Starcraft RV will introduce two new products – the redesigned Travel Star travel trailer and the Launch – during its Sept. 20 –22 Open House located on CR 6 at Ada Drive in Elkhart, Ind. The event is running in conjunction with the 4th annual Elkhart County RV Manufacturers’ Open House, scheduled for Sept. 19-23.

Lengths run 28 feet to 30 feet offering seven-foot interior height and a 30-inch by 72-inch entry doors – four inches taller than comparable models, according to Starcraft.

The kitchens in the Travel Star line have been updated with a residential style faucet with a pullout sprayer, a deep oversized kitchen sink, covers for the sink with integrated drying rack, a storable kitchen cutting board and a double drawer with incorporated silverware dividers.
