Anyone care to comment on that?
What gas coaches are having few problems, or are known for high quality and high satisfaction. We are new to this, so I really don't know. We did look at some Thor Aces the other day...they seemed quite bit lower in materials quality and fit and finish to me.
Thor would NOT be one of the ones known for quality and lack or problems from the factory. Unfortunately, the entire industry seems pretty riddled with issues but I don't seem to hear too many complaints with Winnebago.
Once again, I would advise to stay away from Thor. Every now and then you will find someone championing them. One of their most vocal advocates on forum has started to change his tune since they are messing with a friend of his over a defective slide room floor.
This website has separate forums for the manufacturers. If you have some time one day, pop into them and get a feel for what the owners think. Read between the lines when necessary. It's obviously not a great scientific poll but you can get a fell for things.
