Hi, I am new to the forum. I had also posted this same question on the Starcraft Owner's Forum before I saw that the Jayco forum also has a Starcraft section. So sorry if this is a repeat question for anyone who follows both forums
We are considering 2 different Starcraft travel trailers: a 2015 Starcraft Travel Star 299BHU and 2016 Starcraft Launch Ultra Lite 27BHU. Both are in nice condition and have many similarities.
I noticed that the original MRSP of the 2015 Travel Star was S31,274 and the MSRP of the 2016 Launch was $28,884. The current average retail price of the Travel Star is also higher, by about 9%.
Does anyone have any insight in comparing these 2 units? They both appear to have the same construction components with the Magnum roof system, aluminum frame, and TuffShell laminated walls. Their length and weight are almost identical and feature-wise they are almost exact. So I was surprised to see one valued much higher than the other.
I tried to see how the 2 lines were positioned and marketed by Starcraft. The Launch was marketed as an Ultra-Lite, but the weight and construction type also seem to be ultra light. Was the Travel Star branded as a more premium unit?
Comparisons of the 2 units would be great, but any insight anyone has on either unit would also be helpful. We like them both and both are priced fairly, just trying to get a feel for any advantages or disadvantages of either one.
Thanks in advance!
