If you're in need of a soft side truck camper that can fit a compact truck then look no further! The front queen bed helps you get a good night's rest so you can be ready for your early morning fishing trips. You can also fry the catch of the day on the two burner cooktop and enjoy it at the U-shaped seating area with a table. If there happens to be any leftovers then you can store them in the three way refrigerator and the storage area next to the refrigerator helps to keep your items out of the way.
Go on more adventures in comfort and style with any one of these Palomino Backpack Edition truck campers! An Alpha Super Flex membrane roof covers each unit and an aluminum frame surrounds them, as well as a high density block foam insulation. The Congoleum flooring throughout will not only be easy to clean, but will also last for years of fun. A Maxx air vent keeps the air circulating, the ball bearing drawer guides will make it easy to access your utensils, and the mortise and tenon hardwood cabinets will have you feeling right at home.

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.
