THOR #1599
Thor Venetian

https://thormotorcoach.com/venetian/

So I guess this is a new model for 2016. After one year with the Hurricane, we will very likely be looking at starting to full time this summer. Now I'm wanting to upgrade to a DP. Have been looking at a Tiffin Pheaton, but saw this new model from Thor. Seems to compete with the Tiffin, and sort of looks like an upgraded Palazzo......anyone been looking at these new Venetians, or have any first hand comments? Although I have had my minor problems with the Hurricane, and CW....after researching, and talking to fellow RV'ers now, I don't think I have had any issues that even more expensive RV owners have not had. So yes, I would buy another Thor product.

Tom

We are looking at purchasing a 2017 Venetian A40, our 1st RV.
Here are changes for 2017 models:
Multiplex wiring system, JBL sound bar, A new wood Color for the cabinets(pacific cherry) Wood frames on wardrobe doors. USB charging station at each night stand, Bedroom ceiling fan, New stainless steel kitchen sink, Induction stovetop, New Décor( coastal) 32" exterior TV standard( used to be a option).
8 to 10 weeks to order.
We definitely want the drop down bunk.
Only thing I wish they had were roll up power cord and hose reels.

Wow, that sounds great! Have not researched the Venetian further yet......will thor offer it as an all electric coach? Would love to have Aqua hot. We are going yo full time starting this summer, and will probably keep the Hurricane another 6 month minimum.

Congrats, and hope you love it! We just drove home a new 2014 American Coach Eagle! The Hurricane was a fun little unit but we have hit the road full time now. Traded the house, for a condo on wheels!
Cheers

The Venetian M37 has made our short list. We're still trying to resolve the diesel vs gas in our minds, so we just have to take our time and see if we can arrange some test drives. We also like the Challenger TL a lot.

This is the one we have now and loving it. Over all price is what made up our mind over a diesel. The diesels we liked were all over 100k more then we looked at, the maintenance side at about a 1/4 of the price , plus where you can take it to for a service. Oh and we are loving the outdoor kitchen...

Thanks for the comments. The kitchen and the floor plan attracted our attention.
