UPDATE: We went to the dealer to work something out on the Starcraft. While there my DW decided to browse the lot again and fell in love with a 2015 Jayco Jay Feather 213 Front Bunks Rear King Bed Slideout. Don't know how we missed it during our winter search. Its very similar to the Starcraft 19BHS but better equipped and a tad roomier. She says its the 19BHS on steroids. Sooo, we are now waiting for the dealer to give us the numbers on the Jayco so we can compare the two and make a decision.

I don't see a reason for banishment. Truth be told when you look at the big picture, there are only "so many" different floor plans out there. Regardless of the manufacturer, you will find the same floor plan with only minor differences. When it comes down to it, the amenities and accessories are all made by the same people, (Thetford, Dometic, Atwood, Coleman etc.).
With that said, you go with whatever fits your life and your family. Stay here and enjoy the company and ideas and keep having fun. (Though, if you end up with a brand other than Jayco, some of us might not be able to resist and occasional pun/jab.... lol).

We've had a StarCraft 235fb since 2011 and have found and provided lots of info on this forum. The 235 fb is an exact twin to the Jayco 23fb and for a time the two were even made on the same assembly line when StarCraft shut down its line during the recession.

So you're no Benedict Arnold.
You just quit dating your first love and took up with her sister!

Often happens here, but OK. Thinking of a Starcraft ourselves.
