'96 Thor Grand Manor Owners Manual

Hello Everyone....
My husband and I just purchased a used 1996 Thor Grand Manor 3470 and we are in need of an Owners Manual. I have contacted Thor, and was told that this model was "Made Out West"?? somewhere and that they closed that business, therefore they have no owners manuals for this model. They were not helpful at all.
Our RV has only 32,000 miles on it, and we are ready to hit the road, but we are running into problems and an Owners Manual would help to answer our questions about this RV. My husband is a retired Semi-Truck Driver, having owned his own trucks at one time, and therefore he knows a certain amount about this, but not everything we need to know as far as an RV.
We purchased this from a woman that told us it was her parents, who are now in a nursing home, and she could not find the Owners Manual.
Would anyone have any idea about how I can go about purchasing an Owners Manual for this '96 Thor Grand Manor RV.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to read this.
Thank-You,
Colleen & Bill Beveridge

Maybe the moderators can move this to the Thor forum under owners corner? Or you could start in that part of the forum and do a search there.

TMC was right...the Grand Manor was produced by Thor Industries West (1991-1999).

Thor West is featured on NADA, but due to time passed, I doubt there is much else on-line:
1996 Thor Industries West Motorhome Prices, Values & Specs - NADAguides

The current entity known as Thor Motor Coach is relatively new, created in 2010 with the merger of Thor RV's motorized holdings which included Four Winds, Damon, and Mandalay Luxury Coach.

Best luck

I can't speak to the success rate on this website, however you might be successful locating your owners manual here: RVManuals exchange.
