Is there an advantage to a dual tone seat? It would be nice if the front seat material were tougher.
The windows open with a turn knob. They hinge outwards and can be left open in the rain. The front windows are also HERH windows, as well.

I like the newer seats. They seem a bit more supportive. I just drove 1650 miles in the 33.3 and they were comfortable. I also got 10.5 MPG for the entire trip, even with 2 hours of idling through Chattanooga on a detour thanks to an accident that shut down I-24. I was doing about 68 MPH throughout. On one leg, about 300 miles, I did test going 62 MPH and mileage for that run was about 12.5. So, there is definitely a cost to keeping up with traffic.

So far, I really like the rig. I do have a few little items I am adjusting as I find them. The bedroom doors, for instance, would rattle, bang and rub things so I used some felt where I would see contact and it is much smoother and does not bang or rattle when driving. The other item of note was the locking pins for the above seat bunk. They seem to fall out with bumps and vibrations then, next thing you know, one side is sagging down. Easily fixed with a drop and lift of the bunk. I addressed this by putting them in place and then lowering the bunk to put a bit of pressure on the pins.

The ride home was uneventful. Drove nice, tracked well, and was a whole lot less susceptible to wind and semis that the Class C. The big difference, the quiet ride. No more V10 wailing at me going up a hill

Wow H2O Looks Great. I'm chomping at the bit to get on the plane (T-72 Hrs) and Head to NY to get my Rig. (Same Bat Model and Same Bat Paint) I too have a 1600 mi trip to get home with it and will be running into some of the same issues though they sound minor and few (lets keep it that way) l'm actually driving her thru Elkhart and will stay at a KOA there on the way home and then straight on to the Rockies. Too bad I couldn't just get her direct from the Thor Shop. It woulda been cool to see the facility.. another day perhaps.

I'll bet if your going thru Elkhart and you call the service department at Thor they would let you hook up and stay all night on their lot. Factory tours are across the street from service at 3pm each day.

I thought about stopping at Thor, but I really don't have the time this trip. As to the dealer, I got a GREAT Deal from RVDIRECT.com (MSRP-1/3) I recommend if you are in the market talk to Jeff Blair.

New Palazzo Owner

Greetings fellow Palazzo owners! I'm happy to say I'm the proud owner of a new 2013 Palazzo 33.2, just returned from picking it up in Florida. I look forward to many interesting discussions about the rig's features (and quirks!) going forward. All is well so far, and I'm now sizing up the various modifications I'll be installing, and I look forward to sharing those with all of you.

One questions that comes to mind already, has anyone attempted to recalibrate the auto-leveling feature of the hydraulic jacks? When it thinks it's level and stops leveling, it leaves a bit to be desired as to leaving the coach in a level state.

Thanks,
Norb

A photo guy with no photos? What's up with that?

I had the leveling calibration done at the dealer when I picked it up. Procedure is in the manual but have not done it myself.

You can take as long of a shower that you want depending on whether you are hooked up to a sewer and you are using city water. We have had plenty of hot water for both me and the DW to take both our showers one after the other. The water pressure is OK using the city connection. We haven't boondocked so I can't comment on the pressure using the water pump.
