Stargazing has never been this comfortable. The Starcraft AR-One Maxx toy hauler is the perfect travel companion, combing lightweight construction with convenient design.

With 12 floorplans to choose from, the AR-One Maxx comes in a variety of layouts that cater to different families with different needs. We chose to explore the 26HR because it’s the perfect choice for an adventurous couple that loves to entertain. The 26HR has an unloaded vehicle weight of 5,530 lbs, dry hitch weight of 790 lbs, gross vehicle weight rating of 8,995 lbs and cargo carrying capacity of 3,405 lbs. Its exterior length is 30’10”, exterior width is 96” and interior height is 81”. For liquids, the Starcraft AR-One Maxx 26HR has a fresh water capacity of 42 gallons, gray wastewater capacity of 32.5 gallons and black wastewater capacity of 32.5 gallons. It can sleep up to five people.

Like all Starcraft trailers, the AR-One Maxx features a Magnum Roof System. With sturdy vertical studs and 7” header beams, it’s one of the strongest roofs in the industry. A standard climate package protects your trailer from cold temperatures through insulation, heating and an enclosed underbelly. Trailer walls are equipped with TuffShell vacuum-bonded lamination, combining welded aluminum framing, fiberglass sidewalls and metal backers. It is equipped with a 7’ by 6’ tamp door. Starcraft’s confidence in the construction of its trailers is proven with a two-year limited warranty.

The Starcraft AR-One Maxx has an attractive exterior, featuring three-toned metal and dark-tinted safety glass windows. A drain hose carrier and end caps are located in the bumper and the rain guttering comes with molded drip spouts. Equipped with solar prep, you can choose to be eco-friendly and equip your trailer with solar panels. You can also request a bumper-mount grill and two exterior speakers. Other options include aluminum rims, a roof ladder, glow-in-the-dark graphics and an exterior shower. With so many options to choose from, your Starcraft AR-One Maxx will cater to your specific needs. When you’re ready to explore inside, pull the 19” large plastic grab handle and walk in.

When you walk inside, you’ll find yourself in the living room. Furnished with honey glazed cherry cabinetry and large windows, the AR-One Maxx 26HR has a warm, cottage feel. For your convenience, the Dehco carpet is stain resistant, making it easy to keep clean. The living space is in the same room as the kitchen and features two sofa chairs and an entertainment center with a 12V stereo (CD/DVD/USB input). If you’re an entertainment junkie, you can request a medium LED TV. If you’re entertaining guests, you can seat them on one of two fold-up sofas.

The kitchen is an integral part of any camping trailer, and the AR-One Maxx kitchen surpasses all expectations. Equipped with a three-burner range, six-cubic-foot refrigerator and microwave, you have the appliances and space to make affordable home-cooked meals. Wash dishes in the acrylic double bowl sink, equipped with a high-rise faucet. For your convenience, the ball-bearing drawer guides have a 50 lb capacity with full-drawer extension. If you love the smell of freshly baked cookies, you can even request an oven for an extra price.

The AR-One Maxx’s bathroom is bigger and better than your average camper trailer’s bathroom. It comes equipped with a medicine cabinet, bath vent and foot flush toilet. If you’re traveling with your family, you might want to request an exterior shower.

The bedroom is the most important room in the house, providing you with the beauty sleep you need to maximize your time outdoors. The Queen-sized Evergreen mattress has upgraded radius corners and a wardrobe on each side. For an extra price, you can request sofa pillows and a bedspread. With two windows, the bedroom gets plenty of natural light. Located away from the living area, the bedroom also gets plenty of privacy.

The Starcraft AR-One Maxx 26HR sells for around $20,000. For more information visit http://www.starcraftrv.com/.
