Super C : Thor vs Seneca

Looking to buy a Super C. Like the Thor 35 SK and Seneca MS/RB. Looks like I can get a lot newer Thor for the same money as older Seneca. I do like the Chevy Duramax. Coming from a 5th wheel so Class C is new to me.
Thank for your feedback.

We went thru the same analysis and decided on the Seneca, for the following reasons:
1. The number of negative comments on the Thor vs the Seneca.
2. Senecas have been around for several years.
3. The FL/ Cummins chassis is one of the most popular business class commercial trucks.
4. The FL dealer network vs reports that some Ford dealers don't work on commercial trucks.
5. 2 year warranty vs 1 year.

Just our result, we did like the Thor floor plans.

I don't know enough about the Seneca, but I haven't heard any bad raps about them. I did walk through one on my dealers lot and saw a lot of fit and finish issues. It was a year + old so maybe that had something to do with it. My 35SK has had it's share of minor issues but nothing major. Has power to spare and averaged 9.6 mpg pulling my F-150 1,000 miles from NW Missouri to Hot Springs, Ar. and back. Comfortable ride with very little engine noise. There is no inside rattles or creeks going down the road. I'm very pleased with it so far. Hope this helps a little. Oops, if you plan to boondock quite a bit, you'll want to look at switching to 6 volt battery's with some solar help.

Yep, the residential refrig will be a real drag on the stock batteries when boon docking any length of time. Wish they would offer the 1200 Norcold

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. If money wasn't an issue I would go with a new Seneca for sure. I need to decide on an older Seneca or newer Thor.
Now if I could only hit the Lottery!

Have had numerous problems with our '14 Thor 33SW but most have been sorted after long stays at the factory. Going back to Elkhart next week to deal with more relatively minor issues before the warranty expires.

That said, there is a lot we like about this coach. Great ride. Lots of power. 10 mpg pulling a new Cherokee. Good storage.

Wish we'd bought the 35 since it has 2 slides vs 1 on the 33. Was concerned about the longer overhang on the 35. Have some worries about the heavy fridge being in the one big slide on the 33 but no problems yet.
