I am debating between a Winnebago Adventurer bunk model (it is a gaser, not diesel, but has been recommended by several people who had an Adventurer who switched to diesel but still like the Adventurer more) and the Palazzo bunk model. Less engine noise, higher cargo carrying capacity, "reasonable" price for a diesel, and floorplan are all compelling for the Palazzo.

If anyone is in or coming through Colorado near Denver or Colorado Springs, and willing to showoff your Palazzo, I would be glad to meet you. Seeing one would help make the decision. Also, I am looking for RV shows in the Spring that might have a Palazzo in the area -- if you know of one, please let me know.

Thank you,
-Chad
Did you get ever get to do this trip? Our family is looking to do the same?

We installed the exact shades that are throughout the remainder of the coach (daytime/nighttime shades) in place of the accordion type shades that came standard. We love them!! They changed the whole look and they are just easier to maneuver. They helped a lot with the daytime heating. My husband installed the power switches in the dash, so it looks factory. I'm surprised that Thor didn't just go ahead and install them to begin with. The accordion ones just seemed cheap and flimsy and never worked very well. Since the windows aren't square, there is a small area near the windshield that isn't covered but you can't even see it from the inside. We just made some dark colored inserts that fill in the spot to prevent sun from coming in.

What product and from what source did you purchase your shades? Is there a manual version available?

Thanks !

We just ordered a new 2014 33.3 model at the Hershey RV Show. We can't wait to pick it up in early December. We plan to take a long trip this coming summer during my sabbatical.
