What type chassis

Hey guys I have recently acquired a 2001 Thor Four Winds 5000 class c with the 8.1 Vortec engine. I was just wondering what the chassis is called as I see where everyone is referring to theirs as a W-20 or 32 and so on. Also I need to know so I can find some replacement mirrors for the doors. Thanks Mike

Class C motorhomes use what is called a cutaway chassis made by Chevy, GMC or Ford usually. Same as used on small buses, cargo vans and other commercial applications. Try Googling Class C mirrors and you will get some info. The W-20 and other with similar W- designation were manufactured by Workhorse.

Most likely GM/Chevy provided the mirrors with the cab/chassis. I would take the VIN number of the chassis (the one on the driver side of the windshield) and go to a GM/Chevy dealer and let them look it up.

There are are all kinds and types of mirrors

Chances are they are aftermarket (Velvac as one example) and not OEM.
As for your chassis you probably have a G 3500 or possibly G 4500 if they made one that year.
