Palomino Pop Up Camper Trailer

All about models of Palomino pop-up camper trailers.

Palomino started its first steps in the business of pop-up camper trailers in 1968, at the time when the wave of “baby boomers” started discovering the beauty of nature, opening in the same time the whole new horizons for recreational industry.

It was the “child” of Mr. Vern Landey, former tent trailers distributor who felt that he can design and manufacture better and more “user friendly” models of pop-up camper trailers.

In 1975 Palomino introduced the “Fold-a-Wall” series of pop-up camper trailers representing the best of both words: strength and security of hard-wall construction combined with the flexibility of folding camper.

This great innovative solution strongly influenced the whole RV industry.

Over the time Palomino proved to be one of these few RV manufacturers that survived “on its own foot” the time, competition and changing environment in RV industry. Ability to adapt designs to rising expectations of customers, large selection of models (from small modestly equipped units to luxurious ones) combined with good quality helped Palomino to not only meet needs of broad spectrum of camping aficionados but also exceed their expectations….

Palomino’s headquarters and main manufacturing plant is located in the heart of Southern Michigan and Northern Indiana Amish community – known for hard working, integrity and high ethical values. No wonder that thanks to these “human assets” Palomino brand name (as the company claims) can be associated with these three words:

Craftsmanship, Quality & Confidence

Craftsmanship “translates” to innovative designs that not only function seamlessly but also offer elegance – a necessary “ingredients” of great camping experience.

Quality is a combined effect of using good engineering practices (“idiot’s proof” and “designed to last”), high quality materials, brand name furniture and appliances and very strict control process.

Confidence in Palomino pop-up camper trailers is assured by 24/7 roadside assistance programs, very well operating replacement parts department and Palomino’s financial backing by Forest River Inc. – a group lead by legendary pioneer of RV Industry - Peter Liegl. Forest River group have under its umbrella two other RV manufacturers – Rockwell and Viking while itself is owned by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway, one of the world's largest holding companies. These are certainly very good credentials….

I guess after such introduction confidence “flies high”, so it is a great time to introduce you to Palomino’s line of pop-up camper trailers.

Called also Tent Campers, they offer many different floorplans, from small easy to tow units to spacious ones with slide-outs, with various levels of standard features and long list of options to meet the individual needs and provide comfort and fun.
