Mine isnít for sale, and I really like my set-up vs a large Class A, Class B, Class C, or Diesel Pusher

No issues/problems of the Motorhome itself (versus the Ford Chassis), and for me itís what I expected as a value priced product
Remember...Thor builds a box around a stripped Ford chassis.
Itís made of wood and fiberglass and sandwiched wall board
So there is road noise and squeaks, thatís the nature of the beast
If you want a super quiet ride, go with a Mercedes Class B or a high-end diesel pusher.

And like all Motorhomes...things go wrong and break
But if you have the tools and the skill-sets, most repairs can be done by the novice owner fairly inexpensively

The advantage of the Vegas/Axis is the small size vs traditional 30+ foot Class Aís. And, unlike the cramped driverís cab space of a Class C or Class B, the Vegas/Axis cab can be used for legitimate living space
Plus thereís abundant storage space

So...Iím sold on the Vegas/Axis concept

2017 Vegas 25.2

We purchased a 2017 25.2 Vegas last May and love it. We been out about 10 times, mostly long weekends and have had no problems.

We really love our Axis but we are not going to be able to use it much over the next year or so, so selling it seems to be the wise choice. Of all the road trips and camping we have done over the years, with various sorts of camping methods, the Axis has been the most versatile and comfortable for us.

Just as was said earlier, the Axis/Vegas is still what we call an "entry level" rig meaning it has what you want but things were done as cheaply as possible. The gelcoat on the outside costs much less than full body paint so don't be surprised if the finish dulls after about a year. This means if you don't park it inside, you will be doing a lot of waxing and buffing to keep up the shiny finish. Don't be surprised if you find a few leaks like we did with our 2016. The seams where the front cap met the sidewall had a seam molding over it that hid the fact that the seam was not sealed/caulked properly. This allowed water to run inside the wall, through the aluminum channeling and land in a rectangular size area beneath the driver and passenger window. This in turn caused the wallpaper to blister and would end up rotting the side walls. $1700 later, after they had to remove both side windows to find out where the leak was, the seam was sealed. These are some of the drawbacks but you have to remember that they can be bought for almost half the price of the upper level gas motor homes. Tail lights leaking, figuring out how to replace the chassis battery, remounting the water pump so it was quieter.... Got everything the way we wanted it and decided we did want something bigger.
