Topeka, Indiana-based CrossRoads RV announced it will resurrect the Carriage and Cameo fifth-wheel brands during this year’s Elkhart County RV Open House, introducing the iconic lines as part of parent Thor Industries Inc.’s display at the RV/MH Hall of Fame.
CrossRoads and sister company Redwood RV acquired the Carriage and Cameo brands during a February 21 court-ordered liquidation of Carriage Inc.’s assets.
Carriage, a longtime luxury fifth-wheel builder based in Millersburg, Indiana, was forced to close its doors in late 2011 as a result of the recession.
The Cameo brand will target both weekend travelers and extended-stay snowbirds with a lineup that will offer a range of floor plans in a variety of lengths, according to a company news release.
CrossRoads said the Carriage brand will provide high-end, residential style of living as each floor plan has been carefully designed and specifically created to ensure a permanent way of living anywhere you choose.
The upscale brand will feature master suites, full-body paint exteriors, and a full two-year residential warranty.
“The team here at CrossRoads RV is extremely excited to offer these two iconic names back to the marketplace,” stated Product Manager Rudy Boals.
“We are confident that both past and new customers will appreciate the quality, craftsmanship, and design of these fifth wheels.”
Several floor plans of the Carriage and Cameo will be on display at the Elkhart County RV Open House, September 16-18.
