The 2016 Starcraft Launch & Launch Ultra Lite Provide Enjoyable Camping Experience

Topeka, Ind. – As the name implies, the entry-level Starcraft Launch launches customers’ camping experience at an affordable price. Available in two light-weight, fiberglass series—the Launch seven-foot wide models, and the Launch Ultra Lite eight-foot wide models—there’s an option to meet every need. Affordable, family-friendly, and now backed by Starcraft’s two-year limited warranty, the Launch makes enjoying the camping experience a lot easier for more consumers.

The Launch has five floorplans, while the Launch Ultra Lite has eight floorplans, all of which range from 18 to nearly 37 feet in length and boast a 78-inch interior height. Better yet, five out of the 13 remain under 4,000 pounds for easy towing by most minivans and crossovers. The 13 floorplans range in sleeping capacity between three to 10 people depending on the floorplan. New interior décor and Honey-glazed cherry cabinetry make the interiors of the Launch and Launch Ultra Lite inviting.

Built with durable vacuum-bonded aluminum frame construction, the amazingly affordable Launch is also amazingly well constructed. The Launch has an expandable Aqua-Shield Aqualon® sectionalized tent in select models, backed by an industry-best, seven-year tent warranty. Standard construction features include a fully decked roof with 3/8-inch walk on decking, crowned roof trusses, one piece seamless roof, Poly Flex one-piece underbelly covering and screwed stile cabinetry with hardwood stiles.

On the inside, the 2016 Launch features a two-burner range, 8,000-BTU A/C, four cubic-foot refrigerator and freezer, and microwave and range hood. Other standard features include a skylight in tub/shower, electric awning with LED lighting kit, spare tire with carrier, front diamond-plate (black), 18,000-BTU furnace with auto-ignition, six-gallon gas DSI water heater, cable TV prep and rear stabilizer jacks. Also available is an optional 13,500-BTU roof mount A/C. The standard Show Stopper Package features Denver Mattress and heated bunk mats on the 15FD, 16RB, and 17SB, electric awning, spare tire cover and four stabilizer jacks.

The Launch Ultra Lite boasts a jackknife sofa, bath skylight, three-burner range, and double bowl sink on the inside. On the outside, there are StarMAXX pass-through storage compartments on all models, cable and satellite prep, two 30-pound LP bottles with cover, radius colored bottom wrap metal, and wireless backup camera prep. The standard Show Stopper Package for the Launch Ultra Lite enhances the camping experience with an oven, kitchen backsplash, foot flush toilet, XTend-A-Bed, electric tongue jack, and LED accent lighting under kitchen countertops, plus more.

Loading up the family minivan and heading for the open road has never been easier, thanks to the upgraded and enhanced 2016 Starcraft Launch. In addition, Starcraft is proud to stand behind all its models with its two-year limited warranty.
