Perfect for a ‘full-timer’ or luxury get-aways, this 2014 Tiffin Phaeton 40 QBH coach is more than an RV.  This coach was loved and engineered into existence by a veteran couple of the RV life. Like many serious full-timers, they went to Red Bay, AL and watched each step, each selection, go into the coach.  There’s nothing to fret with this Tiffin. Selected specifically to cater to a tall man, there is plenty of room. Outfitted with the finest amenities on offer, with efficiency in mind, it’s easy to maintain, quick to get on the road and a luxury to live in.

Hitting the road is a pleasure in the articulated captains chairs. Slide the step cover closed and you’re gliding down the road with the air suspension system connected to the braking system on your towed car. Side and rear cameras respond to turn signals, changing your viewing screen appropriately. Digital radio, CD, iPod and all other entertainment options are included in the Sat Nav system. Fueling and parking are a breeze with the great visibility this coach has to offer.

Setting camp is a ten-minute process with the hydraulic auto leveling system, one touch per slide-out, automatic door and entertainment slide awnings and quick power, water and sewer connections.

Once camp is set, walk inside to your luxury home and flick the satellite switch to find that signal. Interior touches include deluxe wood cabinets with a smart tile that doesn’t show footprints and subtle carpeting. Add your rugs, pull out the dining table, swivel around the captains chairs and you’re home away from home.

The queen sized air bed/leather sofa is an upgrade from the Phaeton. It sleeps well and sets up quickly. In a sitting position, the reclining function makes a comfy evening across from the electric fireplace below the flat screen TV.

Set up to do business on the road, there is a built in desk complete with room for your printer and a filing drawer.

The dining table slides out to a spacious size. The two folding upholstered chairs are comfortable and easily stowed. The coach offers plenty of cabinet space, plus a slide out cutting/serving board with drawers that makes meals easy. The convection microwave makes everything from biscuits to pot roast. A gas range top with fan covers neatly when not in use for more counter space.

The residential two door refrigerator with ice and water dispenser sit over a generous sized drawer freezer. Turn around and you have a fantastic double sided aluminum sink with extending spray faucet and, of course, a window.

Sleep well on the queen sized Sleep Number bed with a flat screen TV, Blue Ray, ceiling fan, underbed storage, bedside cubbies and reading lights. The en-suite bathroom features an enclosed shower with handled shower head and a skylight. A full closet with generous cabinetry and excellent working washer and dryer make living easy.
