Just purchased my 7th Motorhome. Asked the dealer to inspect thoroughly because I had traded in another . Basically fell apart as soon as I'm out the door. Called the factory, no response, nor with the dealer. Bathroom door won't shut, towel rack fell off the wall, closet shelf fell apart, tile floor peeling up, electric panel is installed askewed, table top wont stay fixed, extreme wind noise through side door, celing fan rattles and is installed improperly, bath door trim split, cabinet door cracked and misaligned, hooks holding bed up fell apart and allowed bed to hit wall, and the heater does not work....but it looks good from the outside [except where the paint job isn't complete.]

The dealer I bought it from did not do a PDI or even clean the unit. Had a 12 minute walk through Took it to the dealer to have warranty work done ie: satellite doesn't work, bolt coming up through the floor, dent in frame by windshield and just found out the 4 pin flat towing connector does not have power to the right tail light. When I took it to the dealer, which is 140 miles from home they kept it for six hours and said yes I need all those things but did nothing to fix any of the problems. Contacted Thor and they said take it to another dealer to check to see, what had already been confirmed to be a bad antenna by both a ford dealership and the rv dealer I bought the unit from, if the antenna is bad. Called other dealers and because I did not buy it from them they won't service it. I was told by many not to buy a Thor product and I should have listened to them.

I lived in this unit for 3 months while we traveled and visited family. The Ford element of this model is, by far and hands down, the best experience I could have had. It handled like a dream in rain, ice and snow. The motor is amazing. The dependability of the unit totally surprised me. It is an amazing vehicle. We loved it. The only area of critique is the way they build them inside to save weight. It makes for a little flimsier experience. You need to be careful. It does start to get small, but you find your rhythm AND it isn't a Class B which is twice the price and even smaller. This unit parks almost anywhere. I had a spare tire mount and bike rack on the back. I would pull into a Pilot, etc. and find a spot with grass on the drivers side and room to back over in the rear and put out the slide. Slept well and was comfortable. A little overkill on the TVs but we used the sleeper one with a Roku stick. Worked beautifully. Overall, this unit comes highly recommended. I am very pleased with our choice and now that we are selling, am sad to see it go.

Bought new 6/4/21. Delivered with broken BMPRO (control center) mount, skylight box not attached at factory, and the overhead center console dropped out of the ceiling while driving home to Colorado. Almost had an accident when that one happened. Coach door does not lock, as it was warped at delivery. High Pointe stove rattled so loud I thought it would break, delivered with two out of four pads missing. The top of the stove is not installed square, so the glass vibrates when on the highway. Sirius XM radio has an Antenna Fault and does not work. No one is accepting accountability for this one. I think the antenna was simply not connected at the build, or broken during assembly, but have no idea and no one is helping. This week I removed all of the drawers and found most of the glides installed with a single 3/8" screw and the catch installed on broken 1"X1" blocks that were stapled in and not glued. I had to repair all of them. Sawdust keeps appearing mysteriously on the bathroom floor and in the corner of the bedroom. I have only had contact with Thor on these issues twice, as they are extremely hard to get on the phone. One representative (Terry) was very attentive, but unable to do anything for me except ship a new BMPro mounting bracket directly to me (I got it). The other representative gave me phone numbers of Thor dealers to call and try to arrange a warranty service. No way in this market. Luckily, I have a dealer in Grand Junction that has been trying to help. They have been great. The selling center has not helped once. The Ford chassis and engine are fantastic. The 3.5 EcoTech engine is a dream to drive in the mountains, and AWD seems to function great. Gas mileage is about 12 now, but I think as it breaks in will improve. Goes easily with traffic on the interstates. I really think once all of these issues are resolved, I will have a fantastic little motorhome. I would recommend to any buyer to thoroughly go through your new coach for the above details and TEST drive your unit before you pay. For me, I installed a second solar panel and battery, but failed to have an inverter installed. I would highly recommend this as the generator works great, but is noisy for neighbors, even when boon docking.

I really cannot believe there is any quality control on there units. Parts used, such as bathroom sink, tv switch control, bed slates, etc are just the cheapest money can buy. My unit had spent way too much time in the shop during the first year. Look elsewhere

the concept is great, and my wife loves the floor plan. as for the "workmanship and quality control", they don't exist, the wiring under the unit was a mess,some of it wasn't hooked up,and some was to the wrong place. The mud flap was tied up with a plastic zip tie which was also holding up tail pipe for the generator, when the pipe got hot everything fell to the ground. the gray tank for the shower had the cut out piece at the top of tank fall in tank and ended up restricting the gate valve emptying the tank. the vent for the plumbing was restricted from working because some filings and putty were dropped in from the top making it impossible for the sinks to drain when both were full. the 7 way plug used when pulling a trailer was dangling by a wire, as was the propane hookup for a grill blowing in the wind, these are just a few the things I have addressed, dining room table great idea but total junk I completely overhauled it. I understand it is like an earth quake on the road things shake loose, I've had a number rvs', but I don't think I have ever seen kind of workmanship. I'm extremely disappointed. As far as the FORD TRANSIT goes, the motor is great power and mileage are super,however we are having lots of trouble with the exaust filter, we have been to 3 big FORD dealer ships, one of them we went to, made the comment this is the first one I've seen in an RV you are not supposed to let them idle with a "CHUCKLE". It is a lot of money to spend on something new for a good time, of 11000 miles in a year 3000 were a good time, we are seriously thinking about trading it in, talk about a waste of money!!!! Don't buy anything RV wise that has THOR on it, there is way too many of us having the same problems.
