Opinions Needed

I'm in process of searching out a new 5th wheel. I've read some good things on this forum about Carriage. I'm wondering what people think about the Landmark's by Heartland? Right now i'm interested in The Cameo 36FWS, and the Landmark LM Augusta. The Landmarks are just a bit cheaper than the Cameo's. To me it seems that the Landmarks are few years ahead of staying up with decor. The Cameo's seem to have a simular look for the past few years.
Any thoughts on one vs. the other; Construction, long term problems, how well they function?

Thanks in Advance.

Take a look at a HitchHiker if you want a quality trailer from a reputable manufacturer. I've owned four of them. Obviously I'm biased, but check 'em out for yourself.

You are obviously bias against THOR. I do not agree with you, I have owned 3 THOR 's and they have backed them up 100%. THOR owns alot of companies and if you had a problem with one of them then you should address it with them and or the actual dealer you bought your trailer from. It appears that you would be a dissatisfied customer no matter what you get.

Although I don't have a Landmark, I have a Big Horn by Heartland which has caused me extensive problems during the past 30 months.
Based on what I've heard about Cameos I would say that these are a far better buy than a product from Heartland.

Easy fellow... it sounds like you don't want others to express an opinion that differs from yours

Hey Vinylracer,

If you're looking at 2010 Cameo's against 2010 or 2011 Augusta's, the Augusta's should be much more than the Cameo's. We looked at many and though Heartland was going to be the one until we saw the Carriage line. And again thought the Cameo was it until we took a second look at the Carri-lite. We're here now on our shakedown boondocking weekend in So. Cal. and are glad we got the Carri-lite.

We think you get much more for your money in the Carri-lite than the Landmark also..

Getting alot of "WOW's!!!" from our friends too!!!!!

Regards, Hamshog

I owned a Carriage Cameo 34CK3 for 4 years and never had a problem. Heartland uses Lippert frames which I am not a fan of. I looked at a Big Horn several years ago and found the Carriage to be built better.
