Am I to be banished as a traitor?

After much consideration the DW and I decided to look into trading our Swift SLX 184BH for a Starcraft Launch 19BHS. Don't get me wrong we have loved our Jayco and really have no complaints. Its been very good to us. However, our last trip we were talking about the little things that we liked and disliked about it. The biggest thing for us was that we don't like losing the dinette each night for a bed and the DW wanted more room for toiletries in the bathroom. Its just enough of a nuisance that we decided to see what else was out there. We really like the small trailers and didn't want to turn this into a new TV purchase. We spent the winter looking at several different models and floorplans. The only floorplan that we have both liked so far is the Starcraft Launch 19BHS. We also like some of the little conveniences it has (power awning, rooftop AC, larger black/grey tanks and frameless tinted windows). We plan on visiting the local dealer this week to see what kind of deal they are willing to make. At least Starcraft is part of the overall parent company with Jayco and now carries the same warranty. We'll see what happens.

Why would you be banished? A camper is a camper. You are always welcome here. You have to do what is best for you.

I think you're right - Jayco is the parent company

Shhh!!!we have to keep trades quite because I still like this forum and like to follow everyone and their ideas, thoughts, and mods......we decided last Oct to let our 2014 Jayco Whitehawk 30DSQB bunkhouse go because it just didn't fit the DW and my needs....wanted a 5th wheel...wanted an Eagle!!!!...just too much weight.....I had already owned three TV during the year.....couldn't trade trucks again.....so, we traded for a 2014 Forest River Cedar Creek Silverback 33RL with our dealer who handled both Jayco and Forest River products.....nothing wrong with the Whitehawk, just didn't fit.....btw, am I allowed to change my signature to show the trade????LOL!!
