Topeka, Ind. – The 2012 Travel Star Expandable (EXP) offers plenty of room for the whole family, while still being light enough to be towed by most minivans, SUVs and crossovers. The durable construction also makes these units strong enough to go practically anywhere.
Featuring the industry’s most durable tents, the 1,100-pound rated queen bunk ends boast AquaShield Aqualon water repellent tent materials, backed by an industry-best seven-year warranty. Aqualon resists mold, cracks, scratches and stretching and is permanently attached for easy setup. Meanwhile, vacuum-bonded laminated sidewalls and an integrated corrosion-resistant A-frame give the 2012 Travel Star EXP the strength it needs to hold up to Mother Nature. Inside, Travel Star uses wood screwed cabinet stiles, which are much more durable than stapled construction.
Small when it needs to be towed, but roomy when a family wants to spread out, the 2012 Travel Star EXP offers many conveniences in five innovative floorplans with models ranging from 17 feet to 23 feet. Interior standards include 78-inch ceiling height, three-burner range, six cubic-foot flush-mount refrigerator, stereo with MP3 input jack and two speakers, privacy curtains for bunks, porcelain toilet with foot flush, cable and satellite TV prepped and crank-up HDTV antenna with signal booster. Two of the floorplans also offer U-Dinettes with plenty of room for the whole family.
Outside, the diamond plate front profile protects the exterior from road debris, while a pair of 20 lb. propane bottles are easily accessible thanks to Travel Star EXP’s new cover. Other exterior standards include front and rear stabilizer jacks, a convenient outside shower and radial tires with optional aluminum rims. And with a wide-stance axle design, the unit’s weight is distributed over a larger area, creating a safer, easier towing experience.
The 2012 Travel Star EXP was designed to be easy on the road and the wallet. Affordably priced yet well equipped, the Travel Star EXP is perfect for families who love to camp, but do not want to pay for features they don’t need. In addition, all Starcraft products have been Green Certified by TRA Certification, Inc, an independent third party certification agency. The Travel Star earned a top-level Certification through the use of sustainable materials, environmentally-friendly production methods, energy-efficient components and reduction of waste.
