Advice on 2015 Phaeton 42 LH

I am looking at possibly upgrading to a 2015 Phaeton 42 LH tag axle. For the past 16 years I have pretty much been a Fleetwood fan and my current coach which I purchased new is a 2006 Fleetwood Discovery 39S that I have been very happy with.

Can anyone provide me with some comments on the Phaeton product line. I'm looking at a 2015 Phaeton 42 LH with opposing sofas and the U shaped dinette table and I'm torn as to whether or not to stay with the Fleetwood product line.

Really appreciate any comments/assistance you can provide me.

We couldn't be happier with our 2014 42LH. No big problems, drives like a big, quiet, powerful golf cart and as full timers we are pleased to have it as our home. The jake brake sure makes driving easier in the mountains. Love the heated floors and dishwasher. Love the AquaHot system. We have the L shaped sofa with the entertainment center across from it and lounge chair that we didn't think would be good for watching TV but we actually prefer sitting there for viewing. Love the indication cooktop but wish it simmered at a lower temp. We will replace it someday with a better quality induction cooktop. We have more than enough storage...some cabinets are only partially full.
We couldn't be more pleased with our Phaeton!

I would recommend the Phaeton to anyone. It is one class coach. The confort level, the driving conditions and the quality are top of the line. Perhaps that is why it is one of the top selling coach's being sold.
The Tiffin factory is outstanding in assisting customers. Tiffin has never closed, never filed for bankruptsy and is family owned and operated.
We owned the Allegro RED for three years and ordered our 2014 Phaeton last year and it continues to impress us with the quality and comfort.

We are pleased with our Phaeton. Oh , there were some bugs in it but nothing that I considered worth bring to a dealer for, I repaired a leaking kitchen drain hose, adjusted a few cabinet doors, an outside door adjustment and a few other things...any parts I needed were sent to me by Tiffin promptly. I don't know if we got a good one off the line or some folks are hyper critical but we don't have a long punch list, in fact we don't have one at all.
As I said, we are pleased with our Phaeton.
