Slip into the driver’s seat of a Tiffin Motorhomes’ 2011 Phaeton and the first thing you’ll notice is the redesigned, European-styled instrument panel. The left side has been raised for comfort and sports fewer controls. The integrated, contoured design is user-friendly with less searching for switches.
A lighter tan surrounds the grey-inlayed controls and a dark matte finish near the windshield minimizes day and night driving glare. The Phaeton provides adjustable seat belt brackets for additional comfort in the 2011 model.
The Phaeton is available in four floorplans ranging from 36-42 ft. The restyled front cap sports a flattened windshield as an additional design element to combat glare and distortion. The driver’s side rear-view mirror is mounted closer to the driver for safety and minimal vibration. The passenger-side mirror is mounted on an extended arm. Both mirrors are larger than previous models for increased driver’s visibility.
The rear cap also has been redesigned for 2011, including a large recessed opening for airflow, a smaller brake light and larger, lower taillights for added safety.
The Cummins 380 six-speed offers an additional 20 horsepower from the previous model. msrp ranges from $243,012 to $295,498 depending on length and choice of three chassis manufacturers: Freightliner, Spartan or PowerGlide. For more information, visit www.tiffinmotorhomes.com.
