RE: comparing rvs

Doc, we've owned a Winnabago and 2 Tiffin Phaetons. I really don't think you will make a mistake choosing either brand. We really like going to Red Bay, where if we mess something up, or want to upgrade or change things, there are so many pros in Red Bay qualified to make the changes. If we get a scratch, we go to Bruce Denton ' s body shop. ( thankfully, no scratches on the 2012 YET). Having owned both Tiffin and Winnebago, we would most likely stick with Tiffin ( the techs will work on other brands too)

RE: Direct TV sattelite - runs how many TVs ?

We have 3 TV'S in our Phaeton. We have a receiver in the a LR and bedroom. The last time we were in Red Bay, Alabama, we had Nick (can get you last name if you need it) install a Winegard Travler. We bought the Genie Receiver from Direct TV. We have HD, and we can watch any channel we want, on any TV. We can record up to 9 channels. It is exactly like it is at home. There is NO hassel anymore.

RE: 36' Motorhome at National and State Parks?

We have always had a 40 foot, and have never had any problem. We have never gone into very remote areas to Boondock though.

RE: Thor Tuscany Owners--------Comments Please

We have owned 9 RV'S and have camped and traveled since the early 80's. None are perfect, and problems come with owning one. The true measure of a company, is how they step up to the plate if there are problems, ie; answering phone calls, letters, emails, etc. If they do turn out a Lemon, they work with their customer. We did not find that to be the case with Thor. Tiffin, Newmar, Winnebago, Monaco are well regarded, along with other brands. Also, all brands do not have the same re-sale/trade in value. A companys reputation means a lot. You will hear good and bad about all of them, but with good research, you will get a good feel, for the direction to go. Where there's smoke, there's usually fire, and all that glitters, isn't gold. ( to use some old clich├ęs). We've owned a Tiffin since 05. In our opinion, you just can't beat their customer service. If we are on the road, and have a problem, they answer their phone! The Tiffin family and their employees are some of the nicest people you can meet. TiffinRV.net is a great forum and members discuss all brands. You might want to check that forum. Good luck with your choice.

RE: Gulfstream Yellowstone

We've owned 9 RV's. By far Tiffin has been the best. Thor was by far the worst. Even if you aren't the original owner, Tiffin will help you. During 2008 when many companies went belly up, Tiffin held steady.

RE: AICD/ Pacemaker/Defibbulator....anybody have one?

Everyone was so kind to answer my concerns, and I just want to update all of you. After a little over two months with the Medronic 3 Lead Pacemaker defibrillator, I feel like a new person. My appetite is back, and I have had no fluid build up anywhere. All my lab work is good. I cannot thank all of you enough. I also wanted to post an update, in the event other fellow members may be facing needing a pacemaker or defibrillator. You also can't beat Medtronic's excellent patient services. Life is good! Thanks again!

RE: Beginning to think we should have stayed home.

Also, you can use a permanent marker on your laminated list. We always find other things to add.

RE: Beginning to think we should have stayed home.

We've all had a series of crappy things to happen, so don't feel badly about it. It's pretty easy to beat up on yourself, but try not to. The laminated list is the best idea, and check it without fail.

RE: Who's spending Christmas in the RV?

We usually go further south. During Christmas, it is fun to ride around and look at all the innovative decorations! We've got some fairly tacky decorations for our moho that we love.

RE: I was an IDIOT for buying a Thor Palazzo!!!

So sorry for your problems, and I sincerely mean it. We've owned 9 RV's, one being a Thor product, and BY FAR, Thor was the worst.

RE: new motorhome problems

We've owned 9 RV's. Two are Tiffin.... An 05 Phaeton and a 2012 Phaeton. NO ONE HAS TO RETURN TO RED BAY, ALABAMA FOR SERVICE UNLESS THEY WANT TO!!! We've owned 2 Tiffin motorhomes. We have found Tiffin to be the best, by far, than the other brands we have owned. ( great service anywhere in the United States, Mexico, and Canada)

RE: AICD/ Pacemaker/Defibbulator....anybody have one?

We travel about 225 miles a day. Dw doesn't feel confident driving and towing. When traveling close to cities, we try to get up and started very early, to avoid as mu c h traffic as possible. Do many of you think of giving up rving because of the defibrillator? We haven't, but before getting this new 3 lead PM/def, I have much more energy, and feel like I going.

RE: Motorhome search, where to start

We have owned 9 RV's. 3 DP's and one gas (Winnabago). By far Tiffin has been the best. No one ever has to go to the Red Bay, Alabama Tiffin factory. There are a couple of members on this forum that post the same post over and over about "having to go the the factory". That just isn't true. The great thing about Tiffin is if you do run into a problem, they answer their phones. On the few occasions we had to call, there was a tech to answer our questions. We feel like we'll be able to RV longer because of Tiffin's excellent customer support. This is not to say that they aren't built well. They are. We are on our second Phaeton. The only reason we bought the 2012 was for the half bath. We had 4 couples interested in buying our 05, so that says something about Tiffin's reputation. Newmar and Winnabago were on our short list. We just thought the Phaeton's were prettier.

RE: Advice? - 2011 Damon Challenger 376 or Tiffin Allegro 35QBA

We have owned both. We've had 9 RV's. BY FAR, Damon is the WORST we ever had. They were bought by Thor, and I think Thor changed their name. Thor provided NO customer service. We still feel terrible that the Damon Ultrasport is probably still out there on the road. We've owned 2 Tiffins, and by FAR they have been the best. Tiffin even helps second, third owners, etc. Tiffin has never failed us.

RE: AICD/ Pacemaker/Defibbulator....anybody have one?

Thank you so much for the information and encouragement. I already feel better, and it's only been a week. I called Medtronic today and it is possible to buy their cellular service for $10.99 a month. He said that many are going to cellular because they don't have land lines anymore. I think it's well worth $10.99 a month for peace of mind. Medtronic has great customer service. Again, thanks to all of you for the information.

AICD/ Pacemaker/Defibbulator....anybody have one?

This past year I have had a lot of problems with fluid build up.{CHF} It doesn't necessarily go to my ankles but to my right lung. It makes me feel so tired that I don't want to do anything. I have had a dual lead Pacemaker/Defibrillator since 2010, but insurance wouldn't pay for a 3 lead. One of the Nurse Practitioners said I would have been better off getting the 3 lead in 2010. My Cardiologist put in a 3 lead last Wednesday. After the procedure, he told me one of the leads on my 2 leads had not been working. When finally given the chance to ask, he mumbled around about how "well, it was sort of working etc. He said this 3 lead should really make me feel better. Have any of you had experience with pacemaker/defibrillator's, and what has been your experience? Do you have a friend or family that has one? I got the 3 lead last Wednesday, and I still feel really sore and bad today. Will I ever feel good enough to RV again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Tiffin Red Bay Appointments a thing of the past

We have owned 9 RV's. We are on our second Tiffin. By far, Tiffin customer service has been superior to any other company. Tiffin treats those with previously owned Tiffin's as fair and as good as those with a brand new one. The staff/techs take the time to get to know you, and they explain things as they work. We just had some one year warranty work done and they checked us out front to back, top to bottom. The tech drove it to check mirrors, tires, etc We believe Tiffin uses common sense and this new system will not cause problems for any customer. By the way, Tiffin has excellent mobile techs also. A customer does not always have to go to a bay. We have been Tiffin customers since 05, and as long as they maintain their excellent and personal service, we always will be.
