However, I have heard that you could take your 33.x coach to Freightliner and have them re-program the chip for $500 bucks, you will have the engine going from 300HP to 340HP and the I think the transmission torque going up to 700 ft-lb as well.

Some did even say due to more power to weight ratio actually improve the fuel mileage as well.

Again I have not experience with that first hand, but that was discussed on some thread here while back. And the 33.x model is what I am eyeing for at this time.
I tried that with my 300hp excursion.... they will not up the hp unless allisen oks the more hp...the 340 hp has a bigger trans

That is a 2016 33.2 Palazzo, I think just like my 2015. 300 HP.
The layout of these are great, we use the stack washer and dryer all
the time. You should be able to get a great deal in a 2016 and
Thor will stand behind their coach. Good Luck!!

The night stands are great, (I don't have any at all). I like the lights at top of rear cap to see what you're doing after dark. My Canyon Star had those, and they came in handy. All in all, lots of convenient touches on the Palazzo, and the paint job looked quality too.

It would be on my list if I was in the market for a coach in that size etc. I like what I see on video, which would definitely warrant me seeing one in person.

Sorry about that LV. It's getting close to the release of the 2017's and they want to get rid of their 16's. I also remember Thor offering $5,000.00 rebate.

2015 Palazzo Owner

We've made lots of improvements to our 2015 33.3 Palazzo. Recently had our first slide problem which was a broken wire at one of the slide motors. Fairly simple DIY fix. About the comment about the Freightliner chassis, IMHO the chassis, engine & transmission are a HUGE plus. The best feature of this price range MH is what's below the floor. Above the floor can stand some improvement in QC but read about any MH and you find QC issues. For the price I don't think you can beat a Palazzo, especially a 2015 or later.
We got a great deal on ours and we are very happy with it once we got all the little things sorted out. I'm a DIYer & that makes a big difference.
