Now that 2018 is in full swing and all of the new RV models have been announced, we thought we’d show you five of the best compact travel trailers for 2018.

While many of us are working at getting through winter, it doesn’t take much to get the mind wandering off to relaxing days spent around the campsite. The steady stream of cars parking at the local RV show over the weekend says I’m not alone in thinking this way either.

Here are five of the best compact travel trailers for 2018 that you should take a look at for the upcoming camping season.

starcraft0506In a move brought on by improved economic conditions, the Starcraft RV division of Jayco, Inc. has resumed production in its Topeka, Ind. plant.

The Starcraft facility had previously been closed and production of Starcraft products had been consolidated into Jayco’s Middlebury, Ind. complex as part of Jayco’s efforts to trim costs and reduce production capacity.

“When we consolidated the Starcraft operations into Jayco’s Middlebury campus, we indicated that our goal would be to reinstate the operations in Topeka as soon as market conditions would allow,” says Jim Jacobs, Starcraft RV general manager. “We believe that time is now. The year has started off on a pace well ahead of last year both in shipping and in retail sales activity. We continue to be optimistic that 2010 will be a much improved year for our industry.”

jayco-lg0426Jayco, Inc. has announced that all of its products, including brands produced by Jayco, Starcraft RV and Entegra Coach, have been “green certified” by TRA Certification, Inc., an internationally accredited certification organization.

This makes Jayco the first major RV manufacturer to be 100 percent green certified and fully-recognized for building products with green manufacturing processes and materials.

There are four levels of TRA’s green rating for RV manufacturers: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Emerald. The majority of Jayco, Starcraft and Entegra Coach products achieved Emerald ratings in three out of five categories (water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and operation and maintenances) and Gold ratings in the other two categories (resource efficiency and energy efficiency).
