When Tammy and Rodney Ripley bought their first Tiffin Phaeton 2007, Tammy’s parents were so impressed with the Tiffin products that they bought a 2008 Allegro Open Road. In 2014 Tammy and Rodney decided to join the Chesapeake Allegros Camping Club. The club members told them about how great the Tiffin Rallies are so they decided to register for the Sevierville Rally held in September.
Tammy asked her parents (Paul and Nancy McGee) if they wanted to go along and they said they would like to attend. The trip started with the Chesapeake Allegros Seafood Festival Weekend at Bar Harbor RV Park in Abingdon, Maryland. From there the two couples traveled to Sevierville with a stop in Natural Bridge, Virginia to break up the trip.
On Monday, they arrived at the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally. There were a lot of Tiffin coaches set up for attendees to look through. Paul and Nancy McGee found a coach they liked even before they all made it up to the Tiffin registration table. After registering and enjoying lunch both couples started looking through all the coaches and talking with a salesman from Tennessee RV (Ronn Tritto).
After a few days of deliberation on the coaches they wanted and a lot of negotiating, both couples made a deal on a trade in and a new coach around 4:30 pm on Thursday night. Paul and Nancy McGee bought a 2016 Allegro Open Road 36LA, Rodney and Tammy bought a 2016 Phaeton 40AH. Friday brought a day of paperwork; walk through on the coaches and transferring all of their items from their coaches to the new coaches. After a few glitches and repairs taken care of, both couples (parents and daughter and son in law) drove off the lot with new Tiffin Motorhomes. They stopped again at the Natural Bridge KOA this time with newer coaches than they had a week ago.
Thank you to Tiffin for the great rally and to Tennessee RV for hooking us up with our new coaches.
