Carriage Carri-Lite


A Carri-Lite Resort Vehicle by Carriage is your premium brand in coaches today. World travelers, Snowbirds, or any educated participant in this lifestyle knows that there are a lot of so-called “luxury, full-time” fifth wheels on the market. What Carriage owners know and have come to love is the fact that Carriage products are superior in every way. Elegant rooms, quality design and build, amenities at your fingertips. All by design.You are now enjoying the new world of resort vehicles. It’s a world we’ve been comfortable with for over 40 years. SQUARE PLATFORM CHASSISOur “in-house advantage” begins right away with our own Square Platform Chassis only found on Carriage Products. Because these frames are engineered, constructed and welded in our own plant, we are able to deliver a superior frame design.

We use a 2″ x 6″, double stacked, box steel tube for a 12″ box frame. In non-engineering terms, its two 6″ tubes stacked on top of each other! We stack two tubes to bring twice the horizontal support as an I-Beam. Same for vertical support…twice the protection. As an RV travels and hits the road, side to side movement is what causes most of the damage. It’s a rolling earthquake inside. With a box tube chassis, any chance of twisting the chassis is eliminated! And, with two horizontal supports and 20% taller, we’ve eliminated any chance of frame bending or collapse due to vertical stress!

The strength of our frames from the box alone offers superior strength, but Carri-Lite’s dual floor system is what truly puts our chassis construction over the top. This sub-floor/main floor setup allows Carriage to mount our slide outs above our box tube frame. Top mounting keep us from having to torch-cut holes through our steel in order to run slide-outs. Every other brand does this and weakens the steel by 40%. On a quad-slide unit, the competition must cut 8 holes into their frames for slide arms!


Carri-Lite fifth wheels offer many additional luxuries and qualities not found on other units within the market today. The padded vinyl ceiling is one such detail. Located throughout your Carri-Lite coach, this standard feature adds that “deluxe” touch of class – literally. The soft-touch ceiling adds an elegant look to the coach. It also helps insulate and sound-proof your fifth wheel from temperature changes or those occasional outside noises. See the Carriage website for more details and features.


Top brand Sony® 37″ LCD TV, along with other higher-end components, are standard equipment features on a Carri-Lite coach. This brand name, flat screen TV is only part of the story. You’ll enjoy an AM/FM/CD/DVD 5.1 surround Sony® Home Theatre system with an impressive subwoofer as well. Other fifth wheel manufacturers on the market offer stereo systems and TVs, but few will upgrade you to Sony® picture quality and sound at the base price. You get so much more in a Carri-Lite.


Many use ball-bearing drawer guides today. What most do not use is 14 bearing guides (vs. 10) with a positive catch so they stay in place when traveling. The reason for the catch? Our drawers pull so smooth they need help staying in place when in transit. And the food pantry includes real drawers, not sub-standard white wire cages. Talk to a real coach user and they will explain how bad the cages work. We put 5-6 real, full extension drawers in our pantry for a truly residential, usable and functional pantry.


Available in Glazed Brook Cherry or Arlington Cherry finishes, your dinette table and chairs are crafted for quality and designed for comfort. You will not find any “spring loaded” mechanism for the table either, like lesser brands. True Amish craftsman build each table with a self-storing leaf underneath. Real quality means everything is built and designed to operate correctly. Other kitchen area features include an undermounted stainless steel sink with covers, full height cabinets and radiused solid surface countertops.


Ladies and gentlemen, you’re going to love the Carri-Lite’s galley! Notice the 12 cubic foot Norcold® double-door refrigerator, solid surface Corian® countertops, a standard convection microwave oven (vented to the outside) and two-burner flush-mounted cooktop. Brand name dishwasher is optional (not available on competitor’s models). A ceiling fan in the kitchen, extra-deep storage drawers and cabinets, double bowl stainless steel sink with covers, and lift off faucet spray head are all standard as well.
