We’re so glad you’ve joined us once again here on the Christie’s RV blog. As one of Ontario’s top RV dealer, we continuously strive to bring you the very best RVs and associated products on the market, but over and above that, it is our mission to provide the very best customer service not just in Ontario, but in the entire Country! We always carry a large (and fresh) inventory of RVs for sale, including toy haulers, travel trailers and fifth wheels from the best manufacturers in the business. One of the most popular brands we carry is Starcraft RV; Starcraft is renowned for keeping things simple, they include everything you need in your RV, and they don’t overcomplicate things, and that’s one of the things the team at Christie’s RV love most about this maker.
Today we’re planning to introduce to you the latest version of one of Starcraft’s most popular line ups – the 2020 Mossy Oak series of travel trailers, including the Mossy Oak Single Axle, the Mossy Oak, and the Mossy Oak Ultra Lite, this marks another year of partnership with this awesome outdoors brand.
If you’re not familiar with Mossy Oak, the brand started in Texas back in 1986. Founder, Toxey Haas was a keen outdoorsman, and drawing inspiration from the world around him came up with a revolutionary camouflage design. This design featured photorealistic moss, twigs, leaves, sticks, etc. and gave those seeking to blend into their environments a real edge. In 2000, Haas sold his company to Russell Brands, and after which it became known as Mossy Oak Apparel Company. Since then, they have produced high quality and innovative outdoors focused clothing and equipment for hunters, fishermen and anyone else who loves spending time in nature. Recognizing the opportunity for a mutually beneficial relationship, Starcraft teamed up with Mossy Oak to build a line of RVs designed for those who demand the very best when it comes to spending time in the great outdoors.
All Starcraft RVs feature some common construction techniques that help them stand head and shoulders above the competitor’s models. One of the most renowned features is, of course, the Magnum Roof System. This innovative roof improves strength by as much as 50 percent over any other manufacturer’s product, with a tested load of over 4000 pounds. Confident in the knowledge that their RVs are built to last, Starcraft put their money where their mouth is and offer a 3-year limited structural warranty, as well as a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty
Mossy Oak Single Axle
The Mossy Oak Single Axle model is the smallest of the series, but don’t let that fool you, this is a serious RV with big features.
Due to its lightweight, you’re going to be able to tow this easily with a light-duty truck, or even with an SUV. This version is available in a choice of three-floor plans, one of which comes with a slide-out dinette, perfect for expanding your living space when you arrive at your destination.
This model is fantastic for short getaways and quick hunting or fishing trips. It features sleeping arrangements for up to five campers, with the option of a walk around queen bed on select floor plans.
For a small unit, this RV boasts excellent storage, too. You can choose to have storage closets on both sides of the master bedroom, with a shelf over the top to connect the two. There’s also cavernous storage in the pass-through, which is perfect for fishing tackle or any other oversized items, or even for dirty gear that you don’t really want to bring inside.
It boasts cable and satellite prep, making it easy to hook up your AV equipment. Watching the TV might not be top of your to-do list when you’re exploring the outdoors in your Starcraft RV Mossy Oak, but it’s a handy set up to have for days when the weather isn’t cooperating.
Because this model is geared towards outdoorsmen, Starcraft has put real thought into the design. Believe us, this isn’t just a rebadged model from a different line. A conscious decision was made not to install carpet anywhere in this model, and this is a big advantage if you (or your dogs) are coming back to your trailer wet and or muddy from a long day out.
Keeping things bright inside, the Starcraft RV Mossy Oak Single Axle does benefit from LED lighting throughout the interior. This style of lighting is brighter than traditional incandescent bulbs and is also more energy-efficient. Another benefit of LED lighting is that it gives off less waste heat energy than traditional bulbs, meaning your AC won’t need to work so hard to keep temperatures down.
Speaking of keeping temperatures down, when you opt for the customer convenience package, you’ll upgrade your air conditioner to a powerful 13,5000 BTU unit. Also included in this package are some kitchen upgrades such as:
- A three-burner gas range with a glass cover
- A 6 cubic feet fridge
- A 60:40 split sink
- A large Microwave
In short, the single axle model remains a strong choice for those looking for a ‘go-anywhere’ easy to tow rig with big features and a small price tag.
The Starcraft Mossy Oak is a step up in size and available features in the Mossy Oak series of Starcraft trailers. There are 11 excellent floor plans to choose from, with a choice of rigid sides, one, or two slide outs. On this model, slide-outs contain either dinettes, couches, or kitchens, all giving the same end result of more available floor space in the living area.
