Tiffin Motor Home Inc.’s 28-foot Allegro Breeze, has been chosen as “Best of Show” by the
RVBusiness staff during the 47th Annual National RV Trade Show. The Breeze is
built on Tiffin’s 21,500-pound GVWR chassis equipped with a 215-hp Navistar MaxxForce 7 V-8
engine. As the Allegro Breeze is a concept vehicle that is expected to be available in
March, Tiffin in late December hadn’t set an MSRP nor determined fuel mileage, although
it’s expected to get miles-per-gallon in the mid-teens. The Allegro Breeze features a
single streetside slideout, a one-piece windshield, an antique white interior, booth
dinette, queen bed, separate toilet and shower and plenty of interior and exterior storage
for a coach its size and as such, may be a glimpse of things to come. Runners-up in the
“Best of Show” category include Roadtrek Motor Home Inc.’s unique 20-foot Class B Ideal,
built on an imported 8,550-pound GVWR Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis equipped with a
slideout that extends through the Sprinter’s rear double doors. Another a runner up is
Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC’s retro-looking MPG travel trailer with four 19- and
20-foot floorplans, fenders and front and rear pass-through storage. The MPG is an example
of a trend toward smaller travel trailers that include the Keystone Passport, Forest River
R-Pod, the new Gulf Stream Visa, Micro-Lite Trailer Manufacturing Inc.’s Vymeron and Cikira
RV LLC’s Retro-Lite, among others. All have are characterized by shorter lengths, lighter
weights, a somewhat retro look and most have sloping aerodynamic front ends that provide
better towing. All of them also are positioned to appeal to a more cost-sensitive buyer.
