Hi all, Was looking at the Thor RV site and saw thier new "PALAZZO". Looks really interisting and has just about all i'm looking for when i replace my current unit. Just wondering if there are anyone out there that want to put in there opinions on Thor and there New Unit. Thanks - Denny
I love it! We have a 2004 33' Country Coach with basically the same floorplan except our bed slides out rather than the dresser. We full time in ours with no problems. I love some of the Thor features of this model. Very innovative. Their decor is also nice and neutral and will be timeless. I want to go see one in person to judge the quality vs. ours. Do you know the MSRP?
From their website: "Some of the programs we’ve put in place to ensure our customers are happy include Gold Star Inspection, Rapid Response and Concierge Connection. The Gold Star Inspection requires every coach driven off our complex to pass a detailed 200+ point inspection and road test unlike some of our competitors who only spot check their products. Rapid Response is in place to keep you on the road enjoying your Motorhome. Rapid Response is our commitment to stock the necessary parts to get you back on the road quickly. And rather than assume our customers are happy, we want to ensure our customers are happy so we started Concierge Connection. Every Customer that purchases a Thor Motor Coach receives a personal phone call immediately following their purchase and again after 90 days."

Thor is an older motor home and rv manufacturer. We had a Hurricane, and visited with the factories in Elkhart, IN several times. Their products range from entry level to the top range in quality and service. Yes, there have been various complaints and problems at times with specific coaches, but overall, they build some of the better coaches on the market at reasonable prices. They survived the downturn several years ago, and have recovered nicely. I have not seen the unit you are looking at, it should be up to ther usual standards. If you get one, plan on a trip to Elkhart before the original warranty is up, carry a list of anything you have a problem with, and they will correct any problems and give it a good checkup. The service department is amone the tops.

Thanks everyone for your comments and i priced one from Albany RV and it's around $123,000. Thor has it at $180,000. Wish i could see one in person but guess i'll have to wait because final design and some other things are still up in the air. Thanks again- Denny
Love the mid entry; wish more MHs had that feature. We miss having the awning under the door, the patio at our doorstep, the ease of entering into the kitchen area, and the unobstructed view for the passenger. Great idea.

I really love the look and the floor plan. I don't know much about the quality of their product. I was hopeful that there would be more feedback from Thor owners. I will be going to the Rally in March and will be looking at the Thor products.
Thor owners................. give us some feedback.
If your considering this purchase here's my 2 cents... I looked at one in Tampa and my wife an I loved it. We loved getting into a pusher at this price. So of coarse now we are in the middle of purchasing one now. We loved the large cargo area next to the entry, residential fridge, TV that extents when the living pop out is in, mid-entry, computer tray, and the large shower. We've been shopping for a motorhome for a few years and I think it's stupid that you can't have a real shower in a coach that's less than 300K. It's a fine coach, without a lot of options. But almost everything is standard, fridge, bedroom RV, slide-tray, sound sound, and the full paint. There is 4 options we could choose, duel glass windows, clear bra, electric seats, and an exterior TV.
There is a detailed write up and walk around tour with two 360 degree photos of the living room and bedroom that really gives a good picture of what this coach is all about.
This will be out 4th motorhome, 3 from Thor/Damon but our first diesel motorhome. We have been very happy with the construction quality of our Thor motor homes. Over the past 12 years we have worked with the same person, Mike Bukowsky in there warranty department, and each issues of addressed and corrected quickly. We are on our second dealer, the first deaelrhsip was a joke (that's why they closed there doors im sure) so at that time we worked directly with Damon until finding General RV in Michigan who has been fantastic. Also, I believe that Thor Motorhome is the only motorhome manufacture with a 24 hour tech support line, that's been a nice perk.
I'm talking next week off to clean up our trade in and if all goes well we'll be heading to the Super Bowl for some tailgating in our new coach...
