Palomino Puma 253 FBS

Brand new to the site and looking at what may be my first RV since our Popup days. I'm looking at a 2010 Palomino Puma 253 FBS 5th wheel. Wondering if any of you have this RV and how you like it.
Thanks!

I have the 2009 Palomino Puma 245RKS and very pleased with it. Overall the construction is better than I anticipated. The electrical wiring is fairly well done, I have removed all vents from the duct AC system to check that all duct work are sealed up and found they were all sealed well. Most all components are readily accessible which is a plus if you need to service something. It tows great and tracks well behind the TV. Of course the cabinets are not real oak wood but didn't expect that from a trailer in this price range.

To be honest I kind of expected substandard wiring, duct work, plumbing and ect. But really found decent quality, just not high quality cabinets and staples for wall boards and so on.

Good luck in your search whatever you end up with.

Thank you for the information. I have purchased the 2010 Puma 253 FBS. Will be picking it up the first of the week. I am eager to get acquainted with her and make her our own.

Don't have it yet. I haven't even seen it in person. I know that sounds crazy but I found it on line. My daughter and son-in-law lived 20 minutes from it. They gave it the once over. I had sent them a 2 page list of things to check out. I will leave Sunday after church and fetch it from Minnesota.
