Frame-less Windows.

Two tone Leather in the cockpit. Apparently the accents are done in a subtlety contrasting color.
In addition the Folkstone exterior will be offered as well.

Oh and just a tid-bit here: he said to date there are 195 Palazzo's sold since they were offered. 161 last year and the rest already this year.
I also ordered the 33.3, Anyone know what frameless windows are? I wanted the Silverleaf color but was told it is discontinued, so I went with the Folkstone, thanks for the info... 195 is a good number considering it's birth is 2012.

Greetings Fellow Owners: My wife and I purchased a 33.2 and hopefully will pick it up mid to late March in Elkhart, Indiana. Don't know what year they will tag it or the window type. I have mixed feelings about the crank out units which I have on our 2011 Damon Avanti. We like the rain protection but have had two of them brake the seals and fogged up. We never had that problem with thermopane slider windows. We are looking forward to getting this bigger unit and were happy with the quality of the Thor/Damon/Avanti we'll be trading in. Hope to see you on the road!

Please add us to the list

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but I will anyway. I have a 33.1 Palazzo and the door opens about 80 degrees - all the strut will allow. Does this bother anyone else. Has anyone put a different strut or removed it completely so the door opens 180 degrees? If so,how did you stop from hitting the coach and how did you latch the door?
Thanks
Brian

I agree with you on the door. My Chalenger went back against the coach 180 degree. I ask my dealer about this. They told me they would modify for me. I haven't done it yet. I think I'll undo the shock and see it will go on around

Ok Brian: I just went out and snapped the shock of my door. The door will go all the way around 180 deg. Now at 180 deg the shock bracket hits right in my window . (33.2 model). So all we need is to put stopper & catch like some other models have. You can leave the bracket on your door if the new stop is long enough and then you can always put the shock back on. I think I'll just remove the shock & bracket both.

180 degree door

I did the same - pulled off the strut to see if door would open all the way to the coach. My door strut bracket also would hit the window. I was going to remove both strut brackets and have the door open all the way, but I don't want to drill holes in the motorhome. Can't figure anything clever to accomplish this goal yet.
I don care that the door covers the window because I secured an electric fireplace against the window inside with a TV on top of the fireplace. Couldn't get use to the TV by the dinette. If someone thinks of something clever to have the door open all the way without drilling holes into the sidewalls of the MH, pls let me know.
Thank,
Brian

I bought a new Damon from them in 2008 and then traded for the Palazzo last October. Really good dealer and they are close to all the RV suppliers. And 5 mile from Thor!! That's big! I am really happy with them. If you have not been there they have 7 RV sites you used while your there or anytime you would be in the area. Make sure to take in Shipshewana while you are there. 15 mile east of Total Value.

I called Cummins today about biodiesel in our ISB 6.7 and was told no more than B20.

Hi I am new here, have been reading and studying as much as I can. We don't have a motorhome YET. But we loved the palazzo 33.2 and are thinking when we get our down payment together it's the one we want. Am I correct that they come with a microwave only and not convection oven option? Thanks for the help and for all your great posts
