I've got a 33.2 we are 30 mile west of you. Glad to have another Palazzo owner. Where did you buy yours at?

here's a funny one ,

when I went to bring my coach back to storage yesterday with new dolly a man was admiring my coach "and of course I was happy about it " so he asked questions and I answered with a smile , then come's the part about the motor and I tell him it's a diesel pusher with air brake's and suspension and then take him inside to look around. and he liked the floor plan minus the bunk's so I told him the 33.2 is for him , well he's say's is this priced between $ 250 and $ 300 k and I said NO around half that " $150k ", Now he has a big smile on his face and is going to look at a few at the dealer and possibly buy one .

I guess the moral of the story is if someone hasn't looked into DP's they think they cost a lot more then they do. I also told him he can buy one for the $ 300k range and it will have more glamour inside and he was was more then happy with the palazzo interior as I am also

Got it at CW in Greenwood. I negotiated between CW and Total RV in Elkart and CW won out in the end. Sales manager told me last week that if Thor can't deliver within 2 days of release he is going to go up and get it.

We went the other way around. We talked to Greenwood. But we bought from Total Value. We have owned 3 coaches and we bought all three from Total Value.

Safe travels! 19000 miles, impressive! We got home this afternoon and will be headed out again in 2 1/2 weeks. We just rolled over 12500 miles.

He was using them for pads under the jacks. Seems like a good multipurpose item.

Indy, your 33.2 must be neighbors with my 36.1 as we, too, are waiting for delivery next week. The anticipation is killing us. That, and the fact that we have no clue how to operate a DP.

While researching something completely unrelated, I clicked on a link to my state's DMV and learned that my husband and I will have to get a different class license to operate our RV legally in the state of Maryland. Any motorhome with a GVWR over 26,000 requires a class A or B non-commercial license. According to Thor's website, the 36.1 is 28,000.

First we must apply for learner's permits. After a minimum of two weeks, the testing process requires the owner to go around the exterior of the coach with the instructor and point out all the different systems, especially those that might leak, explain the workings of the air brake system, among others, and then complete a driving test. I'm not worried about the latter since I do most of the driving on our gasser, but I certainly wasn't expecting to know, let alone explain, all the various systems of the DP well enough to sound like I know what I'm talking about, LOL.

I am banking on my final walk through, video camera in hand, to help me get through this learning curve. Thank goodness for this forum and the graciousness of all you kind folks who give me hope and courage!

Thanks so much to all of you for all your help with my leveling questions

Here is another option. The big box stores sell packages of anti-fatigue floor mats for use in garages and workshops. I have seen them in plain gray packages of 4 and very colorful packages larger. They are easy to cut to a desired size and i use them for knee pads when checking tire pressure, utility bay setup/disconnect, or any other time I want to avoid knee on the the hard pavement, ground, or sharp gravel.
Jerry, are these the kind of anti-fatigue mats you were referring to? Would these work?

Probably but the link just takes me to the SAMs Club home page.
I get them from Lowes. Could be the same thing or packaged differently.
It really isn't a significant thing for short term storage. You have a more important learning curve with air suspension, brakes, exhaust brake, electrical systems, etc.

If you have not already done so plan on Camp Freightliner.
