Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is debuting new additions to the Tuscany XTE, Hurricane, Four Winds, Axis, Windsport, Chateau and Vegas motorhomes at the Annual RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky this week.
The Tuscany XTE 40AX focuses on entertaining the masses. Reclining theater seats are positioned directly across from a 60-inch LED Smart HDTV. The TV retracts into the counter below when it’s not in use, giving way to a beautiful view of the outdoors. The 40AX also features an additional 40-inch LED TV, which is convenient when sitting down at the dinner table. Preparing meals and storing the leftovers is a breeze with the residential kitchen appliances, standard in every Tuscany XTE motorhome. The custom-built Amish cabinetry will amaze and delight, looking like it came out of a coach costing thousands of dollars more.
The Tuscany XTE motorhome line-up gains not one, but two new floor plans with the addition of the 40BX. It’s the first in the XTE line-up to offer bunk beds. Bunk beds have been so popular in gas motorhomes that it only made sense Thor Motor Coach introduced it to their Class A diesels. TMC puts a twist of their own by implementing a unique three-door arrangement that gives the bunk area complete privacy from the living area of the coach. Your kids will feel like they truly have a bedroom of their own, especially when it comes time to watching their favorite cartoon or DVD on their own bunk TV.
Thor Motor Coach has created a better solution to those wanting a coach with two bathrooms.
The Hurricane and Windsport models now have a “half-and-a-bath” in the 35C floor plan. Instead of placing the full bathroom in the rear and the half bathroom in the middle, they switched the locations. You can enjoy true privacy and not have your guests trudging through your bedroom to take a shower. TMC paid close attention to owners’ needs with this floor plan and created an astounding amount of walk space in the bedroom, a multitude of dresser and closet space, and a variety of sleeping areas. TMC didn’t forget the entertainment aspect and answered it with theater seating and the Always-in-View™ 40-inch LED TV.
Thor Motor Coach’s “Recreational Utility Vehicle”, referred to as the RUV, continues to grow with the addition of the 25.2, available in Axis and Vegas RUV brands. The RUV is sized like a large SUV, and drives like one, but offers so much more. The 25.2 is the first in the line-up to feature a bedroom slideout that houses a walk-around queen size bed with a Denver Mattress. The innovative L-shaped sofa with a removable pedestal table provides a place to eat, a place to watch TV, or a place to sleep.
Excitement surrounds the 29G, which is available in both Four Winds and Chateau motorhomes. Thor Motor Coach understands Class C owners want convenient and functional amenities outside as much as they do inside. To respond to the demands, they now offer an exterior kitchen as standard on the 29G. The exterior kitchen features a refrigerator, kitchen sink and portable gas grill. To go the extra step, you can opt for an exterior 32-inch TV as well.
“The number one reason people buy one motorhome over another is because the floor plan fit their needs or their lifestyle,” said Gary Stanton, Product Manager at Thor Motor Coach. “We continually push ourselves to build new and innovative models for our valued dealer partners. We want them excited about the new line-up and to share their enthusiasm with the consumer.”
Thor Motor Coach reported record retail sales for units sold at the PRVCA Hershey RV Show in Hershey, PA on September 19-23, 2012.
“The customer response for our motorhomes was amazing. We had people in the Thor Motor Coach display from the time the show opened until it closed. ”, remarked Joel Grimm, National Sales Manager for gas motorhomes at Thor Motor Coach.
The most sought after and talked about addition at the RV show was Thor Motor Coach’s new HD-MAX™ exterior packages. HD-MAX™ is a line of full color exterior décor packages that provide the look and feel of a full body paint package, but for thousands of dollars less. HD-MAX™ exteriors is available on Thor Motor Coach’s A.C.E., Hurricane, & Windsport Class A motorhomes, Four Winds and Chateau Class C motorhomes, along with the Siesta and Citation Class B Plus motorhomes.
The redesigned Hurricane and Windsport Class A motorhomes, shown to the public for the first time at Hershey, made a spectacular debut. The all new 34E rear bath and a half floorplan lead the way in sales for those respective brands.
Thor Motor Coach’s best selling A.C.E. brand of New Class A Motorhomes continued its streak of success with record sales, while the Palazzo line of compact diesel pusher motorhomes attracted buyers and the attention of the media as it continues to grow in strength and popularity. The Tuscany and Tuscany XTE luxury diesel pushers were a hit with the best combination of content and price for a higher-line diesel motorhome.
The new 31L Four Winds and Chateau Class C Motorhomes opened up a new perspective on Class C travel, with more interior living space than most Class A motorhomes. The new 29TB, triple slide, Siesta and Citation New Class B Plus Motorhomes had completely new interiors with upgrade features including optional leveling jacks, Firestone ride-rite air suspension, and HD-MAX™ exteriors.
“The commitment to our valued dealers and retail customers, focus on innovative customer service programs, and the development of “must have” products is generating added excitement for Thor Motor Coach products”, commented Dana Simon, Vice President of sales at Thor Motor Coach.
