GAFFNEY, SC, Jan. 13, 2021—Two of the RV industry’s most revered and renowned names are coming together to create an innovative new version of one of the industry’s most luxurious models.

The 2021 40IH version of Tiffin’s Phaeton is available on a new XCR Super Raised Rail Chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC). Offering the tallest rail configuration in the industry, FCCC’s XCR Super Raised Rail chassis helps the 2021 Phaeton IH deliver maximum storage and a flat coach floor from end to end. Tiffin and FCCC debuted the 2021 Phaeton 40IH at this week’s Tampa RV SuperShow.

“We are thrilled to partner with Tiffin on the 2021 Phaeton 40IH – it’s a world-class model we believe represents and embodies the very best of what both these iconic and legendary brands have to offer,” said Jeremy Buckmeier, RV Product Manager for FCCC. “This combination is built to deliver popular amenities and best-in-class storage, along with a pleasant automotive driving experience, to RVers who deserve and expect the best.”

The XCR Super Raised Rail powering the 2021 Phaeton 40IH comes equipped with a Cummins L9 engine generating up to 450 horsepower and 1,250 lb-ft of torque, giving the coach greater towing capacity and the power to handle challenging grades – without sacrificing fuel economy.

In addition, the XCR Super Raised Rail comes equipped with all of FCCC’s most innovative features, including:

●      DriveTech, which combines ergonomic steering, easy-to-reach column-mounted controls and Optiview’s all-digital gauge display to deliver an industry-leading automotive driving experience

●      RoadWatch and its full suite of safety technologies, including Electronic Stability Control, Roll Stability Control, Collision Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control and Automatic Traction Control

●      V-Ride rear suspension system and its rating of up to 24,000 pounds, which enables the Phaeton to carry more luxury amenities with superior roll stability, smoother ride and more predictable handling

●      Independent front suspension with 60-degree wheel cut, which offers easier maneuverability, less backing up and a more confident driving experience

A driving experience Tiffin and FCCC customers have come to expect will be backed by a support network they deserve, of course, in the form of FCCC’s 24/7 Direct customer support and Oasis Service Network. Oasis offers Phaeton owners access to 450-plus Freightliner-branded service locations, as well as 24/7 Direct access to factory service advisors with an average of 20 years’ experience.
