Thanks for the Starcraft site on this forum. I've been lurking for about 1/2 year in the Jayco section and have learned a great deal! This is a great and helpful forum.
The wife and I bought a new Starcraft 235fb about a year ago at a home & RV show. We really like the travel trailer, and have enjoyed our trips with it. We pull with a 2002 Dodge quad cab 2500 8-cylinder.
For any of you getting the 235 fb with the large water capacity (gotta love that!)...check out the Jayco portion of the forum under "Water tank pukes". There is apparently a design flaw which causes these to lose lots of water through siphoning action through the overflow tubes and while sloshing in travel. An easy and quick fix is explained in that section (and lots of spouses have been incorrectly being blamed for using too much water...so you'd better be ready to apologize to her!)
I have a 1972 Starcraft Tent Trailer. Does that count? I have to admit that it hasnt been used in the last 7 or so yrs ago except when we had a week end get together at the lake a couple yeaers ago and needed the extra bed space for the teens to crash in.
Just took delivery of a 2013 Starcraft Travel Star Galaxy 309BHS. We saw it at the big rv show in Tampa this January. It is an upgrade for as from a 2005 Prowler Lynx 25 footer. Wow what a palace on wheels this thing is! We are going to test it out this weekend at a Hillsborough county park at Lithia Springs which is about 3 miles from home. Then the following week we are off to Gatlinburg, TN. for a real camping trip.
Welcome to the board everyone. Hey Loukii, we have a 2012 Autumn Ridge 309BHL and LOVE IT!!! We have taken several trips so far and it's a huge upgrade from the Surveyor SP260. Much better quality with the Starcraft.

Just fouind out that Starcraft makes a 3 slide (bed slide) trailer Autumn Ridge 346RESA. Jayco stopped making their Eagle 330RLTS (3 slide) and we are ready for a 3 slide unit. Will sell our 2007 322FKS Eagle and possibly buy the Starcraft.
Anyone own a 346RESA and want to comment about it???
