All the Thor Motor Coach Siesta’s floorplans are thoughtfully designed to ensure maximum comfort. The 24MB, 24SK, and 24ST each measure out to 25 feet, 10 inches. Meanwhile, the 24SS is slightly more compact at 24 feet, 11 inches.

The 24MB and 24ST offer the most versatility, as these floorplans provide a murphy bed or a twin-to-king conversion, respectively. Meanwhile, the 24SK has a flip-up full-size bed, and the 24SS comes with a roomy queen-size bed.

All floorplans offer spacious living room areas, and upfront, you’ll have the comfort and convenience of leatherette, swivel captain’s chairs. RVers will also appreciate the highly functional kitchen. It features a two-door refrigerator, a convection microwave, and a gas cooktop with twin burners.

Take note that there is a slight difference in sleeping capacity when choosing a floorplan. 24MB and 24 SK models sleep four people, while 24ST and 24SS models sleep five. 

Those who prefer to host the occasional movie might prefer the 24SK floorplan, which features theater seating with footrests. You’ll be able to control its blu-ray player with its app-enabled Bluetooth radio coach system, which also comes with the other floorplans.

Meanwhile, 24MB and 24SS floorplans feature a 70-inch dream dinette with footrests, which provides ample seating. Finally, the 24ST has a removable pedestal table, which you can remove and store when not needed.
