Starcraft Targets New Segment with Comet Mini Debut


Capitalizing on the company’s increased manufacturing capacity, Starcraft RV has added a Euro-shaped lightweight travel trailer segment to its lineup.

The company, which Thor Industries acquired in July this year as part of its acquisition of Jayco, debuted its Comet Mini, according to a news release Tuesday (Aug. 30).

The company hopes to appeal to the weight-conscious consumer with the new lineup, utilizing aluminum caged, laminated sidewalls to maintain an ultra-low dry weight, according to the release. The Comet line debuts with five models.

“Building on the momentum of our products in the marketplace, the growth of our company has opened new doors and allowed us to continue to listen and react to the needs of the market and provide the products our dealers want and retail customers are demanding,” said Akos Sefcsik president of Starcraft RV.

Inside, the Comet Mini’s standard features include convection microwave and upgraded pleated nightshades, as well as optional 13,500 BTU air conditioning, electric awning, electric tongue jack and bumper mount grill.

“The Comet Mini looks different than your typical travel trailer because it is different,” said Nick Eppert, Starcraft RV’s vice president of sales and product development.  “The Comet Mini features a European-styled aerodynamic exterior design, with a one-piece fiberglass roof and diamond plate lower wall shielding in the front and rear. The Comet Mini will definitely stand out from the crowd.”
