I have the Synergy and I like the flow of the top nose over the new Delano squared up nose. It looks like a Winnebago now.

In the video it appears four average adults canít sit in dinette because the two closest to window wouldnít fit under cabinets.
We just picked up our Delano today.. but now I have to go out and sit in the dinette to see about head room! I really don't think it is a problem... and hubby and I are both tall but I will let you know tomorrow!

Delano MSRP

As I recall, looking at a new 2016 Winnebago View, the MSRP was just over $130k. At least this new Thor Delano has full body paint.

We spent the day at 3 RV dealers and got a chance to spend time in just about every C or B+ that exists. I thought for sure we would eliminate Thor based on feedback and out of every single coach we visited, we liked the Delano the best.

Fit, Finish, Luxury and floor plan. Totally unexpected and enjoyed the heck out of it.

It IS fun isnít it! Thor makes some good stuff. Might have to fix a few things at first but youíll be fine. Donít let anyone discourage you from what works for you! Looking forward to hearing more as your adventure unfolds.

Absolutely. We started with a 40 foot Diesel Pusher. Then shrunk all the way down to a Four Winds Sprinter.

That was a couple of years ago and now think we want something a little bigger.

That's good to hear! Our 8 month search/education on our first RV has taken us from Class A's to Class B's. Everytime we thought we we nailed down our choice, we found ourselves looking to the next thing. Just last month I figured we'd go 'close, but cheaper', and buy a 2020 version of the Compass or Gemini, only to discover that those models are using a 1/2 version of the newer Sprinter chassis. They don't have the new MBUX system, driving control sensors or seat adjustment memory. The "shell" looks like the new design, but the components are not included. That moved us back to the Delano/Tiburon.

Our timeline is late this year on a build sheet spec on the 24RW floorplan. We want to order levelers and a few other items.

Welcome to the forum! Have you rented a Class A or a Class B? You might find that some things you thought were important aren't and that there are important factors you haven't yet considered!

When you add in the cost of levelers, you might want to rethink your choices some more. We had a 33' Class A and decided we could do with less. Decided that the Class B and B+ didn't offer enough room or storage for the way we travel. The Vegas turned out to be just right for us, with the addition of auto levelers.

The new Delano 24RW has a similar floor plan, but only 31 cu ft of exterior storage. Not a fit for us and the way we travel now.

Thanks Mr. Sunshine!
We spent quite a bit of time in a Vegas 27.7 (same floorplan) as well as a Winnebago 27PE and Baystar Sport 2813 among others. We were definitely on the path to a Class A.

You're right about finding out what is right for us. This will be a "couples only" RV. No kids. No pets. No toad. While no toad may seem unworkable for many, we like the idea of large enough for two, but small enough to be nimble. Things like driving in towns & taking up only two (ok... four) parking spaces. We want to get up and go without hooking up. We want to be able to pull over and stop with relative ease.
At parks and in towns, we will use e-bikes, transit and drive services (cab, rideshare apps).
This will be a traveling vehicle opposed to being mostly stationary.

We hate the look of standard class C's with the monstrous sleep-over cabs. They scream 1970's and just look dated.
Will it work? Is this practical? It might be. Also, we may be in for a rude awakening and lessons learned.

A mid-spring rental of a Sprinter is in our current plans.
Thanks again!
Larry and Jean

FWIW, we had a Toad for years and with our next one wont be using one either. With UBER and other options being so easy when necessary, and us being constantly on the move it just makes more sense to us.

Driveby, you are smart to be doing your homework. Seems like some folks just walk into the most advertised RV dealer and buy whatever the sales sleaze talks them into.

The way we travel makes towing a car work best for us. We stay in many small town and rural areas where rideshare and ebikes aren't happening. It's so easy to unhook and hook up our car that we do so almost every evening. We take a lot of day trips and rarely spend entire days at a campground.

For us and the way we travel (now), the Vegas and our little tow car are the Goldilocks combination for both short trips and long trips. I've had a series of different RVs that were a fit until they weren't. Your results will vary...

Thanks Sunshine. Next to these forums, the best thing we have done is to attend as many nearby RV shows as we can.
We have learned more by striking up a conversation with other couples, listening to what worked and didn't work for them. How they camp. How the get around and how they deal with the inevitable surprises.

Everyone seems so willing to share. These interactions have reaffirmed that we're going to be fine and if we ever need assistance or advise, there are plenty of folks willing to help and offer.

My opinion???
Go with the Synergy & the ST floorplan
That way you donít ever need to extend the slide to sleep

Delano does not have an ST floorplan
The Synergy has the Mercedes chassis if thatís your main desire, with similar accoutrements.


My pet peeve is all the RVs that require the slide in order to sleep.
It really limits opportunity to inconspicuously boon-dock in a Walmart or Cracker Barrel or rest stop.
That is...you stop, get level, and go to sleep.

On Edit...
Hereís a new 2019 with Theatre Seats for $96k. Sweet!

Citation sprinter updated

This is an updated version of the citation sprinter. FYI mine has the hump. You can no longer get the rear corner bed. Which you ether love or hate. We happen to like it. There is a YouTube channel . Mattsrvreveiws. That dose a good in depth review of the Delano.

My wife and I are picking up our new Delano FB this Friday. If there is anything specific anyone wants to know happy to share what I have learned or show anything in photos or video. It's our first RV, but luckily my parents are seasoned experts so they're bringing their RV as well and we're all doing a shake down weekend to find what needs to be fixed right away, as there always is apparently something.

Thor Delano RW considerations

The Delano is definitely not Entry Level. We just downsized from a Palazzo Rear Engine Diesel.
The RW is the only floor plan that has a dinette (2 person) and theater seating to watch TV.
However, the rear slide-out bed is definitely Double or Full Size with no walk-around.
The technology at the Driver location is incredible. And all the functions in the Coach are controlled from a wall-mounted iPad or from your phone! Wow!
