Does anyone know about Palamino campers

My local dealer has a 2010 Palomino yearling 4123 for sale for $6900. Is this a good brand or should I keep looking?

Thanks for any info.

I see responses are slow. Were I live, it is not yet Popup weather. Mine still has a foot of snow on it. I was camping this past weekend with the Scouts with overnight temps below 10 DegF. As we like to say, no mosquitoes!

I have owned a Palomono since 2001. The unit we have is an older version of the Yearling you are looking at. We especially enjoyed the layout when the children were smaller. With three kids we always had to turn the kitchen table into a bed. Having the additional lounge seating meant that my wife and I had a comfortable place to sit and read on raining evenings. In our previous trailer we were left trying to sit on the bed with no backrests. Ouch! Ours came with a three way fridge and furnace which we really enjoy. The outside stove connection means never having to cook inside. I pity T-trailer owners.
As for the trailer, it is well built with quality components (great frame, lift system, jacks, electrical, etc). I just looked at the spec's. The Yearling is reasonably lightweight and can handle lots of additional load so you do not have to worry about loading it up with all your stuff and groceries. At 250 Lbs, the hitch weight is a little on the high side because it will hit 300 with a battery and propane. Just make sure your tow vehicle can handle that.

I would definitely buy another Palomino.

Sounds a little high for a 2010. Remember some 2014's have hit he market...On the NADA site it says "$5100 to $6100" / low & high retail range for a 2010 MSRP was $9400 which we know who ever bought it got 15% to 25% off that price.

My local dealer is selling new 2012's Palomino PuP's for $7400 to $8400. And that is their advertised price which I'll guess you would have more wiggle room on price.

I read a article on RV Business website last week that said PuP's are kind of falling out of favor...While over-all RV sale have started to climb, Pup's are not...Like my local dealer I believe he will be getting out of Pup's..

We had 99' Coleman we bought new, and in 05' was going to buy another Coleman, but once we popped our heads into a hybrid, that was the one. Were on our 2nd hybrid now.

Another option 2002 Pinto

I found a Palomino Pinto for sale for $3500. Going to go see it today. I also put a deposit down on a used Toyota Tundra that was set up for towing, so I may be all set to go camping well before the weather will cooperate. We are planning a trip to Montana this summer so that we can see the glacier before it totally disappears. It's almost time to start researching camp grounds between Nebraska and Montana.

Thanks to all those who replied.

Palomino pop up campers

It all depends on the condition of the camper for the price. some times it is not the age but the condition. that being said I think there is some good advice out there. I have had a very old 1993 Palomino Filly- although it often requires some upkeep My wife and I enjoy traveling in it.

We travel in the south western Pa- Erie, Mercer/Grove City, Prince Gallitzin State and Keystone State Park

Good Luck with what ever you buy and enjoy it!

Thanks for the reply. We ended up buying a 2 year old Jayco Feather expandable. The price was good. $11,000 and that included an excellent WDH and anti sway. I had to replace the thermostat and kitchen faucet (cheapo plastic that it was.) We slept in it last night in 32 degree temps. I think we are going to enjoy this camper.
