Elkhart, IN - Thor Motor Coach’s innovative A.C.E. motorhome drew crowds of enthusiastic dealers during the 48th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, KY.
“There was a non-stop flow of dealers and press from the start of the show until the end waiting to hear the full story of the A.C.E.” said Dana Simon General Manager of the Gas Class A & C Division of Thor Motor Coach. Dana went on to say “Listening to the input from dealers and paying attention to what the retails customers actually want; our staff put together a truly exciting product that is clearly a hot product that’s a winner in today’s market.”
General RV’s, General Manager, Bob Green stated “Looking at the A.C.E, I have to say, Thor Motor Coach has really captured what the market is asking for and hit a remarkable price point. I have no doubt, with their continued commitment of providing high value coaches for less; Thor Motor Coach will be successful.”
The Class A & C Evolution, or A.C.E., backed up its hype with an intriguing story behind its long list of innovative features and marketable benefits while hitting an amazing price point. The evolution begins in the cockpit where the windshield and front cap’s integrated visor is designed to help eliminate distracting direct sunlight and heat. The driver will get enhanced vision of the passenger side of the coach with the brilliantly placed window on the floor line. The driver also benefits from a well positioned large conversation mirror above the driver’s seat giving them a complete view of the living space.
The functionality continues with Camp-Sense™, it’s our answer to basement storage that properly locates major storage compartments on the passenger side, under the patio awning, keeping it dry and easily accessible on the camp side. A logical Camp-Zone™ design centrally places the noisy heat producing appliances on the driver’s side of the coach away from the activities. Intelligent design can be found with the A.C.E.’s Camper’s Corner™ that conveniently locates all the camp site hookups to the driver’s side rear of the coach.
The majority of RV owners are pet owners and the A.C.E. introduced a solution to the overwhelming demand for a pet friendly motorhome. Owners have always had problems finding a good place to attach their pet and often had to resort to using the entry handle as an anchor for their pets lease creating a tripping hazard around the entry point of the motorhome, but that will never be an issue with the A.C.E.’s Pet-Link™, integrated exterior tie down. The coach also has a Kibble Station™, an integrated food bowl that is FDA approved. The paw and claw friendly linoleum is an absolute must have for a successful outing at even the muddiest campground.
Intelligent design is also found in the extra wide entry door area that hides numerous storage spots, including a Motorhome Mud Room™ to store dirty shoes and gear. A storage drawer and tool box are incorporated in the entry step which is great for storing tools, gloves and other RV gear without having to track through the coach. Even a well placed broom and coat closet at the entry door follow the conveniences typically found in a home.
Livable elements are found elsewhere in the EVO29.1 floor plan including a family friendly electric overhead bed, thoughtfully designed pantry storage in the kitchen, dual linen closets in the bathroom area and a dash work station with 12 volt and 110 volt connections.

Bill Fenech, Thor Motor Coach’s President and CEO said, “At an unbelievable price point the A.C.E. has hit the market with unique industry changing features never seen before. A lot of the excitement comes from common sense innovations that will change our industry. We are incredibly excited for our dealers and retail customers.”
