Thanks to Thor

Just got back from a 6 week, 7000 mile adventure in my 2006 30 ft Thor Hurricane.From Boston to the coast road of Washington,down to southern Ca, and back across thru the desert on some lousy potholed highways.Some of the mountain roads and the coast roads with their hair pinned turns,thousands of feet down with no guard rails made the trip a memorable one.I just want to express my thanx to Thor for making a great traveling vehicle that can really handle the most difficult routes in the country.I felt total confidence in this machine.Its wide with no slides that make it feel spacious. Easy to park anywhere without raising eyebrows .I stayed in 3 campgrounds for a total of 4 days.Im sure theres nice inexpensive campgrounds, but the ones I saw packed them in.
Before leaving I replaced the steering stabilizer and had an alignment.I was amazed at the quiet smooth ride with all its power.Granted there are obvious signs that the rv is an 'entry' level class A,but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for it in its practicality.Even the mileage was decent between 8 and 9 mpg.

Glad you had a great time and a trouble free trip. I like ours as well and wish they still made the 30Q. But I guess the market for slide-less MH's is quite small and not cost effective to build and market.
