BURLINGTON, Iowa (February 28, 2017)
— Tiffin Motorhomes
, prides itself in designing and building some of the most innovative and luxurious recreational vehicles in the market. Tiffin has decided to offer additional high-end features to its line-up and to partner with Winegard to offer the Winegard ConnecT Long Range, High Performance WiFi Extender + 4G LTE
as an option on all 2017 models. Additionally, Tiffin will pre-wire for Winegard ConnecT on all of its 2017 models that do not receive the Winegard ConnecT 4G1 option.
â€œWith the continued demand for connectivity via WiFi and LTE, it makes sense for Tiffin Motor Homes to include Winegard ConnecT pre-wire for all class â€œAâ€ coaches and offer the Winegard ConnecT as a factory installed option.â€ Andy Baer, Tiffin Motor Homes added, â€œOur goal is to offer choices for our customers that address todayâ€™s opportunities and tomorrowâ€™s questions. Winegard has been a great long term partner for us and has stepped out in front of the connectivity demand by developing a product that our purchase intenders want. By offering both the ConnecT as a factory option and including the pre-wire as standard, we remove the burden of wiring from the dealer.â€
â€œTiffin is one of the leading original equipment manufacturers in the U.S. and weâ€™re proud to be partnering with leading OEMs like Tiffin on our newest products,â€ said Keith Larson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Winegard RV Products. â€œThey recognized that without the pre-wire, installations can be difficult for the dealer, as well as costly for the RV owner, both of which are being addressed, because of Tiffinâ€™s dedication to superior customer service.â€
Designed for the mobile environment, the Winegard ConnecT increases the range of existing WiFi hotspots. This long-range, high-performance WiFi extender captures available WiFi signal and re-broadcasts it throughout the RV for a secure connection at the fastest speed available. When WiFi is not available, the ConnecT utilizes high-gain 4G LTE antennas to connect to a nationwide data network and provide connectivity in areas where cell coverage may be weak or not available (monthly fee applies).
