New and first time motorhome owner - Thor M-270

Got us a new to us 1994 Thor M-270 last week and diving right in to see how all this goes. This is our first venture into motorhomes as we've been a camp trailer family for years.

I'm sure I'll be Googling and searching the forums for all i can so bear with me

Welcome!

Welcome! That's a big change for you, and I hope it's a good one. We really like our 21' travel trailer... I've had a class C 29', and tent trailers, but never desired a class A... I'm curious why you decided to change up to a motorhome from a trailer... cheers!

We have a 2010 Jay Feather x17z with the two tent tip out beds that we tow with a conversion van. Wife and i were talking and were thinking that some trips would be more fun if we didn't have to deal with a trailer and just had the one rig to drive and explore with. That was one reason for trying an older used coach to see if we liked it or not. We started looking at Class C in the 24-26ish range and came across a couple Class A's in the 26-27' range and like the layout a bit better. Time will tell how we like it. It's going to need some work - exhaust fix is the first thing and then will dive into looking over the suspension to see what needs to be replaced. The tires looked in real great shape (Toyo) and finally found the date code that says 2011 but these things look just about new - no cracks on the sidewalls of any kind. First drive in it after a 15 minute test drive was just over 3 hours to get home at 10pm at night - that was a bit interesting as I've not driven a big vehicle since getting out of the Army back in 97 - ex wrecker operator and mechanic.

I did find the P-30 Chassis Manual so that's a step in the right direction.
