Mike,
Give Customer Service @ Thor a call - give them your Vin# -- they can give you the weight they took when your coach was complete. Coach is weighed with 1/4 fuel in tank. All other tanks empty. We have the 33.1 and they gave us our weight. We were almost equal --

We are looking forward to learning and sharing information and experiences with the group. We live in the Seattle area and would love to hear from any other local owners. See you on the road, Tim & Jolie Rodriguez
Hi! Welcome to "the family"! You will love your new Palazzo and you will enjoy your new "support" team. There is a wealth of information on this thread that will help you get used to your new Palazzo and all the quirks of owning a new MH.
We live on the other side of the country from you, in Louisiana but maybe we can meet at the 2014 Thor rally in Myrtle Beach, SC! We have a VIP (Very Important Palazzo) section of the campground all reserved! I hope you will come out and join the fun!

Love the Palazzo!

[QUOTE=Jlh8022;1702780]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

Hi,
For the money you can't beat the Palazzo! It has all the space and bells and whistles like higher dollar RV's without the high price tag! You will really score if you can find a 2013 to buy. I don't know where you are located but I will tell you about 2 that I know of for sale.
2013 33.1 @ Berryland Campers in Ponchatoula, La. 1-877-370-7001
2013 36.1 @ Johnny Bishop RV in Columbus, Ms. 1-800-569-9847.
We bought our 33.2 from Johhny Bishop and they gave us a really good price and took care of the Thor warranty work very well.
Good luck, and I hope you choose a Palazzo! You will not be sorry and the Palazzo family on IRV2 is wonderful!

tow dolly and car


driver side - passenger side

front 4400 - 3850


R dual 7040 - 9350


total - 24,640 lbs

also what psi do you think I should be running in front and rear with these #s

thank's
mike
Spoke with Thor today and my empty weight with only 1/4 tank fuel was 21,594 no water no propane

FL 3458 FR 3224

LR 7552 RR 7360


i ALSO TOOK THE COACH TO THE TRUCK WEIGHT STATION ON THE SIDE OF I-95 JUST TO RECHECK , THEY CAN ONLY DO AXLE'S SO

FRONT 7580

BACK 16100

TOAD 3560

SO THE TOTAL WEIGHT OF THE REAR IS ONLY 400 LB'S DIFFERENT THEN THE 4 CORNER WEIGHT SO MAYBE IT'S CORRECT , NOW THE FRONT IS 670 LB'S LITER THEN THE 4 CORNER WEIGHT AND THAT'S WITH ME SITTING IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT AS WHEN I DID THE 4 CORNER I WAS OUT SIDE THE RV " 200 LBS MYSELF " NOW IT'S LOOKING LIKE 870 LB'S DIFFERENT IN THE FRONT .

SO BOTTOM LINE i THINK I STILL NEED 110 PSI IN THE REAR DUAL'S AND BETWEEN 90 AND 95 PSI IN THE FRONT

SO TOTAL RV WEIGHT IS AT 23,680 LOADED FROM TRUCK SCALE
AND GROSS WEIGHT WITH TOAD IS 27,240
THANK'S
MIKE
