I have a 2008 Cameo and I am interested in installing a rear receiver for a carrier. If anyone has a factory or aftermarket receiver installed on their Cameo I would love some pics showing the install.

We had a custom hitch welded to the frame on our 2008 Cameo. The shop was a custom weld shop that also installed tow brackets and such to cars.

With a good welder, he can determine what he needs to connect on the trailer for a good solid connection.

We don't have the trailer any longer, so photos. You might check on the Carriage/Lifestyle forum on the internet.

We have a factory install on my 2012 Cameo. Unfortunately, I can't send a pic until we go back to NC in September. If you don't get anything by then and still want a picture, send me a private message on this site.

Tom ,
Do not put a carrier on a Cameo. We put on a hitch for our boat we bought in Dryden,On. with a tongue wt. of 75kilos, had severe frame troubles and moreryde equalizers failure.
Carriage advertised 3/16 2x6 frame tubing, but over axle its 1/8 The 7k dexter axles are at limit, as are the 12" by 2" electric brakes.

Not everyone is maxed on CCC and suspension. My Morryde lre rubber is in good shape after 12+ years. I have 3k CCC and I don't even use half of it. Use good judgement! Craig
