Well I finished waxing the Palazzo. Man that is a lot of surface area to polish. One thing that I learned is that water streaks coming from the roof ACs is not easy to get off. In fact they are still there but not as noticeable. Another thing that I learned is that I need some sort of guttering system to keep the water streaks to a minimum. Has anyone put a gutter system on their RV? I found this one and it seems to be straight forward.

Essential Products RV & Marine - EZE RV Gutters

Assuming that I install this where do I let the water run down the side? Won't this defeat the purpose of installing a gutter?

Ones I've seen come off the back of the coach. Believe there's a spout u can add to deflect water away from the coach.

Its safe... I say fairly safe only because some parts look shady, but it is safe to walk around. Just use good judgement.

On my short list

Hi all,

Just started looking at Motor homes and I really like what i see in the Palazzo
I would like to hear from you the owners on your thoughts, are you happy, do you feel you got good value for your dollar, things to avoid things you feel were necessity, what should I pay, dealers you would recommend. also I have a jeep wrangler i want to flat tow, any thoughts on that would help.

thank you
Joe & Brenda

I think that you will love the Palazzo. I have had mine for over a year now and don't regret the purchase one bit. For what you pay it is a very good value. I have the exterior TV which I don't use that often so I probably wouldn't get one unless you intend to use it. Depending on your family needs - kids; grandkids, etc. you might want the optional overhead bed. Our dinette makes into a bed but it isn't for normal sized adults. The couch does fine with the air mattress for adults. We don't have a washer/dryer as the DW prefers to wash and dry in the campground facilities where she can use more than one washer and/or dryer at a time.

As far as your Wrangler is concerned. It is only towable 4 down IF it is a 4WD.
