Need help fast! Jayco Seneca vs Thor Palazzo

Use about to order a Jayco Seneca FS. Then I ran across the Thor palazzo bunk model with the over cab drop down bed. Don't know much about Thor or a comparison. Need help fast before deal expires! Quality, construction, features, drive, ride... Any help is appreciated.

The Jaycos ride a little rougher...because they're basically built on a modified 5-ton straight-truck chassis. I rather liked the Polazzo, loved the layouts and thoughtful touches.

It's a tough call, because both are well built units. Jayco's build quality is top notch, and Thor's Polazzo has really come a long way. So I vote you pick the one that has the best floorplan. Maybe take both for a spin too??

Jayco product over a Thor product any day of the week. We have looked at a Polazzo and were not impressed. Thor uses lots of glitz and bling on the surface, but underneath it is still a Thor product. The QC is all over the map.

I can vouch for Jayco completely....having owned one for some time. Its build quality has impressed anyone who has been inside. And it's faaaaar from new

That said, our current Damon is a very nice coach....and I would be the first to point any major flaws. But I was less impressed with other Damon/Thor models. Like anything, look it over. You'll find very happy Palazzo owners I'm sure....and as you've read above, others that weren't as impressed.
