The kitchen in this Thor vehicle deserves a special mention. It has a pantry, a big refrigerator, a microwave, an oven, and a burner stove.
The Airstream Classic
Airstream is a big brand. The company has been making retro-style campers for ages. This particular camper is also retro-style and it is one of the best RVs that money can buy.

A 30,000 BTU furnace is strategically located in the middle of this RV. To me, it is the thing that makes this vehicle to feel like home especially in the evening.
