This dealer web site has some photos. Looks good, but as you looks at these photos inside and out you can see that its no near the quality of the old Carriage line.

Sorry the dealer must have changed his web site. The site I had before had photos of the Carriage. The quality of the interior was nothing like that of a Cameo, not a bad looking rig, but just not the quality of a Carriage, I would rate it lower than that of a Redwood.

I was just on the LS website and saw the floor plan for the 3905SH. Interesting design, gives us the ability to bring our HD and still have great living space.

I'm going to try and see one in person if there are any in inventory.

We are still tooling around in our original 1996 Carriage Conestoga. Coming up on 19 years of fulltiming.
But I do agree. You buy the name, you get to put it on whatever you want. People need to look at the quality of any type of RV they purchase and I would think know the story being Carriage's demise. Hugs, Di

If I buy another one, it will probably be a DRV. Do like the Lifestyle and would look at them. Good bang for the buck. KB

Ya, its too bad that not only did they mismanage the company, they mismanaged the name and sold you dinosaurs out to the highest bidder.

I don't blame Crossroads a bit for exploiting the name, they paid for it after all. I wish them the best of luck.

I looked at a "New" Cameo and I can say without question.....I was under impressed. Lots of surface glitz and no bones.

You need to look at Grand Design and VanLeigh. Or keep your older Montana.

I noticed where the names of Carriage and Cameo are coming back. As a owner of a 2011 Cameo this made me a little sick. Knowing they could probably never get the quality in their units as the original Carriage. The articles don't say but probably a Lippert frame. My goal will be a new Lifestyle, using the old Carriage quality.



It would be like me, trying to pass myself off as Christ......not, remotely close. The same can be said of this, attempt at living off of a quality name!
