We just sold our Carriage Cameo with the intent of downsizing a bit. Anyone know which FWs would be a mid profile besides Cougar?

I've found that unless you are changing your style of camping, such as from private RV parks to USFS-BLM CGs, downsizing isn't really necessary from a towing and parking standpoint. Now if you just wanted a new RV...I understand.

Just about every 5th wheel manufacturer does mid profile units.

Those that market for high end don't usually do low profile and those that market to the low end often don't do full height. Those in the middle often to them all.

I agree that most all the manufacturers except the high end ones have at least one, and probably more, mid profile 5ers brands. Check each manufacturer web site and look at the different brands for one that looks like something you might want and might be available locally to go visit in person.

Appreciate all the feedback and suggestions! We don't expect to find the same quality we had with the Cameo but we only used it for vacations and never spent as much time in at as we had originally planned. We definitely don't want something that's going to fall apart going down the road though so we'll compare quality before making a selection. We're thinking about going to a TT but want to check the mid profile units out first. If anyone comes up with more possibilities I'll definitely check them out. I have a follow up question about east coast vs west coast constructed units but I guess I should do a new post on that issue. Thanks again for your input!
