New 2022 Tiffin Red 37BA

We are considering upgrading from our 32SA to a new 2022 37BA. The reasons, we've run into many issues with our chassis and generator that continue no matter how many times we bring it into the shop, and an upgrade to a DP would make our trips a bit more pleasant.
So, we've found a 37BA, all electric coach, that seems to be a better deal then anyone locally can match. We live in the Portland, Or area and unfortunately it's in Georgia, so obviously a long way off. It's ~ 24% below MSRP.

I was just wondering what sort of comments or issues others might can share with regards to the 37BA, and or recommendations that we should take into account.

Also, can anyone comment on purchasing a coach from Campers Inn RV? Good or bad.

Thank you!

We have a 2020 RED 37BA, all electric, and we love it. The floor plan is great for the two of us, lots of room to stretch out. We find that we use the half bath about 95% of the time, probably due to the gravity toilet versus the macerator. We have the recliner/fireplace option (we ordered ours) and love the fireplace on cool nights while watching TV. Can't say much about Campers Inn, however 24% might be a good deal in this market (post COVID). Good luck and safe travels.

I bought my Red 340 from Campers Inn. The sales process was pretty smooth. The dealership was in Byron, Georgia. However, the service department not so much. I live in Texas, so never planned to get it serviced there. My limited experience was related to the IOU sheet where I noticed some cracked trim. The service guy said, "yes, I can order that from Tiffin and have it sent to you." It would have been easy to fix by myself, so I agreed. Also, the day I arrived to pick it up I was told by the same guy, "we need to change the oil in the generator." Mine is a 2019 and I bought it in August 2020 (new). I thought, great, of course do it. Well the trim never arrived. He affirmed it was ordered. Weeks of delays passed and repeated phone calls to the dealer service guy eventually were no longer returned. At the time I didn't have a full understanding of how Tiffin service works in Red Bay. Someone mentioned I should call Tiffin Parts. I did, and they confirmed it was never ordered because it is ordered by VIN. They sent it and I had it within a few days. Oh, back to the generator......so I got it home and the generator has worked flawlessly. I reached the time/hours to perform an oil change. I do this myself. The oil filter that was on it was the original put on when manufactured. They never changed the filter. I am also wondering if they even changed the oil. Since you won't get it serviced there, I expect your experience will be fine. My sales guy, Randy "taught me" how to drive a Class A. It was my first experience. Something he did incorrect was when starting a DP, the heater comes on and you can hear and see a signal on the dash it is on when the key is turned to the first position. Instead of waiting for it to stop before turning the engine over, he said I am supposed to turn the key fully and let the starter roll at the onset. So, he had me turn the key and roll the engine for 10 seconds or so until it started. Just didnít make sense. Now I just turn the key to the first position, then when the signal stops I turn it over and it starts right up. Iíve never read up on that, but I am assuming my way makes more sense. Good luck!

We bought ours at Campers Inn of Acworth, GA. Just like most other dealers, the sales experience was good and service was not. At the time of my purchase this dealership was very new and just getting started. They may be better now as they were trying to do good but may have been a little overwhelmed.
Thanks,

edit: At the time I lived in GA, but have since moved to TX.

Nice thing about that location is that you are very close to Red Bay. You can stop in while in the area have any issues taken care at the Factory.

PS we love all electric. Jeff

Sorry, forgot to mention we rented a double axel uhaul trail. Dragged all of our ďcouchĒ stuff to Alabama and just moved right in to the new one once it was ready. Did store it for a bit in Tupelo Mississippi. You get a free month rent with a one way rental. Dragged there with our Jeep toad.

We are going to look at a 2020 37BA right now. Is it a fiberglass roof?

Your "teacher" obviously didn't know what they were doing. You MUST wait for the "Wait to Start" light that looks like a light bulb to go out before you crank. If you start before it goes out, after a time or two you will get a MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) and a trouble code that you failed to wait to start. It will clear itself after three normal starts but it is a nuisance. I won't tell how I know about the MIL.

I own a Phaeton 37BH (same floorplan) and have a couple of things that you may want to consider. If you are tall, you may not be comfortable in the shower. If you get the all electric option, the Aquahot unit will occupy one of your only two pass through bays. The shower is not an issue for me, but I just couldn't give up a pass through bay, so didn't opt for the all electric option.

Yes. I wash it quarterly and then apply 303.

I have a Ď19 37BA and while I like it I find that it simply too big. Itís *only* 5ft longer than what you have but my opinion is that extra space on the inside creates limitations on the outside. There are many places Iíd like to go that I find I have trouble fitting into. I bought the 37BA because the 32ft I was interested in sold by the time I decided to buy and then I sort of got out ahead of myself and bought the next thing on the lot and it was *only* 5 ft longer.

On the newer Reds you either get the propane tank in one compartment, or the Aquahot in one compartment. You can't get both on the same unit, so no loss of a second storage bay.

We had a 2019 Tiffin 32 SA gas. We upgraded to a 2021 Tiffin Red 33 AA diesel This coach is 35 ft long, and is maximum that I can get up and down my driveway at home.

With the 4 slides it is very comfortable for two people. There are like 25 upgrades from the 32 SA to the Red 33 AA. We are not fully electric fans. My wife loves to cook and bake in the propane oven.

Some great features of the new Red 33AA. The new digital dash, all the goodies including a TPMS in dash. WiFI Ranger, washer & dryer, DP power, DP air breaks, DP air ride suspension, 10K towing capacity, pop up TV at table bar, 100 gal fuel capacity, Truma on demand hot water system, dual furnaces, slide out storage bay, and one of my most favorite is the Heated Tile Floors......

True, but you don't get the second PASS THROUGH bay. In addition the total storage is less. I calculated it once but I don't have the numbers readily available. In other words, you trade the full pass through for a bay that is less than half the size and gain a bay that might hold your golf clubs at best. If the coach was longer and had the third bay, I would probably choose the all electric.

This was my decision with over 45 years of RV experience. Others can make their own choices.
