Screen-Shot-2015-01-30-at-9.32.41-AM-300x272Thor Motor Coach’s (TMC) latest Outlaw-brand Class A motorhome toy hauler, the 38RE, is specifically built for people who don’t haul toys. Instead, the Elkhart, Ind.-based builder added an exterior kitchenette to the rear wall, making the newest Outlaw with its folddown ramp patio the ultimate “tailgate” touring vehicle for sporting events. However, according to Jon Krider, TMC’s vice president of product development, the ability to give outdoor enthusiasts an exterior living zone separate from the main cabin wasn’t the main impetus behind its development. “We realized that because of the way we drop the floor in the rear of our Outlaw to accommodate a garage, that area could be transformed into a pretty unique living space — a huge living space,” Krider said. By incorporating the bedroom into the rear of the 26,000-pound GVWR Outlaw, TMC was able to build the space with a cavernous ceiling height of nearly 9 1/2 feet — more than two feet higher than a typical coach. Adding to the 39-foot floorplan, TMC also swapped the usual positions of bath-and-a-half configurations, placing the full bath forward in the coach while giving the rear bedroom a half-bath that’s accessible both from inside and outside. MSRP:$169,000.
