Thor AXIS 24.1

Bought the new AXIS, and having some issues. First, the driver seat is not directly in front of the steering wheel... center of seat 2-3" to right of center of wheel. This does not seem like a good thing to me. Second, the driver's seat is not facing forward, but faces slightly to the center of the windshield... off by about 10 degrees, just enough to make it uncomfortable to drive. Also with the driver's seat, EXTREMELY difficult to rotate without putting great pressure on the steering wheel. When rotated, still puts pressure on the steering wheel. I have taken the coach in for 'warranty work'; they remounted the driver's seat to face forward, they "checked" it, but it's still not square. Anyone else with this problem?

Poor craftsmanship. Force the dealer to fix it or get you a new coach if they can't fix it. The driver's seat is also a PITA to turn around in ours. Every coach has a secret. IIRC, seat all the way forward, back all the way forward, left armrest down, tilt steering up...and it rotates.

axis 24.1

Hope that can be fixed. We are seriously considering the Axis. Wonder about the ground clearance, especially that moulding below the door and will the overhead bunk come down part way so it could be used for storage? We don't have one in our area to look at yet. Thanks.

Bunk does come down

You can lower the bunk for storage. Probably not recommended while driving but I did and no problems. Yes the clearance can be an issue especially by the door. Just watch the curbs and make sure nothing is by the door when moving

Probably a dealer who doesn't sell them.
