Palomino SolAire Expandable 147X highlights:
- Sleeps Seven
- Walkable Roof
- Queen Tent Beds
- LED Lighting
- Electric Awning
When you travel in this SolAire Expandable, you will be traveling in style. This unit provides ample sleeping space with the ability to sleep seven adults comfortably. In the kitchen, you will find a three-burner cooktop, perfect for creating those family-style dinners you are used to enjoying at home. This trailer includes a fully-walkable roof which is a wonderful feature for those times that you need to get on top of the trailer to clean the entire unit. After a long day on the road, you can spend your evening relaxing and star gazing outdoors before you head inside to sleep in one of the two queen tent beds.
Palomino has equipped the SolAire Expandable with several indulgent amenities. The skylight in the bathroom will keep the trailer feeling open and bright as you go about your day, and if that doesn't bring in enough sunshine, you can simply switch on the LED lights throughout the trailer for an extra boost of light. The USB charging station makes it possible for you to keep your modern electronics full of battery life, even in the great outdoors. And even on the darkest of nights, you can still enjoy an evening outdoors because of the electric awning with an LED light strip.
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.
