We are looking at the new Carrilite 35-36' RV's and would like some feedback on Quality, Service, Towability etc. from owners. We have the Consumer Guedes, but would like to hear from other forum members.

You will look long and hard to find a nicer unit. Excellent quality and the layouts and finish on the new ones are gorgeous. Makes me jealous.

Look at Carriage_RV@yahoogroups.com You may be surprised to read about quite a few quality issues w/newer units. Also, problems w/non opening windows in bedroom slide and day/night shades.......

We second FiverBob's opinion. Our '05 Carri-Lite has had no problems that I could not correct myself. The Carriage owners that I personally know,(about 40) are all very happy with their rigs.

The most disappointing thing about the current Carriage Cameo line are the puny water tanks. 50 gal black, 50 gallons grey, and 55 gallons fresh. Not nearly enough, in my book!

NuWa, by comparison, in their Champagne line, offers 100 gallons of fresh, 100 gallons of grey, and 50 gallons of black. Much better!

Teton and New Horizons both have better tank sizes too. Gonna check Newmar next.
