2018 Dutch Star 4326 Build :: Input Needed!

Getting a great deal at Independence RV for one of the last remaining 2018 builds. No major changes for 2019 planned except for a price increase makes it seem like a good time to go new.

We’ve got our Newmar provides options for the build selected and will be selected interior finishes soon.

Where I could use some help is in the “Special Features” department. I’ve spent countless hours researching this forum and have some great ideas but looking for some more input. Things you can’t live without or things that just work better, like undercount sinks instead of sit in top bowls, or added outlets by driver seat or omitting the clock, etc.

Here is the Special list so far:

Kitchen window 60x12
Black dash
King air wood plank tile
White under mount lav bowl
King air countertops w polish
Vent micro thru exterior wall
Add outlets in the bunks
Add additional 12v outlets near driver seat
Add storage cubby in bunk area
Omit clock
Additional LED strip on driver side roof line (looks sick at night)
Color changing LED strips (if possible)


Thanks so much! It’s because of you folks we are now leaning heavily towards a new build.

When we had a 2016 Dutch Star on order, these were our approved specials. We eventually had to cancel the order, but we got a new 2015 with many of the same options.

Congrats! Independence RV was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process of ordering our Bay Star last year.

Good list. It will be interesting to see if they approve the kitchen window. Don't know that I have ever see a 12x60 window of any kind on a Newmar.

It’s on the higher end luxury coaches and plenty of the Dutch stars have them installed.

Sounds great. Has that list been approved or a wish list.

Who indicated not major changes for 2019?

Wish list based on others who have built their coaches and other coaches‘ build sheets from dealers we’ve looked at.

Two reputable dealers I’ve talked w indicated no ‘major’ changes... but who knows. They could just be saying that to sell their last remaining builds...

Dealer show starting on April 16 will see soon enough for the 2019's.

I was surprised on the lights on the driver side roof line was approved.

We ordered a 2018 DS 4326, it just arrived at our dealer (in Canada) and we are picking it up on Friday the 23rd of March...very excited. The specials we ordered (over and above the item available as listed options) were:
- The wardrobe right beside the half bath, added 5 shelves to use as a second pantry

- Ordered the extendable dinette with two folding chairs - chairs to be covered with matching leather of the dinette and couch

- Had the headboard fabric to be the matching leather (dinette and couch)

- remove swags from bathrooms and bedroom (person choice)

It was a long wait (ordered Aug 5th) but now that its right around the corner we are very excited.

Cheers, Mike
