Good Palazzo's VS Bad Palazzo's

I've been thinking a lot lately, irregardless of the fact that some, if not all, issues might be solved on current and/or future Palazzo's, how do you think a conversation between a happy Palazzo owner and an unhappy Palazzo owner would go down at the camp ground? The strong wills and emotions online are most apparent. If two owners were to meet in the campground, one who has just had a terrible time with their Palazzo and another who has had relatively small to no issues would get along?

I have been pondering that scenario for a while now. With as many Palazzo's that have been sold. I heard that 600 were sold in 2013 alone.... That one day this scenario will come to pass. Either it will happen at a rally or just in passing.

13000+ miles and LOVE our Palazzo.
There's a group of Palazzo owners meeting at the spring TDC rally in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Maybe we will see what happens.

We hope to be there in Myrtle Beach. Ocean Lakes looks HUGE!! Hopefully we can get some South Carolina tourist time in while we are there. Has anyone thought about some group tours?

We are going to try to come down that first weekend. We might be able to stay into Monday. I don't know yet. With me and the wife working and kids going to school it is hard to make these gatherings during a work week. Hopefully I will have a MH by then.

I would think that the bad Palazzo's would be out numbered 100 to 1 so most likely it would go in one ear and out the other .
just my thought .

We have 3 Palazzo owners in my local club (72 active members)

I have had 2 service visits at Thor (warranty PDI and water leak). During these visits I met several Palazzo owners. Full disclosure one 33.2 owner was in due to slide problems and he was not happy.

I attended the TDC (41 Palazzo owners) Rally in Eureka Springs, AR May 2013. 5 Palazzo owners attended (33.1 and 33.2 models). They came in from as far away as upstate NY and as close as Claremore, OK. The interesting thing was 3 of us (2 33.1 and 1 33.2) were parked together so we had an opportunity to compare notes and coaches.

Attended the FMCA Great Lakes Regional Rally (490 coaches) September 2013. I was one of the volunteers and I drove a golf cart shuttle all over the fair grounds for 4 days. During my travels I counted 11 Palazzos and I talked to each owner to get their opinion of their purchase.

I am wintering in a RV Resort in Austin TX and one other Palazzo owner (33.3) came in last week but I haven’t had an opportunity to talk to them.

Of the Palazzo owners I talked to, each one expressed that they were happy with their purchase and did not express any strong negative opinions, just small things like are mentioned here on iRV2. Sad to say many of those I talked to did not know about iRV2 but I know a couple owners joined over the past few months.

I expect that those of us who have been fortunate and spend our time enjoying our Palazzo will be sympathetic and helpful to those who have had major issues. I expect that those with major issues will try to learn as much as they can and not make the event a negative experience for the rest. I expect everyone to help each other have a good time, enjoy the events and programs, find out new things and ways to make the most of their Palazzo experiences, volunteer to help, and want to continue to attend similar events. I sincerely hope that anyone with a different agenda does not attend.

If they have had a "Major Issue" they may not be ABLE to attend anyway. I hope we are able to attend. The cancellation fee is steep at $75.00
I expect everyone to be nice and have a good time.
