Purchased new on August 9th 2017 from rv dealer 6 hours from home. 45 minutes on highway got message on dash "drive to clean". Stopped, called rv dealer. After 3 tries got live person who said that was normal. Go ahead and drive. Took 2 hours before message said cleaned. 1 hour from home message was back. Rv seemed low on power. Took to chassis dealer 3 days later. Spent 3 weeks in shop. Rv had more problems when we picked it up. Chassis has problems that are hard to diagnose. Coach is poor quality. Keep finding screws on the floor. Many hinges and hardware are loose because screws were stripped on installation. Wires hanging down everywhere underneath and inside. Door lock broken.laminate peeling everywhere. Bed is uncomfortable. When removed plastic from new mattress found mouse droppings all over it. Have had rv for 5 weeks now and still can't use due to repairs that are needed. Rv dealer has not helped nor offered any compensation. The original problem was a bad sensor on exhaust system. Dealer replaced egr valve, egr cooler, and turbo charger that did not have to replaced. Now we have a brand new engine that has had major disassembly and major components apart and replaced. Hardly a new rv anymore. Have not had a chance yet to test other components such as appliances etc... Would not buy a thor unit again. Very poor quality and assembly.

Purchased in August 2017. Use it to go to dog shows and agility trials. Ford transit diesel gets 14.5 mpg on average. I purchased this because I needed something reliable. I lack automotive/mechanical skills. I needed something that is easy to pack up and back up since I travel often by myself and w an old English sheepdog.I immediately determined that the hinge for cabinet doors was overkill. The door fell off after minimal use. Repaired using wood fill ( Home Depot). The closure for bathroom door dropped screws after several days of use. Repaired w a silicone glue that hardened and has held. So I did all the screws for the magnet that holds door closed. Silicone around shower basin since it had none. Repaired sliding drawer under bed with a new latch that I purchased off Amazon. Replaced all the slats under bed (IKEA). I had to cut off 1 in from the slats.Put a matress topper on top of the matress it came with. Replaced some gaskets around the storage compartments outside of coach. Lastly installed bump stops (Ford dealer installed but bought online). Overall I am very happy w my vehicle. After reading tips from other RVers on how to keep it cool in Fl. Sun and how to secure dog crate, I feel I have the right vehicle for 3 of us... hubby, dog and me. I love how easy it is to set up/ take down. Refrigerator,tv, micro, lights, water,ac, rear slide, awning ( love the auto retract feature if too windy, all work very well. No problems w window shades or sunroof. Love fuel economy. Slept on sofa. It’s short even w side bolsters out. 10,000 miles1.5 years old. Added window tinting to cab and purchased custom fit window reflecting shades. Gives me more interior room, easy to put up (suction cups) helps keep vehicle cool. Use both ceiling fans, battery operated fans to help AC. Dry camped for 4 days 85degrees. Also carries enough water in water storage tank. Store outdoors and use mothballs and furnace screens to keep out wasps. There needs to be insulation between generator and floor of vehicle. Too much heat comes off generator. Especially bad in summer if dry camping and using ac. Could use a door to open to let out some heat from that area. Bathroom is small unless you open door that closest off main living area from bedroom. Not well insulated from heat and cold but both heater and ac was good & we were very comfortable day and night. Convection/micro is good but placed too low. Sink & faucet in kitchen very nice.

Extremely poor workmanship , first day cabinet door fell off. W Pacheco batteries would not turn in had to replace solinoid switch, bought in Sept 2016 used once in Oct water heater did'nt work spent winter at dealers Finally got it back in May 2017 used twice every thing finally works. Oops filed fresh water tank for first time it leaked, found out that a valve was open the location not mentioned in poor owners manual which covers Class A, C, and B+. In 3 months the factory warranty expires, I've put about 200miles on it I' afraid the trip I plan wine a disaster. Wish me luck. Would I buy another Thor product you guess.
