lunatech,

Basically it's just me and wife, occasionally a couple of grandchildren.

It will probably suit our needs fine, if not, maybe the grandkids will have to do the "tent thing" lol.

Airborne8,

That's a real nice trailer you're getting, perfect for you and the DW and visiting grandkids!

You will be impressed with the quality of Jayco/Starcraft. You definately made a good choice!

What are you towing with?

I "almost" grew up camping. Started out with a 1969 12' Coachmen Pickup Camper. Now that was fun. Putting 4 kids into one of these, best part about this camper was the LP gas lamp.... From there went to an UNREAL 1986 Terry 365 5th.

Moved away from home (some would say took too long, but I had a 5th so hey...) get a family of my own. In 2003 got the camping bug that I had as a youngster and picked up an Antigua 195CK. With a family of 3 young kids, we would take our Antigua anywhere, pulled by our Ford Windstar. We bought an enclosed screen room and that camper was the best. I miss the Antigua, but love the Jayco SuperLite!

That is a good looking trailer and will be perfect for you and the DW and the occasional grandchildren. Have fun and enjoy. I don't think you will be disappointed in you decision. We started packing ours last night and are really, really impressed with the overall quality of build and fit and finish.

Right now this is what we have. Crabman was nice enough to give us this sticky to gauge the interest in Starcraft's. If there is enough he hopefully will give us our own forum.

Ask away. If I can help ya I will. This is our second year with a TT so I somewhat new myself but I research everything to death so I might be able to help.

Aside from decals is there anything specific about a Starcraft? Just my opinion, but if you have a Starcraft 5th wheel question / issue, post in the 5th wheel section, same with hybrid's, TT's and what not, it certainly increases the visibility of your question / concern.

Maybe put a sticky at the top of each forum with a Starcraft to Jayco cross reference chart.
Example:

Lexion S-Lite to Superlite chart

295RKSA - 29.5RKS
295RL - 28.5RLS
315BSSA - 31.5RLDS
319BSLT - 30.5BHLT
319FBH - 31.5FBHS

One of the main differences I see between Starcraft and Jayco is the one and two year warranty, respectively. I have to wonder what the reasoning is behind that considering they are almost clones with only different graphics, interior decor and a few other minor differences. As said for now just post any technical or trailer specific questions in the proper forum regardless of brand.
