Your own bedding and kitchen amenities can travel with you where ever you go, so why compromise on comfort and luxury. You can sleep on a pillowtop mattress in the master bedroom with storage and a washer and dryer prepped closet if you choose to add those optional appliances. Just imagine having clean clothes for a month of traveling. When it is time to eat, the rear kitchen layout offers enough space to make meals thanks to the dual slide outs. You can use the counter space and kitchen island when preparing meals all while watching the 50" LED TV. As you drink your morning coffee or nighttime glass of wine while relaxing on the sofa or theatre seats, take a look out the windows to enjoy your surroundings.
With any Columbus fifth wheel by Palomino you can enjoy the finer things while exploring the countryside. From the 8'5" wide body with painted fiberglass front cap on an all welded aluminum frame superstructure to residential crown molding throughout, you will continue to love all the residential details every time you hit the road. You will also appreciate the MyRV system, the 30" residential microwave for baking and reheating leftovers, the central vacuum system, and the many upgraded features you will find in each model. Come see why owning a Columbus fifth wheel is the correct choice for you!

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.
