Congratulations. That sounds like a really nice Ventana!

Bill, I'm waiting for the numbers on a 2019 43 ft. Dutch Star. I specked one out last week. I'll comment on the "discount" when I get the info. We're also going to price leftover 2018 MADP's.

From what I have heard, the dealers had to up their qty. of units. These units will be arriving sold or unsold. This is good for the buyer, especially if you wait a bit to see how the year goes. One thing I would opt for is the Spartan chassis. I cannot see why anyone would not opt “up” to the Spartan. This is coming from an owner of a 18 DS on a FL chassis. I’ve been trouble free, but imho, Spartan is a better choice. Since I have an 18, somewhat happy to see the price jump to help retain my future resale in four years.
Specials- Search the 18 specials list on this forum. Lots of really cool options that you will never find on brand E or T.

Good luck with your 2019 and safe travels.
Will I get my coach number and VIN prior to receiving the coach to be able to register for Newgle? I know with my Thor, I got the VIN a few weeks before it was manufactured.

Yes but not sold out this soon, this in the 2018’s there were open slots in November still, and they went fast. 2019 are all spoken for prior to production rollout.

I didn't think to ask if is a TMPS could be added as a special on a Ventana. Has anyone tried that? Not sure I can do another special even if it's possible without getting my manufacturing slot bumped.

That golden goose may just get diarrhea if gas and diesel prices continue to go up this year

Last year they said no to TMPS on our New Aire, so I doubt they will say yes this year on the Ventana.

I agree. The dealers buying up the production does not increase the number of retail buyers. Now they think they can ask more money for the product. Is all 2018 product sold off their lots? They are deluding themselves. Puffing themselves up will just decrease the demand.

There’s a difference between “buying” the production and “selling” the production.

That's only the ones who post on RV Trader. Add the 2250 2019's that are flying off the lot. Whoops, flying "onto" the lots.
