2013 Thor Tuscany XTE ExteriorThor Motor Coach has announced the addition of 34ST model to its Tuscany XTE brand of luxury diesel motorhomes. The new 34ST joins the 36MQ and 40EX as the most compact floorplan to date on the Tuscany line of class A diesel pushers.

“We are excited to bring this unit to market. We have heard the customers speak and we are listening. We have seen major retail market share increases in our larger Tuscany and Tuscany XTE models, but we continue to get requests for that smaller coach, with big time diesel amenities,” says Adam Gudger, national sales manager for Thor Motor Coach. “The 34ST is the full package!”

2013 Thor Tuscany XTE FloorplanThe 34ST diesel pushers are powered by the Cummins ISB-XT engine rated at 360-hp, and 800 ft. lbs of torque. According to Thor, compared to gas engine motorhomes in the 35’ range, the 34ST boasts 75 percent more torque. Standard exterior features include an Onan QD 8,000-watt diesel generator, Energy Management system, 2000-watt power inverter, and lateral arm patio awnings. The Freightliner chassis has a 55-degree cramp angle on the front steer axle, allowing the 34ST “unsurpassed maneuverability and increased stability.”

Highlighting the interior is a large U-shaped dinette, while the opposing Hide-a-bed sofa with air mattress can be converted for additional sleeping when needed. Modern cooking conveniences include a stainless steel residential refrigerator, stainless 30” over the range convection microwave, and timeless Samsung solid surface countertops.
