Entering the Aria, the custom dash layout stands out as the main focal point. Every control and switch is within reach and easy to read. The dash has a unique design for better visibility of the road and features a separate camera monitor display.
Luxury is evident with high-gloss hand-crafted Amish cabinetry and hand-laid porcelain tile floor throughout the coach. Soft leatherette seating and an electric fireplace provide a warm environment to lounge or entertain guests. Solid surface countertops, decorative tile backsplash, and residential appliances in the kitchen have plenty of space to cook and make cleaning up easy.
The Aria offers a first for Thor Motor Coach, a 100-watt solar charging system with a power controller. “It’s linked right to the battery bank, so it’s going to be charging the whole entire time,” explained Jon Krider, director of marketing at Thor Motor Coach. “And it’s also nice because it’s a 40-amp charger. Even though there’s a 100-watt panel on there today, you could add two more panels and get yourself up to 300-watts to use the entire 40-amp charger. This could enhance your dry camping experience.”
The Aria is big on technology and brand name entertainment. Slide outs and awnings can be operated with the multiplex wiring control system, which also shows information such as tank levels. Remote panels are conveniently placed throughout the Aria to manage the coach from multiple locations. The Aria features a 50-inch retractable LG TV, Yamaha sound bar and SONY Blu-Ray player. The 40-inch exterior TV features a Bluetooth-enabled sound bar.
All Aria floor plans feature a king bed, 32-inch TV, and vast amounts of storage in the bedroom. The 3901 offers another first for Thor Motor Coach, the Tilt-A-View inclining bed mechanism. This feature adjusts the bed to the perfect angle for watching TV, reading, or a fantastic night’s sleep.
“Affordable luxury would be a perfect way to talk about the Aria,” said Jon Krider. “You’re going to get all the high-end diesel features, but it’s not going to be three to four-hundred thousand dollars, you’re looking at a price point much less than that.”
Options include a power drop-down overhead bunk with Cotton Cloud mattress, a leatherette sofa bed option in the 3901 and a 32-inch TV in the cockpit overhead on the 3601.
