Manufacturer's Press Release
July 24, 2015
Elkhart, IN – Thor Motor Coach continues to impress customers across North America with new features available in the 2016 A.C.E., Hurricane and Windsport Class A motorhomes. Thor builds a variety of unique styles, sizes and floor plans that feel custom-made – at a truly competitive price.
The highly sought-after A.C.E. continues to evolve this year. Along with the distinctive front brow which eliminates distracting sunlight and heat, a new automotive-style front cap and integrated LED driving lights add to the long list of driving benefits.
Thor Motor Coach still features the Bird’s Eye™ window, located near the passenger’s feet, so you can see if someone is on your right side while driving. You can also use your turn signals and utilize the side view camera system that makes changing lanes easier and safer.
Inside the cockpit of the A.C.E., comfort is the main focus. Leatherette captain’s chairs make driving long distances more comfortable. New this year is the screen mirroring technology in the touchscreen dash radio that allows you to use your own GPS navigation from your tablet or smart phone. While you’re behind the wheel, the passenger can write about your travels or use their laptop on the fold-out dash workstation that has 12-volt and 110-volt outlets nearby.
Once you’ve arrived at your destination, the living space is phenomenal, no matter what floor plan you choose. With the expectation that an RV looks more like a home, all A.C.E. motorhomes feature Better Homes and Gardens® RV Fabric Collection.
It’s the perfect fit of world class recognition and accessible style. Besides looking great, it feels great. The leatherette sofa is stylish and comfortable and provides a relaxing spot to unwind. The comfort continues into the bedroom with a Denver Mattress® bed underneath a designer headboard and topped with an elegant bedspread.
Not only is the A.C.E. comfortable and inviting, it’s overwhelmingly functional. The kitchen allows your inner chef to shine. The counter space provides more than enough room to prepare your meals while the gas cooktop, oven and microwave make it easy to cook. Once your meal is ready, you have plenty of options to sit and eat. You can choose to sit restaurant style in the cozy dinette, swivel the captain’s chairs around and place the stow-away coffee table in between, or even head outside underneath the patio awning. Storing all your food and supplies is not a problem in the A.C.E. with the ample amount of drawers and cabinets throughout the coach. From the pantry to the linen closet to the Motorhome Mudroom™ compartment in the entry steps, there’s a storage area everywhere you turn.
Hurricane and Windsport brands have new standard upgrades adding extra convenience for customers. Thor knows how important your four-legged friends are and want to keep them safe and close. That’s why they placed the Pet-Link™ Multi-Purpose Tie-Down in all Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes.
It has always received rave reviews from A.C.E. owners and Thor Motor Coach wanted to expand their pet-friendly philosophy to more brands. The Pet-Link™ allows you to keep your pets within plain view while you’re relaxing outside. You can also use it to lock down your bike while you’re away for the day.
Also new this model year is the blank tank flush system aimed at taking the stink out of dumping the holding tanks by rinsing the black tank clean. In select models, Thor Motor Coach now features an 11-cu. ft. residential refrigerator with an ice maker and inverter, allowing you to run off battery power versus the generator while driving or dry-camping. Convenience is definitely important while RVing, but so is your overall well-being. Cleaning time is cut short due to the low maintenance and durability of the residential vinyl flooring, leatherette furniture and solid surface kitchen countertops. You won’t have to worry about where to put your clothes and living essentials with the vast amount of storage areas located throughout the motorhome. There’s even a storage bin underneath the booth dinette that’s great for pots and pans.
A good night’s sleep is essential for a great next day and it’s definitely not a problem in any model you choose. All floor plans have a master bedroom featuring a premium Denver Mattress® bed and a new Cotton Cloud™ mattress in the hide-away overhead bunk. Using the overhead bunk barely takes a minute to set up. Just pull the safety pins, push a button to lower, climb up the bunk ladder and roll right in for the best sleep ever. Let’s not forget the main reason for RVing – bonding with family and friends. All Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes present a variety of areas to socialize whether it’s meals at the dinette or movie night on the sofa. Over half of the floor plans offer an exterior kitchen standard which makes outside entertaining more enjoyable. You can grill chicken and hamburgers, wash your hands, store dry groceries and keep your drinks cold all within the exterior kitchen. You can even go a step further when you opt for the exterior 32-inch TV.
“Consumers’ demands for more amenities continue to grow and this drove our 2016 model designs,” said Chris Carter, Class A Gas Product Manager at Thor Motor Coach. “We know our customers want the biggest and newest technology so we increased the TV size throughout all Class A motorhomes. We also feature LED puck ceiling lights this year. Not only does the LED lighting provide better light distribution but it costs less money in the end because of the low wattage. The changes that we implement into our coaches might seem small but it makes a big difference for customers,” noted Carter.
