Sold my A.C.E.! But got this DP - Thor Palazzo

Don't get me wrong but I liked the A.C.E. It was our first MH and we had no major problems with it. I started looking at the Thor Palazzo when I saw a post about it. After we got back from our 5,000 mile trip, I knew that I wanted something more. The Palazzo seemed to fit the bill. I looked online to get more information and who had them. I found a couple that were about 1.5 to 2 hours away. I went to see them and liked what I saw. Of course the DW had no idea what I was up to at this point, at least until I brought home a brouchure for it. She had been working the early voting for the primaries for our coming elections so she said after she got off work on this past Saturday we should go see it. In the mean time I talked to the salesman that sold me the A.C.E. at our local Camping World. There was one that was at another CW across the state line and he had it brought down to his location. After the DW saw it, she loved it and the features it had that we didn't with the current rig.

Long story short, we bought it on Saturday and picked it up today. Now it is setting in our driveway and we are ready to hit the road to Jekyll Island which is where we had reservations anyway before we got our new one.

Attached is a pic that I took after we got it home.

Just got around to taking a few more pics. We were busy loading it up for our trip tomorrow. The first one is with the slide closed.

Palazzo Small Diesel Motorhomes

Great Choice, I especially like this motorhomes unique open to two-sided, double door cargo area. The slide tray design is really nice, our old slide tray took up a lot of space for all the mechanisms and design, plus I couldn't keep it organized because we had to pile everything on top of it. The top/bottom split design is very clever.
Keep us all posted...

We are on our maiden voyage with it this week. Drove about 400 miles to Jekyll Island. It handles good. I don't seem to notice any wandering like I did with my previous MH. It drives and rides a lot better too. Fuel economy is also better. Overall I have no real complaints or any buyer's remorse.

What kind of TV sat system does it have? I don't see anything in the brochure.