Of course, this being a bigger rig than the single axle version, you’ll find even more storage space. Outside you’ll find an oversized pass-through storage unit, big enough to accommodate most outdoor sporting equipment and fishing gear. The pass-through also features lighting, perfect for loading and unloading in darker conditions. The pass-through doors themselves feature innovative magnetic latches that really take the hassle out of getting things in and out. Not only that, but there’s not hooks and latches to break either.
For easy set up at your destination, the Starcraft RV Mossy Oak includes rear wireless camera prep; this makes backing up into the narrowest of pitches an absolute breeze. For easy connect and disconnect from your tow vehicle, this unit also packs in a power tongue jack.
The Mossy Oak features equipment rarely seen at its price point, for example, it boasts self-adjusting electric brakes. Connect them to your tow vehicle’s brake controller for more control and safer towing en route to wherever you’re going.
This model has phenomenal kitchen facilities; standard equipment includes a 6 cubic feet fridge a 60:40 split sink, a range hood, and a high rise faucet, plus – if you’re a big fan of outdoor cooking, you’re going to love the outdoor kitchen available on select floorplans! It features a two-burner cooktop and a refrigerator. If you’re stocked up with gear for your trip, this can save you having to pack a gas or charcoal grill, and you still get your alfresco cooking experience.
With as many as ten berths available on select floorplans, this is a trailer designed for the whole family or as many as your hunting and fishing buddies as you can round up! The double over double bunk beds have an enormous 600lb capacity, so even larger adults will sleep comfortably.
The bathrooms in these models boast a foot flush toilet for convenience and hygiene purposes, and also a sizeable medicine cabinet with a mirrored door for a real residential feel.
The Mossy Oak comes as standard with a powerful 13,500 BTU air conditioner, but if you like to keep your RV cool (or you regularly host a lot of guests), then consider choosing the 15,000 BTU air conditioning upgrade, or the 50 amp service with a second 13,500 BTU AC unit (available on select floor plans). You get precision temperature control with a Mossy Oak RV as this model also benefits from closeable AC vents. For additional power, it also features solar prep too, just hook up any plug and play solar panels for a boost in energy.
Mossy Oak Ultra Lite
The Mossy Oak Ultra-Lite tops the line up of the Starcraft RV Mossy Oak range. It comes in six different floor plans with sleeping arrangements from three to nine berths. It boasts high ceilings on all plans, in fact, 81”, so the vast majority will be able to walk around in complete comfort (no crouching required!).
The construction of this RV is one of its most outstanding features, consider this – when you buy a Starcraft Mossy Oak Ultra Lite, you’re getting a trailer with a PVC roof membrane that comes with a standard 15-year warranty! That’s some spectacular peace of mind. You know you’ll be leak-free for years to come!
Loaded with premium features, the Starcraft RV Ultra Lite cranks up the luxury, without losing any of the ruggedness that makes it deserving of the Mossy Oak name. The construction benefits from rigid foam insulation, for superior thermal performance as well as greater structural rigidity. The floor and roof benefit from fiberglass insulation, too, so you’re going to be keeping that cold air where you want it – inside! The insulation really makes the Starcraft RV Mossy Oak Ultra-Lite an incredible energy-efficient model – great for those looking to try and ‘go green’.
On the exterior sidewalls, you’re getting Tuff Shell construction; it looks great, and it’s super easy to keep clean and maintain. The windows are made from tinted safety glass, they resist cracking and shattering, and the tint also helps to keep your interior temperature down.
This model benefits from aluminum rims, they not only lend a sleek and sporty appearance, but they don’t corrode as steel wheels can. This means less maintenance and more worry-free traveling. It features a full-size spare wheel, with a carrier, too, so in the event of a puncture, there’s no need to mess about with repair kits. At the back there’s a pre-mounted roof ladder, making it easy to get up on to the fully walkable Magnum Roof.
On the inside, there’s a central control unit. This hub has the switches for lights, speakers, etc. all in one spot – it’s a super convenient feature and makes wiring in any new equipment incredibly easy. While we’re talking about electronics, this model benefits from electrical outlets and USB ports on either side of the 80-inch residential queen bed – no more arguing over who gets to charge their phone!
As we mentioned at the beginning, Starcraft is known for keeping things simple, but it doesn’t mean that they don’t give you options if you want them. Available extras on this model include a high definition LED TV, as well as a tri-fold sofa on select floor plans. There is also the option to include a second air conditioning unit. If you regularly camp in hot areas this second unit can be an absolute lifesaver, especially on larger models with more people staying in them.
