New 2018 Palomino Columbus Compass 374BHCPRICE REDUCED!!!
QUAD slide outs, a rear bunk house, a bath and a half, plus TWO entry doors are just a few of the features that will draw your attention toward this Columbus Compass fifth wheel by Palomino RV.
Step inside and notice in the combined kitchen/living area of model 374BHC that there are dual opposing slide outs which really help to open up the living space. Along the door side the slide out features a table with chairs plus theater seating with cup holders and an overhead cabinet. The slide out along the road side features an entertainment center with an overhead cabinet, a refrigerator, a pantry, plus a three burner range with an overhead microwave. The interior wall provides a second pantry and a hutch. More counter space can be found at the island as well as the double sink for doing the dishes and cleaning up.
Head towards the rear and you will come to the bunk house. Here there is a slide out along the road side which features a 68" tri-fold sofa beneath a flip-up bunk above. Along the rear wall there is a L-shaped loft bed above the same size bunk below. Across from the slide out there is also a small dresser beneath the L-bunk above. Near the entry door you will find a beautiful frosted glass panel.
The half bathroom features a toilet, sink, and extra counter space. There is also a convenient outside entry door.
Head up the front stairs and find a complete bath on your left. Here you will find a toilet, a sink with medicine cabinet, and a walk-in shower with a dome plus a seat.
In the front bedroom the slide out has a queen bed with nightstands, or if you prefer a bit more sleeping space, then choose the optional king. Across from the bed enjoy added storage with a curb side dresser, and along the front wall there is a large wardrobe with shoe box storage. An additional closet area in front along the curb side has been prepped for a washer and dryer if you choose to add, plus there is also a removable shelf as well.
Outside enjoy fixing your dinner when the weather permits using the two burner cook-top, mini refrigerator, or heat up a quick snack in the microwave, plus more!
Knowledge Of RV'sThank you for all the help you gave us in selecting the "perfect" trailer. We both appreciated your low key approach, in other words you were not pushy. Larry was impressed with your knowledge of RV's especially because you're a "girl"! We are looking forward to many years of fun in our home away from home. Thanks again. - Larry

As demand for the Palomino grew, Mr. Landey felt it would benefit his company, Vanguard Ind., to relocate. With most manufacturers and industry suppliers located in the Elkhart, In. area the move eastward seemed logical. Vanguard Industries settled in the community of Colon in 1972. Once in Colon he began to put his plans in motion. By 1973 he had built the main production facility and within days Palomino tent trailers were rolling out the doors.
In 1976, Vanguard added its own Needle Division, in 1978 its own Metal Fabrication Plant, and has several cold storage facilities. On May 27, 1992, the primary production building and offices were destroyed by fire. By late August, 1992, the first 1993 model Palomino rolled of the line in the new 52,300 sq. ft. facility, which was built on the same site as the previous building had been.
The year 1998 continued to see expansion with the addition of a new 75,000 sq. ft. production facility, and another storage facility. In 2002 Vanguard was purchased by Forest River, Inc. This allowed for rapid growth and the introduction of two new towable lines of travel trailers and fifth wheels, Puma and Sabre by Palomino.
