Welcome to the dark side!
I have to agree with you. The fit and finish does seem to be a bit nicer in the Starcrafts. There seem to be more extras, too.

It looks like my 2008 Starcraft 14RT series got replaced by the FLAGSTAFF and ROCKWOOD Extreme series... 2015-2016 models

They still don't have the beefed up 6-inch by 2-inch frame my STARCRAFT has under it... They do include however high walls and extended kitchen fold out

Nice to see some different interior layout. Since JAYCO dropped the real heavy duty OFF-ROAD series I figured I had one of the last still on the road haha...

Mine weighs in around 4200 lbs loaded up for trips...

I feel the same that the Starcraft is better. We have had both our Jayco was full of problems and the Starcraft has been great.

Starcraft vs Jayco

We looked at most of the brands out there before buying our new 2015 Starcraft Travel Star 276RKS. I build furniture for a living and the fit and finish of the cabinets sold me over the equivalent Jayco Eagle.

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I purchased a used 2005 Starcraft Starlight hybrid SSO21. The front bunk seal that stretches across the hinge was badly damaged and the previous owner had rigged up a fix. I want to completely replace whats there but need a guidance picture(s) of how this is supposed to look. Is there anyone on these forums that could provide me with pics of their front bunk bed with the bottom seal and side seals? Or can anyone point my in the right direction?

Greetings, and congrats on your new camper!

A google search netted me quite a few images of your camper that may have some ideas. Often parts can be found through your local dealer that may have a strong relationship with Jayco/Starcraft. This does seem like something I would take model numbers to your dealer with. That seal seems like a parts guy could really ding into. Perhaps an email to starcraft could get you a schematic or list of items you may need.

Have you tried contacting Starcraft? You can contact them through their website...starcraftrv.com. Have your trailer serial # handy when you contact them.

Ran across this forum and thought I'd join in. Currently own a 2014 Starcraft Launch 17SB hybrid. Anyone else with hybrids in here?

Ownership update

We've now owned our Autumn Ridge 329BHU for 1 1/2 years and have pulled it around our great country a little over 9,600 miles. I'm very happy to report that we've had no major problems at all. In fact, I think the only problems were:
1) the main slide was a little out of adjustment when we got home after our first trip. Repairs made under warranty and no more issues with it.
2) the indicator lights on the grey water tank never show that the tank is empty. The 1/3 full light and the empty light come on together even when the tank is empty and dry. Dealer has replaced the sensor and worked on it 5 times to no avail. Not a big deal, just frustrating.
3) the fresh water tank has filled when connected to campground water supply on two occasions. I always use a pressure regulator, and have finally figured out that the pump is allowing water to back flow through itself. I purchased a check valve to be installed on the water line - haven't installed it yet.

We used to own a Jayco Swift 264BH and I think the quality of our Starcraft is much higher than our Jayco. We had several issues with the Jayco and finally sold it and got our Autumn Ridge. I'm not knocking Jayco, just saying that we are very happy with our new TT. Maybe we just got lucky!
Happy camping!
