Pricing a new unit

I would expect to pay about $100K with the trade for the Palazzo. If those numbers work, as they did for us, I would jump on the deal. The upgrade to a rear diesel from a Class C gasser is a world of difference. Quieter, better mileage, better ride, more room, more towing capacity, better handling and the list goes on.
Just picked up my 33.2 last Friday and love it! Avg 12 mpg's on a straight run down I 95 at 61mph.

I requested quotes from various in state and out of state dealers. Now if you take the lowest quote to a Camping World and if they don't match the quote [which they normally did in my case] per their policy you will be given a $1000.00 gift card.
I bought mine from the Camping World in Jacksonville FL. The sales manager and the team there really impressed me. They even paid for a night at a camp ground 6 miles away to allow me to shake down the coach on Friday night. They had a mechcanic on call Saturday morning for any issues. They did this because I lived 4 1/2 hours away.
Just my 2 cents!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new 33.2! Wishing you many good miles in your new coach. I think you'll find this a great community of owners willing to help fellow RVers when they can.

Dinette?

Dumb question here but when we looked at one of these the other day, didn't really examine the booth dinette much. My wife asked me where is the cushion you use for table when you set it up as a bed?

How many hours were on your generators at time of delivery? My 2014 from cw had 45 hours. Sounds like a lot. Thoughts?

Definitely a lot. Your only five hours short of your genset's first service.

If so, the dude had to be lost big time unless he took some time to enjoy s'more dry camping on the way. ;-)

I would have the dealership perform the 50 hour oil and filter change at their cost. This is unacceptable!

When I purchased mine it was a show model that was driven from Elkhart to Indy and onward to the Louisville KY show and back to Indy. Total miles, 568 with 14 hours on the generator. It was summer, end of June so I know they used the generator for the A/C. I did my 50 hour service the following February when I had my first chassis service (4000 miles). I use my generator a lot and we are due our 200 hour service soon.

To have 45 hours on the generator the dealership must of ran the generator v/s plugging it in to shore power. No other way to get 45 hours on a factory delivery.
