The finger pointing at Thor and other RV companies that don't give a dam. They use the cheapest materials and labor.

There is now pride in quality, only get the coaches out at the cheapest possible price. They look great but are junk.

After reading reviews, I will never buy an rv in the usa.

Who said American products are coming back?

Thor Industries - 2007 Thor Windsport Review from Smithfield, Virginia

We have had nothing but problems with our windsport, most of them electrical issues. We are on our third Transformer as they keep burning out. We continue to have dead battery issues. The fuse panel under the hood had issues and part of it melted. The leather furniture turned out to be some kind of cloth with liquid leather sprayed on it and flaked and peeled and looks horrible. This company has no quality control and when we saw a special a news report about Thor we realized why. Their technicians are paid by the completed job, not by the hour. In the news report they were running from vehicle to vehicle which explains why the dresser drawer supports only had one screw in each side and we were given a big bag of extra screws when we bought the coach. We feel like we got screwed. We bought a new coach thinking we wouldn't have a lot of issues like you can get sometimes with a used unit. If I had my time to go over I would have purchased someone else's used unit and definitely not a Thor product.

I purchased a Thor Hurracaine 2016 in August 2015. So much is wrong with it .The furnace still does not work right. The bedroom closets are leaking, but would be my problem because over 90 days purchased. Thor told me to read the fine print ! So Camping world would not seal leak because did not know if under warranty or not. I told them fix either way. Leaking and brand new. Was in shop for 2 days. Put back out in rain for me to take back home. Camping World then takes me out to floor to purchase a tube of sikasil for 7.74. Told me I had to get on roof and cover seal. Well first of all my ladder on back of camper is not connected to camper. need new ladder. 2 is it's pouring down rain--was told to tarp it let it dry and seal. I refused to take home. They did seal the next day with a cost of 139.00 !!! Ready But still leaking. Here is list-- closet rod to short, I had to fix. under door bed broke.-- fixed-- passenger and driver chairs arms broke off. fixed --needed new regular because when gas stove and furnace on furnace stops working, fixed--bathtub leaking outside every time used, fixed--bedroom door fell of. half fixed--leaking on furnace circuit board now on 3rd circuit board.--awning had hole. --new awning.--air conditioner in cab does not work. Unable to find ford dealer that will fix. Ladder falling off. needs fixed. Lock on cup board in bedroom needs fixed. kitchen vent leaking. fixed-- Thor doesn't wish to give camping world permission to fix. So I have to haul back and forth and pay hotel bills. This needs to be taken care of!!!

Cannot believe the lousy quality Thor puts out there. Was hoping to find something positive, but yet to find it.

Really liked the Venetian, but no way will I buy a Thor based on horror stories I keep reading.junk.

UNHAPPY ONE TIME CUSTOMER

8 months ago we purchased a Thor Windsport We are constantly having to override to close slides , fuses blow, and the seat cushions!!! How can you sit on cushions that won't stay put. First time we used the couch air mattress it would not hold air!! The RV rattles like its going to fall apart down the road.Our dealer says Thor can do nothing about that??? moulding strips pop off, all paper is peeling, very poorly made, and the smell, not a new smell something different. We thought that would dissipate. NOT! Is there a problem with insulation and or wood used?my last RV we traded was 2 yrs and still smelled new! so very disappointed.Should have stuck to our 5th wheels, so much better quality and more amenities for the $$$$$ VERY UNHAPPY!!!! NEED HELP

NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THOR CORPORATION--NEVER

Thor is the worst company I have ever encountered. I bought an ACE 27.1 in Feb. 2014. Over the nearly TWO years I have owned it, the RV has been at the dealer having one after another problem fixed for a total of ONE YEAR OUT OF COMMISSION. Some of the problems include: leveling jacks, radio, sliding door, shelves in the closets, awning malfunction, counter material popping up and off, ceiling material bubbling, leaking windshield, decals on outside bubbling, leaking storage bins. And it goes on. The assembly and quality control from Thor are TERRIBLE. I'm still fighting for my right to a decent product but will probably sell at a loss soon. Consulted an attorney--it would take up to two years to file suit, etc. and I'd have to keep the RV throughout. It's time for it to go. NEVER, EVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THOR CORPORATION. NEVER. TELL YOUR FRIENDS, TOO.

We bought a new 2016 Windsport 29M at the Hershey Show this fall. The same day we picked it up from Camping World we had issues with the automatic leveling system.

From there it went down hill quickly. The bed frame was literally falling apart, The sliderails to the drawers fell apart, The wood holding the drawer latches were all splitting out. Cabinet door was warped. The coach AC didn't work.

It was missing 2-1/2 pounds of freon. Chrome plating on the sideview mirror is peeling off. More then 30 items found. Unit was dropped off around the 18th of Oct.

Unit still not completed. I insisted to bring it home two weeks ago since I didn't want to worry about it in the snow. I feel for you.

Maybe a class action law suit should be our next move.

Thor Industries - 2015 Thor Motor Coach Vegas Review from Mountain View, California

Purchased 2015 Thor Vegas. In delivery day front tire was visibly low on air as were two back tires. Windshield filthy. Took 3.5 hours for camping world to clean windshields and put air in tires so we could drive away. The first issue we had was with a/c unit. It would only blast away at high, could not select auto or low. The cameras on both sides alternately stopped working. Delamination issues in bathroom. Leak on drivers side, gasket around windshield came off as we're driving down the road, main engine battery dead and needed to be replaced, hanging wires, door lock assembly failed and we were locked inside the coach. Tire stem issue, needed replacement on double back tires, outside shower compartment lock malfunction/replacement, 12 volt outlets inoperable on passenger side, bathroom shower head needed full replacement, caulking missing at bottom of shower pan. Most of these issues occurred within 12 months/2000 mi. Camping World and Thor were totally useless. We were left on our own to seek repair. We got reimbirsed for $400 from Thor, after spending thousands. Buyet beware when dealing with Thor or camping world.

