My wife and I researched motorhomes for about 2 years before we settled on the 24FE. Overall its a great machine, perfect for two adults and the occasional grandchild. We especially like the floor plan. Has room to move around in, pretty good storage capacity, usable bathroom and shower, love the slide out queen size bed. Installed a second tv in the bedroom area so both tv's are tied into a central entertainment area over the entry door. Drives great and its a length my wife feels comfortable driving. Mileage is 10 miles per gallon as expected. Haven't towed anything yet but the hitch setup looks capable of towing most things. For the money it's a loaded machine. Last camping trip I took I woke up floating on my air mattress....no more of that nonsense. Comes solar prepped so I'm installing a solar panel next. Fuse panel is in a low position on the side of the bed but accessible. Highly recommend the Freedom Elite.

Bought a 2019 Freedom Elite 24 FE Sprinter-Mercedes Engine was great, but Thor cabin was horrible. Quality and workmanship of the cabinets, slides on doors, wiring under dinnette found wadded up in bag, kitchen plumbing leaked, ceiling fans went out first year. Traded it in after four years and numerous repairs. Would not own another rv with construction by Thor.

What a piece of JUNK. It probably would be easier to say what does work on my little over a year old 2022 Thor Freedom Elite. The expression lipstick on a pig is what you get with a Thor Motor home. They look nice on the showroom floor, but you are looking at the lipstick. Own it for a year, use it a couple of times and the terrible quality of materials and the shoddy workmanship shine through. The propane gauge reads empty when the tank is 2/3 full. The black water tank reeds full when it is less than 1/4 full. The formica counter top and table are delaminating. The table is broke again - fixed twice before. The paneling is so cheap (more like cardboard than real wood), and so poorly stapled that it is literally falling off the walls. Screws that were screwed into the super cheap walls have all ripped out and there is no good repair because the panel boards are paper thin and the cheapest quality wood like material they won’t hold a screw even with epoxy or wood glue. The blinds for example are literally falling off the walls and you can’t get the screws to hold by any means. The plastic film (super cheap) is pealing off the walls in numerous places, because the glue they used can’t take the heat of Arizona. The microwave nearly fell out of its hole in the cabinet when its screws fell out. The shower floor support has given way and drops 2 inches ever time you step on it. They forgot to seal some places around the shower and there is water damage where they forgot to seal. The refrigerator door latch does close ever time. The bathroom door doesn’t close unless you move the wall back in place that holds the door - the wall literally moves back and forth. The opening roof vents are so cheap plastic and the plastic has already failed. Talking with another owner they said they carry two spares and a roll of duck tape. That you need the duck tape because the two spares are not enough if you get a light hail storm it will crack all the vents and you get water everywhere if you don’t tape them up. The other two plumbing vents (again such cheap thin plastic) have already broken off in the wind. We were lied to when we were told Thor was a quality built motor home. There is no quality in any aspect of this piece of junk. Just try using the shower head. The motor home sites tell you to replace that right away as they can’t even put in a shower head that works.

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.

Lived in 2017 Thor Freedom Elite 23H for 2 years with an 80lb dog, 6’3” & 5’3” adults, traveling cross-country. 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.

Bought the 2017 Freedom Elite 23H from a dealer as a consignment. Pros: It drives very smoothly & fits anywhere. There's always availability for this compact size. I did not want an extention due to fear of potential issues. It is comfortable driving cross-country full-time , 2 + year, 2 adults & a large 70 lb dog. No issues. Cons: It needs more electrical outlets. I would extend floor space by removing the single chair; allow the passenger seat to rotate ; add a table that folds up to use as needed, like the extension attached to the stove. The overhead bunk is being used for storage only because it would be troublesome for me to frequently use the restroom at night. The bed is full size 75"x54" & the mattress has been replaced to firm memory foam. The dog likes having the dinette as a bed which is comfortable for both of us to snuggle. I didn't want to give a low factory warranty / support a low score to drive the overall score down but we haven't used nor needed it. Awning has been sufficient for shade. Storage has been ample for me but not for someone with hobbies such as painting & guns. If you only have clothes, toiletries & laptops then it's roomy.

Hi All: I've had five motorhomes in my life and numerous campers. With the two Thor's I have had and currently have, I've had few problems. From what I read I am one of the lucky ones. Today I would like to talk about support. I had a few routine questions after reading an article on the BIM 160. Simple questions I thought. Like where is it? The person on the other end said well I can't tell you. Each coach is different. That seems kind of strange I said. Don't your techs use some sort of plan when they build these things. To which she stated no. She then said it might be in the battery compartment to which I said no not there. I then said let's get past that. Can you tell me at what voltage the BIM will cut in to charge the chassis battery? To which she use3d the old "that's a chassis manufacturer thing." When I tried to explain that the BIM determines this and it's installed by Thor she got belligerent and talked over me. Calling the help line was a complete waste of time. This person probably never stepped in a motorhome and has been hired to talk knowledgably about them. Don't waste your time calling them.

As with most RVs the road wear is starting to show, things are loosening up but only 2 drawer keepers have broken. Fridge has popped out a bit and the igniter freezers often. The fridge has trouble staying lit on propane which is a common problem in RVs. We love thw small size that doesn't feel small. Full bathroom with a large shower and you don't have to pick the bed up to get to the bathroom!
