The size of our Vegas 24.1 is perfect for parking in metro areas, running errands then slipping back into the camp ground; easy to drive, it handles like a Suburban. The Ford chassis is awesome: the 6.8L V-10 engine pulls like a locomotive! Six speeds allow a gear for every hilly situation without over-revving or bogging the engine. Smaller, lighter weight class A on a proven chassis with great towing capabilities, and a low center of gravity for SUV-like handling, makes for an attractive package. Heated tanks allow easy 3 season use. Rear and side mirror cameras are great! Fold-down laptop space for the passenger is awesome! Wish every RV had it! Perfect size between teenie Class B and a 48-foot bus and handles better than a Class C ever could. The 24.1 is a great model because you can access the king-size bed on the road anytime without having to stop and extend a slide. Doors on the bathroom effectively double the size of the area when open and allow privacy, front and rear. Huge panoramic windshield, great swivel captain chairs up front, perfect drop down bed and couch that together sleeps 3 additional people. Outdoor entertainment system, outside shower, 3 burner stove, convection oven, microwave, great sleep area for master room! Plenty of room inside and out for two, we would never need anything larger. We owned an older Class C before and disliked the overhang at the front and sides of the cab, limiting the view. Shower is nominal (27” x 27”) and so is kitchen sink. Headlights and fog lights are almost impossible to access and provide truly inferior illumination, even after replacing all the bulbs with high-end, high-watt LEDs. The tiny diameter of the lights is the problem; a perfect example of functionality being sacrificed for styling aesthetics. And changing them to anything else would take some major fabrication way beyond the average RVer’s capabilities. Thor’s quality control also leaves a lot to be desired: fresh water tank hole shavings plugged the screen at the water pump reducing shower and faucet pressures to a mere trickle, kitchen faucet hold-down ring broken, factory worker pistachio shells found under the master bed, under the kitchen sink and even in the engine compartment under the doghouse!!! Outside are decals that split and crack within the first year because Thor was too cheap to paint them on or use UV-resistant decal material and clear-coat them with UV-resistant clear-coat, kitchen cabinets that won’t stay shut around a corner because of misalignment of the catches, wallpaper in the bathroom) that peels up at the first shower (who puts wallpaper in a hot humid wet area???), etc. Thor mediocrity atop a truly exception chassis and drive train. To me, it was worth it, overall, and I would make the purchase again. But plan on spending a fair amount of time and money to correct the factory’s inferior quality control.

We had to have a wall reattached that was falling off: trim falls off while I’m cooking: the upholstery is disintegrating; the flooring is peeling up, and the stripping on the slide out is peeling up. We have to do constant maintenance just to use the RV.

If you want junk you buy Thor. If you want poor quality, poor workmanship and leaks, buy a Thor. We purchased in 2018 and have hardly used the RV. It only has about 6,500 miles on it and we got it new having 2,200 miles on it from driving from the factory. Both slides are sealed horribly and leak every time it rains. The insulation and overall sealing is awful. There are several through holes which are not sealed. The electrical connections are the worst I have ever seen and almost burned the Rv up. The black holding tank almost fell off due to poor supports. All the rails for the sliding door and the curtains are screwed into the ceiling fiber with zero backing. The lights and other electrical wires were excessively long and dangling. The windows leak air and when it rains. The kitchen sink drain is improperly installed. The drain needs to have a slop down and it’s installed going up and in an unreachable location to fix without tearing out half the kitchen. Basically this Thir RV is a POS and I would advise to not purchase a Thor product. Read the reviews anc you will see the commonality in issues with Thor RV’s

The Mercedes chassis & cab have had excellent performance, however Thor's quality control regarding workmanship and quality of furnishings and equipment is horrible! *The captain's seats and the couch faux leather upholstery pealed with zero compensation or help from Thor. *The Axxera radio and backup camera is unusable junk. *The bathroom faucet was missing fasteners. *All the wiring under the coach has unprotected squeeze connectors, many of which had to be replaced. *The coach is deafeningly noisy on the highway. *Access to the bathroom is almost impossible when the slides are in. *Obviously no Thor engineer has ever tried to access the spare tire buried under the coach when needed for a flat repair! ....I could go on, but the above at least makes clear that Thor has no conscience when it comes to charging premium $ for shoddy products.

If you want to buy junk, you buy Thor. Purchased new summer 2018. Used very little, garaged. There’s more unsealed and leaking point than a spaghetti strainer. The slides leak air and water. Windows leak air and water. The black tank almost fell off because of sloppy installation thank god I spotted a leak on a trip. The outlets are all hooked together so if you try and have the toaster on and another appliance the breaker trips. Horrible insulation and interior trim. Cheap countertops with sharpe edges. Cheap faucets already changed both. Wiring hanging loose all throughout undercarriage. If you’re looking to purchase a motorhome, DO NOT PURCHASE A THOR PRODUCT.

2017 Thor Outlaw 37BG Toy Hauler Class A Motorhome has it all – low mileage, a spacious 13’6″ garage, and a comfortable interior that sleeps up to 10 people. The automatic levelling jacks and touchpad controls make setup a breeze, and the dual low-profile roof air conditioners and 6,000 BTU air conditioner in the garage will keep you comfortable on the road. The 5.5 kW Onan gas gen and 1800-watt inverter provide all the amenities of a home, and the basement pass-through storage makes it easy to bring all your gear.

I love this RV. I use to drive school busses but this RV is actually fun to drive . I live in the Sierra foothills with lots of mountain curves and steep hills and she mauvers great. I've been evacuated a couple of times due to our forrest fires and this RV has been a life saver for me, literally. I've always wanted solar but I've never been in a situation where I didn't have shore power. Being evacuated for 2 weeks I would definitely change the toliet to a composting system. After being settled in my boondocking area I'd have to pack up or move items to drive to dumping station. In September 2022 I had new house batteries and the appliances checked so she's ready for camping.

Drove great on the winding (scary) Pacific Coast Highway, as well as small towns, fitting in any parking spot. We intentionally chose to not have sliders due to fear of having issues. I would add more electrical outlets, removing the chair & having the passenger seat swivel.
