Had a Starcraft Travelstar 17' since '03. That was fine with 2 children, now we have 6 it wasn't going cut it!
Almost bought a 2010 31QBH (think that was the model) in 2009, but decided to wait. The Starcraft has sat in the driveway for a few years now and we've missed the camping
So last weekend we took the cover off her and washed/polished/cleaned inside and out and on Monday she was on Craigslist. Tuesday night she was towed away for a full price, cash in hand deal!! Now with my birthday fast approaching, the kids sad to see her leave, everyone wanting to know if she'll be replaced, and a down payment burning a hole in my pocket
we decided a replacement was indeed what we should do. I'd been looking for a couple of weeks at the new Reserve Package 29SS and collecting quotes. Thursday it was ordered, and tomorrow we pick it up!! Printing out a PDI and going through some lists, it's going to be a long morning. But then we'll take it over to a local campground and spend the remainder of Saturday, Sunday and part of Monday testing it out and breaking it in (figuratively
speaking that is!!). And I'm supposed to get some sleep tonight??!!!
Going to be towing with a '02 Suburban 1500 4x4 with a Husky Centerline hitch and existing Prodigy b.c. It's pushing it, but I plan on leaving lots of stopping distance, and we'll upgrade the TV eventually to a 3500 ext passenger - maybe I'll find a diesel one!
Anyway, I've lurked these forums for some time and wanted to say thanks to all who post with useful help, tips and tricks; as well as the humour!
Look forward to many happy memories in our future and hopefully we'll even get to see some of you around!
