Travel On and Camp Away
Built on a RAM Promaster 1500XT, the Thor Scope delivers true explorer van drivability. Take your travels beyond the beaten path and off the grid with the 190-watt solar panel, charge controller and Onan® gas generator. The added Thule® bike rack on the rear door provides convenient storage accommodation to take along your mountain bike for an extended adventure. The Winegard ConnecT 2.0 found in the 18M floor plan acts as an all-in-one WiFi extender, 4G hotspot and TV antenna while the 18T comes satellite-ready. The freedom to choose the perfect layout is yours, whether you wish to work remote in the great outdoors or enjoy your favorite destinations from an off the grid campground.
Kick Back Beyond Boundaries
Kick on the grill with external LP connection and enjoy a true camper experience wherever your heart desires beneath the shade of an electric awning (18M). Want to bring along extra travel toys and gear for your off-grid getaway? Expand your scope for van life with a 3,500 pound trailer tow-hitch capacity of 3,500 pounds, secured with 4-pin connection. Whether you’re packing dune-ready ATVs or the perfect setup for a picnic in the wilderness, you can enjoy the outdoorsy life beyond the limitations of a Class B chassis. Dry camping is made easy with the Truma® water heated wet bath and cassette toilet (18M) — no dumping station required!
Comfort Behind the Wheel
Keyless entry and swivel leatherette captain’s chairs are only the start of your adventure on the road. Enjoy tunes, podcasts and phone calls with seamless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity. The 7-inch touchscreen dash radio and hands-free audio control on the telescoping steering wheel allow for comfortable and safe travels. Once you’ve reached your next destination, park with ease and keep an eye on your towed trailer with the integrated back-up monitor or easily store the Scope in your garage between outings.
Adapt for Any Adventure
Experience true travel adaptability, no matter which floor plan you choose for your explorer van. Both layout options include a removable table with bench-style seating that conveniently converts into a bed for sleeping space. Experience modern living on the road with easy-to-clean vinyl flooring, extensive euro-style TecnoForm® cabinetry, and a fully equipped galley. Store all of your favorite ingredients in the 12-volt electric refrigerator and meal prep with the stainless steel sink and glass cover. Need more for your foodie excursions? No problem! The 18T floor plan provides even more appliance and outlet space for your convenience. Per standard, the entryway screen door will keep insects outside while allowing you to let in some fresh air for your steamiest gas cook-top meals.
