RE: $500,000 Motorhome. Class A? or would it be a C.

I saw a special on how they build these. they are quite impressive. They may not have amenities that we are have grown accustomed to. But, that clientele is not looking for what we find essential. A Unimog will take someone to places most of us will never see except for on tv. A 60" flat screen tv that we are watching in our Prevost while plugged in at an RV resort. :D

RE: Class A - Why so limited windows?

Generally, I want privacy when we are inside, the patio is for visiting and being in the open. MM. I must be more private, because I agree with this. When camping if we wish for a bit of privacy, we like to know we can simply move inside the motorhome. Our class c had a huge window by the booth which I liked while inside, but did not care for the 'view' from the outside. Often times we would find ourselves lowering the blind because if not it would place us on display to the campers nearby. However, tinting the windows would have certainly helped.

RE: What is Unique To Your Coach?

Another minor convenience of the Thor that I like compared to other A's I have looked at is the front grill opening. I love how the entire front opens up for a class a gasser. I know Forest River's likewise have a similar opening. But I have seen other A's that have a small hood opening similar to those on class c's.

RE: What is Unique To Your Coach?

Well, getting back to the original thread context...I like the small 'mud room' inside the door. We always end up having loads of sneakers, flip flops, boat shoes, etc to store in our motorhome when the kids are along. I love just throwing them all into the mudroom. I like how it has an inside light and a removable plug for washing it out. We for obvious reasons hang an air deodorizer in there too.

RE: Thor ACE ahead of the competition

Effy, it's pointless. Some people just don't get the whole WANT TO BUY NEW point of this thread. Here goes- Name another, better NEW class a for under $100K that is head and shoulders above the ACE in quality...

RE: Best Satellite for class "A"

Yes. I was talked out of the 'dome' satellite for the Dish Traveler linked above. It doesn't work in motion. But I was told the domes are glitchy while in motion and the signal quality is not as good.

RE: What are the advantages of frameless windows?

We've had our Fuzion since March, and we've already lost 2 of those beautiful frameless windows just driving down the interstate. We've owned 3 campers, and have never had this problem. Needless to say, I'm not a fan. I was wondering if they can be kept open while moving.

RE: Thor ACE ahead of the competition

People will always defend their poor choices! As an Owner of an ACE I did a lot of research before buying. I feel good about my purchase. All I can tell you is that in my real world experience of owning 2, I have had no major issues and happy with Thor as a Company. I love our 29.2. Is the build quality comparable to a high end rig, of course not. But is it on par with the rest in the same genre, yes. Would I buy a Palazzo, no. Would I buy a Thor again, yes if it was the right model. I really scrutinized every unit in the same price point. FR3, Vista, Pursuit, bay star, terra, etc. And I will say this, the innovation of Thor is spot on. Is there an element of ready, shoot, aim? Yes. So in that sense I would agree that buyers need to look past the shiny bits. But frankly all of them in the same range are built with the same quality. All of them, and I think anyone who thinks otherwise in this price range is kidding themselves. Based on a level playing field for build quality, often you are left with a better d├ęcor, or more innovative options, like electric bunks and laptop work stations, mud room, and massive storage and the ACE hit the mark on every one. So in that sense and my painless ownership thus far, I would say I made a good decision. Great post Effy. Find me a better new coach for under $100K. That is the catch. I was joking yesterday tailgating in the RV lot with guys about our new ACE. I mentioned that it may not be the biggest, fanciest, best built class a out there. But for under $90K, it was I felt the best new unit available. And yes, I love all the 'little features'. Heck the guy in the Newmar DP next to me watched me run the electric canopy in and out. He was jealous! (I found that laughable actually) But there will always be the argument that for $125K one can buy this. Well, then again a DP is necessary if you are going to tow. And don't forget you also need this...that...throw this in too...oh yeah, this is also a necessity. :D First thing is to determine how much you wish to spend and then find the best unit in that price range. ;) And FWIW DSDP, I find spending $400K on a motorhome to be just as ridiculous. I'd rather invest that money into a nice property (4000 ft2 vs 400ft2) that will not drop in value like a motorhome.

How about 26' 26 foot Winnebago I love this motorhome! It is not quite big enough for our needs. But I wish it was. So retro= cool!

