Fit & Finish, Thor or Fleetwood?

Narrowed our search to two units. The Hurricane 32A, or Storm 32V. Both floor plans work for us. Basically the same platform, what are the thoughts on fit and finish, longevity and resale. Both coaches have been around for a while, so I would guess there are plenty of owners out there.

Thank you, all input is appreciated.

I'd place Fleetwood a notch above Thor.

In those 2 models, about the same. As for resale? Not very good with any new coach.

Definitely an apples to apples comparison, which is a good thing!

If it helps, make a side-by-side list of all the standards and options (I think the Hurricanes may only be 30amp with 50 amp as an "option", so definitely check that out, should that matter to you. I'd want that 50 amp upgrade and second air conditioner in the back for sure.).

You can't go wrong with either one since they're so similar - trust your gut feeling and pull the trigger!

Thank you for the input. Your comments have helped and confirmed what I have seen. We put a deposit on a Fleetwood today, and are excited to start taking trips.

They will look after you. We have had two Fleetwoods and my dad had 5. We have friends that have a Thor and have not been happy. I do think their expectations were too high though! My advice is my more than you need, you will end up their anyways.
