Thor Featured on TV Business Segment(s)

An entertaining YouTube if nothing else. Confirming Thor continues to be North America's #1 RV maker.




The reporters seem to have had no idea what comes in modern Class A.

Safe travels

Some people won't belive it because it was on FOX. But it was a pretty good article. A friend of mine said the same thing about mine being bigger than his apartment he had in New York.

The SO FUNNY part to me is that Thor gets an 8 minute video posted for free. If that is what happened.

If Thor paid for that add I apologize in advance.

Lippert? But maybe he just drives another rig off the lot while the broken one is repaired.

I saw that report and it looked good but scarab0088 is right. The reporter has probably not even seen the inside of a travel trailer let alone a Class A coach. I had some problems with my Thor Tuscany but we seemed to get all the bugs worked out finally. We will see in a few days when I pull it out of the barn after hibernating all winter. Hope everything still works ha.

It's a YouTube video. No body paid anyone for that.

And it was produced by a TV Business News channel, so that's their day-to-day business.

Feel free to post any Forest River RV YouTube video's...they might be fun to share.

Safe travels

Don't Winnebago and Fleetwood make the same claim?

Aren't they ALL the #1 North American RV Manufacturer?

The 2014 stats in the US were (per SSI):

(On edit)
http://www.rvbusiness.com/2015/02/de...up-16-4-in-14/
Most Class A sold = Thor Motor Coach
Most Class B sold = Roadtrek
Most Class C sold = Forest River

Safe travels

But YOU put it on IRV2. Are you paid to advertise for Thor? I was told I couldn't post about someone selling mudflaps. What is the difference?
