This PaloMini travel trailer includes all of the amenities you will need for a successful trip anywhere throughout the country.

The rear kitchen is equipped with a two-burner cooktop for those who enjoy preparing a hot meal while traveling. And in this travel trailer, you don't have to spend all of your recreational time inside of the vehicle because you could also spend an afternoon washing or fixing the top of the trailer on the laminated, walkable roof.
You could not ask for better quality in a travel trailer than what you receive with this Palomino PaloMini. With its hardwood, hand-glazed cabinets, pillowtop memory foam mattress, ball bearing drawer guides, and LED interior lighting, this unit gives you functional elegance throughout each aspect of its construction. And that light-weight construction of this trailer is what gives it a better fuel efficiency than many others.

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.
