*Iím sure a lot of the RV trader listings are already sold, or at least they were last year when I called on several.
*I also believe that the Newmar number has been pushed to 2500 for 2019.
*I agree that Fuel costs could really effect the market, @ $3.80 per gallon it runs $570 + DEF to go 9,750 miles. How many will drop out at $4.80 per gallon?

Here's what I found, although I know there are others.

2018 DS 4369 on order what are good specials ?


In addition I would add:
Consider the kitchen window from the Newaire is you want more incoming light


If you think you might need it, run a HDMI cable from the AV center to the bedroom. Others have run CAT 6.


Consider add the tilt bed option. This will give you more access to the back bath in the 4369, assuming the 19 floorplan is the same. When you add this option they will say that you loose the side windows. You then add them back as a special.


I like to cook, so I added an extra circuit for the cooktop and replaced the dual unit (which shares power) with two single units.



Many others available and I'm sure I've missed some.


Good luck, this is the fun stuff.

I think they've stopped running HDMI. They are now running CAT cable instead of HDMI for the standard cabling.

I also just found out that DirecTV is stopping SD programming next April, so I just went ahead and added an DirecTV HD sat dish to my order.

Yes they have stopped in the DS for sure not sure about anything else. So do they have a converter at each end?

Stuart, it looks like you dropped a zero on your fuel cost. I only wish I could do 9,750 miles for $570.

How are people getting build pictures? Is there someone at Newmar I can get them from? Since it's supposed to ship to dealer in mid August, I assume that means it will start production around Aug 1st, give or take.

Should I just ask dealer for updates, or is there someone at Newmar that can give me updates, let me know when VIN is assigned, etc?

Considering a Ventana 4037 and didn't realize Omniview NS 360 was available.
Do you know the MSRP of the system? This could be a gutter saver, just say not my better days....

About the same as a special on Ventana, plus you have to get the Xcite/rand McNally option, which is another 2k or so.

It seems there is always an angle these day

Did the dealers ever pull this before?

Time will tell it always does
