2007 Cameo 5th Wheel (Newbies to Full Timing)

Hello! So excited to join the iRV2 community! My husband and I are planning on becoming full time RVers in the next few weeks. We have found a 2007 Cameo Fifth Wheel, 33', being sold locally. It seems to be in great condition. Everything I have been able to find on the Cameos show them to be very well built. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this model RV... pros, cons, etc. The tires are about 8 months old, the current owner had it checked out recently and only minor repairs were required. It is generator ready and other than soiled carpet and a torn chair, it seems very livable. Is there anything else we should be looking for? Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks for letting us join your community!

The Carriage products are very good 5th wheels. The Carri-Lite was their top 5th wheel followed by the Cameo a slightly less expensive unit. I do not know the differences but do know the Cameo is a nice unit.

We owned a 2008 Cameo for many years...outstanding unit and built very well. With any used unit at this age, it is wise to thoroughly inspect for any signs of water damage as no seal lasts forever. If you can have it inspected locally at a reputable dealer, I would do so. If it gets a good pass, you should be fine.

We owned a trailer for 15 years and no worn out furniture or carpets. Check it really well they surely did not take care of their possession well and could show somewhere else.
Remember you will add more wear full time.
Full timed 100% in our 2009 and no wear yet.
Look for a clean unit from part timers.
