• Heated & Massage Seating in Living Quarters
• Hardwood Cabinet Doors
• Electronics Package with Bluetooth Capabilities
“We’ve listened very closely to what our dealers and retail consumers have been asking for while studying the market,” Starcraft RV General Manager Jeff Kloska says. “Expanding on the trend of lighter-weight travel trailers and fifth wheels, we’re confident that the timing is perfect to bring the Telluride series to market. The Starcraft fifth wheel group has worked tirelessly to get these products ready to show at Louisville. From designing desired floorplans at ideal weights, to building beautiful, feature-rich products, the team has succeeded in delivering the Telluride series at a price-point that our dealers have not seen from a Starcraft fifth wheel before.”
Starcraft RV will be displaying several units from its travel trailer and fifth wheel line-up starting Tuesday, Nov. 28 at the RVIA Trade Show in Louisville.
