Each week Camping World sits down with real RVers, like Keith Sims of Soulful RV Family, to talk about their favorite new RV’s on the lot. Keith recently joined the Camping World team to reveal his personal RV pick—2021 Thor Motor Coach Four Winds 27R.
Tag along on this virtual walk-through. Or, read on to find out what makes this motorhome an amazing tailgating rig, and family coach for the Sims’ active travels.
Terrific for Tailgating
You don’t need a former pro-athlete like Keith Sims to know this coach is made for tailgating. An outdoor TV sets the stage for the perfect patio experience watching the game. An electric awning provides shade on the entire passengers’ side of the motorhome.
Keith Sims said it best—“When you’re tailgating, it isn’t so much inside the RV…it’s the outside.” Extra exterior storage provides space for all the outdoor games that make a tailgating event fun.
An Onan generator comes standard and sets the Thor Motor Coach Four Winds up for a weekend of dry docking at a stadium or arena. Sims points out that tailgating isn’t just for football; he uses their rig to travel to his son’s karate tournaments. The Thor coach’s nimble profile can easily fit in at a ball field, soccer game, or athletic competition.
The Thor Motor Coach Four Winds is a choice rig for a large family, due in part to its capacity to sleep six. But Sims chose this RV primarily for its luxurious King-size bed—a non-negotiable feature for this 6’3” athlete. The primary suite in the rear of the coach is a cozy space with the large bed, charging stations, and a large, mirrored wardrobe. A vent fan over the bed provides great circulation and temperature control. Enjoy watching the game from the comfort of bed with a cool breeze blowing in the windows of the slideout.
A big shower and tall 84-inch ceilings make this rig comfortable for Sims. He notes the bright cabinetry and big windows as features that make the interior feel even bigger.
Solid surface countertops give the kitchen a residential feel. Prepping food in the kitchen is made easier with a snap-up extended prep space. Beneath the sink is the perfect spot for an out-of-sight garbage can, a feature many RV’s overlook.
Sims notes the decorative backsplash as a feature that brings the whole kitchen together and gives the RV a more lived-in feel. “The days of people using the RV’s just for a day or two…are kind of over,” said Sims. RVing is becoming more popular and a preferred mode of travel for many, which makes comfortable interior touches all the more important. Sims notes, “people are using their RV’s more and more,” and RV manufacturers are taking note with attention to interior detail and design.
A large panorama window behind the jackknife sofa lets in light and provides pleasant crosswinds when the weather is right. Behind the sofa is a useful ledge providing cupholders and a power tower for charging devices.
Keith and his wife Tia have been looking for a more nimble family rig to supplement their Class A travels. The Thor Motor Coach Four Winds proves a worthy coach to meet the needs of the Soulful RV Family as they travel and homeschool from the road.
No matter whether you’re a roaming family or RVing solo, Keith says “There’s no right or wrong way. Just do it your way and have a good time.”
