THOR #28896
Picked up a Thor Scope 18M

Really wanted an updated version of a VW camper bus from the old days. Looked online and found the VW California and the Mercedes Marco Polo. I was hooked! Then started making calls, and nobody I spoke with had ever heard of them.

"Isn't that the swimming pool game?" were some replies. Finally, one cat informed me he'd heard of the Marco Polo, but those (along with the ironically named California) were available only in Europe. Further searches revealed the futility of attempting to import one to the U.S.

So ... fished around on the interwebz a bit more and discovered B-Class RVs, discovering those were as close as I'd get to a camper van.

The wife and I stumbled upon a Thor Scope 18M while at an RV sales place, I like the size, she liked what was inside, so they got a sale.

Heh, guess I'm an RV guy now ... though I still prefer my motorcycle.

Congrats and welcome to the forum. We started out back packing(1970's), tent camping(1990's) and then in 2015 bought a Class B Mercedes Benz Winnebago ERA. Fast forward to 2018 and we traded it in for a Mercedes Benz Class C Siesta 24SS with two slide outs. In March 2022 we traded it in for our current Thor Miramar 37.1 bunkhouse with three slide outs and two full baths. You never know how things will work out, but we love the larger coach.

Get yourself a little light trailer and bring that motorcycle with you! It will be your "Toad".
