You're going to love camping in this truck camper for three! Once you arrive at the campground, use the electric roof lift with a remote for easy set up, then head inside to make lunch on the two burner cooktop. You can enjoy your meals at the dinette, and the ingredients can go back in the pantry and three-way refrigerator when it's time to clean up. There is a comfortable queen bed up front with foot lockers for your belongings, plus the private toilet on board will be super convenient for nighttime restroom breaks!
With any Real-Lite truck camper by Palomino you can sure you are getting a durable camper made to last thanks to the alpha super flex membrane roof, the high density block foam insulation, and the hi-gloss exterior fiberglass. Whether you choose a soft side, hard side, or hard side max model, you won't be left wanting. LED interior lighting and mortise and tenon hard wood cabinets will make your camper feel more like home, and the Congoleum flooring is made to last through years of adventures. These campers include black Rieco Titan convertible jacks (electric on Max models), an exterior battery charging station, plus solar prep if you plan to go off-grid.

Real-Lite SS-1609 Reviews
As demand for the Palomino grew, Mr. Landey felt it would benefit his company, Vanguard Ind., to relocate. With most manufacturers and industry suppliers located in the Elkhart, In. area the move eastward seemed logical. Vanguard Industries settled in the community of Colon in 1972. Once in Colon he began to put his plans in motion. By 1973 he had built the main production facility and within days Palomino tent trailers were rolling out the doors.
In 1976, Vanguard added its own Needle Division, in 1978 its own Metal Fabrication Plant, and has several cold storage facilities. On May 27, 1992, the primary production building and offices were destroyed by fire. By late August, 1992, the first 1993 model Palomino rolled of the line in the new 52,300 sq. ft. facility, which was built on the same site as the previous building had been.
The year 1998 continued to see expansion with the addition of a new 75,000 sq. ft. production facility, and another storage facility. In 2002 Vanguard was purchased by Forest River, Inc. This allowed for rapid growth and the introduction of two new towable lines of travel trailers and fifth wheels, Puma and Sabre by Palomino.
