Yes, i wish we were in that price range but not going to happen any time soon. Tents maybe but not the bus . Most of the kids are still young though we do have some older's and younger ones can share. If we can find a toy hauler could do some sort of DIY triple bunks perhaps.

Really like the newmar's I have seen, most are up there but I have seen a few in our range. However, not having the retractable bunk above the driver like the ACE gives us 2 less beds in similar floor plans. Is there such a thing as an after market addition of a retractable bunk above driver? or mods people have made to newmars for large families?

Letter to Thor


Spend some time on this Thor thread I attached from this blog. Search the Thor ACE thread for the Generator issue that was on-going for several years


When comparing coaches ask about the front drop down bed weight limits. Pull out all the beds, lay on them and measure them for teenagers and such. I did this when looking at the ACE models before I purchased. I found the Thor was built for little people, ever see the Wizard of OZ, yes little people. Make sure to compare all the coaches in your price range before purchasing. DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT THE SALESMAN TELLS YOU. Do your our research and listen to your gut, if it looks cheap it is. If it feels cheap it is. There are many new coaches in the Crossover line-up.


The ACE line-up has had many, many quality issues. It took Thor two years to solve the overheating (shutting-off) generator issue in the ACE from 2012 to 2014. Take your time and don't rush into anything.

Funny doesn't the fleetwood storm have the same generator overheat issue? I believe the storm still has the generator up front near main engine like ace used too. Fleetwood was providing a venting system to put in the acces door, thor tried that and eventually just moved the generator back. Here is the link in this forum Fleetwood Storm & Generator shutdown
