Take your tech on the road with the Thor Sequence smart Class B RV

Tech-centric van-style RVs can enhance road trips, tailgates, and weekend getaways. New technologies in the Thor Motorcoach Sequence 20L Class B RV aid setup, monitor vehicle operations from a single control panel, and help you stay in touch with the outside world if you can’t totally cut yourself off.

The nearly 21-foot long 2020 Sequence van is built on a RAM Promaster 3500 XT rear-wheel-drive window van powered by a 3.6-liter 280 horsepower V6 engine with a peak 360-pound-feet of torque. There’s a 24-gallon gas tank, and the van can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

The Sequence sleeps two people and seats four. There’s a wet bath with a toilet, shower, and sink plus an outside shower. The small kitchen has a two-burner electric stove, a convection microwave oven, a single-door refrigerator, sink, Euro-style cabinetry, and solid surface countertop.

Thor’s wireless Rapid Camp+ control system is a single-point touchscreen display. From that panel, you can control the leveling jacks, generator, patio lights, and more. A popup device connector stack on the kitchen counter with AC and USB ports serves as a central point to plug in and charge your devices.

If you park at a campground with utilities, the Sequence has a 30-amp detachable shoreline power cord, but there’s also a standard Onan RV QC 2800 gas generator and a 1,000-watt power inverter. An 11,000 BTU power-saver low-profile air conditioner is on the roof along with a 190-watt solar panel connected to a solar charge controller.

Onboard capacities include a 20-pound LPG tank, 26-gallon freshwater tank, 13.3-gallon gray water tank, and a 13.5 gall0n waste water tank. Two Group 31 AGM house batteries are on board. A Truma Combi Eco Hydronic 14,300 BTU furnace and water heating system keeps you warm and the water hot.

Standard equipment on the Sequence includes a 12-foot Thule power patio awning with LED lighting, Thule roof ladder, Thule roof rack system, and a Thule bike rack on the rear door.

Standard entertainment features include a 24-inch TV in the living area, with and electronics cabinet with HDMI cable and USB charging ports plus a combination Winegard Connect 4G/Wi-Fi/digital TV antenna. The electronics cabinet is both cable TV and HD/DSS satellite-ready.

There are two different Sequence floor plans. The wet bath is in the rear with both plans, but the sleeping/living and kitchen areas differ. The van’s driver and passenger seats swivel to face the living area, and a flip-up table can serve as a table or desk for the passenger seat. The Sequence list price ranges from $91,875 to $93,125, depending on the floor plan.

GPS Tracker for your car

Whether you’re concerned about your vehicle being stolen or just want to keep tabs on a teen driver, you’ve probably considered installing one of the many car GPS trackers. The high price for LoJack or other subscription-based tracker services may have kept you from pulling the trigger, but these days, a highly-rated device is much more affordable.

Installing a car phone mount in your vehicle is the best way to make sure that you have easy access to your smartphone when behind the wheel. While you shouldn't be using your phone while driving, having it mounted on your windshield, dashboard, vent, or anywhere else will let you take a quick glance when you're using a navigation app, or to change your playlist when you stop for a traffic light, for example. Instead of having to pick up your device, it will be easier and faster to get these done while it's on a car phone mount for less time of having your eyes off the road.
