Tiffin Motorhomes introduces High-End, Compact Allegro Breeze

Tiffin Motorhomes News Release

RED BAY, AL, Dec. 1, 2009 --- The winds of change are blowing at Tiffin Motorhomes, where the high-end, compact-sized Allegro Breeze has joined the Zephyr and other popular models. At 28 feet, the Allegro Breeze is 17 feet shorter than the top-of-the-line tag-axle Zephyr, but only 9.5 feet longer than a Chevrolet Suburban. The Allegro Breeze GVWR is 21,500 lbs.

"The Breeze is responsive to our customers, dealers and others in the RV market," says Bob Tiffin, CEO of the family-owned Class A manufacturer founded in 1972. "This coach is wonderfully maneuverable and easy to park, and we've included many of the high-end touches of our much-larger diesel pushers."

A concept model Allegro Breeze was introduced to dealers and news media today at the annual Recreational Vehicle Industry Association's 47th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville. The Allegro Breeze will begin appearing at Tiffin's network of dealerships in the U.S. and Canada in March 2010. Pricing has not been established.


2010 Tiffin Motorhomes Breeze - 28 feet.

Powered by a Navistar Maxxforce 215-horsepower diesel pusher manufactured in Huntsville, Ala., near the Tiffin plant, the Allegro Breeze is built on Tiffin's own PowerGlide chassis. Introduced in 2008 on the Allegro Bus, the PowerGlide chassis quickly became a popular option, offering one-stop service for Tiffin owners at dealerships and the Tiffin service facility. The PowerGlide chassis for the Allegro Breeze is newly designed on a coach-ready platform.

"This new motorhome enables us to reach out to new markets, including younger families seeking an alternative to more costly vacation arrangements and veteran RV folks who no longer want to drive, set-up or maintain a 40-foot-plus diesel pusher," explains Tim Tiffin, general manager. "While we don't have specific numbers yet, we expect the Allegro Breeze will have good fuel economy – somewhere in the mid-teens of MPG -- as a smaller, lighter coach with the Navistar engine. We will learn more in road-testing."

All the allure of the single-slide Allegro Breeze is not in the performance.
"The Allegro Breeze is a contemporary, exciting, high-end smaller coach," Bob Tiffin adds. "The furniture and décor are sleek. We also came up with a very attractive antique white finish for cabinets and drawer fronts. The whole package will be eye-catching at the beach, a tailgating party or a campground. As the economy rebounds, we predict customers will clearly see the passion, value and quality we put into this new coach."

Tiffin Motorhomes received one of three prestigious Quality Circle Awards presented by the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association to Class A motorhome manufacturers this year for design, reliability, quality, value and competitive price.

'We appreciate this recognition from dealers," says Tim Tiffin. "We want our reputation to be built by satisfied customers and dealers as well as quality, engineering innovation and value. It is a never-ending process. We have worked hard throughout the market downturn to develop new products like the Allegro Breeze and to enhance working relationships with dealers and customers."

Tiffin has earned the Quality Circle Award 11 of the 14 years it has been presented by the RVDA in connection with its Dealer Satisfaction Index. The 2009 survey included 1,644 brand ratings from 322 dealers. Quality Circle Awards are made to manufacturers receiving at least 15 dealer responses and scoring at least 80% in overall dealer satisfaction.

In addition to the consumer-related categories of the survey, Tiffin also was recognized with the Quality Circle Award for exemplary warranty, parts, sales and communications support to dealerships.

Boy there is just no slowing Tiffin down. Great to see they are staying on top of things as Winnebago and others have done with smaller coaches. Assuming Tiffin stays on task we'll get our Bus in a couple years when retiring.

I applaude Tiffin for following other into the shorter motor home.
But the reason we moved up to a 40' was the king size bed.
We use our MH a lot and it grew tiresome having my feet hang over the end of the bed.
Build something for a 6'2", 210 lbs man, and I will be there also.

I had the same problem. I used an 8"x6" piece of foam in two pillow cases and just slid the mattress down. I put the foam at the headboard. Problem solved.
Safe Journeys...

skipwell; Thanks but I am not willing to trade the Cal King sleep numbers bed for a MH queen size mattress.
Horse out of the barn.
Let's see if Tiffin (Bob) can do anything about this. My last sentence in previous post above still stands.

TOO bad all they display is PEOPLE and a few outside shots - would be interested in seeing the potential livability in their 28 footer...

Perhaps I missed something...

FWIW, and it ain't worth much, a view from an old cynic.

This new smaller coach is like a lot of other new small units coming out. Lots of style (bling, eye candy, whatever) and only a little nod to practicality. I often see references to "Euro" style. Here's the thing. I don't live in Europe. I live in America where a coach gets used more than a week at a time and we are used to living large, and we actually cook and relax and sleep in our rigs. Gripes...

Single bowl kitchen sinks. We don't eat every meal at a restaurant and we don't use paper plates all the time. We actually wash and rinse our dishes using two water containment vessles (a double sink, now there's a good idea!).

Little two burner hot plates. No room for the double griddle to make flapjacks and bacon.

Big circular dinettes with little round tables. Now come on. Barely two plates and two cups capacity? We often seat four in our dinette with room to spare for all the goodies. How would I set my computer and printer and work papers and snack together on that table? This style of seating wastes a lot of valuable space.

Short beds. Always my peeve since I am 75" long (horizontal).

When I analyze these new coaches, I can see so many ways they could have been designed to work better. I like the idea of smaller efficient rigs, but when style trumps practicality, it will always be "No Sale" to me.

Could someone tell me what the slot is for in the back of the driver's seat?

I've always believed motor homes were designed for people less than six feet tall.
Kind of nice to hear from others,where size matters.
Who, even in the most expensive coaches, sets that dadgum tv hanging down in the front as a headknocker for us? We be dumb, both the knocker and the knockee.
Thank for letting me rant.

Kerry
