Solaire 317BHSK owners

We are picking up our new home away from home on Memorial Day.

I'm trying to get an idea of what will go where.

Would any of you be willing to measure the length of the OD Kitchen counter from wall to sink?

I'm wondering if I can put my grill back there and have the dealer install some straps to hold it. I'm not getting the RVQ. I have a Coleman RoadTrip Classic.

Thank you.

Today I put a deposit to have a 317bhsk built for us; late June delivery. We're exited as well.

Our grill fits on that counter. We put foam padding on counter and it holds it nicely.

We brought it home yesterday. The grill table sits on the edge of the sink. It'll work.

How do you like your 317bhsk so far? I am going to pick one up this week.

We love it.

Ask about the recall. Ours has not been done yet; we need to schedule it. There is about 2" of clearance between the top of the tire and the wheel well. Dexter makes a lift kit that'll raise it 1.5 - 2". This is a free upgrade by Palomino.

Purchased our TT in July 2017 and having issue with rip in flooring near dining room table area. Appears when slide is retracted there is something ripping into floor. It's getting progressively worst. Concerned since flooring is one piece throughout TT. Can't see how it can be easily repaired. Waiting for dealership to assess damage. Will keep all posted.

Not sure. Measure from the top of the tire up to the fender well. If 4 inches or less, you need a lift kit.

Palomino dealer install. In my case, it already had the lift kit, but still wasn't high enough. The wrong axles were installed from the factory. Mine had to go back to Indiana.

Palomino solaire Lift Kit

We purchased our Palomino Solaire 317BH on July 2017 but were never notified of a need for a lift kit by recall or dealership. How do you know if you need this kit?

Measure between the top of the tire and the wheel well. If you can't put your hand flat on the tire and twist it up sideways, it's too low. You should have around 4 inches of clearance.
