I don't own one and have never seen one except on the web...it looks like they probably don't build many, so I am interested to know if there are any owners here.

They are very popular with the carnival crowds as well as custom harvesters. They are VERY heavy. Over 20K# and built VERY well. They seem to hold value well too. Each unit is a custom build..............

There is one that was special built for a person on the HDT forum on escapees's forum but I don't know the details. You might want to explore that forum.

Mark (DIY Guy) on the HDT forum has a custom build spacecraft complete with inlaid hardwood floors that he went to the factory and installed imself. They are completly custom and VERY expensive. Marks has 17.5 inch tires, air over hydraulic brakes a rear garage for his bikes and woodworking tools, an entertainment center with computers to generate music that he composes, painted walls, custom kitchen in the goosneck etc etc etc. It is a BEAUTIFUL, well built trailer. They will work with you to put anythink into the trailer that you want. They also build some semi standard floorplans that they will make limited changes on for a lot less money. If you want it personalized, Spacecraft is a great choice. just my 2 cents. Gene

We toured Mark and Dianes 5'er last spring and it was quite impressive. If we were ready to full time then Spacecraft would be our choice.

we went to the tampa rv show last weekend and space craft had a unit on display. they are a very impressive unit. you choose everything from the length, to wall paneling, wood color, carpet, flooring, shades, upholstry etc. there seems to be nothing they will not do. all cabinets are custom designed for your need. they use a ceiling i have never seen in a unit before. it is a high gloss fiberglass. we spent about 3 1/2 hours talking and doing a basic layout and color selections. we are now awaiting the estimated cost.

Here is Mark & Diane's website http://www.rvnomad.com/

It is a beautiful trailer. I believe Spacecraft prices would be comparable to similar Tetons or Royals Internationals, maybe even a little less. Obviously at the top end of the scale.
