Got into the Tiffin family.

Hi everyone
As my previous posts.
A quick update
I was hunting for a Tiffin 36UA
Finally close deal in the 2017 with 37k miles
We finally agree on a still high but "fair" for the current market prices.
The coach is in great condition, even it's 37k miles
I was concern about the mileage but at least it was used and not sit on a driveway for 4 years
Coming from a Class C this A drives totally different. I love the big windshield, it's pretty comfortable
However the C ride is easy more stable .
I got to make a few upgrades on suspension.

Following Matt's rv steps.... what I love and hate

LOVE the huge space. It's huge from the living to the bathroom , one of the more spacious Floorplan I see in a gas A
Love the king bed , the mattress (memory foam) is super comfy
Love the electric flush toilet


Hate the overhead bed. Tiffin can do much better than a personal bed with 2 inch mattress
Hate the dash cheap plastic making noise all the way
Hate the outside shower location. It's is not just uncomfortable but also on your neighbors side .

Congratulations.
I think youll love the 36UA. We like the space the bunks make when not needed. Full slide makes living area livable. We went without the overhead bed to get the larger front tv. Im also happy with the drivability of the 26k chassis. All weve added was Suma Springs and steering stabilizer. The macerator toilet is ok but its nice to have the gravity toilet in the 1/2 bath when electric toilet fails.

Same on my 32SA. Tiffin wasn't thinking when they thought it was a good idea to put an outside shower with a 3 foot hose underneath a slideout. Same thinking that had them put a switch panel at the bottom corner of the cabinet next to the main door. Try using that in the dark.

Agree its not much of a shower, I look at it for cleaning shoes/feet and mainly for rinsing the wet bay.

Definitely not a shower. I use it mainly to get the air out of the lines when I first hookup (before turning on my Truma water heater). Other than that it seems pretty useless. I always have a second hose (uncharged while not using) hooked up at the water pedestal for rinsing stuff and ultimately flushing the black tank.

there is hot water it's supposed to be used as a shower
My plan is to attach a long hose to bring it back of the coach
Since we are in Fl we use the exterior shower a lot,
Funny that most rv manufacturers thinks the shower side and under the slideout is a great idea.. They Need to check the forums

I'd hazard a guess that most historically don't use the wet bay hose for showering, other than to rinse off feet, or fill up buckets/containers. But it's one of those "sacred" standard features that just can't be deleted. If you really want to use it, go buy some soft/flexible hose for $10 or $15 and retrofit it. Just make sure it's soft and flexible enough so that you can coil it and store it atop that stinky slinky in the bottom of your wet bay.

Welcome to Tiffin.
We have 36UA as well. We bought it in 2020 just before the pandemic and got a really good deal.

I do agree with the overhead bunk, although it comes in handy when our kids who are 10 & 13 want to bring friends along on the camping trips. Our microwave has recently started squeaking when going down the road and I cant find the source for the life of me.

Outdoor shower as its called is great for rinsing feet and rinsing out the wet bay..Thats about it..

Overall the coach has been pretty good. We've had some warranty issues that we are still working through but for the most part we are pretty happy.

As far as stability, make sure your tires are aired up properly and you will eliminate some body roll. I may install some after market anti sway bits over the next year.

Enjoy your coach
