Plus, since Thor makes so many different types and brands of motorhomes, tent trailers, travel trailers and fifth wheels, you're sure to find the exact model that meets your usage needs.

Perhaps the most important aspect of buying a new Thor RV is working with a reputable dealer. Because Thor products are so widely distributed, you're sure to find a nearby RV dealer that offers new Thor travel trailers for sale in all price ranges. You can use the search feature on our main page to locate the Thor dealer nearest you or to request information. The dealer's knowledgeable sales staff can answer all the questions you have about buying a new Thor RV. In fact, you can rely on the highly trained staff at your RV dealership to help you with all aspects of buying a new Thor motor home, travel trailer, fifth wheel or pop-up camper.

Before you start shopping for a new Thor RV, you need to determine what type of RV is right for you. Recreational vehicles basically fall into two categories: self-propelled and towable. Thor makes both types. You can get information on all the various RV types simply by visiting RV dealers and looking at a lot of units. You can also log on to industry websites, such as, or follow these links in order to help decide which type of RV is right for you.

Visiting RV dealerships will not only help you get a good understanding in what's involved with owning a motorhome or travel trailer, but you'll also get a good idea of prices. Budget is a major consideration when it comes to buying a new RV. Experts recommend that you consider how often you'll be using your new RV when you create your budget. As a rule of thumb, the more often you'll use it, the more you should consider spending. It doesn't make sense to spend top dollar on an RV if you're only planning to use it once or twice a year.

Thor manufactures RVs to suit any budget. From entry-level tent campers to luxury motorhomes, new Thor RVs are available at all price points. And because Thor products are so pervasive in the market, you'll have no trouble finding after-sale service no matter where you travel in North America.

Once you've narrowed your choice to a handful of models, start looking at individual units with an eye for livability. Does the floor plan accommodate your needs? Is the galley large enough? Is the bed comfortable? Can you close the door when you're inside the bathroom? Can you fit comfortably inside the shower?

Because Thor focuses on quality and variety, you should be able to find a Thor RV that meets your personal livability test. Thor motorhomes and trailers offer an almost unbelievable variety of configurations, such as multiple slide options and a vast array of floor plans. Thor also manufactures new motorhomes and travel trailers in many different lengths so that you can get just the size RV you need. Inside, Thor RVs are noted for their tasteful color schemes and optional amenities. Take time to compare Thor models with those made by other manufacturers. This type of side-by-side comparison will illustrate the quality that goes into every Thor product.

Finally, you should always spend the night in your chosen RV before buying it. This is standard practice in the RV industry, so don't be shy about asking your dealer about doing so. After all, buying a new motorhome or travel trailer is a major investment, and you'll be spending a lot of time living in your new RV. Taking it for a "test sleep" before buying is good insurance.

Buying a new RV can be a wonderful experience. Just remember to work with a reputable dealer in your local area, do your own research on RV types, and perform a rigorous livability analysis on your top three models. If you do, you're certain to discover a new Thor that will meet your RVing needs for years to come.
