Nearly nine million households in America own an RV or pop-up, and there are countless accessories that can turn an ordinary camper into something extraordinary.
One such accessory that was showcased by Palomino in their 2014 RV announcements was the remote pop-up roof, which they featured as “fob-u-lous”, according to a news release from Chirch Global Manufacturing.
This new pop-up roof system was designed by Rieco-Titan Products, Inc.
By using their design and engineering expertise, Palomino now has a push button, fully-automatic, electric lift. In thirty seconds the roof is up or down.
“Our new Rieco-Titan roof lift system is very impressive. We approached Bob McCarthy, President of Rieco-Titan, about ten months ago about our desire to take Palomino soft-side truck campers to the next level,” said Pat Hines, director of truck camper marketing at Palomino RV.
“We feature Rieco-Titan camper jacks on all of our products and have had nothing but good experiences with them.”
“Another neat feature of this roof system is the optional key fob wireless remote. Now you can stand back, push a button on the key fob and, thirty seconds later, your camper roof is popped-up or down, added Hines.
“The key fob is the same size as an automotive key fob. You can put it on the same key chain with your camper and truck keys.”
A truck camper industry first, this new pop-up roof lift system is standard on all 2014 Palomino soft side truck campers. The key fob is an option.
In the event that you lose the key fob or the battery is dead, there is a permanent switch inside the door to raise and lower the roof. There is also direct access to the battery from the power port on the side of the unit.
According to Hines, there a manual override in case the electric lift fails.
“The campers come with a flex screw that allows you to lower the roof without electric power. From there you can get the lift system repaired.”
Palomino and Rieco-Titan recently had their new Remote Controlled Pop-Up Roof featured in Truck Camper Magazine, as it showed a variety of new announcements for Palomino’s 2014 RVs.

Palomino Camping Trailer construction began in 1968 with the dream of Vern Landey, a tent trailer distributor who felt he could design and produce better quality units than were currently being offered to the public. Landey began designing and producing Palomino pop-up tent trailers in a small building in Savage, Minnesota.
As demand for the Palomino grew, Landey felt it would benefit his company, Vanguard Industries, to relocate to Colon, Michigan in 1972.
In 2002 Vanguard was purchased by Forest River, Inc. Two new 100,000 square foot facilities were built in Goshen, Indiana to house the production lines for two new towable lines of travel trailers and fifth wheels, Puma by Palomino and Sabre by Palomino.
Palomino RV operates as a separate division of Forest River Inc, a Berkshire Hathaway company, and has grown from its humble beginnings in Minnesota to a major RV manufacturer with over 300 dealers in North America representing, selling, and servicing the Palomino Brand.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”
