Tiffin Factory Tour

“You can’t buy happiness…but you can buy an RV, and that’s pretty close.” by an unknown author

Kevin and I didn’t start our day with the decision to attend the Tiffin Factory Tour.

Kevin and I like to eat local foods so we decided to look at the local farmers market in Red Bay. The google phone map brought us to the Tiffin Factory instead of the local farmers market at just the right time for the factory tour.

This picture below is the Allegro Visitor Center with a 1976 motorhome out front. The motorhome has a green shag carpet and a green/orange color scheme inside. I remember these colors being very popular in the 70’s.

The tour started out with a short video from the Tiffin family. Tiffin makes 12 motorhomes a day. Tiffin is going to start making a Class C & a Fifth Wheel soon.

We saw motorhome ceilings, wires, slide outs, bathroom showers, sinks, water tanks, batteries, wood, rv roofs, lighting, furniture and more. We watched how things were cut, sanded, glued and nailed into the right place in the motorhome. I liked seeing the type of material that was put into my rv.

I’m glad we went on the tour its interesting to see exactly how a motorhome is built.

Happy RVing!

The RV hunt is over

Kevin and I found our RV home.
Class A Tiffin Allegro Open Road 31SA


We bought it at Mike Thompson RV in Colton, California. We just went to Mike Thompson RV to compare a few RV’s we looked at last week before going to Texas and found the Tiffin Allegro Open Road. It is exactly what we have been looking for.

We drive it home in 3 weeks. Mike Thompson RV is putting in 3 solar panels and storing the RV for us until we get back from our niece’s graduation in Texas. I’m so glad our RV hunt is over. We hope to do some part timing until Kevin retires next year.

Happy Travels!
