Our two year anniversary of owning of our coach ‘Rocky’ (mid May) coincided with our inaugural visit to Tiffin’s HQ and Plant in Red Bay, Alabama. Naturally, we were keen to do the factory plant and paint shop tours we’d heard so much about, plus it was a good opportunity to get Rocky into the Service and Paint shops for a little TLC by the professionals who know Tiffin coaches inside out and work on them every day.
Overall, we spent a week there, staying onsite at the Allegro Campground (really more of a parking lot) and had a positive experience. And Rocky is looking and feeling fantastic!
We decided that there was so much to share that it would make more sense to cover our entire experience in a “Tiffin series” of videos and blog posts to help break the content up into specific areas of focus.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a Tiffin owner, a fan or not – at the end of the day, this content is designed to share our experience as RV owners so we hope you’ll find the information useful and our experiences relevant and somewhat interesting no matter what stage you are at in your RV journey.
Here’s what we have covered already and a summary of what is currently underway, to be posted shortly.

Part 1: Our RV Repair List and Questions
Part 2: Repairs at the Tiffin Service Bay & Paint Shop & What It Cost Us
Issues fixed, questions answered and a surprise repair we weren’t expecting! Here’s our entire experience, capped off with a happy hour to celebrate a special occasion.
After that, I’l be working on…
3. The Tiffin Factory Plant & Paint Shop Tour
Even if you’re not a Tiffin owner, it’s worth making a trip to Red Bay if you’re going to be in that part of the country, as just about every potential or existing RV owner will learn a lot about what’s involved in building a motorhome at the factory plant tour. You are right there on the factory floor, watching hundreds of employees at work, actually building motorhomes and yes, if you’ve ordered a new Tiffin, you can even watch your own coach being built!
4. What to Expect When Visiting Tiffin HQ/Allegro Campground in Red Bay
We didn’t really know what to expect from our experience (except what we’d heard from other owners that it was ‘well worth going’) and once we arrived and learned the ropes, we figured we’d share some tips that we learned to make it easier to plan for your first visit to Red Bay. For some reason, this info isn’t very well communicated by Tiffin or on their website, so stay tuned for our feedback on what to expect.
Well, there’s a lot of footage to wade through so I’d better get back to the editing suite! I’ll keep this post updated with the latest videos.
