THOR #15501
New 2018 Thor ACE 29.3

Wifey and I just purchased a new 2018 29.3. Our 4th RV, first motorhome. Maiden voyage was a 1k mile jaunt throughout Calif. First impressions; Had to replace the house batteries as they were obviously dead from sitting on the lot for the last 2-1/2 years. Is a handfull to drive. Probably be looking for suspension upgrades to assist in relaxed driving vs. white knuckles. Ha! Overall, love it! Robert

Congratulations. I had been trying to get one for about 9 months. It is my favorite floor plan with the 2 ACs and residential fridge. I am looking at Windsport 27bs now. I am conceding residential fridge and accepting that the 27b has a flip up bed. I want unit under 30' and despite all of the flack I hear about Thor, I can find no one with a better more functional unit than what Thor has to offer at 30' or less.

I did the CHF first as it is easy and free, then added a steering stabilizer, but the best was a track bar for the rear.

I also added Sumo springs for the front and Centramic wheel balancers to all wheels
