This Palomino Real-Lite soft-side truck camper has got you covered in all kinds of weather and for all kinds of adventures you happen upon. You will appreciate the Rieco Titan electric roof lift so that you don't have to use a hand crank to set up camp. The queen bed will provide a good night's rest, and the L-shaped dinette allows you to relax, play games, and enjoy meals with your significant other. Before you start your day, you can prepare some eggs on the two-burner range, and the milk can be stored in the refrigerator. This unit has a private toilet area, a pantry, and some bedroom storage.
With any Palomino Real-Lite truck camper, you will enjoy a lightweight camper that allows you to camp anywhere you desire. The LED interior lighting and Congoleum flooring will give you a comfortable interior to spend your time in, and the exterior battery charging station is a handy feature that helps you keep things fully powered. The high-density block-foam insulation will ensure that the cold night air doesn't creep in and affect you while you sleep, and the heated, insulated basement is certainly helpful for keeping the camper functioning properly.

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.
