However, I would not put it past Thor when they built it that something just went horribly wrong with the assembly somewhere that could be the cause. I would not be a bit surprised if the entire chassis is out of square. While the alignment was being done, was the chassis ever put on a jig to check for true? A large freight liner truck shop or big truck collision and body shop should be able to check the chassis.
I took it to Josam in Orlando. They had no idea why it pulls.

Our 2013 33,2 number 7 off the line, drives straight. Slide works. I believe it is the blogs that have run the resale prices down. 100's of coaches out there with no problems.

We love our coach.

I think it may be the manufacturer pulling the prices down. If I were the manufacturer I would make sure these warranty problems got fixed correctly so owners wouldn't need to blog about the bad service or product. We're in the 21st century. Manufacturers can't kiss these things off anymore because the sounding board reaches around the world. Unfortunately it also causes you a possible financial loss even though you got one with no probems.

We have always received great service from the Thor. It makes me wonder how folks treat Thor when they are servicing their coach. This is our second Thor coach and we are happy. We have not bad luck with dealers servicing our equipment. Dealers get $ 700 to do another pdi and they must pocket it. Dealers have more damage to our equipment than they have fixed. We have the chassis serviced at the local Freightliner dealer and have the coach serviced by Thor.

We love our coach

I agree, dealers dont care about damages they do to a MH, its money in their pocket if they damage a unit. Thats why Im going to Elkhart... I dont trust ANY dealers out there.
