Astoria Class A Diesel Motorhome Reviews
When the economic environment slowed the pace of sales for the RV industry, Thor Industries was not exempt. However, even during the recession Thor experienced an increased market share for some of its motor coaches, one of which was the Thor Astoria Class A Diesel Pusher motorhome.
First introduced in 2004 under Damon Corp, the Astoria was an entry-level motor coach and one of the lowest-priced Class A diesels on the market. When parent company Thor Industries consolidated Damon Motor Coach and Four Winds International into a new motorhome division, Thor Motor Coach, it completely redesigned the Astoria brand.
A big change was the introduction of 40-foot floorplans that offer a king bed triple slide, a 40-foot queen bed/bunk bed quad slide, and a 36-foot quad slide featuring a queen bed mid-ship. Fiberglass front and rear caps were added to the full body paint gel-coat exteriors. Dual pane windows, a tinted one piece windshield, and a radius corner domed TPO roof add to the high quality construction. There were also important operation improvements such as the three-camera backup monitor system with audio support and front-mounted heated chrome mirrors added to all models.
The Astoria is currently manufactured in three floorplans ranging in length from 37’ 4” to 39’ 10” with exteriors heights of 12’ 8” and exterior widths of 101”. These coaches are built on a Freightliner XC chassis with a Cummins ISB-XT Diesel 360 HP engine. It rates a GVWR of 32,400 lbs.
The coaches are available in color coordinated awning packages with an electric entry door awning and electric patio awning with remote control. The Astoria diesel pusher motorhomes have a full basement, pass-through storage, and six-way power ultra-leather reclining driver and passenger seats. The interiors have a luxurious look with modern décor and plenty of living area with heights of 85”. These Astoria coaches sleep up to eight comfortably and have full kitchen, bed and bath areas. Though the Astoria Class A diesel pushers do not offer as many floorplan choices as other motor coaches, each floorplan has plenty of features, amenities, and options to fit any of your needs or desires.
