Tiffin says: "Consistently our bestselling model, it’s also one of the top-selling Class A motor homes in the industry, delivering more luxury and practicality at a greater value than any other diesel pusher on the road. That’s what comes from listening to Phaeton owners who help us make smart refinements every year.
   
A Roaming Times' reader says:
"We bought a phaeton in Jan 08. We set out traveling, and it has been a dream come true. We stopped by Red Bay to get a windshield replced. A rock had damaged it. Every one asked did you meet Bob Tiffn. I answer yes. I met his caring professionls. His enormous facilities, toured his plant, and even powered my motor home with his electricity. Yes I met him, without borthering him. HATS OFF to you BOB you designed a good product, sell it at a resonable price. And by way of our visit I found you back it up with goodwill toward your customers."  Dusty M.

Tiffin says: "In the 2011 model, you’ll discover a redesigned wraparound contemporary dash for an easier and safer driving experience, the elegance of the new English Chestnut cabinet option, and spacious under-coach storage with taller compartment doors. Expanded color choices, too: choose from three new interior palettes and six exterior options that include standard full-body paint and protective clear coat finish. You’re sure to attract admiration come tailgate season, with enough TVs to ensure every armchair quarterback has a great view, from the 32" in the entertainment center and 32" in the bedroom to the optional 37" front overhead TV and optional 32" TV on the galley slide exterior."

  Roaming Times says "Wow, these certainly are very beautiful coaches and it's not surprising the Phaeton is a best seller", and a Roaming Times reader (Joe Mc) says "We have found that Tiffin has exceeded all our expectations..."
   


The Tiffin Phaeton is not only beautiful but livable and really well thought out;  just a few of the details:

"Engineering makes a Tiffin reliable, but design is what makes it unique. From cabinets crafted in our own cabinet shop to the designer-chosen finishes, here’s everything you need to make your Phaeton your own":


 

 
"Thirty years of satisfied owners - and today it’s better than ever" - Congratulations Tiffin.

Norman Elton On my second Tiffin. The first was a 2013 Allegro Open Road 36LA bought new 10/2012. No problems until we sold it 01/2014. New owners first day, the control board for the hydralic system went out disabling the front slide and jacks due to oversite of ground wire during assembly. Second Tiffin, 2014 Phaeton 40QBH, bought new. Nothing but trouble. Home from dealer preparing to stock, found all cabinet drawers with rough edges and splinters, had to remove all and sand and refinish. In local shop now looking for water leak in kitchen sink area, can't find. If running front passenger side slide in after rain, water comes from under kitchen cabinets. Local shop also replacing outside seals on both rear slides due to leaks around gear track. I have spoken with Bob Tiffin twice and have to admit, he does try to do the right thing to correct issues. Just don't understand how an expensive coach leaves the factory with all these problems. Not what I expected.

Carlton WilkinsJim Shafer-I have been looking for this circuit breaker for about 3 weeks. Where is it. Yes we have a 2008 Phaeton 40 qdh and love it. Have had some issues with clutch fan but maybe they have been solved.
Jim ShaferMy wife was drying her hair and the GFI popped. Usually I just reset it and all s well. Not this time. I tried everything. The breakers and fuses under the fridge were all good. I even checked to see if maybe I lost one leg of the 50 amp input. I replaced the GFI too. No luck! I was in north central Ohio and the closest Service Center was sixty miles away in Columbus, OH and with diesal at $4.27 per gallon I was not enthused. I called Tiffin and left a message and in about twenty minutes I get a call back and five minutes later I was home free. Turned out it was a circuit breaker on a transformer inside one of the outside storage and service panels. This is the second time Tiffin has come through for me. This is one of the best customer support organization of any company I have ever worked with. How can any of us with Tiifin coaches go wrong with this kind of support. I am one happy camper! (no pun intended)
KellyTiffin make a great coach. If only I had the money this would be my choice
James FTI've had 2 motorhomes and the one Tiffin was the best. I'm looking around now and after looking at a few I think the Phaeton looks the best for the money.
M JeffriesWe are actively searching for our first motorhome and find the Phaeton to be the best value. It is very luxurious with all the features we are looking for at up to half the cost of some other brands. It drives like a dream, too.
J. KellyWe have a 2005 Tiffin Phaeton that we bought from Lazydays. This is our first diesel motorhome and it's been almost trouble free. Lazydays are easy to work with and I'd recommend them and the MH. Our previous MH was a Fleetwood Pace Arrow. It was OK but I much prefer the Phaeton.
Guy JamesWe have the 2007 Allegro 32BA with the W20 workhorse chassis with 20700 GVWR. Very very good. I've been told Tiffin are good to deal with, but I've never really had a need to contact them. Their product is excellent. The only minor problems we had were with the shower door and a few minor electrical items taken care of by the dealer. I actually had a chance to drive both the workhorse and ford chassis versions and we chose workhorse, but the Ford seemed just as good. The only thing I would do differently now is I think I would go for the 34TGA model. The Phaeton is something else however. This is what I really would like if I had the money.
RussI am a believer in Tiffin Motor Homes. I have had 2 and driven 2 others, owned by someone else, I have been to the factory for minor repairs. My first was an Allegro boought new in 1 2005 at Lazy days in FL. Took it to Red Bay, Al to have some things added. I did not have one complaint on this coach. I traded it on an Allegro Bay (Fred) because it had 4 slides and was a diesel. Bob Tiffin is one of the nicest man you will ever meet. His door is always open. This is gospel
Tony EstrinWe have a 2006 Tiffin Allegro 35TSA with the Chevy Vortec V8. Very few problems. Good dealer, good trade and where we've had dealings with Tiffin we've been very satisfied. We had a 1998 Allegro 31M before this so we've had many exchanges with Tiffin and know they stand behind their motorhomes. We like the quality of the Tiffin product. The new Phaeton looks real good, the 4 slides and the 42QRH floorplan we like. Tempting to trade up, would be good to go to Diesel with the extra length and space. This would be the coach for us, we'd go for Tiffin again for sure.
