More than 100 dealer personnel are in Alabama for the 2015 Tiffin Motorhomes Inc. Dealer Meeting at the Marriot Shoals Resort & Spa in Florence, Ala.
The two-day meeting began Monday night (Aug. 10) with a dinner, some words of welcome from President Bob Tiffin and a performance by 3 Wheel Drive, which treated the audience to an entertaining journey through the rock-country-blues music for which the Muscle Shoals region of Alabama is known.
“I think we’re going to have a great year this year. I came across the bridge about 3 o’clock this afternoon and up on the service station’s billboard it was $2.16 for regular gasoline, and $2.37 for diesel. I tell you what, that’s getting down there. Y’all have to tell me what you charge for interest. How much? 5-6%? I don’t see why we can’t sell four or five thousand motorhomes this year,” Tiffin said, adding that he doesn’t see a downturn for at least the next 17-18 months.
The meetings conclude today with a tour of the manufacturer’s campus in Red Bay, Ala., where dealers will get to see the new 40,000-square-foot manufacturing facility for Tiffin’s proprietary PowerGlide Chassis.
Also on the agenda are the introduction of three new models, one each for the Allegro Breeze, Allegro and Phaeton.
