Palomino not listed on FR website?

I was just surfing and discovered that the Forest River website doesn't list Palomino at all.

What's up with that?

Palomino is not an original FR brand. it was acquired from Vanguard Industries a few years ago. FR has also recently acquired Dynamax, Coachmen, Shasta and Viking.
if you go to the FR corporate website, you'll see Palomino and these others listed on the bottom.

Forest River Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Company: RV, Cargo Trailers, Boats, Commercial, Housing

Guess who owns Berkshire Hathaway.
USATODAY.com - Warren Buffett goes RV'ing as Berkshire buys Forest River

Another interesting article, and magazine I just ran across.

Does this mean that I can get warranty work done on my Palamino at a Coachman dealer?

Non warranty work done, probably. Warranty work, maybe, but not necessarily. Though owned by a single corporation they are their own distinctive brands. Kinda like getting warranty work on a Chevy done at a Cadillac dealer. Best to call the Coachman dealer first and ask.

Same here...perhaps the site is down for maintenance. The link has always worked in the past.

you can't make that assumption. it doesn't work like the Auto industry.
you could take your Palomino to another Palomino dealer for warranty work and they can refuse to do it.
FR cannot make any of its dealers work on rigs they didn't sell, even if they sell the same brand.

i contacted FR and they found a FR popup dealer in town, that would do the warranty work on my Roo HTT. they didn't sell Roo hybrids but sold R-Vision hybrids. but they did the work, AFTER i contacted FR and they got the dealer to agree to do the work.

the only things RV dealers and Auto dealers have in common, is that they have salespeople, sell things with wheels and have service centers. after that, they basically have nothing in common.
especially policy-wise.
