Starcraft
« on: February 06, 2020, 10:49 AM »
What do I need to know about the old Starcraft Class A’s. Early 70’s I think.
I stumbled on one, strangely enough, abandoned in a field, and since I’m almost finished most of my projects on the Warrior ( yeah- right ) I may need something else to amuse me.
I heard they were one piece fibreglass shells on a steel grid structure?
What chassis were they on?
Drums, discs?
Engines?
I’ll try to get a couple of pics in the next week or so.
I’ve heard the owners aren’t doing well and I don’t really want to bother them until I know a bit more about these rigs

I’m thinking about giving my Winnebago to my sister for the summer. So as soon as I get it running well and most of the deficiencies finished, I’ll be looking for a new project.
From what I can find out, this Starcraft is on a dodge chassis, and may have a 440 motor.
I did have an old dodge class A with a 318 previously. Towed a light trailer around OK. even over some of the mountain passes around here. (See Highway thru Hell TV show)
I did remove the Generator to make room for my tool box and kept gear to a minimum to unburden the little 318.
The 440 would interest me - I don’t think I would go back to a 318 after driving the current Winnie with a 7.4.
I’ll want to pull a slightly heavier trailer now, plus some additional gear.
I’ll stop by today and see if there’s anyone around to chat with.
