Thor Motor Coach Report Successful RV Shows

From coast-to-coast, motorhomes from Thor Motor Coach have been a hit of retail RV shows.

Thor-Motor-Coach-RUV-Best-RV-Year“Every RV show so far this year is getting positive feedback,” said Joel Grimm, national sales manager for Class C and Class A gas motorhomes, in a company news release.

“Consumers are really enjoying the innovative product changes we are engineering into our gas-powered motorhomes,”

The new Axis and Vegas Recreational Utility Vehicle (RUV) Class A motorhomes have been the talk of the show circuit, said Grimm.

Sized like a large SUV, the unit measures just over 25 feet long, eight feet wide, and 11 feet tall, helping it fit into the tightest of spaces most traditional RVs can’t go. These small dimensions lower the overall center of gravity, to help safety and stability while driving.

A proven and powerful Ford V-10 engine has plenty of muscle for smooth highway merging, while sipping fuel along the way. A contemporary exterior with aerodynamic windshield and cap is extenuated by Thor Motor Coach’s exclusive HD-MAX, High-Definition exterior.

“These compact motorhomes continue to draw new people to the RV lifestyle,” he added.

“The RUVs are targeted at the same market as large automobile-based SUVs. The RUV eliminates all of the shortcomings of a traditional SUV by providing a self-contained environment including kitchen, dining, bathroom and sleeping facilities in a small 25-foot package.”

Other motorhomes that have had a major impact this show season include the Outlaw Toyhauler, now with a complete line-up of Class A and Class C motorhomes ranging from 29 to 38 feet. The new 2014 Tuscany Class A motorhomes have the diesel market fired up with all new exteriors and interiors, said Grimm.

For 2014, 40-foot Tuscany motorhomes now have all the high-end features found in the larger Tuscany tag axle models, including the Aqua-Hot hydronic furnace and water heating, ZF Independent Front Suspension and custom tile floor inlays.

“The Tuscany and Tuscany XTE are dominant players in today’s diesel market. Combined with the sweeping success of the already best-selling Palazzo and we have the ultimate one-two-three punch,” said Adam Gudger, national sales manager for Class A diesel motorhomes.

“All of our motorhomes are built with input and direction from our dealers and the owners which have helped us gain significant market share increases.”

Worth Pondering…

There is in all things a pattern that is part of our universe. It has symmetry, elegance, and graced— those qualities you find always in that which the true artist captures. You can find it the turning of the seasons, in the way sand trails along a ridge…
