THOR #4010
Mfg name on title of my Thor Citation

Hi all, I recently bought a used, 2015 Thor Citation Sprinter, but the title shows the manufacturer as AC/ACE The VIN is correct, etc, but I don't know why it doesn't say 'Thor.' Anybody else have this?

A.C.E is one of the many brands under Thor Motorcoach Corp umbrella: it is indeed a Thor product.

When I bought my Thor Axis 25.1 last June in Michigan and drove it to California where I live to register it, California put FORD as the manufacturer even though I said it was a Thor. Gotta love bureaucracy.

Well if they punch the VIN into a computer it will come up as a Ford E-Series.

Yeah...beaurocracy....geez, it's even hard to spell.
My insurance company goes by the VIN which shows it as a 2014 Mercedes instead of a 2015 Thor. Well, drive safe.

I defense of motor vehicle bureaucracies and insurance companies, VINs (Vehicle Identification Number) are assigned by the chassis manufacturers. The motors and stripped chassis are then bought by the coach or body builders. The VIN does not change and is the sole identification for the completed motorhome or specialty vehicle (ambulance, delivery, service truck, etc.).
The bureaucracies are using the only original identification there is, hence the designation of the chassis rather than the coach.
