The retail public gets its first glimpse of the new “Super C” motorhome from Thor Motor Coach, with the introduction of the new 33SW. According to a press release, the new model will be available in the Four Winds and Chateau brands, filling the void in today’s market for “powerful” diesel-powered Class C motorhomes.
Known for its durability and ride quality, the Ford F-550 chassis serves as the foundation of the 33SW with a GVWR topping out at 19,500 pounds. Powered by a 300-hp, 6.7-liter Powerstroke engine with 660-lb.ft of torque and a 6-speed transmission, the 33SW is capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds.
According to Thor Motor Coach, the Ford F-550 Super Duty platform offers owners the benefit of both commercial strength and durability as well as a luxurious automotive cabin and superb ride quality. In addition, the coach will be backed by Thor Motor Coach’s service center network along with Ford service centers throughout North America.
The 33SW come standard with Thor Motor Coach’s HD-MAX high definition exteriors finishes and a long list of standard features that include a 5.5kw Onan generator with automatic start, dual 13,500 Btu air conditioners, slam-latch baggage doors, Bigfoot leveling jacks and a fully molded, one-piece front cap.
Interior amenities include a full-size residential refrigerator, 30-inch over-the-range microwave, solid-surface countertops, 1800-watt power inverter, and solar and privacy window roller shades.
“After the first day here in Tampa, we are getting great feedback on the new Super C Motorhomes,” said Joel Grimm, national sales manager for gas motorhomes at Thor Motor Coach. “The new 33SW is turning heads with the additional living space created using the Ford F550 chassis. Features like diesel power, more maneuverability, better towing capability and better driving comfort are what our customers tell us is missing from the larger Class C RV market.”
