Thor Motor Coach announced today the “New Era Begins” at the 48th Annual National RV Trade Show which takes place Nov. 30 – Dec. 2 at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) in Louisville, Kentucky (www.rvia.org). The introduction of new floor plans, upgraded standard features, and an evolutionary product called A.C.E., Thor Motor Coach is the company poised for the future.
The Class A & C Evolution, or A.C.E., is the motorhome with a story. Blurring the line on what traditionally was called a Class A or Class C, the A.C.E. creates a class of its own. This class of motorhome was designed, inspired and dedicated to the retail customer and the demand for a shorter, fuel efficient, ultra functional and affordable motorhome. “It’s truly innovative in design and functionality, and priced for the masses. It is my job to make sure we build motorhomes that function into the future, and the A.C.E. is the motorhome of the future”, mentioned Ann Spratt, Vice President of Operations at Thor Motor Coach.
Bill Fenech, Thor Motor Coach’s President and CEO said, “With input from dealers, retail customers and using motorhomes ourselves, we were able to load the A.C.E with several all new innovative features. I believe the A.C.E is the most practical and user friendly motorhome on the market. It truly combines many of the best features of a Class A and a Class C motorhome with some unique features never seen before at an unbelievable price point. This product is so exciting, I can’t wait for dealers to see it.”
Dealers and the media are invited to come early to visit the Thor Motor Coach booth 1101 at Louisville, to get the show started with the most innovative product for the new year.