Thor Industries - Ace Motor Coach Review from Colleyville, Texas

We have an ace27.5. Have had numerous little problems that drive one crazy. Initially before we took it off the lot they had to have the generator repaired/new 2015. The slide pantry wouldn't stay closed while driving and the pantry door across had to be replaced 2xs. We now bungee it because it still doesn't stay closed. Drawer in step didn't stay closed and had to be replaced be caused I stepped into it. Last time we took it in to have a door replaced, the service tech that that was the last day of warranty. We now are on an extended trip. The motor on the step has gone out and we had to bungee it closed. Open the window and couldn't close it because the window went off the track. Had to take screen off and can't get it back on. The slider topper hinge cracked and the cover twisted and the whole thing had to be replaced. My husband replaced fans with remote controls because we both were too short to reach them. No ladder with bed over driver. With dining table up. Bench seat is too narrow for normal size people. Our granddaughters 3 and 7 were comfortable. I haven't hit everything but my husband is disgusted with the workmanship and we are seriously thinking of replacing it. Loved our old Minnie Winnie and should have kept it.

Your right, our ladder for overhead bunk was missing as well,

dealer ordered from Thor and it came 3 weeks later and was the wrong one. Finally got right ladder a month later!

We bought this Thor piece of *** a year ago, had to cancel

south winter holiday for many repairs.

Now 2016 spring & summer cancelled because of mega repairs and problems!

I believe we are up to 5 or 6 pages of problems & faults now.

Note! Thor`s motor home Engineering, quality control, designing, Has to be a 2 out of 10 very disappointed!!!

This unit left the factory floor w/out being inspected!!! This will be the last motor home we will purchase from Thor!!! The quality & workmanship is deplorable!!!

The CEO should be fire!!!

Now I wish we would of kept our '04 Winnie!!!

Storage and draw opens

The cabnet that store my food keeps opening and I have only owned my winds port 2015 7 months in for warranty and they say it's not under it . We go down road and cabnet opens and bangs open and hits other side of coach . We were going to put latch but assumed under warranty and we have them fix so we put foot stool there .Crazy isn't it. Then stairs going out of door has draw does same thing and rattles and if you don't watch draw might be open when stop and you can step into it . I have almost many times . But wanted to wait to get into shop . But we have to pay . I said forget it I can fix it . It took us till 1st Oct to get in for other warranty so now still waiting Thor to approve and I have no motorhome no trips and paying . Nobody ever told me about this problem and we are planning on trading in 2017 to upgrade but I will check other company's and they process before we buy again . We really like everything else about outr first motorhome but not seeing we want bigger .

2016 Thor Vegas

I hate to say it but made in America means nothing to Thor. I wonder if they use American's to build these *** motor coach's. I guess they have no Quality Control at the plant. They must sit in there offices and drink coffee and wave the finished product through. My coach has so many small items that should have been caught at the factory. How do you put a drivers window in that is the wrong size and takes a gorilla to open. It was driven 1100 miles to the dealership and not even the driver noticed the problems. I tried to take it back to get the warranty work done at the dealership,(motor home specialist in Fort Worth Tx.) and they told me the only open they had was in late November, I replied to them it was stuff that should have been done at the factory or been caught by you before delivery. So I take it to camping world to get it fixed. It takes 3 days to get an ok to do warranty work done because they have to send PICTURES to THOR so make sure it is warranty work. Then you have to wait for the parts to be shipped. It's ben 14 days since the parts were ordered. The factory is in America for pity sakes. I own a CRV and had to get a part for it from Japan and it only took 3 days to get here and was installed on the 4th day. Come on THOR live up to the standard of MADE in America which is supposed to mean QUALITY.

I own a new to us 2015 Vegas Thor. We have had problems as well.

The driver side window that is mounted on the vehicle came loose while driving Texas bumpy roads with a sidewind. Luckily I heard the velcro ripping sound and was able to pull over in time to Gorilla tape it to the RV.

Our local RV repair shop was able to replace the fiberglass supporting the window and reattach it properly. So be ware of purchasing from Thor!

I own a 2015 Palazzo and agree. Thor has no quality at all.

They are absolutely horrible to deal with.

Prospective buyers, DO NOT BUY A THOR product!!!!!! Heed my warning!!!!

Water Leaks = DEADLY BLACK MOLD

Hi folks, I found this page by chance after searching and researching options in the fifth wheel and travel trailer market, my wife and I are seriously looking to purchase a trailer. My primary concern is that most of you have experienced water leakes in your trailers and I'm not sure how many of you truly understand the risk of exposing yourself and your family to BLACK MOLD! Black mold is not a joke, it will make you and yours extremely sick. Most people don't know that when construction material is exposed to moisture even for a short time the possibility of a black mold blum is almost certain. This means even if you get the manufacture to fix the problem chances are that behind your wall or under your carpet you will have a massive BLACK MOLD problem. I at one time thought that Black mold was a joke, I thought it was one more thing that "super sensitive folks" complained about, but type in black mold in your browser and please read. I have a very close friend and his family who suffered from such a problem in their newley built home and now my friend and his son have serious neurological issues!!! I realized that the he mold was a serious problem when their newly built home was condemned and they were forced to walk away from their $450,000 home and almost everything in it. Please be aware of the fact that with exposure to water the walls , sub floor, carpet, carpet padding and many other things that your trailer is made of may have a BLACK MOLD outbreak and cause your family to get very sick...
