the Palomino brand is the only TC manufacturer, in the entire FR group and Palomino was a relatively recent acquisition of FR.

so, there's only the one FR brand of TCs. and not going to be a lot of Palomino owners out there, since they have only a small share of the TC market, Bigfoot and Lance being much bigger players.'s Truck Camper forum would be a much more active place.

not trying to push you out, just trying to inform you as to why the TC section has such little activity here.

We have a pop up truck camper for our shortbed but its not made by FR -its a 1996 Shadow Cruiser camper so we dont input, however...this board is rrrreally quiet, prob due to fewer owners of this type of RV

If you plan on going off road in a camper you must go pop up, light weight, and 4WD. Any thig else and you will bash the camper on trees, tilt precariously on uneven roads, break the tie downs, get stuck, etc. Light weight pop ups only have porta potties ( note that the Palomino 1608 pop up has a toilet but it weighs 1700 lbs).
