I believe that it is too new for new owner here, yet...but that could change at any moment.

Did you see this?
Tuscany XTE Model To Be Discontinued

Beautiful RV's - and SO much for your purchase dollar...but then so are TMC's top of the gas line, Challengers.

Safe travels

The Aria replaces the Tuscany XTE but isn't an exact replacement. It's at a lesser price point than the XTE but is less optioned in attempt to distance the Aria from what it replaces.

Would you agree?...The order of production for TMC DP's will be:
-Tuscany, MSRP starts at $361,900 (2 and 3 axle, 450HP RV's with ZF independent front suspension!)
-Venetian, $300,900 (380HP or 400HP engines)
-Aria, $265,930 (360HP engines!)
-Palazzo, $215,130 (At-sale prices equal or lower than many gas Class A's!!)

The discontinued Tuscany XTE started at $275,520 (above Aria, but below Venetian). This confused everything .
The XTE offered a bunkhouse floor plan which is not offered in the Aria or above, but probably not a hot seller for the typical "6 for drinks, 4 for dinner, 2 for overnight" buyer of premium DP's.

Safe travels

I don't really know why Thor needed that "in between" model line, the XTE or now the Aria. Seems to me they have the majority of price points well covered with the other 3 models so why shoehorn another in the mix?

Me thinks it went like this....

2013: TMC says "Serrano is dead (FRED Chassis out of production) and Astoria needs freshening...we need something less expensive to fit between the top-line Gas Challenger and Tuscany"...viola' Palazzo and Tuscany XTE.

2014: TMC says "Wow despite that Schwintek fiasco, we're selling TONS of these things...let's add to the DP line"...viola' Venetian for 2015.

2015: TMC says "WOW the DP market is hot...need more"...viola' Aria for 2016.

2016: TMC says "Dealers are complaining...Venetian and Aria models are stepping all over the line connecting Tuscany and Tuscany XTE - "...viola', build on the Venetian and Aria floor plans while quietly discontining the XTE during the 2017 Model Year.

Or maybe I don't know what I am talking about
