Question Expecting WindSport 29m 2022 Delivery

Good Morning All. Ordered a WindSport 29m 2022 model.......to be delivered anytime. I posted this a couple of months ago but thought I would solicit additional comments.

I have thoroughly researched this model online. My understanding is that Thor quality has improved a bit the past few years????? Does any one have a 2021 Hurricane or Windsport and willing to comment on their first year experience. Thank you All!

Can speak for the new models, but once all of the Thor issues were worked out, we like our 29m. The only disappointing thing is having to drive a medium duty truck every time we go camping.

I second this.

Me too. Itís a pretty sure thing that youíll have a few items needing attention. Hopefully theyíll all be minor. As for the driving experience, you might as well just embrace it. I find the truck like behavior to be rather endearing.

Welcome to the forum. Go through every system several times with the dealership and if something is found that needs attention, have it in writing for them to repair/replace. Enjoy the new ride and experience.

You wil likely have some issues. Try to find as many as you can during the PDI and force the delear to fix them to your satisfaction before you sign the paperwork.

The good news is that you are in Ohio it would seem. You are very close to the Thor Factory Service Center in Wakarusa, IN. If you have any major issues while under warranty (and even after), I would schedule an appointment there to have work done before I took it to any dealer.

I spent 3 hours during pdi and took the document someone created for pdi. Found as many as possible..but until you drive 1000 miles and camp twice..no way to know

We bought a 2018 Thor Windsport 29m. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Done lots of upgrades like; RoadMaster Anti-Sway bar, Sumo Springs in the front and new Bilstein shocks. Drives and handles like a dream. Took out the terrible sofa and put in a pair of electric recliners, Thomas Payne, with massage & heat, Spare Tire carrier, Scan Gauge, Aqua-Jet variable speed 12v water pump, new King size mattress, Ceramic window tinting on all windows--made a huge diff in how hot it gets in the summer and last but not least had J.C. Refridgeration in Indiana replace the propane/electric fridge, a Norcold to a 12v system with a real compressor. It is worth every penny and don't ever smell and propane exaust fumes!!! Good luck with your new toy!!! Bob & Wendy Trice

Very true. The Thor MC finished coach is stored winterized in an outside lot near the factory. The fresh water system is pressure tested with 20 psi air, but no water. The waste water systems are never tested. The PDI check list for the dealer gives instructions to fill the fresh water tank with 20 gallons of water and to check all fitting and faucets with the system pressurized and fill the water heater and check for correct propane and electrical connections and operation. Water from the tank shuld be used to partially fill the black and gray water tanks and the system checked for leaks. The black and gray tanks should be emptied and the coach filled with at least 20 gallons of water prior to delivery.


We bought our Hurricane in Texas (MHSRV) in January, so it was still winterized. In the delivery barn, I watched the delivery tech go through the checklist to de-winterize the coach and check everything for leaks, showing me the panel that had to be removed to access the back of the water heater for de-winterization and the panel under the sink to access the water pump. Fortunately, the delivery tech did an outstanding job of showing us how the coach works and where everything was located. The coach was so well prepared there only two warranty items after about 6 months. The use/store locking relay failed and several LEDs in the patio awning were very dim. On our way to Branson. MO, we stopped by Youngbloods RV (a Jayco dealer) and they fixed everything while toured their RV store. Took them about an hour. Thor MC covered everything under warranty. (By the way Jayco did not become a Thor Industries division until 18 months later.) So it still stands, that our Hurricane has never had a repair of any kind at a Thor MC dealer.

I have a 2018 Wingsport 27B and so far I have been happy. I was under the RV yesterday changing the oil. BTW - I made a huge mess. I noticed that the CHF had already been done. I bought the unit new so I am a bit confused. I noticed right off the bat that the ride was a lot been that my previous ACE 30.1 but I just thought it was because of the shorter length.
When you receive your new RV, congratulations BTW, I would be curious if the CHF is now being done at the factory

Follow-Up Question

Our 2022 Windsport 29m will have the HD-Max Exterior. Does anyone know if the HD Max Exterior (gel-coat with decals) is clear coated? I realize full body painted units are generally clear coated but I am not finding anything that indicates the HD Max units are clear coated.

If HD Max is not clear coated, does anyone have a product/s recommendation to achieve exterior "clear coat like" protection? Thanks for the expertise.
