Tiffin Breeze 28?

I saw a 2011 Breeze 28 for sale.

Is that one of the model years that have the porpoising problem?

Should I be concerned about anything else?

I have not seen this yet but donít want to waste a trip if it likes to bounce.

Thanks,

Bobby

I believe 2011 was the first year for the 28' Breeze, and have always been under the impression that '11 and '12 were the problem years.
Too bad, as we fell in love with the 28' Breeze when we first saw it in 2012 and seriously considered that model.
Interesting, Tiffin dropped the 28' and kept the 32' for a couple of years and have now dropped the 32' for a 33'.
Friends bought the 32' and sold it after one year!
Could it be that the rear engine diesel was just too heavy for the smaller size RV and was lifting the front end!
I personally feel the Breeze has gone up in price faster than many others on the market and we ended up going with a completely different make and model.

I test drove a Breeze at Lazydays several years ago before we bought our Allegro RED 33aa. The test drive led me to believe I was going to need to learn to drive all over again as I struggled to keep it straight. I later drove the 33aa and was reassured that my driving was fine, it was the coach. As a previous responder said, the short wheelbase is likely part of the problem.

Be sure you test drive it on a highway before you decide to buy.

My understanding is as mentioned, above.

My first look at MHs began with the 28' Breeze as the layout was ideal for us. Upon more research I became disenchanted with the MaxxForce 7 engine more than the handling. Too many issues with the exhaust emissions system that International committed to for the early engines began to surface. Movement to the 32 and 33 foot models corresponded with the later MaxxForce engines, and in 2017 MY, the engine was dropped entirely for a Cummins which probably made the 34' length necessary. If I was still in the market for a shorty today, I would consider the Breeze with the Cummins.

Thanks guys, you all confirmed what I was thinking. Like you I liked the size and style.

The price on this used one seemed decent without research but I donít need the hassles.

I appreciate your responses.

Bobby
