Starcraft RV kicked off its 50th anniversary celebration on June 1 with a company picnic and the “AR-ONE Golden Giveaway,” a year-long consumer sweepstakes in the United States and Canada.

The 2014 model year marks 50 years in the RV industry for Starcraft, a pioneer builder of folding camping trailers.

“We’re excited to be celebrating our 50th year in business.” said Akos Sefcsik, vice president and general manager for Topeka, Ind.-based Starcraft. “It’s a milestone that not many have achieved in our industry.”

According to a news release, to celebrate this milestone, Starcraft held a company picnic for its employees at its campus in Topeka. Nearly 300 employees attended the picnic where Starcraft catered a lunch, had carnival games for the children and a cornhole tournament for the adults.

In addition, the company also announced The “AR-ONE Golden Giveaway.” It will last a full year and the drawing will take place in June 2014. The winner of this sweepstakes will be given an AR-ONE 25BHS travel trailer. Participants can enter in two ways: online at the Golden Giveaway website, which will be linked to and Facebook, or they may send in an entry form they pick up at their local Starcraft dealership.

The company has also added a 50th anniversary decal to all 2014 units as well as a 50th anniversary promotional package featuring various items special for the 50th year. Other 50th year celebrations include the launch of a new website for the company, a gift bag for every customer who purchases a new, previously untitled model year 2014 unit and an event for dealers during the fall open house.

“We have planned these various 50th year activities and programs in hopes that our employees, dealers and customers feel as much pride in our 50 years as we do.” said Sefcsik. “We plan to keep this celebration going all year.”
