Designed to keep RVing simple and affordable for families on the go, Starcraft’s lightweight Launch can be towed by properly equipped minivans and small SUVs. Five floorplans weighing less than 4,000 pounds include three hard-sided travel trailers — one with a slideout — and two hybrids with tent expandables.
Sleeping capacity ranges from three in the 20-foot 6-inch front-full-bed 17FB and the double-bunk 18BH to up to seven in the larger Launches. Choose between floorplans with bunks that bookend the living space and either a 60×70-inch or 64×74-inch bed. Or opt for the 17SB with a queen bed in the streetside slideout.
Launch models have glazed hardwood cabinet doors, a 4-cubic-foot Norcold refrigerator, a two-burner range, a 54-inch booth dinette that folds into a bed to sleep one or two, an 18,000-Btu furnace, an 8,000-Btu air conditioner and a 12-volt CD/DVD stereo with USB input. All floorplans have a 20-gallon freshwater tank, and 15-gallon gray- and 9-gallon black-water capacities, with the exception of the family-oriented 19BHS, which has a 26-gallon freshwater tank and 30-gallon gray- and black-water tanks.
An optional Extreme Package for $900 ($1,312 on the 19BHS) includes 5 inches of extra ground clearance and an enclosed underbelly, 15-inch off-road mud tires, Flexfoil insulation in the floor and roof, a front black diamond plate, a double-entry step and an Extreme logo.
Base MSRPs for the entry-level trailers range from $14,363 to $18,531. Included in the price is a one-year Starcraft Roadside Assistance program that provides 24-hour dispatch and unlimited distance towing to the nearest network service facility.
