RV Spotlight: Tiffin Motorhomes


“A family business built around yours.” – Tiffin Motorhomes

Today we are excited to spotlight one of our premier manufacturers, Tiffin Motorhomes. Did you know Tiffin is one of the few family-owned manufacturers in the industry? This allows the brand to make decisions without the influence of anyone but their customers. And they’re not just family-owned, they’re family-operated too!

The History:

Alex Tiffin began Tiffin Supply Company in 1941, a store that sold building and home furnishing materials. The family business flourished and in 1965 the Tiffin’s purchased a cotton gin. As his son, Bob Tiffin (at 23 years old) succeeded in the role of management, he became fascinated with a new business that had come to northern Alabama, recreational vehicles. The Tiffin’s bought the RV company and began their legacy of work.

Bob built the first Allegro in 1972 with the vision to create a vehicle he would want to drive and travel in with his young family. With the initial goal of manufacturing two motorhomes a day, Tiffin has now made over 50,000 coaches and is the leading innovator of steel frames and numerous RV break-throughs over the last four decades.
