Thoughts on 2018 Thor Hurricane 29M?

We're looking at upsizing from a Class C 2018 Four Winds to a small Class A.

We're considering a 2018 Hurricane 29M. I'd be interested in hearing feedback from anyone who owns a similar unit.

Thanks in advance!

The 29M is what we currently have in the driveway. I like it, the wife doesn't. My biggest complaint is the location of the TV. Hers is the ride quality. It does beat you to death on the interstate but on better highways it is acceptable, to me anyway. All the other stuff like piss poor build quality and peeling seats is in the rear view mirror.

We have a 2020 29m, we are in the 3rd year of ownership and my wife and I still like it as much as we ever did. The floor plan is perfect for us, king bed is great, lots of storage in the living space. TV is positioned good for us as we always sit in the captainís chairs when parked. The outdoor kitchen turned out to be of more use than we initially thought it would and I am now glad we have it. We tow a small car and there is plenty of power for that. The build quality was poor, but no different than other similar Thor models we looked at. I have done quite a lot of work on it myself, mainly handling and soundproofing upgrades, and now it is a pleasure to drive. This is the only motor home we have ever owned and it will most likely stay that way. We have driven it from Michigan to south Texas three times now and hopefully many more times.

I forgot to mention that at first while shopping for a motorhome we only looked at class Cís, but after experiencing the huge windshield and all the drivers leg room (I am 6í3Ē) in a class A there was no looking back!

We got a Windsport 29m in 2018 and LOVE IT!! The perfect size for 2 people. Be prepared to fix things because Thor RV's are cheap and don't use quality parts or durable items!!! The cheaper the components the more profit, but you may get one that never gives you grief?? I've repaired many things and had many systems repaired or replaced but I still own it and it serves me well. If I had it to do over I would have tried to find a Coachman or a Fleetwood that was a better fit but I try to never look back, YOU CAN ALWAYS SPEND MORE MONEY but not necessary get more coach, It's a crap shoot???? Good luck and pay to have it gone thru, worth a couple hundred bucks to be safe,, "NOT SORRY"!!!!!!

I have a 2018 Hurricane 34J. It has the same engine and chassis as you Hurricane 29í, so it will give you more towing power and a smoother uphill ride than mine. But mine runs great, I just took it on a 6000 mile trip last summer and towed a 4500 lb SUV on a 1000lb tow dolly. Only one problem, just check the bearings, and ball joints on the front suspension. They will probably hold up better on your smaller unit, but the steering loosened up at the end of my trip and I needed an alignment.
