My new to me 1993 Palomino TXL. Before pics and project updates.
The wife and I just purchased a new to us 1993 Palomino TXL. It's 95% solid with working appliances (purchased for a mere $750) but definitely needs some updating. In the coming months I plan on:

I have a coleman sedona that I used for years then I found a 1998 dutchmen 1203 real cheap it had only been used 5 times wasn't really looking for a camper but hard to pass up after I bought it went on line to research and really never found much on them so I thought I check and see if anyone has one and what they think of it       thanks kenny

I have a 1997 Dutchmen 1203 and love it...it was real easy to tow and good to set up...the only thing that irked me about it at the start was the plastic hinges the manufacturer put on the storage compartments...I changed those out real quick...I've towed it thousands of miles and never had a problem...however, it is going up for sale in the near future as I purchased a '09 Rockwood Roo last fall and really don't want to have 2 RV's in the driveway...I went to the "Darkside"....lol

Turkey...That was my first pup. I bought it used on CL and afterwards I noticed I couldn't find anything on it either.
I sold mine a few years ago.

thanks for the input I put it up the other day when it warmed up a bit it looks real nice i just got worried when I could'nt find much on the net the old coleman has become part of the family over the years but it's pretty small compared to the dutchmen i might keep it till my wife makes me get rid of it  thanks kenny

I do have manuals for my dutchmen, but they are in it at the moment and it is stored in a friends farm shed for the winter...they could be copied if needed, but I won't see it for a couple of months

I also have the manual for the Dutchmens. They are all pretty much universal. If you would like a copy just send me an IM or just let me know some how
