I have a ‘19 Dutch Star coming in a few weeks. Discounting was same as ‘18. I opted to go for the ‘19.

Question answered today and just like I thought 360 on xite, back/right/left on dedicated panel.

All wood trim interesting, looks really nice on your coach. Didn't even know that was possible.

We thought the Cherry was beautiful with the Muslin interior, however, we didn't like the lack of contrast with the Lagoon interior we ordered. However, being we only looked at pictures of the Lagoon interior and never saw the Newport wood (just a 2" square sample) we were just guessing, but believe we will be happy with Newport after seeing yours.

I have an 18 DS with 360 cameras and the two systems are totally separate and the original back camera is back and both sides. The 360 is an additional 4 cameras. I did modified the 360 system to not switch to the turning side like the org camera.

I meant to copy off that post where you described doing that, because I definitely want to do the same. Was it just clipping a signaling wire or the like? I figure I'll want the 360 cam to stay on my chosen view all the time and then let the left hand monitor cover the left/right/reverse functions.

Ditto. In the Ventana, however, the MSRP on the Cherry increased by nearly 50% (or maybe just over 50%). I think it went from something like $2300 to $3600 or MSRP.

The good news is since I was getting the 4369 and multiple options that are now standard, the annual price increase was pretty well offset by new standard items. I think 100% of the options that they made standard were options I was getting anyway.

Yes that is correct, two control wires at the 360 cam unit behind radio area, simple. You can carefully remove the dash screws for the center panel and tilt it on to your knee, I put masking tape around the area of the fixed dash prior to removal. Let me know if you have any questions when you get in to it. Stuart

Do they unplug or do you cut them? I need to remember the masking idea to make sure I don't scratch.

Short of problems in QC, I'm tentatively setup for a three day PDI at coachlight (after they spend three days prepping it) starting on the 15th. In addition, I'll probably spend at least one more night, two if I find any problems, over the weekend at the Coachlight RV park after the PDI. If anything crops up over the weekend, then I'll get with a tech on Monday, before heading home.

Then I can start the adventures of being a Ventana/Spartan beta tester, as I will be one of the first handful produced I would imagine.

Exciting times, good luck and enjoy. Can’t wait to hear your report on the Spartan.

This weekend I'm going to head down to Gilley's and spend some time on the mechanical bull to get some training in just in case my non IFS Spartan gives as wild a ride as your guy's IFS versions...

I like the stainless steel garage doors. Are they going to be left or painted with the coach? I have never seen a coach left with them unpainted.
