This is our second pop-up camper, we currently have a 32ft Travel trailer, but with the price of gas, it has become a small fortune to go anywhere. So we traded a drivable dodge intrepid for the 79 hardsided pop up. That requires a little TLC. The camper box is 14' on a tandem axel. Although upon first inspection the camper was open and seemed to be in fair condition, The roof was rotted around the vent opening, assuming that was all that is wrong it seemed fixable. The current owner and I closed up the camper with great difficulty but we managed. The current owner had the used camper delivered to his home, with intensions to purchasing a tow vehicle, which never happened. Hence the for sale sign. The current owner left it in his driveway for the last year. The deal was made and now I am a proud owner of a 79 Palomino Hard sided Pop-up. Now my troubles begin...... Upon getting it home the wife and I proceeded to open the camper with great difficulty actually we never got it opened, the top was too heavy. It appears the Prior-prior owner replaced the lift springs with snowplow springs (they look exactly like the ones on my plow truck), reading other threads it appears that we need to count the # of coils to make sure that we order the right ones from Palomino. It appears that I do not have the OEM springs. Can anybody with the same camper help me in this with pictures or even a part number. The other things I found wrong was a missing shackle bolt on the rear axle leaf springs, Broken leaf spring and a little more wood rot on the rear panel behind the taillight. The unit is now under a tarp, until the weather changes. Other question I have, if somebody can help with is axel swap or Hydraulic to Electric brake retro fit.
