    I have been running across a few Suburbans out there that have a Starcraft conversion on them. I am assuming this was some sort of aftermarket conversion similar to Vans.

    My question is, does anyone have any good pics of the interiors of these? Looking for 89 - 91 pics.

    Thanks for any info.

    Check out my Brochures page ... go to 1991, and there's a GMC Starcraft thing in there with some pix.

    A lot of them had captains chairs for all passengers. They had nice wood consoles, special trim and such.

    When I was younger my dad had one that was done by a company called travelquest. It had the nice wood work all over, comfy captains chairs up front, super soft middle seat and a fold flat (for a bed) rear seat. Nice custom graphics on the side and some special stereo controls for the back seats as well as limo lights on the inside. It was pretty cool, except for the huge fiberglass running board/fender flare things.

    exactly the same idea, and actually Starcraft did vans too. they are (or were) based here in Elkhart.

    as ugly as they were, i'd bet they were excellent quality. my dad was quality control for the company who made the running boards for TravelQuest.

    They were very good quality and worked really well (looked okay after we put a lift and 33's on it). They never cracked, and barely chipped at the wheel wells after years of gravel road trips.

    wondering value of my 01 starcraft chevy suburban


    just ran across this forum and was wondering if anyone knew what the value would be of a 01 chevy suburban starcraft, i have not seen many of these at all. it has the starcraft conversion sticker on the driver door next to the factory sticker stating this vehicle has been altered by starcraft. just wondering how many were made and if it is rare or not.
