Florida RV Show: Looking For The New Palazzo

Does anyone know if the new Palazzo rear diesel from Thor Motorcoach will be on display? I read the post under iRV2's news but it doesn't mention when the dealers will have it.

It's the regular North American Palazzo...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~


Not to be confused with the European eleMMent Palazzo Motorhome...

I'll be pretty close to Tampa on the 13th on my may to the Keys so I thought I might stop out if the weather is nice.

Thanks guys, I know someone will know by tomorrow in the AM.

I may have misunderstood your question but the link you provided said this...

Looks like a nice upgrade from most shorter class A's, but that vinyl floor will have to go!

The Euro version looks like a cross between a Hoover vacuum and a Sony Discman. Or a nightmare from the Dune series.

New Palazzo Was Impressive, Very Affordable Pusher Motorhome

Wow, I was very surprised. This coach was priced great. I thought it was at 180K for a rear diesel but the sticker at the show was only $146,000. I liked the regular sized fridge and the shower that even my fat uncle would be happy with . I can even fit it in my 12' garage door because it's only 11' 9" with the slim ACs. The open to two side storage compartment with double doors was crazy big with a tray too. This was very impressive for $180,000 but for $146,000 i should have waited to buy! I'm thankful these manufacturer are thinking of the the common folk who want a rear diesel but don't own a company the just took public. They only offer the Palazzo in on floor plan that is 35' 6" but I would expect others by the time I talk my wife into trading.

The chassis was good too, a 30K Freightliner XCS with the Allison 2100 6 speed, full air (brakes & suspension), 300 ponies, and 5000K towing (no additional equipment needed unlike some others thank god). The hundred and some pounds of LP is welcome, I hate finding a filling station and those tiny tanks really suck. Heck I don't need to list the specs... here's the link: Palazzo's Manufacturers Specs

Here's a few photo I took while I was down there.

we also liked the palazzo alot. My wifes first expression was the floor looked like a patio. We favor vinyl for our lifestyle but this was picked by a designer whos never been in a motorhome. We talked with Adam for about 30 min and even gave him some suggestions ; he was receptive!
We actually tried to buy the unit but as usual lazy days wanted to get romantic so my wife jumped out of the chair and took off. hahaha Tried trading the serrano but the offer was silly. Its definitely entry level but good features for the show price $146000.
