There are quite a few 2020 Class A gas motorhomes well suited to satisfy the desire for a cross-country adventure touring the country. Today, let’s take a closer look at 5 floorplans, featuring a single wall slide to open up their cabins and create a roomy living space.
But first– exactly what is a wall slide? It’s a slide-out where one full side of the RV pulls out to create more living area space. These slides are beasts, and will expand almost the entire length of the RV, from behind the driver’s seat all the way to the end of the motorhome.
All 5 of these motorhomes featured here share a few notable characteristics—a Ford F53 chassis with a 6.8L Triton V10 engine. And in the back: a tow hitch rating easily capable of towing your car, SUV, or truck. These Class A gas motorhomes are great for full-timers, or weekend warriors. They allow you to bring along a smaller commuter vehicle, while also being easier on the fuel wallet with their gas-powered engines. On to the chosen five!
Thor Vegas 25.6
Thor likes to call the Vegas one of their ‘RUV’ models, as in Recreational Utility Vehicle. At 26 feet 6 inches in length, the Vegas is certainly the shortest in this five, but this length allows it to have the drivability of a Class C. The wall slide of the 25.6 contains a large 76-inch dream dinette able to sleep two, a 40-inch TV on a swivel, a wardrobe closet. The queen bed flips up when you bring in the slide.
The bedroom also has additional closet space and its own 32-inch TV. It really feels like a separate space. Designed for efficiency, the 25.6 floorplan has a streamlined kitchen entirely on the passenger sidewall. Turn around and set dinner on the table at the dinette. In the front cabin is another sleeping space, a drop-down overhead twin bunk sitting above the cab’s swiveling captain’s seats. This bunk space is perfect for kids, or small adults. When not in use, it serves as useful storage. The Vegas 25.6 also has a nifty exterior 32-inch TV for your outdoor viewing pleasure. This is ideal for tailgating.

Entegra Coach Vision 29F
Entegra Coach builds some of the finest motorhomes out there and the Vision 29F certainly fits the bill. You’ll find the wall slide is packed with all sorts of camp conveniences: a comfy booth dinette; kitchen counter with corner counter space and double-bowl sink; a three-burner stove, microwave, and oven. in the rear, the slide expands the master bedroom and offers a dresser and full wardrobe closet. Believe it or not, they’ve also squeezed in extra sleeping space for the kids with a pair of stacked twin bunks.
All sleeping spaces combined, the Vision 29F can sleep up to eight tired campers. Imagine hosting a kids birthday party in the RV, or meeting up with family members for a mini-reunion on the road. In the Vision, you can make a camp meetup happen.
The bathroom is a walkthrough design with 2 entrances, a private access from the bedroom and an easy entry from the hall. In the bright and roomy bathroom, you’ll enjoy a glass door-enclosed angled shower with a skylight. Tailgaters rejoice at a sweet entertainment center on the exterior with an LED TV on a swivel bracket plus a DVD/AM-FM radio and speakers. Set the kids up outside with a movie and some popcorn.

The Intent is new to the Winnebago lineup. A spacious 31 feet in length, the Winnebago Intent 31P has, you guessed it, stacked twin bunks embedded in its wall slide.

With the bunks plus the walkaround queen bed, convertible dinette, jackknife sofa, and StudioLoft bed, you’ll be able to sleep up to eight.

Thor A.C.E. 32.3
What’s with all the periods – A.C.E. I know. Most RVers just say ‘Ace’ even if the acronym actually stands for “A and C Evolution.” Effectively, this means an A.C.E. is a motorhome with Class A features but has the maneuverability of a Class C motorhome. You can think of this rig as a hybrid of the two classes, which means it has many useful features. The A.C.E. 32.3 can sleep up to eight happy campers because it has 1) a queen size drop-down overhead bunk, and 2) yes, a pair of stacked twin bunks embedded in the wall slide.
Also sitting in the wall slide is a 68-inch convertible dream dinette containing a 40-inch TV. The TV sits smartly across from the sofa, so you can enjoy entertainment without a crick in your neck. The cooktop/oven, deep kitchen counter and sink make up the kitchen area and dining area. In the rear, the slide expands to make space in the bedroom for a wardrobe closet as well as the bedroom’s dresser, and a 32-inch TV. The primary bedroom, by the way, has a walkaround king-size bed. This makes the space feel spacious and residential.
The fridge sits on the passenger side of the 32.3 sharing a wall with the bathroom and its full-size angled shower. The 32.3 also has a pair of 15.5-inch LED TVs in the bunks with a DVD player, which keeps the kids entertained on rainy days, or when you just need a little quiet time in the evening. An additional TV on the exterior, 32-inches, is located under the awning for movies under the stars.

Holiday Rambler Admiral 34J
At 36 feet, the Holiday Rambler Admiral 34J runs a full Laker Center Anthony Davis and a foot more in length beyond the Thor Vegas 25.6. And guess what? It can sleep up to eight. Because, well you know, just like the other larger motorhomes in this article it has a hide-a-loft dropdown queen bed… as well as stacked twin bunks embedded into the wall slide. These bunks are slightly different as they have a nifty enclosure – a sliding barn door. This detail gives this coach a modern design appeal, and a highly functional privacy function.
The Admiral 34J’s wall slide has everything the A.C.E. 32.3 does, only with just a tad more room – bigger wardrobe closet, more kitchen counter space, and a slightly larger booth dinette. You might think these small adjustments don’t amount to much, but you can feel the extra space. The passenger side adds a pantry and has a residential fridge. TVs are all over the place – a 32-inch flat-screen in the bedroom, another in the bunk area, a 39-inch flat-screen in the living area, plus on the exterior, you’ll find a 50-inch LED TV. Everyone has space to enjoy their own kind of entertainment. RVing with family is all about creating different zones for fun and you can do just that in the 34J.