RE: I love my Power Awning

My wife could never operate a manual awning if a storm came up and I were off somewhere. The awning would be toast. She can push a button though. This is a true fact. I also like the convenience of being able to close it early in the morning if the wind suddenly picks up. Having to go outside at 3A to close the manual awning in high winds while people are sleeping...well, you get it.

RE: Music in campground until 4:30 AM !!!!

My inside stereo uses the front/rear fader to control sound to the outside speakers. I sometimes forget to adjust it when first setting up, turn on the stereo inside without realizing I'm blasting away outside. This too. In order to adjust brightness on the bedside radio, it must be turned on. Volume level on 30 at 2A is not a good thing to both inside and outside campers.

RE: Motorhomes with aluminium outer skin?

I know this is the Class A forum, but our Class C Lazy Daze has aircraft grade aluminum all around (and the roof), covered with aircraft grade paint. Lazy Daze...they don't count. lol They are the gem of the Class C's!

RE: Thor Ace 30.2 or jayco Greyhawk 31fs

If buying new, I think Thor has ironed out most of it's problems. Well at least those that I read about, mine does not have. I can honestly say a class c will be hotter than an a above the doghouse. The a sets higher and allows more air to flow. At least that has been our experience. We have driven our a for the past month in pretty warm 80+ temps and we have had the a/c on the first level of the dial and felt cold. With a choice of the two from experience I would never pick a class c over an a. I know that is batting a hornets nest. But there is not one thing I can think was better about our c. A class a has been a better experience(for us) in every way.

RE: Staying at Walmarts and such

Why not stay at a campground? Most have a late arrival registration process, are usually safe, have hookups, and it helps the local economy. Camp grounds are an option I just dont know how far we will get. And this trip is already costing enough so we were just thinking we would save where we can if we can. Safety is number one priority thats why I am asking opinions. I am new to the MH thing and still learning the secrets :) Okay now learn the secret of the search function on this forum. In the box labelled search: type the words Walmart Parking 11 pages of info will come up. Read each thread a little to see if it answers your question. Surprised it took until the second page to get the first wise$#! comment. :R

RE: What are the advantages of frameless windows?

We have dual pane frameless windows. No special maintenance is required. They just look nice. Ours open on the bottom. We never open the windows anyway so not an issue for us. We have 4 roof fans which circulates the air nicely. How do you circulate? Do you have two fans blow in and two out?

RE: What are the advantages of frameless windows?

I do like the appearance of the frameless windows. However they do seem to move less air than opening sliders. However, I am more apt to leave the motorhome with the frameless windows open than I did when I had sliders.

RE: I Love My Manual Awning

I love the simplicity, versatility and practicality of my run-of-the-mill manual pull-down awning. I love that it comes out when I want it to and it retracts when I want it to with nothing more than the flip of a lever and use of a hooked rod. It never fails me. I can pitch it as much as I please, this way or that way, for rain or for shade. I once envied others who have the electric, automatic awnings, thinking that those awnings were superior to mine -- no more -- I have witnessed and I have read of the many problems and limitations of the automatic awnings. Hail the manual awning. Bruce Wow, your enthusiasm for manually operated inanimate objects is breath taking. You are a true Luddite. You must get down right giddy when you find a wind up alarm clock or a push mower. LOL. Wow, such a personal demeaning, snotty coment. Bet your halarious when something of true importance comes up. ChopperBill, pull a chair by the fire and crack a beer. It was a joke. A great jab at sarcasm. Seriously...don't be so tight.

RE: I Love My Manual Awning

Bruce, by chance does your Nomad have an electric slide? If so, this appears to contradict your desire to keep things simple. Or do you crank it out by hand? lol

RE: We backed out of the deal

I agree with a statement earlier in here about trading units in. We traded our '02 for a new '15. I got a decent offer for my old and new motorhome and walked out feeling happy with the deal. When I went to pick up my new '15, they were working on my trade in. ???? Evidently there was water leaking into the bunk and it was rotting it's way out. WOW, I had no idea!!!! I would have felt horrible had I sold this to someone and used that money to buy a new motorhome. That would have been a tough position to be in. Although, it does appear the seller knew exactly what was going on in this case.
