Thor Motor Coach makes some of the best new and used motorhomes out there. While many people prefer the company’s Class A motorhomes or the company’s Class B, Super C, or RUVmotorhomes, the standard Class C motorhomes are some of the best models out there for couples and families.
With all this in mind, I wanted to dig into the Class C motorhome offerings from Thor so that you can make a decision about whether or not they’re right for you and your family. Here are the five models on sale and their highlights.
First up, we have the Chateau. This Class C motorhome is built on either the Ford E-350 chassis, comparable Chevrolet chassis or the Ford E-450 chassis. This means you get a 6.8-liter Triton V10 engine if you get the Ford chassis or the Vortec 6.0-liter V8 if you get the Chevy chassis. Either one is a fantastic base for the rest of the RV.
There are 12 different floorplans out there for the Chateau. These floorplans range in length from 24 feet long to over 31 feet. There are also many different choices when it comes to the number of slides and the overall layout. If it’s just you and a significant other, then there are plenty of options, but if you need some bunks or additional sleeping space, some of the longer floorplans like the 30D, 31E, offer additional bunks for sleeping larger numbers of people. The most any Chateau can sleep is seven.
The Chateau is characterized by upscale interior materials with one of three interior color schemes. There’s Imperial, Ocean Pearl, or Saddleback. The cabinetry comes in either Brazilian Cherry or Malibu Maple. The exterior visual graphics offer five different options, from a standard graphics package to your choice of Brilliant Blue, Tranquil Beige, Bonita Bay, or Daytona Beach. Exterior color options will depend on the floorplan you choose.
Next, we have the Four Winds, one of my personal favorites in terms of layouts and offerings. The Four Winds models are built on the Ford E-350 chassis or comparable Chevy chassis or the Ford E-450 chassis. You’ll see the same engines listed. It’s either the 6.8-liter Triton V10 or the Vortec 6.0-liter V8.
Like with the Chateau, there are 12 different Four Winds floorplans. Again, the floorplans range from 24 feet event to a little over 31 feet in length. These floorplan layouts don’t differ much at all from the Chateau, but names are different. Again, longer options will have more sleeping space, and the max sleeping capacity is seven people.
When it comes to color options, the Four Winds has some attractive choices. Inside, you can get the interior in three choices: Gemstone, Nautical Blue, or Summit Grey. The cabinets come in either Brazilian Cherry or Malibu Maple Flat Panel. When it comes to the exterior of the RV, you have the option of one of the following: Standard Graphics, Cosmopolitan, Vanilla Swirl, Castle Rock, or Whistling Straits.
The Quantum is the last of the standard Class C options from Thor. Again, the Quantum is built on Ford E-350 or a comparable Chevrolet chassis. The larger floorplans are built on Ford E-450 chassis. This means you get either the 6.8-liter V10 engine or the Vortex 6.0-liter V8.
Floorplan options are a little different for this one. There’s really only eight of them available. Still, there’s plenty of variety to choose from. The floorplans vary in length from 24 feet to over 32 feet. The options you have also offer different sleeping capacities from four to seven people.
The color options for this RV are different, too. The interior can be had in Artic Frost II, Cloud Nine II, or Midtown Taupe II. The cabinets come in Artisan Cherry or Prestige Maple. When you get to the exterior of the RV, you’re looking at six options: Hot Streak, Let It Ride, Double Down Partial, Jokers Wild, Black Onyx, and Topaz blue. Black Onyx is my favorite, and it’s important to note some colors are only available with certain floorplans.
