    Hi there fellow campers! My husband and I were just gifted a 1996 Palomino Filly SDL camper from my parents. The exterior walls on the ends are toast (at least the back one is...the front may be reusable). I am doubtful that the exterior panel on the end can be salvaged due to rotting wood...

    Hey all! My sister and I just bought our first pop up. We’ve always tent camped so this will be exciting, especially because we usually have 3 dogs with us. We ended up finding a 1987 palomino stallion. It really doesn’t need a lot of work, which is good. I’m sure you will see me on here a lot...
