin's are pretty to look at I find them to be lacking in their build quality. I think a quick search here on IRV2 or other forums will show a long history of problems, most of which you will not see in other manufacturers. As another commentator said they thought Tiffin's were plain compared to Newmar's. I think if you compare apples to apples they will be about the same on the glitz level (although the Newmar will cost a bit more) but under the glitz of the Newmar you will find, IMHO, a superior build and that is what I was talking about.
But the bottom line is be happy with your coach. If it performs well and you have no issues, congratulations, pat yourself on the back for making a smart purchase that fits your needs. I hope you have many wonderful trouble free years in whatever coach you are in.
