No, but Tiffin Service is better than most other manufacturers.

I would attend a show or visit a Tiffin dealer and compare for yourself. When we were in the market for a Class B/C, I found the Wayfarer to be far nicer and better built than the others but we wanted something bigger. Bought a cheaper Super C and that's why we now own a Tiffin (albeit an even bigger DP).

When I bought mine back in 2018 the local dealer had them parked right next to competitors from other two other manufacturers. The obvious difference in materials used and build quality (both inside and out) was night and day as I went between the vehicles. That said I do like the earlier models better than what is available today.

When I went to the factory for 3 days to watch mine go through the assembly line (taking over 400 photos each step of the way) I saw them bring in some competitors' vehicles into the factory. They encouraged the employees to inspect them. What a great team morale event! What they brought in was clearly inferior and all the workers took great pride in pointing out where they did a better job and why.

That said, all RVs have issues as they are rolling earthquakes. At the end of the day better materials and construction methods will hold up longer. I've never had an issue with Tiffin when getting something resolved.

Best,
-Mark

Kinda depends on what you mean by quality. I think Leisure Travel Vans (LTV) is the gold standard for build quality in the Sprinter class C market. Little things like all wiring is neatly routed and labeled in conduit - it looks like a well done data center. No construction debris anywhere. Everything works upon delivery. I purchased an LTV Unity in 2019. It had no punch list after delivery - everything worked and stayed working. I had one problem about 15 months out - LTV shipped me a new part to install (they would have paid labor too, but wasn’t difficult enough to bother).

Tiffin uses solid wood cabinets and some other niceties where LTV is more weight conscious. So it depends on whether your idea of quality is real wood or quality is good OCCC numbers.

Similar feedback but can't really say from an owner perspective since I've only owned a Tiffin. I have looked at other Class A and Class C RV's. There was a noticeable difference in the Tiffin.

I purchased a 2022 Tiffin Wayfarer 25JW which seems to be one of the first 25JW made. Good decent fit but a lot of rough things that I didn't think were appropriate for a Tiffin. I took it down to Winfield where it has been for over a month to try to get the warranty items taken care of. They were very responsive to questions and gave me the option of leaving it there to get 'worked in when time available' or scheduling an appointment in Dec. I chose leaving it there. They have already done some of the items and hope to have it back soon.

Wayfarer is very nice B+ RV
So is
Winnebago View
Leisure Travel Van Unity
Winnebago EKKO
Entegra Quest is really nice, I think the best for $$$, it’s about $20,000 more than same competitors, but I think worth it. You have to walk thru it to really see why I said what I said.
The Quest is my personal pick.
24 L or 24 R
Walking thru it at Hershey really helped after walking thru the others first.
