It's Thursday afternoon, we finished work hit the road already left, Tennessee, we're currently Mississippi and our way to red Bay, Alabama home of Tiffin, motorhomes it's going to be super cool to go to the Tiffin factory and watch the coaches being built and learned so much more about the process of building motorhome and I'm also thinking, it will be really cool to meet a bunch of other tip and owners while we're there because I heard that's a neat part of being able to go there's campground, right there on site.

So there'll be lots of different Tiffin owners to share stories with and learn from and it'll be kind of fun to be in a campground that's, virtually all Tibetan Stu, little fella, be a unique experience, almost like a Tiffin rally be cool.

We've had the coach for two years now and not being in this part of the country.

We've never had the opportunity to go to the Tiffin manufacturer until now we thought would make the most of the opportunity of being there by having a couple little minor things done on our coach, nothing bad and nothing major.

But we just thought why not have it repaired Tiffin manufacturer instead of at a regular shop, but we've been really fortunate with the coach the last two years have minimal issues, but looking forward to getting a couple little tiny things fixed up here by the folks who build them I'm super happy with it for the last two years at very few issues with the coach, the couple non minor things we've had they've all been covered by warranty either by tech, or by our extended warranty.

But part of that I think is credit to the brand and Julie and I did a whole lot of research before we chose our coach.

And we just knowing that we were going to live in this full-time year-round.

We wanted to make sure we chose a coach that had a reputation for reliability, durability and a brand that had a great reputation for taking care of their customers after they sell.

And though for plan is always going to be a very important factor, knowing that you're going to be taken care of by the manufacturer is a big consideration as well.

When you're looking at a code, almost there, we only have 11 miles to go where we're still a Mississippi red babe just over the border.

Can you cross out of Mississippi and Alabama that I gave the coach and watched yesterday's I knew that when we're gonna show up with all these other people with similar coaches, I didn't want to be that guy with a really dirty gross coach when everyone else has had their nice clean coaches.

So especially was are the things we wanted to have a look that was a piece, some of the paint too so I wanted to watch that, but definitely wanted to know the coach nice and clean for showing up for this and I'm, very happy to see that we did not get any rain.

Even though it was in the forecast.

There was no rain on the drive down today.

So you should be able to show up a spot free that was pretty funny I, don't know, if you happen to see the Alabama sign that was the most rundown poor quality state, borders, I have seen in our entire travel.

It was completely bent over and down.

And all the wording was faded away.

That was a sad sad.

Welcome to Alabama sign.

The Tiffin service campground let's.

Go get checked in you'll, be hanging out here at red bay for the next few days, doing a tour of the Tiffin manufacturing plant and the paint shop where they build and paint new coaches.

And having the service departments do some repairs on our coach we'll, be sharing our experience at each of these.

So keep an eye out for more videos.

Right here at our beloved TV.
