New 2019 Palomino Real-Lite 185XSleeps 8!
Palomino Real Lite Expandable 185X highlights:
- U-Shaped Dinette
- LED Lighting
- 8 Cubic Foot Refrigerator
- Tile-Look Flooring
- 15' Electric Awning
Because this Real Lite Expandable comes with a U-shaped dinette and three queen tent beds, it is able to sleep eight people comfortably. In the kitchen, the 8 cubic foot refrigerator and three-burner cooktop allow you to prepare a breakfast feast big enough to feed all of those sleeping guests. Throughout this entire trailer, you will find tile-look flooring which is what gives this trailer an added bit of style.
Palomino has equipped the Real Lite Expandable with several indulgent amenities. The skylight in the bathroom will keep the trailer feeling open and bright as you go about your day, and if that doesn't bring in enough sunshine, you can simply switch on the LED lights throughout the trailer for an extra boost of light. The USB charging station makes it possible for you to keep your modern electronics full of battery life, even in the great outdoors. And even on the darkest of nights, you can still enjoy an evening outdoors because of the electric awning with an LED light strip.
Great ExperienceI bought a Riverside Retro travel trailer from this dealer 3 months ago. These guys were and continue to be very helpful. I am a new RV owner and I had some trepidations due to an ugly past rental experience, but the sales and service guys helped me through my anxiety. An RV is a complicated machine with electronics, plumbing, and propane appliances. It definitely helps to be handy and there were - John

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.
