Carriage was founded in 1968 and they say that from the beginning, the Carriage philosophy has always been "to build a quality unit, not quantity mass-produced units and a continued commitment to that ideal has resulted in tradition of providing beauty, durability, value, and service to our customers. Carriage is located in the heart of Amish country in Millersburg, Indiana, where they say that "old world craftsmanship still lives."

Carriage quotes the price for the Cameo (2008) at between about $50k and $62k "well equipped."

There are 10 floorplans at lengths between 30'11" and 37'7" with between 2 and 4 slide-outs. We feature 4 of these floorplans below - the shortest, longest and 2 in-between models - one new for 2008.

These are really nice layouts, and it's obvious that a lot of attention has gone into detail.

The Cameo F30RLS floorplan with 2 slides is shown below
(Well equipped $51,140)
This is shortest Cameo at 30'11" overall exterior length. This has the popular rear Euro chair arrangement. It may be the shortest, but it's wonderfully arranged to take advantage of the space.

Carriage Cameo F35SB3 (Well equipped $51,140)
This arrangement has a side isle floorplan. The exterior length is 35'11" - 5 feet longer than the model above, with 3 slides and a center entry making a really nice use of the extra space. It has a fully enclosed bathroom. The 2 living area slides make a very spacious arrangement and the kitchen island provides a wonderful kitchen area.
(These floorplans - to maximize the space and make them as easy as possible to look at - are not shown to the same scale of course ..)
