New (to me) Fiver

Granted a few yrs old but was in mint condition, hardly used. I'm hardly a full timer but have a 10 week sabbatical next year so plan to travel in style.

Very nice set up. The Carriage Cameo is a well built fiver, I have always liked them. A great package to make some memories with. Safe travels and enjoy.

We are on our second Cameo. Great units and such a sad thing they went out of business. The 35SB3 is a great floor plan.

Have you found the carriage/Lifestyle forum:
http://www.carriage-lifestyle-owners.com/portal.php

Also a good Yahoo group for carriage trailers.

One thing to look at. Do you have the 16" wheels with the load range G tires as a minimum. When we had the 2008 35SB3, I went to 17.5" and H rated tires. The E rated tires are a bit on the skimpy side.

Currently still stock wheels & crappy "E" tires which are 5+ yrs old. The tires are still in great shape all around including tread wear. I do plan on replacing with "G" rated early next year, probably go with Goodyear G614. Not sure I want foot the bill for new larger wheels plus "H" rated tires. I need the extra funds for fuel :-).

Yes, thank you I did already come across the Carriage & Yahoo group forum.
