Great looking scenery, I hope that's the view from your house. Camping rig looks great too. I was looking at a bunch of used Trail-Cruisers before buying the 17Z. Congrats on the new camper.

Nice tt. The colors go well with the tv. Is that where you camp or live? Very pretty area. Where all do you plan to camp/travel?

Thanks for the comments. This is the view from the front of our home- we live on a hill which over looks a lake and the farm. Attached another of a portion of the lake, the farm would be to the far right. Autumn in New England should be longer.

So a tradition in photography....the 2011 GMC Sierra Denali and the 2011 StarCraft EXP 237 CKS. With in an hour I added the WDH and the drive is unreal.....smooth and powerful.

Very nice combo and scenery. It still feels like Summer here, muggy and buggy. I`m ready for that crisp Fall air to start.

The last couple of days were muggy here Crabman....attacked by mosquitos last night when I took the dogs out. Crisp air needed here, too!

Very nice . I see the progression of trailers is like motorcycles. You start with a 150cc and in a few years your buying an 1000cc bike .

What are you first impressions of Starcraft quality?

So far, so good. Little things the dealer could have done to clean it when they got it. Not a fan of staples on the rear/top of the fake curtain/shades.....had to re-do several. Some trim loose, easy fix. But overall- the carpet, linoleum, etc all sound and very nice looking and the floor plan is absolutely top notch. . Not a fan of the 20 gal black holding tank. No idea why they did that- but it doesn't effect us.....at least for the next number of years. I think every brand has its problems--------the fight to keep them lighter means less real wood. The doors are wood, but the frames of the cabinets are not. I am a believer that adding wood frames might add another 20 to 30 max- so just do it. They stopped making the 237 CKS which ran 3 years....?. When I talked to StarCraft- they told me that yearly feedback was that it was too "big" and that they wanted to add another fold out tent to make it a three bed. I saw one at the lot this weekend on our last trip to Maine- it is actually very nice....but I still like ours better....don't need the extra bed since we only have one child. I think the new one is 23 feet and is lighter.
