Elkhart, Indiana-based Thor Motor Coach introduced the 2019 line of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based Quantum Class C motorhome at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania, September 12-16, 2018.
The Quantum Sprinter was designed for luxurious living and priced to fit anyone’s budget from families buying their first motorhome to full-timers and snowbirds looking for a roaming dream home. No matter how you choose to spend your time or money, the Quantum fits your needs, according to a company news release.
Two Quantum floor plans are available for 2019—the KM24 and the all-new CR24.
The Quantum CR24 makes its debut with a long list of standard and optional features which are made to fit any lifestyle or budget.
The living area of the motorhome is the focal point with a two-person dinette and theater seats in a space traditionally only built to support a sofa.
Luxury living is fully supported with the solid wood interior cabinets offered in an artisan cherry or prestige maple finish.
The kitchen features a solid surface countertop and stainless steel sink.
The overhead bunk is large enough for two people, while the full walk-around bed in the bedroom is cozy and comfortable.
To accent, the increased space on the living side, a big increase in the storage side is also part of this new design. A full wardrobe with pull out hanging space provides the room RVers want when it’s time to hit the road.
Other key features of the all-new Quantum CR24 model include:
- Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis
- 3.0L V6 188HP 325 lb-ft torque
- Double door gas/electric RV refrigerator with smoked acrylic panel inserts

The Quantum is fully equipped, with only a few optional features, the biggest being a full-body paint package with protective mask.
Other optional items include a 12-volt attic fan w/cover in cab-over bunk, 15,000 BTU roof front air conditioner, 32-inch TV in bedroom, holding tanks with heat pads, Onan RV QD 3200 diesel generator, and second auxiliary house battery.

“Based on our research of the market and the buyers, we find that many of the Sprinter-based buyers are traveling with two people,” commented Gary Stanton, product manager at Thor Motor Coach.
“We have increased the living area which has helped encourage longer trips and more time camping, as people have more room to spread out.”
If you can’t make it out to the show, Thor Motor Coach has 360-degree tours available on their website.
