Topeka, Ind.-based CrossRoads RV, a manufacturer of travel trailers and fifth-wheels, presented the reintroduced Carriage and Cameo fifth-wheels as well as the Rushmore line at the Florida RV SuperShow last month.
“It was nothing short of impressive to see how well retail customers received these brands in their first major outing,” said Rudy Boals, CrossRoads national sales manager, in a press release. “We were thrilled with the feedback and support from the past, present and prospective customers at the show. Whenever you can go into a show like that with new product and be a top seller it really says something.”
CrossRoads and sister company Redwood RV acquired the Cameo and Carriage brands during a Feb. 21 court-ordered liquidation of Carriage Inc.’s assets. Carriage, a longtime luxury fifth-wheel builder based in Millersburg, Ind., was forced to close its doors in late 2011 as a result of the Great Recession.
The Cameo will reach out to a rapidly growing market segment in the industry – the introduction into luxury fifth-wheel camping. Cameo products will range from smaller units to large bunkhouses with outside kitchens as well as extended stay floorplans with front and rear living rooms.
“With an emphasis on quality, uniqueness and convenience, we have carefully priced the Cameo, to enable our dealers to bring as many customers to the family as possible,” stated Boals.
The Carriage and Rushmore cater to the needs of high-end residential-style living, with innovative and original master suite designs, complete with a one- and two-year residential warranties. The Rushmore offers an industry exclusive front windshield that opens up the floorplan.
The Carriage with full-body paint, 55-inch TV’s and “Class A” features will be “the pinnacle on a customer’s fifth-wheel journey,” according to the company.
