If you are interested in a 2014 I have a 14' DutchStar 4018, better than new. All the minor "new" coach issues have been resolved. Have not fully made up my mind to sell or not so its not listed yet. It's been a great coach but we are looking to switch to a B+ or class C.

I've been very happy with my 2015 DS4018. I love the comfort steer, tag axle, smooth ride, full wall slide, fit and finish on the inside, and the different configuration options that were available to me when I did the custom order.

I too wanted to stay at the 40ft mark and also have a tag axle. I believe Newmar is the only motorcoach manufacturer that provides that option. That's why the 40ft. Allegro Bus didn't make the cut when I made my final decision.

We love our DS We started out wanting to get the 4018 but the DW looked at the 4369 and loved th larger shower and rear bath. With the wheel cut these things have I've tucked her in to some pretty tight areas with no problems. Which ever you choose you won't be sorry!

We picked up our 2015 DS 4018 last week drove 1500 miles home and could not be happier with our choice. The windshield wiper coming off during our first thunder storm did cause a moment of concern��. All part of the adventure of traveling the country in a great machine.

We were sold on the DS 4369 and then we found a layout that fit the two of us, it happened to be a 4018. I agree with the other post, go with what's fits you.

You cannot go wrong with a DS no matter the size or model.

Thank You All,
Did buy the 2015 DSDP 4018. Will pick it up Wednesday 7-18-2015 at Midwest RV, in Grand Rapids MI. Our sales contact there was Ron Pruitt. Great Guy, no pressure to do a deal. Hope the pick up will go as well. It would surprise me if it does not. Midwest RV seems to be a class act. Will let you all know.

Congratulation. Yes, Midway RV is a class act with excellent service after the sale. We purchased 2 Newmar coaches from them. And would do it again.

Midway is top notch in every aspect. You made the right choice on the coach and the dealer.

bigakarr,

I have been at Midway RV since Tuesday taking delivery of my new coach. I saw your new Dutch Star parked out front; it is one great looking bus! I know first-hand, you're going to be thrilled with your 4018!

I whole-heartedly agree with you about how great it is to work with Midway. When you arrive to take delivery, you will find that their service is just as good and honest as their sales team. They must be doing something right, they sold six motorhomes yesterday alone.

If you are still in the area and plan to return to the dealership over the next couple of days, look me up. I'm camped out in their parking lot until Wednesday.
