2015 Newmar coach deliveries thread

I though it might be entertaining to start a thread for those of us with 2015 coaches on order. Please post what you ordered, when, where, who, you ordered it from and expected delivery.

Maybe follow up with comment and pictures after delivery.

We can "wait it out" together.

I'm almost at the end of this road ... finally!

I ordered a Dutch Star 4381, placed the order on September 5th with Coachlight RV in Carthage MO. I watched the coach go through production the first week of December and it arrived at the dealership on December 15th. I just inspected the unit at Coachlight on Monday and will start delivery on Monday January 5th. I'll post more photos after I take delivery ... took this one on Monday.

Great way to start the New Year!

That is gorgeous! What color is that exterior? What color interior did you get?

Thanks a lot!

We did a custom paint scheme, the skin and "A" color are Labrador Black Pearl, the "B" color is Dark Fawn Metallic and the "C" color is Light Gold Metallic. Only went with 3 colors to simplify the graphic and we eliminated the fade in the graphic as well. I have a bit more chrome to add during delivery.

Interior is a customization of colors and materials from Ventana LE through London Aire with Manhattan Maple cabinets.

Looking forward to seeing your photos, you have a really nicely optioned coach ... you are going to love it. I think that Phantom interior selection is awesome, should look great. Not too long a wait for you now.

Wow the above mentioned coaches are elaborate. Our small 2903 Bay Star 2015 is beautiful to us but in no way compares to what I just read. That's ok , we are not full timers, we just enjoy the outdoors and our Newmar. Happy Holidays

We ordered a DS 4369 on Nov. 18 from Midway RV in Grand Rapids MI. Selected the dinette with 2 recliners. Added a few specials such as cedar closet, toilets raised 2", leather dinette chairs (really reasonable), 3 extra puck lights, grab handles in bathrooms, Aquajet pump, 12vdc on dash (left) and a few extra recepticals. Dealer will raise head of bed 3" (acid reflux) and cut a door in the rear vanity for the CATS.

Expect delivery in late April I think. Don't really have a build date yet but do have a coach number.

How many days does everyone expect to allow for the transfer/training on day of pick up?

We'll be waiting in our 2002 DS in AZ for the winter. It's going to be a long winter.

Rich & Susan this sounds like a great coach. Can you give a little more detail on the upgraded interior selections and the custom cabinet in the rear bathroom? Thanks.

I like the dark colors but not for us if we spend time at Quartzsite and the temps go up. Too much heat gain.

We added a tower cabinet to the vanity in the rear bath and split the large mirror into two. Actually the Moutain Aire has something very similar. We however made the tower deeper in order to accommodate towel hooks and deleated the standard towel rings. We added two additional drawers in the pantry. We found the standard DS dinning chairs to be very uncomfortable and ultimately chose the chairs from the King Aire. The wallboard is from the Ventana and is the same throughout, the backsplash in the Kitchen and bath rooms are from the London Aire, floor tile from the Essex, window treatment from London Aire although DW is adding her own design to them. We also got the sleep number bed only because the mattress we were going to special oder would not fit. Things we passed on: solar prep, outside tv (just don't think it would be used 2 tv's is plenty!) freezer in storage bay, power drivers window, power tv antena. I'm still on the fence about AGM's as we had terrible luck with them on our boat and ended up going back to wet cell that lasted substantially longer.
This is one of the main reasons we chose a Newmar. Your coach is YOUR coach and not the same as the next. As we compaired different manufacturers, and there were two others we liked, the answer to any changes was "NO"! Newmar....? "Sure! We can do that! They have been fabulous to work with!

Really depends on your needs and how accommodating your dealership is. I'll start my delivery process on Monday January 5th and won't leave the dealership's campsite until Sunday the 11th. I'll do some day trips through that delivery week and adjust and tweak things as needed. Then I'll put 1,000 miles on the coach and return to the dealership for another visit to address whatever might have popped up while I was on the road. Hopefully all the new coach adjustments will be taken care of by the time I head south to Houston.

That 4369 is an awesome floorplan, hope the wait isn't too painful.

After Midway preps your coach they will spend a day going over it with you. In the past they would put you up in a campground just south of town for you to try everything out. That may have changed and you may just stay at the dealership. Not sure on that. Midway is a great dealer with a good reputation. They won't rush you. Congrats on your new coach!
