Wrapped cabinet doors, rip carpet, leaks when connected to outside water, entry door would not close correctly, black water tank falling down, out side sink p trap leaking, awning would stick when you tried to extend it. There maybe more problems I'll find, only have use twice. Be nice to take out and hope there's no problem

I’m confident that Thor will send you new cabinet doors and other parts for free with an email and photos of your problems. Fixing plumbing leaks is frustrating but not rocket science and adjustments to doors and such also should be a one time deal. Certainly it would be “better” if Thor didn’t ship units with so many issues, and certainly it would be “better” if dealers had time and talent to fix them fast and properly under warranty. But they don’t. It’s worth what you paid for it (nothing!) but my heartfelt advice is to fix it and move on. If you are not comfortable doing repairs yourself go to a good independent RV shop and write a check. He items you list shouldn’t cost more than c couple of hundred dollars - at the most - and 5en you can go have fun. I expect that once you get the assembly bugs out of it your coach will give you many years of good service. There are a lot of problems recounted on this forum but nearly all of them are from new owners. There are thousands of “good”Thor coaches roaming the countryside. I hope yours will be one of them soon. Don’t give up on the dream!

Two things are true. Thor won't stop the assembly line even if no parts are available and the dealer is the final assembly point.

I feel so lucky. 2017 Freedom Elite 26. a year and half old. about 22,000 miles. no real issues. Really glad I didnt get the $15,000 worth of warranty on a $60,000 RV

That’s what I had as well (FE 26HE). We loved the floor plan, the price and also had very few issues and none that delayed us or diminished the fun of touring. We didn’t go as far as you though. Only about 8,000 miles in 7 months. We had so much fun in those weeks that we traded on a slightly bigger Winnebago class A. I only hope it works as well.

My Thor 24FE is now back in the dealership shop for the second time in 2.5 months to fix warranty issues; some are the same warranty issues still to be repaired from the first service! All of these issues would have been found prior to me collecting the vehicle if the dealership conducted the "fine tooth comb" inspection that they promised.
Dealership doesn't recognize that multiple attempts to fix faulty lights, faulty drains, intermittent hot water, & and a host of other deficiencies is a great nuisance to this owner.
