Barry---I really lusted for the Breeze 28BR when it first came out in 2011.  It was out of my price range but the idea of a pusher on a 29'+ chassis was unique.
As it turned out, so unique that it did not work out well.  Guess you cant put a zillion pound Maxforce diesel engine hanging off a chassis that only has a wheelbase of
152 inches (wow)  Thats only a 43% WB to overall length ratio.  I understand the porpoising was so bad that some delivery drivers would not take them to dealers.
Tiffin tried for 3 years to fix the problem but it never went completely away.  I also understand that folks had questions about the Maxforce engine and reliability??
They discontinued the 28BR after 3 years.

When I was at PC HQ recently, there was Breeze 28BR on the lot from a trade-in.

No kidding, I worked on a pusher back in the 90's on a 14 foot chassis.  Underpowered, but was cute.



I had a VW shop back then.  Pretty sure it had the same wheels, but it was red. And had wipers.  :cool
