Tiffin Motorhomes Inc. is adding the Winegard ConnecT Internet Wi-Fi extender featuring 4GLTE as an option on all 2017 models. Additionally, Tiffin will prewire for Winegard ConnecT on all of its 2017 models that do not receive the Winegard ConnecT 4G1 option.
“With the continued demand for connectivity via WiFi and LTE, it makes sense for Tiffin Motorhomes to include Winegard ConnecT pre-wire for all class A coaches and offer the Winegard ConnecT as a factory -installed option.” said Andy Baer, national sales manager for the Red Bay, Ala.-based builder. “Our goal is to offer choices for our customers that address today’s opportunities and tomorrow’s questions.
“Winegard has been a great long-term partner for us and has stepped out in front of the connectivity demand by developing a product that our purchase intenders want. By offering both the ConnecT as a factory option and including the pre-wire as standard, we remove the burden of wiring from the dealer.”
Winegard Director of Sales and Marketing Keith Larson noted, “Tiffin is one of the leading original equipment manufacturers in the U.S. and we’re proud to be partnering with leading OEM’s like Tiffin on our newest products. They recognized that without the pre-wire, installations can be difficult for the dealer, as well as costly for the RV owner, both of which are being addressed because of Tiffin’s dedication to superior customer service.”
Designed for the mobile environment, the Winegard ConnecT increases the range of existing WiFi hotspots. This long-range, high-performance WiFi extender captures available WiFi signal and rebroadcasts it throughout the RV for a secure connection at the fastest speed available. When WiFi is not available, the ConnecT utilizes high-gain 4G LTE antennas to connect to a nationwide data network and provide connectivity in areas where cell coverage may be weak or not available. Winegard noted that a monthly fee applies.
