All-New Starcraft Fiver Now Available at Dealers

The all-new 2012 Starcraft Travel Star half-ton fifth wheel trailer, which debuted at the 49th annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky, is now available in dealer showrooms throughout North America.

The affordably priced Travel Star fifth wheel is currently offered in two flexible floor plans with two more to be introduced during the next few months, according to a news release.

This all-new fifth wheel is loaded with all the necessary camping features, constructed with vacuum-bonded laminated sidewalls, and insulated by Starcraft’s standard Arctic Package, said Brent Froman, National Sales Manager for Starcraft Inc., subsidiary of Jayco Inc.

All of this makes this fifth wheel a great addition to the market and Starcraft’s full towable line up, he explained.

“We received valuable feedback on the Travel Star fifth-wheel at Louisville and we’re excited it’s now available at our dealerships for our customers.” said Froman. “This half-ton towable fifth-wheel reaches a new market for Starcraft and fills a gap that was missing in our full towable line up.”

Inside, the fifth wheel includes in-floor ducted heat with thermostat controlled heating, cable and satellite TV prep, decorative lighting package, multi-media sound system with AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3 input jack and a 60-inch by 80-inch upgraded evergreen mattress.

The kitchen comes complete with a three-burner range, six cubic-foot flush-mount refrigerator, deep storage drawers under-booth dinette seats, extra large picture window at dinette, double drawer with integrated silverware dividers, oversized 21-inch oven, residential faucet with pull-out sprayer and sink covers and a storable cutting board.

It also includes a 10-gallon gas/electric DSI water heater, radial tires with chrome hub caps, dual 20-pound LP bottles, and two rear stabilizer jacks.

The 278BHS floorplan features an outdoor kitchen with sink, two-burner stove and TV prep.

Worth Pondering…
The pleasure in traveling consists of the obstacles, the fatigue, and even the danger. What charm can anyone find in an excursion when he is always sure of reaching his destination, of having horses ready waiting for him, a soft bed, an excellent supper, and all the eases and comfort he can enjoy in his own home! One of the great misfortunes of modern life is the want of any sudden surprise, and the absence of all adventure. Everything is so well arranged.
—Theophile Gautier
