Lazy Days RV SuperCenter, Seffner, Fla., has agreed to include in its inventory the Carri-Go brand of Class C motorhome built by Carriage Inc. of Millersburg, Ind.
Lazy Days, located east of Tampa, is generally believed to be the world’s largest single-location RV dealership.
Carriage, a 32-year-old company, built only travel trailers and fifth-wheels before it began production of Carri-Go Class C’s last March.
Currently, Lazy Days is the biggest seller of Carriage’s towable RVs, said Peter Recchio, director of sales and marketing at Carriage.
“We at Carriage have had a mutually beneficial relationship with Lazy Days for nearly two decades and with the addition of Carri-Go, Lazy Days has taken our relationship one step higher,” Recchio said.
“Carri-Go is a blend of Class B (motorhome) fuel efficiency and handling with Class C livability and comfort,” said Ken Scolaro, general sales manager at Lazy Days.
Carri-Go units are 23 feet long, can be built on Ford or Chevrolet chassis and feature exterior filon fiberglass bonded to an aluminum framework. The base MSRP starts at $55,097, according to the Carriage Web site.
A Carri-Go unit can sleep up to four people.
Standard features on the Carri-Go include solid wood cabinet doors, a double-door refrigerator, cooktop, convection microwave oven, day/night shades in the sleeping and dining areas and miniblinds in the bath and kitchen.
Options include rooftop air conditioner, four kW/h generator, 19-inch TV and an awning.
Carriage executives believe the Carri-Go appeals to Baby Boom generation first-time RV buyers who are accustomed to buying automobiles in the Carri-Go’s price range.
