We are now official Thor owners!

Headed home from Total Value RV in Elkhart, IN where we took delivery of our 2018 Hurricane 31S. On the Ohio turnpike now. The engine/trans is smooth and much quieter than expected. Very little sway or push from passing trucks. Minimal rattles. Only a few minor fit/finish issues at PDI which were quickly addressed by Total Value service. Very happy with the new rig. Hope to meet fellow Thor owners in the future. Click image for larger version

Congrats and good luck. Looks like you upgraded from your Axis. We are patiently waiting for our 31S and upgrading from a Vegas 25.2. We loved the Vegas for weekend trips but got small for week long trips.

Tvs have a good picture. Not big TV watchers when camping but will probably swap 1 or more of them for smart TVs for streaming in the future. Don't care for the bedroom radio setup that plays only to the bedroom or outside speakers. Already thinking of adding a soundbar for the outside TV and upgrading/patching into the outside speakers.

Thanks for the update. I had a Samsung smart tv with a soundbar in the living area of the Vegas and really liked that combo. I will definitely swap out living area tv with a Samsung when it arrives. After reading the previous posts I am considering flying to Elkhart to take delivery and take my time to do some sight seeing on the way home as I never have been to the Midwest.

If you come to Elkhart, def take the Thor factory tour (T or Thu @ 3pm). Right on the floor, very interesting to see how they​ are built.

I know! I can't figure out how to change it! I chose Virginia but it defaulted to Arkansas! I guess I'll change it on my computer when we get home. Won't let me change it on my phone!

Great looking motorhome. Wishing you safe travels and enjoyment on your way home.

From a fellow MH purchaser from Total Value RV and very minor issues the past 3 years. Enjoying our Axis so much.

That overnight camping pad picture brought back memories of our first night in our new MH.

Happy trails!

Hey guys when you get a chance could you get me the outside measurements of the driver and passenger windows? I want to order Magne Shades before my coach arrives in June. Appreciate any help you can give me.
