Need info on Palomino HS_2902

I am looking to purchase a 2021 Palomino HS-2902 and was wondering if there is anyone with first hand knowledge of any problems with this unit?


Would like to hear from anyone that can shed light good or bad with this unit.


Any pointers on what to look for at the dealer to ensure the unit is not rolling off the lot with issues.


Thanks in advance

It might help if you posted what truck you're putting it on.

Not trying to be smart but all Palominio's have some sort of problem. It seems to be in their intrinsic nature being one of the most economical brands. Our 2020 palomino pop-up truck camper (Mfg in May 2019) came new with a leaking propane tank, battery with a bad cell and a rickety dinette table that broke on the second trip. Still waiting after a year for warranty reimbursement which I doubt will happen. We had to drive a some finishing nails in the cabinetry where the lame factory staples were used to fasten panels together. Having said that by last fall we had it working pretty good after a new propane tank, new battery and installing a aftermarket Lagun table. Not trying to discourage you because we love out camper but just so you know you will likely have to tweak a few things to get it woking perfectly.

Near the top left of your screen is a link to "Library." Click that, then in the left column, under "Most Popular Downloads" is "PDI Checklist."

Get that list, print it, and take it when you go to pick up your trailer. Plan to spend 2-3 hours making sure everything on that list works as it should. Make notes about what does not work

Refuse to accept delivery or pay for the trailer until EVERYTHING on your list is fixed acceptably and demonstrated to you. If you don't do this, you could be forced to wait months while they get around to doing the repairs.
