Newbie - Input Please

I am about to pull the trigger on my first TT, a Starcraft 265RLS, but before I do I thought I would ask for comments from other forum members. Any input or advice, pro or con would be greatly appreciated.

A StarCraft trailer is as good as any. You can get a good trailer from many manufacturers and bad trailers with shoddy workmanship from the same manufacturers. For the most part they have very young workers building camping trailers so you never know.

I looked at 2012 StarCraft trailers and like I said...they were ok.

I don't know anything about Starcraft, but for the most part TTs are like pizza or sex... even bad ones are still pretty good.
I'd be happy to share what brands/models I like, but if you have your heart set on one, go for it.

Many moons ago in the age of pop-ups and kids, we had some issues with a Starcraft pop-up and Starcraft was really great. They ended up shipping an axle overnight express after the first order got screwed up. Starcraft, along with Jayco offer the 2 year warranty and we were looking for a Jayco when we ended up getting our Minnie.

Good luck and I hope you are enjoying it soon!
