Main Feature: The Palomino Landing Pad Bumper
It’s no surprise that when it comes to security, versatility and innovation, Torklift International has got you covered and the Palomino Landing Pad bumper is no exception.
By working with Palomino engineers and designers, Torklift took the truck camper bumper bull by the proverbial horns in 2013 and never let go. The Landing Pad bumper not only flaunts its versatility—being compatible with any year of the following Palomino truck camper models: 2902, 2910 and 2911—but also the quality and dependability you’d expect from being manufactured out of an aircraft grade aluminum body with stainless steel latches and fasteners.
As Palomino implied in our story featured by Truck Camper Magazine, the Landing Pad bumper is the aftermarket truck camper bumper equivalent to the Sistine Chapel ceiling – a Michaelangelo masterpiece. Here is a rundown of its key features:
• Two-door inner cabinetry for nearly 3.5 cubic feet of lockable extra storage
o Despite the appearance of separate storage compartments, the Landing Pad bumper has a depth of 18.5 inches of “thru storage” so you can stow anything from lawn chairs to fishing poles securely
• LED lights
o Connect to the brake, reverse and tail lights for excellent rear visibility
• Glow-in-the-dark swing step
o Truck camper entry steps that can be attached to the front or side of the Palomino Landing Pad bumper and combined with a handrail for extra stability
• Allows for easy towing with Torklift SuperTruss Extension
o Sold separately
• Quick, fast and easy installation
o Contact your local Palomino dealer or Forest River Inc. for pricing
