At one point in the past, Jayco bought out Starcraft. Starcraft IMHO had better quality than Jayco. Jayco’s quality has been reportedly going down for some time, especially after being bought out by Thor. You are in the transition timeframe with Starcraft I think. How much of these doldrums actually rubbed off on Starcraft is unknown.

As far as the Pro's & Con's, are you asking about the build quality of Starcraft in general, or what to look for in buying a used 5 year old hybrid?

Jayco bought Startcraft in 1991, Then in 2016 Jayco was bought out by Thor at which now controls 47% of the RV market. Not a good thing for consumers.

That is why I steered away from any Thor product after owning two Aerolite products a division of Thor. My main beef was dealing with Keystone ( they took care of Aerolite's warranty issues) warranty department. Was like pulling teeth. That is why I went this time with ORV.
