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.
