My 2017 has lots of silicon sealant around everything. What's the longevity of this? Does not seem like I will have any issues soon, but down the road?

I appreciate all the replies, and am making notes. We are headed out tomorrow evening, and will be at the dealers to pick it up on Wed. morning. Can't wait to get it set up Wed. evening and begin our RV adventures.

Palomino Puma 253fbs

Bought new in 2013 and had a leak in the bathroom sink plumbing. Dealer fixed it , no problems since. We stay a minimum of 90 nights a year in it with a large dog. We just love it. Everything is convenient to use and works the way it should. Will buy another! One complaint, the fresh water fill is on the passenger side. Would be much more convenient on drivers side!

I had a 2013 Puma 23FB and just upgraded to a 2017 Puma 24FBS. The 23FB was a great trailer for 4 seasons. Only had one issue with it. The oven needed a new thermocouple. Only upgraded to the 24FBS because I wanted a slide for more room and I love the new decor on the 2016/2017's. I have only used the one a couple time but only a few small issues but nothing major. Had to connect the wires to 2 speakers that they didn't connect at the factory. Water heater wouldn't work on electric but worked on gas. Again, a couple wires were not connected. Dealer fixed that immediately. I also found 2 neutral wires under the frame that weren't grounded to the frame so the dealer gave me the tapping screw to connect them.

I am very pleased with the Puma's and would recommend them to anyone looking for a nice, inexpensive travel trailer.

Congrats and Enjoy!

Pumas in my opinion are the most bang for the buck and overall great trailers.

You do not hear much about them as major problems are rare..........

We owned a 2006 Puma Fifth wheel and now a 2013 (early model) Puma Unleashed Fifth wheel both relative trouble free............ only very minor issues.......... Wish our old Terry's were as good.

We too had a 2014 Puma 23FB, my wife and I knew it was the one the second we stepped in her at the Dealer. We loved it, used her on 16 trips in 20 months, never had one issue or problem. We liked the Palomino product so much that in February we went full time and bought the Palomino Columbus 381FL. I highly recommend them both to anyone in the market.

2010 Puma 253-FBS
Purchased a used Puma 5th-wheel last year and loved it. Finally found a camper that had drawers in the wardrobe. The only complaint that I have is there isn't a heat duct in the bathroom.
