Key Specifications and Built Quality

Ford® Transit AWD Chassis: Power and Reliability

The foundation of the Thor Compass 23TW's commendable road performance is the robust Ford® Transit AWD chassis, which roars to life with a 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® Turbo Gas Engine. This powertrain delivers an impressive 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, ensuring that you have all the muscle needed for mountainous inclines and long stretches of highway. The all-wheel-drive system gives you the traction required for various weather conditions, adding a layer of reliability that's priceless when you're far from home. As for durability, the 10-speed automatic overdrive transmission promises a smooth and efficient ride, mile after mile.

Dimensions and Capacities: A Closer Look

Diving into the dimensions and capacities, the Thor Compass 23TW embodies a perfect medium for those seeking both maneuverability and spaciousness. With an exterior length of 23 feet 7 inches and a height of 11 feet, it's a sizeable mobile abode that doesn't feel overwhelming on the road. The interior height stands at a comfortable 6 feet 8 inches, giving you room to move without the claustrophobia that some compact RVs can induce.

Storage is bountiful with 15.1 cubic feet of exterior space to house your adventure gear. This rig guarantees a restful sleep for up to three people, so whether you're rolling solo, coupled up, or a trio, you've got ample sleeping arrangements that morph from day to night use with ease.

When it comes to capacity, Thor doesn't play small ball. The freshwater tank can hold 31 gallons, while the gray and waste water tanks cap at 37 gallons and 19 gallons respectively, ensuring that longer stays away from service stations are worry-free. And with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 11,000 lbs and a Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of 15,000 lbs, this rig is ready to tackle both your luggage and any additional towing needs.

Driving Comfort and Technological Advancements

Innovative SYNC® 4 Navigation System

When it comes to staying on course and enjoying the ride, the Compass 23TW's SYNC® 4 Navigation System stands out as a game-changer. This cutting-edge navigation tool means you can relinquish any fears of getting turned around or lost, even in the most remote of locations. Its intuitive interface, powered on a 12-inch touchscreen, offers real-time traffic updates, adaptive navigation that learns your preferences, and voice recognition that keeps your focus on the journey ahead.

Enhanced Safety with Advanced Driver-Assistance Features

Safety is paramount in any travel experience, and with the Compass 23TW, you're enveloped in an array of advanced driver-assistance features that act as your virtual co-pilot. The Ford® Safety Systems offer layers of protection with technologies such as Lane Departure Warning to keep you within the lines, Pre-Collision Assist for those unpredictable moments, and Auto High Beam Headlights that adjust to the road's lighting conditions.

With features like Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) and Hill Start Assist, your travels are not just safeguarded but also stress-free. Rain Sensing Windshield Wipers automatically activate at the first hint of precipitation, ensuring clear visibility, while AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control) stabilizes your RV when it detects wheel slip or loss of traction. These features collectively deliver peace of mind, so you can focus on creating unforgettable memories on the road.

Interior Amenities and Layout

Living and Sleeping Space: Designing for Comfort

Thor Motor Coach takes your comfort seriously, especially when it's time to unwind after a day packed with adventure. The Compass 23TW's interior is a testament to smart design that maximizes both living and sleeping space. The innovative flip-up queen bed with cushioned seating underneath is a highlight, offering you the best of both worlds. By day, lounge on the plush sofa, immersed in a good book or a captivating conversation. When night falls, transform the area into a cozy sleeping space with just a few simple moves.

While the RV queen-sized mattress measures 60" X 74", slightly shorter than a traditional queen bed, the Compass 23TW makes no compromises on comfort. The curved wooden spring base beneath provides enhanced support and air circulation, crucial for preventing mold and ensuring a comfortable sleep. Add to this a well-placed privacy curtain and your personal retreat is complete.

Modern Kitchen and Bathroom Facilities

Gourmet meals on the go are no longer just a wishful thought with the Compass 23TW's modern kitchen facilities. Equipped with a two-burner propane cooktop and a convection microwave oven, the kitchen caters to novices and foodies alike. Say goodbye to the days of sacrificing taste for travel—now you can sizzle, sauté, and simmer with the best of them. The absence of a traditional oven is smartly mitigated by these versatile appliances, allowing you to whip up anything from a morning egg scramble to an elaborate dinner spread.

The thoughtfully designed front kitchen stretches elegantly along the camp side of the coach, featuring a two-tier counter with ample space for meal prep. And for your storage needs, overhead cabinets with adjustable shelves and a large pantry or closet offer plenty of options to stow your culinary essentials.

The rear bath ensures privacy and convenience, including a roomy 24" x 32" shower with a built-in skylight, providing a spa-like experience enveloped in natural light. Finishes are sleek and well-appointed, reinforcing the high standards of Thor's commitment to comfort and style.

Off-Grid Capabilities and Outdoor Features

Solar Power Sustainability: Exploring the 100-watt System

Taking a step towards sustainability, the Thor Compass 23TW is equipped with a 100-watt solar charging system that serves as a supplementary power source. While primarily designed to maintain the charge of your batteries, it's a feature that eco-conscious travelers will appreciate for its green energy perks.

However, it's important to keep in mind that a 100-watt panel offers limited capacity. It can handle basic charging for phones or laptops and run small appliances for a short duration, but it might struggle under the energy demands of larger systems like the refrigerator and freezer.

For those times when you need a little extra juice, the onboard gasoline generator is ready to pick up the slack, ensuring that you're never without power, even off the beaten path. This setup may encourage you to consider additional solar panels or upgrading to a larger system for more extensive off-grid capabilities.

The Joy of Outdoor Entertainment: LED Lighting and Awning

Outdoor living is taken to a whole new level with the Compass 23TW's enchanting LED-lighting and armless awning—a dream for both night owls and sun seekers alike. Whether you're hosting a family movie night under the stars or enjoying a peaceful evening with a good book, the soft glow of the integrated LED lighting creates the perfect ambiance, ensuring that activities don't end when the sun sets.

The innovative armless awning design is another testament to the Compass's high-end construction. Without the cumbersome arms, you're provided with an unobstructed view and extra space for your outdoor haven. The awning extends and retracts with a touch of a button, combining convenience and luxury to elevate your outdoor experience. And when the wind picks up, worry not—the awning's built-in sensors automatically retract to keep it safe from damage.

Connectivity and Entertainment Onboard

Stay Connected with Winegard® ConnecT™ 2.0

Staying connected while wandering the globe is crucial, and with Winegard® ConnecT™ 2.0 onboard the Compass 23TW, you can do just that. This powerful system is a Wi-Fi extender, 4G hotspot, and TV antenna all rolled into one compact, roof-mounted unit. You'll have the ability to connect to nearby Wi-Fi networks, use a nationwide 4G LTE network coverage (service plan required), and watch live, local broadcasting.

Multimedia Options for Every Traveler

No matter how you like to unwind, the Compass 23TW has a multimedia option to suit your style. The central feature is the high-definition TV, strategically positioned to ensure maximum viewing comfort from different areas in the coach. Perfect for movie nights or catching the big game, it delivers a crisp, clear picture that makes you feel like you're right in the middle of the action.

The digital media receiver with Bluetooth® ensures your personal soundtrack flows seamlessly throughout your travels. With dual zone audio control, set the mood in separate areas of the RV—perhaps some soft jazz indoors while the kids enjoy an action-packed playlist outside. Moreover, the various USB charging ports scattered throughout the RV guarantee that your devices are always ready to capture those spontaneous magical moments.
