Tiffin Motorhomes News Release

RED BAY, AL
--- Looking for enough torque and beds to haul your boat, horses, friends and family in style? How about a moderately priced, compact Class A for family outings?
Tiffin Motorhomes is introducing two new floorplans that address those interests. The nation's No. 1 selling Phaeton model now has a 40-ft., 380-hp diesel pusher with bunk beds in addition to a swanky bedroom with either king- or queen-size bed.
"When we introduced bunk beds in our smaller gas units in 2008, extended families, NASCAR fans, football tailgaters, anglers and hunters snapped them up," explains Tiffin National Sales Manager Jerry Williamson. "Equestrian and boating folks told us they wanted in on that action with enough oomph to pull horse trailers and boats."
The Phaeton 40QKH features bunk beds on one of the four slides, creating ample space for people to move around. The bunk beds are on the driver's side, opposite the bed in the master bedroom, providing a unique front-to-rear open coach view. A more functional bath layout adds to the appeal.
The Phaeton 40QKH is available on either a Freightliner or Tiffin's own PowerGlide chassis. The MSRP, depending on chassis, runs $248,780-254,100.
The new Allegro 30GA is just two feet longer than Tiffin's shortest coach, the 28-ft. Allegro Breeze. The Allegro 30GA features driver's side bedroom and galley/dinette slides for campground convenience and a streamlined appearance. The bedroom slide is larger than Tiffin's previous 30-ft. Allegros for storage and walking room. A lengthened Dometic awning affords additional patio space.
"Many RV shoppers will find the Allegro 30GA attractive, especially younger families escaping airport hassles, along with hotel and meal costs for vacations and other outings," Williamson said.
Available on a Ford chassis with a 362-hp 6.8-liter V10 or a Workhorse chassis with a 340-hp 8.1-liter V8, the MSRP for the Allegro 30GA is $110,880-112,560.
The 2011 Allegro line introduces 18-in. floor tile, solid-surface and tile galley and bath back splashes, Air Coil Hide A Beds and solid wood window treatment inlays.
Tiffin Motorhomes received one of only three Quality Circle Awards presented by the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association to Class A motorhome manufacturers in 2010 for top-rank design, reliability, quality, value and competitive price.
A total of 423 RV dealers provided 2,125 ratings in the Dealer Satisfaction Index survey conducted earlier this year. Tiffin's ratings substantially exceeded the motorized industry average in seven surveyed categories: vehicle design, vehicle reliability/quality, competitive price/value, dealership warranty support, parts support, overall dealer communications and sales territory.
The Quality Circle Award is presented by the RVDA to manufacturers which received at least 15 dealer responses and scored 80 percent or above in overall dealer satisfaction. The 2010 Quality Circle Award is Tiffin's 12th.
"The Dealer Satisfaction Index is one major indicator of our primary goal of customer satisfaction," said General Manager Tim Tiffin. "We are gratified that our ratings reflect across-the-board the standards we set in terms of customer service, innovative engineering, quality, value and outstanding dealer support."
Founded in 1972, Tiffin Motorhomes manufactures the Allegro, Allegro Breeze, Allegro RED, Phaeton, Allegro Bus and Zephyr model lines. The 28-ft. diesel pusher Allegro Breeze was named "Best of Show" by RV Business Magazine when it was introduced at the 2009 National RV Trade Show.
