Palazzo, defined as “Palace or impressive private residence”, boldly summarizes the design of the new Thor Motor Coach Class A Diesel Motorhome. The Palazzo intends to follow in the footsteps of its gas market predecessor the A.C.E., and revolutionize the diesel entry level motorhome arena.
The Palazzo’s foundation is a 26,000-lb GVWR Freightliner rear diesel chassis providing more than 5,000-lbs of cargo carrying capacity. Although the exterior dimensions are less than most mainstream diesel products; the innovative exterior storage is clean, well-lit, and easy to access, all the while trumping the competitions volume by thirty-percent. The patio area is completely covered by the awning, and slide rooms do not take away from living area or storage access. The interior of the coach has eliminated the typical diesel cockpit wind noise, the living area is not fully traversed to get to the bath, and cabinet and wardrobe storage is immense with oodles of innovative nooks and crannies.
The story of the Palazzo cannot be fully appreciated until it is experienced. There are no words to describe the feeling you get when you combine these new-age features that give the Palazzo an absolute edge in the diesel motorhome market. Common references include:
• Rear Diesel Pusher Competence…
• Jumbo Basement Storage…
• Small enough to get it in the barn…
• Smooth & Comfortable - Riding on Air…
• Straight Lined…
• Easy in, Easy Out - Single-step Entry…
• Proven Cummings Diesel Horse Power…
• Campsite Friendly…
• Visibly Better…
• Full-Sized Appliances - Residential Style Kitchen…
• Expansive Spaces - Two Slide-Outs...
“Outside of the box thinking, plus an understanding of what will make a dealer successful with today’s diesels, are the reasons we created the Palazzo. The Palazzo is designed to blur the transition from a gas buyer to a diesel. No longer will price or cost of entry distinguish what customers think they can or cannot afford in a diesel.” explained Dana Simon, VP of Sales and Marketing for Thor Motor Coach.
