    Traded into this Vanguard Palomino Colt. The PO had the top popped up when I got to his house. We got it lowered down but not closed and tent inside. Tied it down to haul home. Tried to lift top up on my own but this thing is heavy. Rigged up a gantry out of a carport frame and used some ratchet straps to get one end up in a locked position.

    We had an ‘84 Palomino Shetland. The VIN was scribed on a plate on the A-frame.
    The cables in our lifter arms were bad, and by the time we did a renovation all but one of the arm springs were broken. We ended up replacing the arms with the C & R ones from Canvas Replacements.
