This ought to get some controversy, have looked at both the phaeton
and the Winnebago. Like the cockpit better in the Phaeton, but haven't found a
40' with recling chairs. We don't like the two couch thing.
The Winnebago has the chairs. I like the Phaeton better? DW
likes the Winnebago 40U. I believe the winnebago is cheaper.I'm sure there lots of opinions.
THANKYOU

Both Tiffin & Winnebago are quality brands. I would go with the one the DW likes best! If Momma ain't happy, NO ONE is happy!

Happy Trails!

Before making a final decision you might want to check out the Tiffin Forum. There are a lot of very knowledgable folks there and you will get pretty much the straight scoop on Tiffin. All of the quality control issues that Tiffin is having and their customer service are a very large concern. But the best advice is to check out that forum and the issues that folks are having and make your own determination.

Tiffin will delete a couch and replace with 2 recliners.

my BILs older tiffin had a rubber roof. don't know if they now have fiberglass or not. that would kill the tiffin for me if it still has rubber/TPO.

Well you live with the wife 24/7 while you only drive the coach a couple hours a week. Hard choice. Wife or dash? I'm lucky. Got the wife hooked on a Tiffin for the next coach.

Don't give in brother, or else all of our wives may see this and steal a bit more of the covers at night.


4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.

We really like out Tiffin product. They have always been great to work with. Our next coach will be a Phaeton. With that said if we were not going with Tiffin Winnebago is what we would go with.
