Thor Motor Coach Introduces Challenger 37YT Motorhome

Elkhart, Indiana-based Thor Motor Coach’s latest floor plan in its Challenger series is the 37YT.

A Class A gas motorhome that is made to fit your aspirations has the power and dependability to travel the country during summer vacation or year-round, according to a company news release.

The 38-foot 1-inch Challenger 37YT offers triple slideouts with residential feel; dual opposing slideouts expand the living room area.

The expanding L-shaped leatherette sofa in the living area, Always-In-View 40-inch LED TV with sound bar, and electric fireplace provide a place for entertaining.

The Dream Dinette booth is located campside, giving way to views and counter work space is not an issue with the solid surface countertop spanning the entire length of the kitchen.

The 37YT provides ample storage, whether it’s in the Whirlpool stainless steel refrigerator, the overhead cabinets, or pull-out drawers.

The master bedroom features a walk-around Denver Mattress king size bed, multiple wardrobe closets, and 32-inch television.

The en-suite bathroom features a large shower with skylight and dual vanities with mirrored medicine cabinets above that sprawl the entire bathroom wall, the release continued.

Built on the Ford F-53 motorhome chassis, the 37YT hosts a 6.8-liter V10 engine with 320 horsepower and 460 pounds-feet of torque, and a six-speed transmission, which makes a huge difference while driving on the highway, according to the release.

A layer of neoprene within the foundation and synced drive shafts reduce vibration. And with invisible paint protection on the front, aluminum wheels, and Sikkens full-body paint packages, the Challenger will look great for years to come.
