Welcome from a fellow Missourian.
We almost bought one a couple of weeks ago.
I'll say this up front, I have no doubts about the F-550 as a platform. I owned an F-350 for years and that truck was top notch.
So why didn't we buy it?
Three reasons: First, is that we didn't feel like we could take a step down from the quality of our Winnebago to the Four Winds. Let me expand upon that...
We have had a Winnebago Aspect for years and have been looking for something a little larger but with a good kitchen for several seasons now. We went and looked at a 35SK and while I really liked the floorplan of the 35SK very much, we just couldn't accept the quality difference between Four Winds and Winnebago. We ended up buying another Winnebago product, an Itasca Cambria 27K, which has a floor plan that is similar to the 35SK, without the F-550 diesel and the king bed.
The second is the generally bad impression I got about Thor from reading about other Thor owners on these forums, and a few others. This was the biggest reason for not purchasing the 35SK.
Third, no history. I couldn't find any comments about the Super C product line from others, save for two people.
Anyway, the unit was impressive and in a few years it will be interesting to see what the early adopters of this model line have to say. I hope it is good things, and I hope the general feeling about Thor quality control that I get from reading the threads on these forums is better.
Anyway, those are my two cents.
