Topeka, Ind. – Starcraft holds strong to its roots after 50 years in the RV business by manufacturing quality RVs at an affordable price and the Launch series is no exception. Now with an Ultra Lite series, the light-weight, fiberglass Launch travel trailer remains a great choice for most minivan and crossover towers. 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.
Launch has six floorplans, including the 15FD, 16RB, 17FB, 17SB, 18BH, and 19BHS while the Launch Ultra Lite has four floorplans, all of which boast a 78” ceiling height and range from 15 to 31 feet in length, yet five out of the nine remain under 3,000 pounds. The 10 floorplans range in sleeping capacity from three to ten people depending on the floorplan. The 26BHS features double over double bunks in the rear and a queen bed in the front while the 17FB features a full bed in the front. The 19BHS, the newest addition to the line-up, has a queen bed in the back with bunk beds in the front. In addition to the added floorplans, the enhancements to this model year include a larger fresh water tank capacity, new décor, and a six-gallon gas DSI water heater.
With durable vacuum-bonded aluminum frame construction, the amazingly affordable Launch is also amazingly well built. The Launch has an expandable AquaShield 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 decking, crowned roof trusses, one piece seamless roof, Poly Flex one-piece underbelly covering, and screwed stile cabinetry with hardwood stiles.

On the outside, there are pass-through storage compartments on all models, cable and satellite prep, two 20-pound LP bottles with cover, radius colored bottom wrap metal, and outside grill prep.
