How's the quality of your Palamino?

Compared to the only TT I've had in the past (2000 Keystone Cougar) I have to say that The Puma is very good craftsmenship with all the standard equipment of all other brands. Just looking for other opinions.

I don't know about the new stuff but my old 89 model hard-side pop-up was awesome! In fact the people I sold it to 5 years ago still have it. That's almost 20 years old and still holding together. If the new stuff is anything like my old one then it's probably good.

I had a Palomino MXL-RL hard side as well. Loved that little jewel.
Only issues I had were minor.

We have owned ours since the middle of May. We have taken it out 4 times since then and have only found minor "usual" issues. Some drawers don't seem to be lined up straight, sawdust (already discusssed that!!), but for the most part, we have been very happy. The thing that sold ME (not necessarily my DH) on this 26rlss, was the pantry in the kitchen. I looked at every brand here in the Salt Lake Valley in Utah, and they were the only one with that. Also, the overhead cupboards in the slide out. Some had them over the dinette, some over the couch. Some over both, but NONE were the deep ones like my PUMA. I am also impressed with the lack of bouncing this trailer does (we owned a 1986 18' Road Ranger by Kit). I left a little alarm clock on the nightstand and it was in the same place when we arrived at the campground. In the 2008 model, they are putting the drawers under the dinette seats now. I love them. Sorry this is so long, but we are very happy with our trailer.

Had a problem with our 06 Palomino but after a failed attempt by the FR to fix it right we ended up with an 07 and love it even more than we did our 06. FR and our dealer went to the mat on fixing our problems and for that reason alone we would buy another FR Palomino again.

The front cap was seperating from the sidewalls after it was returned to us for a delamination problem above the entry door that FR fixed. Seems that when and this is the only explanation the dealer could come up with is that the manufacturer uses Semi's to transport the units and it seems that the Frame may have twisted when delivered back to the dealership. This defect didnt show up right away. It showed up about 3 weeks after it was delivered back to us. I was away and when I came home went into the unit and the first thing I saw was the seams in the front where the cap and sidewalls meat had a gap in them on both sides about a 1/2 inch wide. Spoke to dealer about this and took the unit back to him and the rest is history.
