Starcraft RV Enters New Travel Trailer Segment

Tue Aug 30, 2016

147256470127267.jpgStarcraft RV has announced its entry into the Euro-shaped light weight travel trailer segment with the introduction of the CometTM Mini.

“Building on the momentum of our products in the marketplace, the growth of our company has opened new doors and allowed us to continue to listen and react to the needs of the market and provide the products our dealers want and retail customers are demanding,” Starcraft RV President Akos Sefcsik says. “The Comet Mini is a shining example of our focus.”
“The Comet Mini looks different than your typical travel trailer because it is different,”

Starcraft RV’s Vice President of Sales and Product Development Nick Eppert says. “The Comet Mini features a European-styled aerodynamic exterior design, with a one-piece fiberglass roof and diamond plate lower wall shielding in the front and rear. The Comet Mini will definitely stand out from the crowd.”

“By entering this new segment of travel trailers, Starcraft is looking to reach new buyers and grow our Starcraft family,” Eppert says. “The Starcraft owners group, which just celebrated its 50-year anniversary, is one of the most tenured owners group in our industry. With the introduction of the new Comet, Launch Grand Touring and Solstice® Super Lite, we are positioning ourselves for another 50 years.”
