2017 Starcraft Launch Mini 17SB - YouTube

What better way to spend time with your family or by yourself than with a light weight action trailer from Nielson RV.

This month we are featuring the 2017 Starcraft Launch Mini 17SB. Yes, it is a 2017, but it is brand new and never been used. (It has been a demo model, so we have significantly discounted the price).
It is the perfect trailer/hybrid for almost any truck or SUV to pull. It comes in weighing 3,105 lbs (dry weight) and 20’4″ in total length.

Take your camping up a notch with this Starcraft Launch Mini expandable in tow!  Model 17SB offers a front and rear side tent bunk with the side bunk having a queen size mattress.  There is also a rear corner bath, along with all of the basics that will keep you and your family comfortable no matter where you choose to go.

Straight in the door you will notice the booth dinette. This is perfect for dining, or board games, plus the front seat extends across the entire width of the unit. You will also find an overhead shelf above the opening to the front tent end bunk here as well.

To the left of the entry door you will find your kitchen area which features a single sink, a two burner cook-top with overhead microwave oven, and refrigerator.  Opposite just off the side queen tent bunk, and next to the dinette, there is a food storage pantry.  There are also overhead cabinets above the opening to the side queen tent end bunk for added storage to help keep things neat and tidy.

In the rear left corner you have the convenience of your own complete bath including an angled tub/shower, toilet, and sink. Just outside the bathroom along the rear wall between the bathroom and side bunk is a wardrobe for storage, plus so much more!

Here is a list of the complete specs for the trailer.

Brian Head resort and nearby Cedar Breaks National Monument are recreational gems which have hidden from the masses since their founding. Located in the mountains east of Cedar City and Parowan, Utah, Brian Head is becoming a major destination for those seeking cool summer temperatures, mountain scenery and recreational opportunities ranging from skiing and snowmobiling in the winter to mountain biking, 4-wheeling and fishing in the summer.

When most tourists come to Utah, they are likely to be seeking red-rock scenery or snow-covered ski resorts. With Zion and Bryce Canyons in the southwestern and Arches and Canyonlands in the southeastern corners of the state, Cedar Breaks is not on most people’s “radar screen” when it comes to high-desert landscapes. And with northern Utah’s booming ski industry and famous resorts like Park City and Snowbird, few think of southern Utah as a ski destination.

Surprisingly, Brian Head and Cedar Breaks bring red-rock landscapes and world-class skiing to one location. It may be even more shocking to learn that, although it’s situated 150 miles south of Utah’s famous Wasatch Range, Brian Head is the highest ski resort in the state at nearly 11,000 feet! With the growth of sun-soaked towns like St. George and Las Vegas, Nevada, desert-dwellers are discovering that the best place to trade golf-clubs for skis or to escape sizzling summer temperatures, is just a short drive away.

Recent improvements at Brian Head include a high-speed quad lift, which takes skiers and snowboarders to 11,000 ft. in just a couple of minutes, and a small fishing lake, stocked to the gills with rainbow trout. And Brian Head has a spectacular Independence Day celebration each year. There’s something refreshing about watching fireworks on the 4th of July, while wearing a jacket or snuggling under a blanket! And, if you’ve never seen the wild flowers which seem to peak in early August, you won’t want to miss it!

Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks

Our nation’s two most visited national parks every year are Yellowstone and Yosemite. It’s easy to see why. They both exhibit magnificent scenery and natural values. Yellowstone in Wyoming was the first in 1872 while Yosemite in California didn’t get federal protection until 1890.

The two parks are similar and yet very different. Both have spectacular waterfalls, Yosemite’s the highest and most conspicuous. You can’t miss it. Yellowstone has geysers and a rich variety of wildlife. But this park has been written about—at least in Utah and hereabouts—far more than Yosemite.

Let’s focus on the California national park. Explorer John Muir did much to tell the world about this Valhalla’s natural wonders after President Abraham Lincoln mentioned it as a possible new park. It was so close to the big cities of San Francisco and Oakland that when the word got out, vast crowds crushing in were inevitable. My family and I visited it on a July evening, entranced as we followed the Merced River. I love rivers like the meandering and placidl Merced and even more when told it was a trout stream. That meant it was alive with creatures of all shapes and sizes, insects, crustacheons and minnows which feed those trout. It was a lovely vision.

