Tiffin in New Zealand

My Tiffin Allegro Breeze was exported to New Zealand and converted from left hand to right hand drive to suit the compliance requirements. Electricity converted from 110v to 230v. Entry door changed to left hand side of RV.

Not a reverse picture

Mark,

This is a genuine picture, not reversed. Lots of modifications were required to meet compliance requirements

A good friend of mine is from NZ and wants to go back. He and I keep looking at RVís online and itís shocking how expensive they are. A lot of the conversions has excellent craftsmanship, especially in the woodwork. He said that is a result of the apprenticeship programs for the skilled trades.

Great looking rig BTW!

Ok Biggles, I thought you were trying to play a joke on us!

Obviously, the coach will stay in New Zealand for the rest of it's life (and right-hand drive territories).

And if so, for the cost of everything to make the conversion, could you have bought a coach there instead of going through this extra expense?

Did they also move the water/electrical connections to the other side? The driver's side electrical run bay had to be moved too, how long did this conversion take?

It looks very nice.

Safe travels,
Mark

No choice Mark as there is no RV manufactured in New Zealand to Tiffin standard. Only 7 Tiffins have been exported to New Zealand and converted due to the exorbitant costs.

Water and electrical bays were not moved.

Propane tank had to be converted to LPG and most appliances were replaced to accommodate 230v system. New gas stove was installed.
