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.

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.
