2015 Jayco Starcrafft

Introducing the Starcraft ‘MYRIG 2,’ our off-grid home on wheels!

As we lived and travelled in a caravan, we considered it really important to be as independent and self-reliant as possible. We were set up to Free Camp as much as possible around the country, which helped to stretch the budget a lot further!
