I own (the other outstanding unit) a custom build Carriage.

When we found it the Excel didn't have a chance (even though the Carriage was a 10 year old unit then). I knew many folks at Carriage, including their techs and the VP of Engineering, very capable people. I was very saddened when I learned that the company did not survive financially. Then I learned in an RV Industry publication that the ex VP and the key personnel from Carriage migrated to another company and started a high end fifth line under the Lifestyle banner (the Carriage name was sold to someone else). I spoke with the ex-VP at the new company and apparently he has the "power and influence" to impose the quality standards that he was responsible for at Carriage and that's rare in this industry.
Just sayin'.
