As a lot of you know, we ran into major issues with a coach we ordered that arrived so poorly that we did not take delivery. (Read about it HERE if you are not up to speed.) We will not harp on this however and will focus on what has been much to long in coming… The ordering of a new coach, and thus our new home!
After all our searching, visiting, reading, and talking with others, we narrowed down our choice to three companies… Tiffin, Newmar, and Entegra. It is good to note that each of them had coach versions in the price range we wanted to be in. Of course they all have pros and cons and as such, our choice surely does not fit all and surely will vary among buyers.
The title of this post of course gives away whom we went with after this long search and many talks with many manufacturers. Tiffin Motorhomes! There are many reasons for this choice, but it really came down to only a few key reasons in the end. First…Floor plan. Second…The company. Third…Feeling at home. And by that we mean not only in the coach, but with the company.
COMPANY…In thinking about the company, there’s no company that made us feel more at home, more welcome, and whom went more out of their way to talk with us than the Tiffin Motorhome Corporation. This is not something we say lightly mind you. We visited a lot of manufacturers and did followup calls during the past four months. (Has it really been that long?) It was the Tiffin company that seemed to really care about the questions we were asking, that listened to our needs and requests, and actually talked to us, in length, about what they could or could not do in regards to our needs. Yes we were told that somethings could not be done, however before they would say that, they did take the time to look into it first. And because of that, we have no problem being told no as they came up with the reasons.
So in closing…Whom did we end up ordering from? After talking with several Tiffin dealers, we choose to go with Davis Motorhome in Memphis, TN.We worked directly with Mr. Danny Davis himself though the ordering process. Not only did he make it a very simple process, he was clearly the most upfront, direct to the point dealer we spoke with. We did not need to go back and forth to work out a deal. He did the best thing he ever could do with us…He offered us his best offer right from the start. To us, that said a lot. We look forward to working with Davis Motorhome. If looking for a Tiffin, give Danny a ring and tell him we said hello.
We also are very much looking forward to returning to Red Bay and the Tiffin company for the build process of our new home. We will be there every step of the way, learning, laughing, making new friends, and feeling as part of the family as our new home takes form. To all at Tiffin…we will see you in February and look very much forward to becoming part of the family.
To all our readers, thank you for all your notes of support. Your thoughts and prayers. And mostly for just being with us on this journey. We, of course, look forward to bringing you the build process from start to finish and updates even before that.
