New Delano Motorhome from Thor Motor Coach is Mercedes-Benz Powered

Posted on 08/21/2019

Elkhart, Ind. – Thor Motor Coach® announced exclusively to its newsletter subscribers over the weekend the arrival of the new Delano™ Sprinter Class C motorhome built on a Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter chassis.

Delano Sprinter RVs feel more like sleek city apartments and feature subtle curves in its cabinetry and calming hints of gray and tan in the interior fabrics. The new cabinetry is from TecnoForm S.p.A., an Italian company whose designs are displayed in many European yachts and caravans. A massive moonroof over the cab-over bunk integrates seamlessly with a new front cap, highlighting the sharp linear exterior graphics package not seen in today’s motorhome designs.

While on the topic of trends not typically found in today’s RV market, the Delano is built on the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter diesel chassis and features an impressive safety system typically found in high-end luxury cars. Standard safety features include:



  • Active Distance Assist Distronic - when enabled when cruise control is on, this system keeps your RV a selective car length distance between itself and the automobile in front of it.
  • Attention Assist - develops a driver profile and compares it to a number of environmental and driving behaviors to detect signs of tiredness and recommends it's time to pull over for a rest.
  • Active Brake Assist - helps prevent accidents by detecting a vehicle in front of the chassis and automatically brakes.
  • Blind Spot Assist - detects if a vehicle is to the left or right of the Sprinter and gives an audible warning when your turn signal is in use and even monitors when a driver is exiting the vehicle.
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist - detects accidental lane drifts with the assistance of the camera in the windshield and brings the Sprinter chassis back on track.
  • Crosswind Assist - detects crosswinds or sudden gusts and automatically compensates so the chassis is only briefly and slightly off track and remains in its lane.
  • Emergency Call - able to notify rescue services either automatically after a serious crash or by the driver pressing the corresponding button.
  • Traffic Sign Assist - draws additional attention to speed limits
  • Wet Wiper System - a rain sensor that ensures optimum visibility even when wiping the windscreen.

With the modern décor, the safety package, and the new infotainment system that can be used by the steering wheel controls, the touchscreen or a voice control system, the new Delano is the gold standard of Mercedes-Benz RVs. For more information on the Delano Sprinter, visit
