Now that the Starcraft has gone from the shed I thought I should start a thread on the new van we have on order. We have ordered the Journey Deluxe 17-55-9 OB which is the single bed floorplan the same as @chartrock has and @Billrw136 had although a bit of a revamp in 2018 with new coulor scheme inside which we are keen to check out in the flesh. The kids will now be outside in swags which they love. We aren't getting the van until May which was our choice as we have no trips planned until late in the year.
Options are:
Extended drawbar
Centre jockey wheel
Dropdown picnic table
Real leather
Water filter
160 solar upgrade

Still considering an extra battery, delete microwave for cupboard and 16" wheels.
The Journey has heaps of things standard which were options with the Starcraft like large fridge, roof air, smooth walls, Jcontroller(drifter contoller), stereo,Tv.etc

Like it @17triton! Can't wait to see the new van. Not sure if I mentioned to you, but I'd keep the microwave. You can turn a microwave into a cupboard (we store bread and rolls in there) but you can't turn a cupboard into a microwave (unless you park it sun side at Marble Bar).

Toolbox mod for draw bar already in the planning?
DIesel heater? Might bring the Gecko over for a two for one installation... :)

Not sure on the toolbox yet smergs as the drawbar has a very nice tray we might be able to strap things to or for firewood? Still deciding on the microwave but the lack of use in the past and the height in the Journey are the main factors. Sounds good with the diesel heaters mate, do yours first for a refresher lol.

that was quick.. I thought you waiting for a while.. Be nice to see what the new vans look like I gather wait for Melb show?
The van sold a lot quicker than we expected. We didn't really advertise just a couple of expressions of interest on fb as we weren't selling before our Xmas holidays in Warrnambool but we did and they picked it up after we got home. We will be keen to see the new models in Melbourne.

Just a thing on the windows. On another site they are complaining that they use gas struts instead of the clicking type.
After about an hour or so they start to close and jayco know about it
