New 2019 Palomino SolAire 163X
Palomino SolAire Expandable 163X highlights:
- Sleeps Seven
- 8 Cubic Foot Refrigerator
- Tile-Look Flooring
- Electric Awning
This SolAire Expandable is a wonderful addition to any family that enjoys an outdoor adventure. Because of the sofa sleeper, booth dinette, and two queen tent beds, you won't have to worry about where you will lay your head each night while traveling in this trailer since it can comfortably sleep seven adults. You also won't have to worry about where you will store all of those leftovers from dinner because this trailer includes an 8 cubic foot refrigerator, and the tile-look flooring throughout this trailer is what gives it that home-like feeling.
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.
The Perfect RV . . .THE PERFECT RV!
Out of nowhere, while we are on a trip, I get an unsolicited email from Cory from Van City RV in Kalispell, just to say hello, and ask if we may still be interested in an Leisure Van RV. We had stopped by there a few years ago. Now he was a young and new salesperson and apparently making cold calls from the list of those who had stopped by. He hit the jackpot with us.

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.
