Ordered a new not Jayco trailer yesterday!

Ok but it is a Starcraft. After 3 great years using our X23J, we decided it was time to stop tipping out the beds. What "tipped" us over on the decision was the planning of a trip out west this summer which will involve many days in a row of set up and take down. It's not the actual opening and closing up the beds that gets to be a lot of work, but rather a combination of it all. Taking all the bikes off the racks, folding the bike racks, opening the bunks, making the beds, and then doing all the reverse early in the moring. After many months of research, we ordered a 2015 Starcraft Travel Star Galaxy, Black Pearl Edition 299BHU. Very nice looking trailer, can't wait for it to be delivered sometime at the end of June. If you look at the floorplan, It is very similar to the X23J, just no tip-out beds.
