Built on a Ford chassis, the Thor Citation is designed to outlast rugged trips and tough weather. It features fully welded tubular aluminum roof and sidewall cage construction.  High-density block foam insulation is found in the vacu-bond laminated roof, walls, and floors. The tubular floor system is fully welded and the gel-coat sidewalls come with a full-body paint package. The premium one-piece TPO roof is Energy Star approved, which means you save on energy costs. Hydraulic levelling jacks are fully automatic, which makes levelling your RV is easy and quick.

When it comes to RVs, the exterior is just as important as the interior. Designed to keep you safe, the Thor Citation is equipped with all the necessities to make your trip as safe as it is fun. It features an exterior acrylic grab handle, entry door with a deadbolt lock, and rubber tread entry steps. The patio light lets you see at night, while the outside shower cleans you up before you walk into your home from a muddy day on the trails.

When you walk inside the Thor Citation, you’ll be standing on an easy-to-maintain vinyl floor. Soft touch vinyl ceiling is equipped with incandescent ceiling lighting. A ceiling-ducted air conditioning system keeps the air fresh. To keep the space feeling warm and cosy, the Citation is equipped with Cherry cabinetry — you have the option to upgrade to Maple. Hardware on the cabinetry has an oil-rubbed bronze finish, adding a touch of class to your home. To keep you and your fellow traveller safe, the Citation comes with a fire extinguisher and smoke, LPG, and carbon monoxide detectors. Select areas of the RV come with passenger seatbelts.

Step into the living room and find a comfortable sofa, which converts into an airbed. It sits near an entertainment center that comes with a 32” LED TV, DVD Player and television switch box, antenna and booster. Equipped with Cable television prep and HD/DSS satellite prep, the Thor Citation has everything you need for a relaxing evening indoors. If you would rather watch TV while enjoying fresh air, you can watch your favorite show on the exterior 32” television. Exterior speakers are wired to the coach radio so you can even listen to the radio when you’re outside.

The kitchen provides you with everything you need to make a hearty home-cooked meal. You can chop veggies on the solid surface countertops, and fry them on the three-burner high-output range top, equipped with an oven and stove cover. For quick reheating you can use the 30” microwave. If you need extra space to cook extravagant meals, you can use the flip-up countertop extension. Store dirty dishes in the large double-bowl sink and put leftovers in the 30” refrigerator. When dinner’s ready serve it at the vinyl-wrapped booth dinette, which features decorative lighting. If you’re travelling with kids, you can request a single or dual child safety seat anchored to the dinette.

The bathroom has everything you need to get yourself cleaned up. It is equipped with a power bath vent, foot flush toilet and shower with a glass door. There’s a skylight in the shower, which soaks in natural light, allowing you to conserve energy.

Last but not least is the bedroom. The queen-sized bed comes with a bedspread and pillow shams, and sits across from a 32” LED television. A 12-volt attic fan keeps the air cool and fresh. Nightstands are located on both sides of the bed and a large wardrobe across from the bed provides additional storage space.
