Thor Palazzo 33.1.... Opinions?

Hey everybody! Newbie here (both to the forum and to RVing) shopping for a good "gently used" new-to-me RV. We're a small family of 3 shopping around for our first MH. My mom is currently living in hers and got us hooked!

So here's the question: We've found a 2013 Thor Palazzo 33.1 with 19k miles at what seems to be a reasonable price for us. I found an older thread here discussing this model, but I didn't want to resurrect the dead. For those of you that have owned / driven / looked at this model, we'd greatly appreciate your experienced opinion.

Thanks y'all!

I would do a search on the forum. I hate to bad mouth a product. See for yourself.

Thanks for the tip... Sometimes what you don't say speaks volumes.

Thor Palazzo 33.1.... Opinions?

The Pallazo had some "challenging" years.
The main issue was with the slides.
I believe those issues are supposed to be resolved now, 2016.
The reason this is important is if the 13 had a design flaw, but it has since been fixed properly, then it's no longer a design flaw in the coach.
If they are selling because the slides don't work well consistently , then it's still a problem.
So in a nutshell you may hear "that coach is crap".
It's not if it has been fixed.......

Thanks, everybody, for the opinions and insights on the Thor! We decided to pass on this model and, to be honest, we're really glad we did... The next day we found a sweet deal on a 2007 Fleetwood Providence 39V! The wife and I fell in love with it! Scheduled to take delivery on Thursday.

I may be a little biased on the Providence, but nice choice! We bought our 2005 39J in 2006...gently used for one year. It's ten years old now and still running great. I take good care of 'er and we have had no major issues. The only major expenses we've incurred were for upgrades we performed years after our purchase, such as a residential fridge and the RV Armor roof coating.

You'll love that full wall slide, wish I had one! I would have the dealer however cover that left rear wheel hub with a nice chrome cover at their expense, LOL!

Happy Trails!

Craig
