2015 Thor Palazzo Diesel Pusher Motorhome Review:

What makes the Thor Motorcoach Palazzo a great choice when considering a motorhome? First, the quality is outstanding. This motorhome, created to Thor’s exacting standards, features a fuel-efficient yet powerful Cummings diesel engine that offers a smooth, quiet ride, up to 14 miles per gallon, and a high-performance engine that will go up to a half million miles. In addition, the Palazzo motorhome strike balance between the right size and space will being easy to drive and maneuver. With several models to choose from and two under 35 feet in length, the Palazzo can be parked in state and national parks, offering convenience and security. With a rear engine, the noise level is much lower, and with the engine near the drive axle, the Palazzo moves easily down the road.  The Palazzo line of diesel pushers have both rear and side cameras to help maneuver as well, making drivers much more comfortable and confident, along with a large, vertical windshield with excellent visibility and almost no blind spots. At the same time, comfort, space, and luxury are not sacrificed. The Palazzo’s designers know how to use every foot of space, offering comfort, outstanding storage, and a genuine home-away-from-home feeling. A 34-foot Palazzo has more than 132 cubic feet of exterior storage, enough to carry everything you and your family need for a leisurely and relaxing vacation.

The Palazzo brand of diesel pusher RVs also features some outstanding entertainment features. For example, each motorhome has an outdoor television mounted on the side of the coach. Imagine setting up the grill and some chairs and enjoying the evening outside while still catching the big game on the tube. On the other hand, if the grown-ups want to relax inside the coach, the kids can watch a movie and roast marshmallows outdoors. Each Palazzo RV also comes equipped with a large patio awning to provide plenty of shade while you set up your patio as you like it.
