RUVs are a relatively new addition to the RV world, blending SUV style and versatility with RV living space.

Also referred to as mini-Class A motorhomes, RUVs often feature a curved front windshield and a more rectangular body. RUVs are designed to make everyday trips and excursions far more comfortable. Take them out for a weekend, a sporting event, or a festival, and bring all your favorite modern comforts with you.

Your RV is available from these Thor Industries subsidiaries:


  • Compact and easy to drive

  • Can be difficult to park in tighter spaces
  • Height can sometimes cause clearance issues
  • Driving area takes up front portion
  • Ideal for short trips but not full-time living