The thing that struck our family upon entering the park was the smooth-domed and towering mountains interspersed with emerald meadows beneath those tall peaks. Ponds reflecting aspens and conifers . Yellowstone has the meadows but not the precipitous and imposing mountain peaks nearby. Yosemite is most of all, a wow on first sigh…and then, “Let’s get out of the car and start walking for a close-up view of everything!”

Yosemite is a climber’s park. High and smooth mountain walls just naturally invite such adventure. Of course, all such activities including remote area backpacking must be coordinated with park officials. Interestingly, the roadless wilderness that is this park extends almost all around it. There is Ansel Adams Wilderness (named after the famous black/white image photographer), Hoover, Devil’s Post Pile etc.

There is so much to see from whatever gate you enter. There are three such gates. They follow highways 120, 140 and 49, north to south. There is one less used entrance on the east side, away from the big cities, a continuation of 120. Parking can be a problem but like Zion National Park, shuttles are used and run often.

Yosemite Valley is home to Half-Dome and some of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls.[/caption]Most RVers from southern Utah will drive I-15 and I-58 to Bakersfield, switch to I-99 and then follow the signs to Yosemite. California has several other national parks in enroute, including Kings Canyon and Sequoia, for way stops.

Utah is an amazing state that offers tons of gorgeous places to visit to the entire family. If you’re looking for a place to take your new RV for a spin, look no further than Utah. This beautiful place features towering rock sculptures, mountains, and forests. There’s a landscape for everyone.

One of the most gorgeous places in Utah is Moab. Located in eastern Utah, this city is the gateway to Arches National Park and features incredible red rock formations. The Southwest portion of Moab includes Canyonlands National Park –  a treasure trove of lovely mesas and buttes. There’s a wide range of sites to see, each one a close tie with the one before as far as beauty goes.

Corona Arch

From hiking to climbing, this sandstone arch is accessed via a 1.5 mile trail. The short length however is a bit steep and some have suggested you have a small ladder to get to the arch. Overall, this site is a great walk for families and dirt bikers.

Sand Flats Recreation Area

This 9,000 square mile recreation area is a fabulous place for adventurers to visit. It boasts Jeep trials, perfect for those who enjoy off-roading, as well as a well known bike trial that is sure to give you a run for your money.

This well maintained trail provides adventure and even requires some mild creek crossing at times. If you plan to bring kids, make sure you’ve got a baby carrier for the littlest and that the entire family has waterproof hiking shoes, since you might get wet. Depending on the water levels, the kids might have a great time splashing in the creek and looking for little critters. It promises great fun to all.

One of the most dreaded tasks of any RVer is emptying their black tank. This is where all of your waste goes, particularly that from your toilet. Yeah, ew. It’s no wonder emptying it is such a pain. And on top of emptying it, you need to find a place that actually offers a sanitary dumping area.

Enter, Nielson RV. We are proud to offer RVers a free RV dump station. This station is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. So wherever the road might take you, you can rest confident that you will have a place to empty your tank.

Here is what you can find at our dump station:

  • Water to flush black & grey tanks | Clean water to rinse your tanks so that they are ready to go for the next round.
  • Water to fill fresh water | Hit the road with a tank full of fresh water.
  • Sewer hose | Easy to hook up.
  • Free air for tires | Get on the road knowing that your tires are inflated at the proper level for ultimate safety.
  • Propane (There is a Fee)

When using the dump station, there is some etiquette that all RVers are expected to abide by. This helps to ensure the area is kept clean and functional for whomever wants to use it.

First and foremost, please do not dump anything in the dump station except for your holding tank contents. We also ask that you avoid dumping directly in the disposal station’s apron.

Make sure you have plenty of towels with you in case you make a mess or spill. That way you can easily clean it up. This also means that you shouldn’t leave garbage in the area or put used rubber gloves down the sewer.

Do you have questions about emptying your RV tanks? Contact us with any questions and we will help you figure out what needs to happen.
