Looking at a couple of 2014 Thors on a Ford chassis. 26 footers. Wondering what other members think.

My brother had one, and the motor went kaput. But he drove it hard, and wasn’t religiously keeping up with maintenance.

We have a 2015 ACE 30.1 and have been happy with it. Little things have needed to be addressed but nothing I couldn't take care of myself. Still consider it a good buy and value for the money. Jim.

At 26' that would be a coach built on a Ford E series cutaway chassis. Either an E350 or 450. Engine will be a Triton 6.8L V10 with 2 valve heads and a five speed transmission. Can't speak for the E series chassis but my 2006 Ford F-53 has never been a problem. Maintenance has been pretty simple. Nothing overly exotic or out of the ordinary. Not much different than a Ford F series gas pickup of an E series van.

Regarding the Thor side of the rig (the House), I've own my Thor product since April 2011 and have enjoy every minute out on the road. The house hasn't been problem free but we've never had to come home early from a trip and the rig has never seem the parking lot of an RV Service Center.
