There may be a lot of Starcraft traffic on this site. I think people just assume that everyone here is a Jayco owner because it is a Jayco site. And on what basis is the assumption made that Starcraft owners aren't the forum types?
Consider this: Jayco is the largest selling RV, so there are many more Jayco owners than Starcraft Owners. I'm guessing that Starcraft isn't even anywhere close to the top 10. So there are many more potential Jayco forum members than Starcraft. And all those Jayco owners have lots of experience, have had lots of things go wrong with their RVs, and have figured out lots of mods and solutions to those problems. And since most Starcraft models are similar to Jayco models, those solutions and ideas are almost universally applicable to Starcraft RVs.
Yes, there is a Starcraft topic on this Jayco forum, but the number of threads are limited. And I personally have zero interest in posting a photo of my trailer or at looking at photos of other people's trailers. I am interested in ideas, mods and solutions...and most of those are found in the much more robustly populated Jayco threads.
As someone else said of the Starcraft Forum, there is nothing more frustrating than someone posting a question or problem and looking for solutions, then seeing that many people have viewed the thread and no one has posted even one answer. I can only speak for myself, but I am more than happy that all these great Jayco folks allow the proverbial "red-headed step children" of Starcraft to participate in their forum, where there are such great forum members and so much knowlege they are willing to share.
I agree with every statement you made. That's why I am on this site. I love that Jayco has welcomed its "red-headed stepchild" with open arms.
If you look through any of the forums, you just don't see many Starcraft owners posting. When you do, it is usually the same few. I understand that we are a much smaller group. I guess if you look at it from a sales volume point, not many of the thousands of Jayco owners out there post either.
I am grateful for all of the knowledge and experience shared on this site and other forums. This information has saved me from making mistakes in the first place, given me some great ideas for mods and helped me understand many of the nuances of TT ownership.
Again, I thank all that take the time to help their fellow RVers.
PS - I do enjoy seeing the pictures of my fellow RVers rigs and adventures.
Safe travels to all!
