HI1..yes Jim most of what I know on my starcraft rv,came straight from spartan..last year I got the build card from mr.todd Lahr..it's all I could have from him..nothing else recorded for those early years he said..this winter after several try..I finaly gotten hold with Charlie d.Fisher who 've sent me many documents like the ride height,how to measure it,,the spartan owner's manual etc...also got contact with Dewayne A.Miller..(both guy very gentle and patient) .he sent me circuits assign numbers sheet and  wiring diagram..specific to our RVS all on PDF..including airbags numb.and others..if you need and want this I can send all these emails & PDF back to you and as I said it,s all about the spartan chassis ,your the one whos got the part side of starcraft ...for the airbags on the emails take the numbers there is and go and type it on firestone cross reference if it's only the airbags you need  let me know....Now for the ride height on mine I'd wish you were gonna say something in regard of ...yes he's too high compare to yours lower and a better look to.....on your photo is the suspension up or down ,that makes a big difference 'cause if yours is up then as I always tought mine is ain't normal..I know the ride height has been touch all the way.and I'm working on it anyway soon I will make a little video and send it to you then we'll know more what to talk about.

HI Jim!  wow..only 8 units, amazing.!!! they probably are the only motorhome builder that last for a so short time in business..

I found  the s/n for the spartan chassis but I did'nt for starcraft 

the only thing I found is an idy plate screwed up the wall behind driver's seat and it's not identifyed to starcraft but under a digit number company and it shows the same starcraft s/n numb.

one more thing..how many front shocks on yours mine are 4 ..I wander if it's been buid like this or if someone added 2.....that is all for now...take care ....mike

I fastened the roof to the top rail frame under the curved side cap.  I used a 4" wide seam of 221 caulk, hex rubber sealed self drilling screws, and covered the top of the screws with sealant.  The roof has been subjected to heavy rain and snow with no leaks to date (3 years).  I did look at rolling the roof over the side however the attachment points on the side frame were spaced every 24".
