Like others have said, the dealer told us that they seldom see a Puma once it has left their lot. The only major issue with mine was a AC that didn't cool, which was a Dometic problem, not Palomino Puma and it was replaced under warranty since they cannot be recharged. The service manager for my dealer had me make an appointment, after he checked to see if he had a replacement in stock. Said he wanted me to take it right back home and not leave it there, and when I arrived he had 3 guys work on it and I was gone in 2 hours. Other than that just a couple minor issues, easy to fix.

Puma 253 is a great unit. We drove 900 miles to pick ours up, had a 1 1/2 hour walk thru and left to beat an ice storm, and never had a problem that couldn't be fixed. Yes, one minor issue that I fixed easily to avoid a 20 mile trip to a dealer, and then wait. At this size, these are a hobbie, not a house. It may not be flawless, but with little expense and time, improvements can be made. I love my CAT House.

We have a 2011, 295kbh and love it. I'm pretty fussy and honestly we have not had one issue.

Seems like my worries over the Puma models are mostly unfounded. It is still on the list. So many 5th wheels to chose from...
