Thor Motor Coach, North America's #1 selling motorhome brand, has engineered the new 2013 Palazzo from the ground up in response to an overwhelming demand from customers and dealers to fill a void in the rear diesel market. Customers who are asking for the luxury and competence of a larger diesel pusher in a more compact, efficient, easier to drive package will find the 34′ 5″ Palazzo is the answer. Priced like a high-end class A gas coach but with the confidence and amenities the big-rigs offer the rear diesel crossover Palazzo has created an entirely new segment in the motorhome market.
The Palazzo has room for everything and more...
Packing in a 300 HP Cummins turbo diesel engine into the low profile body of the Palazzo gives you all the power you’ll ever need while saving fuel. Built on top of the industry leading Freightliner XC chassis with 26,000 lbs. of CVWR offers plenty of cargo caring capacity, lucky there is plenty of storage to be filled. The 2012 Palazzo even features a 10,000 lbs. trailer hitch for all your towing needs. A tall cavernous double door pass-through storage compartment comes standard with an ultra low-profile slide tray giving you quick and easy access to all your gear. Putting the customers’ needs first the slide tray is well placed in the center of the compartment making it a shelf midway up in the compartment keeping you from having to pile all your equipment on itself to stow it away. Accessing your cargo is a snap with its clever no-look latch that opens the doors wide without the use of a center bar.
During a walk around of the Palazzo you will find an award winning premium full body paint design, 18′ electric patio awning, and heated mirrors are all standard although you may opt for an invisible bar, exterior TV, or dual pain windows. The well-thought-out entry has been designed low to the ground and features a single entry step over the doubles making entry and exits easier for everyone.
The Palazzo’s no compromise attitude was carried over when it comes to ride quality and safety, air brakes and air suspension come standard. The hydraulic one-touch automatic leaving system makes setup a breeze. Even accessing all your dumps and fills have been simplified using this coaches well thought-out Campers Corner, centralizing all your major household service points. The driver and passenger dual fuel fills are sure to save you several trips around the block waiting for an open fuel pump. You can also skip the frustration of dealing with the noise and heat producing appliance while enjoying the camp-side of the coach because the Palazzo utilizes Thor Motor Coach’s Camp-Sense design.
The interior is loaded with smart features and clever designs too. The compact space has been wisely used with a focus on how you would use your motorhome. Down to the simplest of touches like well-placed cup holders for the driver and passenger simply make your excursions more enjoyable. Function and livability should never be optional so every Palazzo always includes an XL adult sized shower, hide-a-way pull-out trash bins, premium day/night roller shades, motorhome mud-room at the entry, brushed metallic 18 cu.ft., residential Whirlpool refrigerator and a matching 30″ over-the-range microwave that give you all the touches of home.
A U-shaped booth, large sleeper sofa, Euro-recliner, and two comfortable rotatable captain’s chairs ensure you have a place for everyone who drops in providing seating for 8 unlike its competitors.
The 2013 Palazzo by Thor Motor Coach is the absolute best value in the rear diesel motorhome market today and is a must see for all class A gas and diesel motorhome shoppers for 2013.
