Thor ACE gas motorhome - exterior


Thor says:  "It’s one of those things, it just made sense. We had so many requests from retail customers; we just had to do it. We think you are going to care, because we have taken our retail customers feedback and built a motorhome that can satisfy the wants and needs of the Class A motorhome and Class C motorhome buyer. The A.C.E. is an evolution of what customers want…"
 
Roaming Times' reader quote:
"We went to local RV dealer and looked at a Thor A.C.E - A and C Evolution. The Class C part of it is the drop down bed over the cab as far as I can see. Otherwise it looks much like a Class A, but I think that's a really nice feature of the ACE. Overall, I thought it was really nice and particularly good value for the money."  Marie F

Below:  RoamingTimes.com thinks this is a major - and really cool - feature of the ACE motorhome: "A full sized electric drop-down bed maximizes sleeping capacity and utilizes otherwise wasted space."

Below: RoamingTimes.com this is another cool feature: "The leatherette sofa converts from a comfortable seating area to a sleepable bed. The secret...No big gap in the mattress area like the less expensive jack-knife sofas in other coaches."

Diesel Pusher FanWhat a sexy diesel pusher... ;-)Re: Thor Motor Coachs New 2013 Tuscany 42WX Luxury Diesel Pushers
Motorhome Maxwell of Luxury MoI've been selling luxury motorhomes for some time now and the new Thor diesel motorhomes have quickly became the go to choice for our upscale diesel pusher customers. Hands down the best luxury motorhome for the money.Re: Thor Motor Coachs New 2013 Tuscany 42WX Luxury Diesel Pushers
JoeThis is a beautiful motorhome. Even has a fireplace option!Re: Thor Motor Coachs New 2013 Tuscany 42WX Luxury Diesel Pushers
ChrisWe were literally putting a deposit on a class C motorhome the day I came across the ACE EVO 29.1. We needed specific amenities of the C, specifically the overhead bunk for the kids, but I like to drive an A class coach and enjoy the comfort and all the storage space that goes along with it. We also needed a large towing capacity and space to work with our computers while on the road, and let's face it, we all want good looks and luxury! I emailed my wife the link to the ACE, and we were sold! Now that we are enjoying our ACE on our many long excursions we have never looked back. So far it is everything we expected and more. Plus, the response from the factory regarding parts and service has been exemplary, they actually assigned us our own representative for the life of our warranty. After RVing in motorhomes and travel trailers the past 25 years, this is a fresh new design and refreshing approach on customer service across the board!Re: Thor ACE gas motorhome
Kathy HSaw this at the Florida RV supershow earlier this year. Incredible value for money. Great concept having the drop-down bed available. Congrats Thor.Re: Thor ACE gas motorhome
PaulReally nice concept. We had a class A that used the over the cab space only for storage and a big TV and the vibration was so bad that the TV fell down. Nobody hurt but no thanks to the manufacturer. This is cool though. Good to use the space for something useful and put the modern flat screen TV somewhere else.Re: Thor ACE gas motorhome

DinaI loved this RV from the very first day. Engine still runs as quiet as a church mouse. Perfect for weekend get aways! If I have to find something, I'd have to say that if you are planning extended RVing trips it gets cramped when there are more than three constant companions and one great dane. :) Slide allows for a little extra room. Re-caulked the entire RV in 2006, but it didn't really need it. More of a precautionary thing. With regular maintenance this RV is a gem. Based upon your experiences, would you buy one of this manufacturer's RVs again?: Yes. Rating: 5/5. Thor, Four Winds, Class C
