Our RV was amazing. It functions very well and is very easy to drive. On rough roads we only had a few rattles. The floor plan works perfectly for three people. The cupboards are well built as is the refrigerator.

Livability and layout are what we wanted.
Tows good but we only have a small utility trailer.
Quality and craftsmanship from the factory is sub par.
Sealed over extra screws on the roof because it's harder to just pick them up.
Found numerous screws with the head broken off. Over tightened/torqued.
Ton of spare screws left from the build laying in nooks and crannies.
Paint/decal has blistered from water intrusion in a spot.
Called the Thor warranty department. Told "Tony" I had to fix one spot on the roof because the sealant covering it blistered. That's because they sealed over an extra screw laying on its side.
He told me "great; you need to take pride in ownership"
What an insult. Need to put out a better product first.
Last Thor brand I will ever buy.
Wish I could post pictures of the ridiculousness.

Bought new. When picking up the unit. During walk thru. The exterior tv wouldnt turn on and in dash radio was streaky. They put another tv on it before i left. Scheduled to install new radio. While waiting the drawer uner the stove started droppin bearings from the drawer glide. Scheduled to install with the new radio. Went dry camping. Battery died into one day while running the generator most of the time. Dealership said it was a unsealed exterior plug that water was getting into. They Silicine sealed. The battery still was going dead. They said it was the battery. New battery. Did not put in store only to see if drain was severe. Lasted one day then dead. Called dealership. They said. You have to hit store. But it was less than 24 hours and only propane sensor and antena booster were on. Asked dealership if it could be the Converter. They asked me where the converter was on that thing anyway. Not my first motorhome. I am not naive to how they function. The dealership and this Thot Freedom are junk!

I bought my first RV a Thor Motorcoach Freedom Elite 23h over at Denver Camping World in August of 2015 and drove it back home with my wife and dogs to NY and the first problem I noticed was a missing mud flap (passenger side) and loose bracket (drivers side) on another mud flap. I chalked that up as shoddy workmanship. But after the next year and a half we had many other problems like cracked and bolts missing on rear plastic storage compartment as well as water leakage under rear mattress. Also flickering rear LED light and broken antenna crank handle (just popped apart).
At this point we were out of warranty and my dealership tech said that our Good Sam would not cover anything! So I called Thor Motor Coach and they agreed to pay $1,100 on my $1,600 bill. I have to at least give some credit back to Thor for making this bad experience a better one BUT I am very suspicious now that I really see the inner working parts of my RV.

The 450 Ford Triton V-10 engine is flawless and smooth shifting and very powerful. Love the fact I have and 8000 lb. towing capacity.

Wishlist: auto leveling jacks, Slide out on living area and that's about it.

We put about 18,800 miles on our RV took her out to Glacier National Park in Montana last summer and she ran like a dream. Maybe just some over heating of brakes but we drove almost 7000 miles in 17 days so that was a little bit of a stretch and also gas mileage is very good.

If I had to buy a new RV I would go with a 29 ft. and have slide outs on one side and rear sleeping area (King size bed for sure).

Happy trails!

WARNING! Watch out for any rv that is manufactured from the mean Vikinging "thor" who hassled you even though your RV is under warranty. Get ready this is a long story.We brought this unit December of last year to take with us on mission trips to spread the Good News of the Kingdom of GOD to the places God revealed to us: Valparasio,FL New Orleans,LA Birmingham,AL Montgomery,AL Roberstadale,AL Calera,AL and Dothan,Alabama and in each of these cities we traveled to we could'nt focus to do missions work without runing into CHEAP,RUDE,NASTY, KKK KLAN Behaviour type of people and inexperienced amateurs that are supposed to fix your problems but instead make it worse for example: we were driving through the rain in Robertsdale,AL when we saw a pool of water that was everywhere so much that a baby duck could swim in the puddle! We had to use most of our: clotes, blankets, and towels to absorb the water.The next day we made an appointment for the dealer to fix the leak first thing they asked us where did you buy it from ? After we fought them off to have the leak on the left wall sealed,they did a sloppy joe job on it.Because on our way heading to Dothan,AL NOW BOTH THE LEFT AND RIGHT WALL WERE GUSHING IN WATER! Next,we CALLED someone from Thor corporate they sent Jeff Cox to "seal" the leaks he just spayed a can of foam and the leak STILL persisted.Afterward we had to take a trip to the dealer where we originally bought it from to have it fixed no more leaks from the floor but now then the back bedroom window water gushed in when it rains we had to get some supplies to fix that ourselves at a LOWE'S hardware store. Now the problems were having now is drawer won't close,the generator fumes get in the unit,and the chasiss floor gets so hot we went to three RV fords dealerships to have it fixed and they did'nt do anything they Just took a look at it and sent us home. They just don't build rv's like they used to no more.So the best thing to do is PUSUE THE LEMON LAW FOR RV'S FOLKS!

Fuel economy is around 8.5 MPG driving at 65 on the interstate across the country. Engine has enough power for what it is intended to do, but I don\'t expect to win any races. It is a \"value line\", so it isn\'t fancy, but build quality seems to be on par with competitors. Plastic sinks and fixtures are where they saved money. Still a lot of the same features. No problems so far, but I bought it used so the previous owner may have worked out the bugs. Air conditioner may be a little under sized- if you know it is going to be hot you have to turn it on early. Fridge takes about a day to really cool down, but works well when it gets there. Some of the outside storage areas have locks and some don\'t, the real problem with that is that the ones that do have to have a key to really make sure they are shut. The pass through max storage area will hold 2 8ft and 2 6ft kayaks all at the same time and more. Best feature of the coach! Holding tanks could be larger for more convenience, but everyone else in this class has about the same size. If you don\'t think you need levelers you are wrong. I wish I had them, and the system alone costs almost $3000, so if I had it to do over I would have negotiated that in the price. Not absolutely necessary, but at least having stabilizer jacks would solve the rocking problem. Overall, I am satisfied and find the floor plan very convenient. Storage is good inside and out. If I could make one change, I would add a pocket door for the rear bedroom. The vehicle does feel \"loaded\" when driving, but is capable of making the journey. I would buy this RV again. It is basically a Four Winds with a different name, built the same with less expensive fixtures.
