THOR #2121
Thor video of 26.1 at Tampa RV Super Show. It’s a good floor plan, and looks nice with paint. I think it should do well, especially with large rear storage compartment and 3,000-pound OCCC.

Rear compartment doesn’t appear nearly tall enough for bikes standing upright, but likely large enough to lay on their side. And as expected, propane are 2 X 20-pound bottles. .

Different strokes for different folks. Two things we couldn't compromise on in this floorplan:

That skinny toilet area.
The queen bed (we like our king).

I'd also be concerned about heat/grease splatter from the griddle on the MH.
Also, black on top wil tax that A/C in the hot climates.

Great points. The toilet area doesnít look that skinny to me, but Iím not that wide so I guess itís all relative. Iíd have to sit there first before ruling out.

Same for bed. Queen is pretty standard at that size motorhome, though Iíd prefer the Twin/King design from 24.1 even better. With either design, I think Thor should elevate bed a bit to increase rear compartment height.

I hope griddle is an option because it would be first thing Iíd remove. I would not use it enough, and to your point, would prefer being away from MH if I used one at all. Another option would be to replace slides with longer travel.

Paint must be an option based on MSRP. Youíre right about black being warmer, and to be honest, at that +/- 27-foot size Iíd want two smaller air conditioners instead of a single 15,000 BTU/hour unit. I helped my son upgrade to 2X 9,500 units and it works great. One for bedroom and one for living area. Even though they are not that efficient, a single 9,500 can run on batteries for long time, and both can run from 4,000-Watt Onan at same time. The 24.1 and 26.1 floor plans lend themselves to Thor offering dual A/C options IMO.

What I see as potential problem for 26.1 is lack of ideal space/location to add significant lithium-battery capacity and large inverter (except for rear compartment). I bet most new owners would want to add lithium before long.

Thereís not much difference in costs between remaining floor plans, though specs are somewhat questionable as usual with new models, and that ďmayĒ affect MSRP.

24.1 = $170,850

25.7 = $173,850

26.1 = $175,350


As of today, Thor specs show new 26.1 built on E-350, but the unit revealed at Tampa has over 3,000 pounds of OCCC, which essentially means an E-450 chassis And E-450 chassis cost slightly more than E-350, so the $175,350 may or may not be correct.

MSRP has gone up about $15,000 per year the last few years.

That's gotta be a typo.

Most likely, but I would double check before buying. Thor shows 12,500-pound GVWR (E-350) under both Axis and Vegas pages, so a typo would have been repeated; not that it is not possible.

The Vegas Blackjack Edition at the Tampa Super Show looks like an E-450 to me, but it could be an early prototype. The OCCC of 3,021 pounds certainly suggest itís an E-450.

The same unit on an E-350 would have an OCCC of approximately 1,150 pounds which would be very low but not unheard of from Thor or other manufacturers.

Perhaps production units will be a little lighter. I donít know how much weight paint adds, but between that, generator, and other improvements an E-350 may not be out of the question.

By the way, I looked at video again and it appears he doesnít extend griddle all the way out either time. There are two sets of slides, and I expect the griddle should move further away from motorhome wall; although it may still splash anyway. Like I said, extra storage and added access to compartment would be far more important to me than a griddle, so I wouldnít want it regardless.

Well, maybe "typo" is the wrong word. Maybe mis-information is the right application. Not the first time Thor has put out incorrect info on the website for new models. I guess time and a picture of the actual sticker will tell.

I agree the video did not show the griddle fully extended:


I've had RVs with both propane stives and grills hung off the side of the wall but in both of those cases there was a barrier between the cooking area and the wall and they could be moved to a picnic table if desired. Not sure if that griddle is easily removable. If I had that setup I'm sure I'd be fabbing up a splash/wind shield to use with it.

The 2024 Vegaís 24.1 is built on the E-450 chassis. Check out the 06:40 minute mark on this video:

THOR #20631
Got ours on Tuesday

Yes the Vegas 26.1 is on an E450 chassis with over 3000 cargo capacity. Yes the griddle is on very long slides to keep it away from the side wall. Suggestion to Thor: add a storage door to the right of the griddle that opens flat for a prep area.
No, it doesnít have 2 propane tanks. Has the same single 9.4 gallon tank that was on our 2018 Axis. Bigger tank would be better.
Radio is sooo much better than the Axxera.
Not wild about the shower in the hall and it needs a handle on the side wall; itís a big step up into the shower.
Selling points for us were the walk-around queen bed with built-in MagSafe phone chargers and great CPAP options. Also the recliner theater seats (would have been nice to be electric). Love the electric driverís seat.
Still wish the Axis/Vegas line had sewer hose storage in the bumper. Still donít like the Girard instant water heater but in some ways itís nice to set the temp and only use hot water. Weíll have to wait and see if we like the 12v refer. Also came with a 100w solar panel. The sewer door is still hinged on the bottom to aesthetically match the other doors but it hampers attaching the hose. I had it turned over on my Axis.
So far my only significant complaint is that Ford didnít include charge and brake wires to the 7pin connector (only lights and turn signals).

Finally price: found a number of 26.1s in the $140k range. Found 2 at $120k and got the only one in California at the time (that we could find online). There's another now for the same price.

Looking forward to a lot of fun camping.

Good Luck. The MSRP's are a joke, just to entice customers when they get the real price. MSRP always seems to be 30% over the actual available prices.

Each time they have eliminated floorplans it preceded introduction of a new one. So whatís next for these unique Class A motorhomes, assuming the end is not near?

In what direction would you like to see Thor take the Axis/Vegas line?


Way to small for lurches like me! Ha
