    I have a 1999 Colt. The canvas needs cleaning. Any idea how to go about taking it off? Or would it be better to clean it while it's still attached?

    I figured it's about time that I add to this thread. I purchased a 1982 Palomino Colt a few months ago and cannot wait to start my remodel. PO already had most of it gutted as he was going to use it as a project camper. Right now it sits with no kitchen area as it was rotted. It also does not have any of the systems in it. PO had removed everything already to check and test them. He didn't get far. As of right now I am debating keeping it completely primitive with no water or electric. PO was not original owner and surprisingly did have the original manual for all the systems in the pup.

    You should scan it in for the database here. Ask Steve.

    I just bought a Palomino Yearling. It needs cosmetic stuff but otherwise in good shape. I am looking for the manual. It's a 2005 yearling, model 2124, the model with the toilet and shower. If anyone has a copy please let me know. Thanks!

    All your going to find is the generic manual that covers all of Palomino's trailers (pup's, HTT's, TT's etc.) due to a fire they had back in the late 2000's.

    Scroll down to the category where your question will best fit (camp driveway, mods, lift systems, etc)... click on that category, then click "start new thread".

    We bought a 2007 Yearling 4120 a couple weeks ago. Been cleaning and repairing a few minor issues. Planning to take it out the week before Memorial Day for our first trip. So far it seems very comfortable. I think we'll enjoy it.

    We just purchased a 2009 palomino y series. Havent tried yet but most of our camping will be dry camping. We installed a new battery, replaced some fuses in the converter. Switched the lights on and nothing! Someone had mentioned to try flipping the switch for the water heater and for some reason the lights went on. Not sure why this worked.

    Just purchased a 2009. Haven't even used it yet and one of the clips came off. Found a nice place to let the door rest when not in use. It will stay there unless I come up with something else. Let me know if you do.

    Hi everyone. New here and new to pop up camping. We bought a 2011 Palomino y-4104 and for the life of us cannot figure out how to run lights on the battery power. Is there a switch somewhere to convert to battery powered source?

    We purchas a 2009, Palomino Y Series, model 4102, this past April, 2019. We have been accumulating our supplies, including the new 12 volt deep density RV battery. Our previous battery had a 15 A fuse installed but wphave learned that we could upgrade to a30A. It came with more than we needed for two senior campers but we're learning. All new vinyl was installed so it's in good shape. Deciding whether we should waterproof the seams on the vinyl or not. Hoping to make our first camping trip ( kinda locally) I a couple weeks. Any suggestions would be great. Backing up? We just bought side mirrors that clip onto ours. Seems everyone struggles with this

    Last fall we acquired a Palomino Pinto 1991 pup! It has its issues but has been functional. We have used it twice this fall and once this weekend. The T-bar (I apologize, new to campers and don’t know names of everything yet) that keeps the slide out/ bunk end from pulling out too far, got caught on the sink hose that came loose (I removed the sink/ stove part afterward, which was planned anyway). Half of the T-bar under the sliding bunk end got pulled loose. I applied silicone to the bar and the screws. It worked for camping this time. Got home and popped it back open and the bar cane loose again. I can’t put in larger or longer screws as it screws upward into the plywood bunk end... I can’t make new holes without taking the camper apart, might as well just buy another pup...

    Well that escalated quickly lol.

    If you post some pics of the damage maybe we can help. I had to repair something similar on my 2005 palomino last fall and got something working.

    We are being given my parent 1986 Palomino Pony Popup. Excited to adventures like we have growing up. Anyone have any suggestions for storing outside (covers, what to put under tires, etc.), how to combat the heat since an air conditioner can not be added to this model, and help with the braces since it is a 2 person job?

    We purchased a Carter cover 5 years ago and it's still going strong... a little dirty but otherwise perfect. I put nothing under the wheels except dirt.

    For heat, we usually just use bunk-end fans. If we're going on a longer trip where it's going to be really hot, and have shore power (those 3 things happen pretty rarely together) we'll bring along a portable AC and run the hoses between a bunk-end window and the screen.
