Thor Compass User's Experience

I am new to RV and thinking about buying a class c rv.

I like the flexibility of class b, but after seeing Winnebago Revel. I realized class b is not for me. It is too small. However, most of class c are 25' and longer. I love the space, but it may not be be easy to move around. So, finally, I set my target on Thor Compass.

Thor Compass has a slide. It is big enough for me and my wife. It is 23' so it shouldn't be too difficult to move around and to park almost anywhere. Compass has great floorpan. It is built on a all wheel drive Ford chassis. This is what I like. I like Ford 4x4 chassis and don't care about Benz chassis since I am sure I will think about selling the RV if it is over 60,000 miles. Why should I pay extra for Benz chassis? I have owned Ford Expedition, two Ford explores. They all gave me very positive experience.

My concerns about the Compass is its quality, especially user's experience. It doesn't have lithium battery. Its black tank is only 18 gallon. I am not sure if it is big enough even Winnebago Revel has 20 gallon black tank. For Revel, you may dump the black waste at any public restroom but for Compass, the waste has to be dumped at dumping station. I am not sure how easy to find a dumping station.

My another option is Leisure Van Wonder. However, Wonder is a 25' RV.

Check out Phoenix Cruiser. They have a 2100 that is only 22', and several others including some on Transit frame. We had one, then upgraded to a 2351D. Great company to work with. We love ours
Went from camping to Rv'n in Jack (our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser). And loving it!

Biased opinion, but anything made by LTV (Wonder) will be head and shoulders above the rest of the market in terms of coach features and quality. They're also quite a bit higher in price and you're looking at a 2 year wait for a new one unless you get lucky and find what you want via a cancelled order. We looked hard at the Compass and a few others that we could have driven away but chose to wait. Put in a factory order and got lucky with a dealer floor plan allotment.
If I remember, the Compass is on a slightly shorter wheelbase that will make it more maneuverable. The Ford AWD setup is not a sharp tuning beast.
LTV Wonder24RTB AWD. Sometimes the manufacturer does get it right!!

23’ vs 25’?

The difference is absolutely negligible for camping. After driving school buses and a 35’ Class A and towing…….a 25’ Class C is a sports car. However the room inside at 25’ is amazing and there’s a lot of selection.
