[Kurt] I love my Travelstar (CK) We were also going to by the Stampede but the dealer told us we couldn't tow it with our Explorer.
We have traveled all around the NE, NY, and PA and have had no problems even up steep grades. (even obtain 15 mpg)towing our Travelstar 17CK
We enjoy the camper coming from a popup, the newer design (2001) that has a seperate tub and toilet and a full time table is even better. (gee, they always have a reason for upgrading)
I think either camper is good but this is our 2nd Starcraft and the quality I think is above average and all the Starcraft people are great to work with.
