Almost none other than the name. Jayco purchased the RV division of Starcraft in 1991.

Regardless, you will find many RV manufacturers use the same floor plans; putting in very slight variations with regards to trim and amenities. Otherwise, the refrigerators, toilets, showers, stoves, ovens, roof vents, A/C units, water heaters, furnaces, etc. are all made by only a few companies. So every RV manufacturer has to go to the same pools to get these items.

In the past the differences in the Jflight and Autumn Ridge have been minor, usually graphics, interior decor color choices and minor variations in standards and options.

Having owned both a Jayco and now a Starcraft, I would say the fit & finish in the Starcraft is better. I'm not knocking Jayco by any means, just stating my experience.

Being an ultra lite I would say probably similar to Whitehawk. According to Starcraft website "Climate Package: Insulated, heated and enclosed underbelly; foil insulation in roof"

The Launch would be the Whitehawk or Jayfeather equivalent. The Autumn Ridge line is the Jayflight equivalent.

I was just looking at the Jayco website and the starcraft 27bhu is close in weight but it is 155 lbs heavier then the 28dbsh whitehawk and when compared to the jayfeather it is over 1300 lbs heavier , It does have the same interior headroom as the jayfeather at 78 inches where as the whitehawk has 81 inches , So I'm thinking it's has the jayfeather dimensions but the whitehawk build , It also has the Big 30 x 36 shower like the jayflight 28bhbe , so it seem's it's a mix of all
