Welcome to iRV2!

We took a good look at the Thor Super C's two years ago .... liked the Ford part, but became nervous about the Thor part, so we went in a different direction.

Share your experiences here on the forum, it might help many others.

Our Experience w/ Thor Super C 35SK

My wife and I purchased a new 2014 Thor Super C 35SK Chateau in June 2014 after considerable research of available RV options while upgrading from an older travel trailer. The goal was to upgrade to a smaller class A diesel-equivalent without spending the amount of money that smaller diesel class A's usually cost.

We purchased the 2014 Thor Super C 35SK Chateau because it offered all the features of a smaller class A diesel for less money - we loved the price (105k), the size (36'), floor plan, features (e.g., hydraulic leveling system, powerful diesel Ford F-550 platform, 10k towing capacity) among other aspects.

That said, we made the purchase with our "eyes wide open" knowing that Thor's reputation for designing/manufacturing quality product was poor. Because of this, we made sure we drove the unit cost low while making the purchase. So, you could say, we were very strategic in how we handled this purchase given we were dealing with Thor.

The RV has been plagued with both workmanship as well as some basic design issues (way too many to list here); fortunately, we were able to have our basic warranty extended allowing us to shake out and fix all of these issues at both a local RV repair shop as well as the Thor factory service center in Indiana (this turned out to work out well since it removed the middle RV repair shop and Thor did superb work in their repairs) (over the course of almost 2 years). We are now at the end of almost 2 years of ownership and believe (hope) everything has been fixed now that we are off warranty.

So, in the end, we absolutely love our new Thor Super C but not without headaches and some additional expense along the way.

I hope this helps,

Best

We purchased a 2014 33sw with 1800 mi. The original owner used it one weekend and traded it. We bought it Dec 5th 2015.
We have had several problems, no heat to holding tanks and bath room caused by a crushed duct and repaired under warranty.
No DC power to refrigerator caused by faulty wiring also fixed under warranty. Batteries and inverter replaced under warranty. Window shades falling off while driving and other small problems.
The front levelers are too low for our boondocking lifestyle but we have elected to live with that as schwintech and thor said it was not an issue.
The water pump is far too loud and I will move it or replace it with something quieter. It has been in the shop for about 2 Mos. We have found so many manufacturer issues that we are constantly on guard for what will be our next problem.
All that said we like the unit. Great power and fuel mileage. Our warranty expires in Sept 2016 so we will use it as much as possible until then.
