Running full-speed ahead and building on the success of the A.C.E., Thor Motor Coach shows off the new Palazzo motorhome at the Louisville National Trade Show on Tuesday, November 29, 2011.

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; Thor says the innovative exterior storage is clean, well-lit, and easy to access, all the while trumping the competition’s 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.
