Cool 2014 Palazzo in Northern WA State - Author

Hi All,
New to Thor, New to this forum, Not new to RV's or computers.
Check out my Profile.

Hopefully this will turn into a good place to meet others with 2014 Thor Palazzo's or similar coaches and ask questions and find answers.

THOR #2676
Thor Palazzo

Hello Tim,

I am interest in the Thor Challenger 37xx, but also impressed with the Palazzo as well. I would appreciated if you could share some of your experience with your Palazzo... such as how was this beauty handling, especially with the air bag suspension, the power of 600 ft-lb of torque as well as the fuel mileage when fully loaded...

Thanks in advance...
Tam Le

Hi Tam,
The chassis has been wonderful, I love the ride and the highway driving is a dream. The turning radius is less than I would like and theres a lot of "road feel" in the steering wheel I could do without, but those are livable.
I hear theres a new improved steering Freightliner is coming out with. I would wait for that. Oh, and a few more adjustments in tilt and seat position would be good. I can fix that though.
As for mileage I havent done any trip calculations yet, I'm expecting eight to ten and if I get more than that it will just be bonus!
Theres been a lot of problems with the building or house part of the RV, just a lack of cleanup and attention to detail during the building of it. I think this is inherent to all Thor Rv's, and maybe all new RV's everywhere, like new cars I think they all have a unique set of issues.
Either way you go it will be an adventure!
Have Fun!
