New 2020 Palomino Puma XLE Lite 16DSX
Palomino Puma XLE Lite travel trailer 16DSX highlights:
- U-Shaped Dinette
- Rear Bathroom
- RV Queen Bed
Spend some extra time exploring nature with this Puma XLE Lite travel trailer! You will enjoy having added interior space because of the single slide, and the U-shaped dinette will be the perfect spot to enjoy dinner. After a long day of adventures, you'll love the comfort of an RV queen bed in the front, and the residential refrigerator will welcome you with a cold cup of milk in the morning.
With the Puma XLE Lite, Palomino has graciously included one year of 24/7 emergency roadside assistance which means that you can travel worry free every time you are on the road. The LED lighting that is located throughout the Puma XLE Lite will keep your eyes and your wallet happy because of the brightness it brings to the trailer and the money it saves you on energy bills. The skylight in the bathroom allows some extra sunshine to add a bit of cheeriness in the morning, and the tinted windows throughout are helpful in preventing fading of precious items inside.

We were on our way from Madeira Beach, Florida to Redmond, WA and had a propane leak. We were driving past Ocala so we stopped at Optmum (where we purchased our Vintage Cruiser) to have it checked out. Even though it was lunchtime, Ed the service rep found someone to get right on it. Seems the manufacturer hadn’t sealed the joints in the propane system. ... More » - Ed

As demand for the Palomino grew, Mr. Landey felt it would benefit his company, Vanguard Ind., to relocate. With most manufacturers and industry suppliers located in the Elkhart, In. area the move eastward seemed logical. Vanguard Industries settled in the community of Colon in 1972. Once in Colon he began to put his plans in motion. By 1973 he had built the main production facility and within days Palomino tent trailers were rolling out the doors.
In 1976, Vanguard added its own Needle Division, in 1978 its own Metal Fabrication Plant, and has several cold storage facilities. On May 27, 1992, the primary production building and offices were destroyed by fire. By late August, 1992, the first 1993 model Palomino rolled of the line in the new 52,300 sq. ft. facility, which was built on the same site as the previous building had been.
The year 1998 continued to see expansion with the addition of a new 75,000 sq. ft. production facility, and another storage facility. In 2002 Vanguard was purchased by Forest River, Inc. This allowed for rapid growth and the introduction of two new towable lines of travel trailers and fifth wheels, Puma and Sabre by Palomino.
