This is true, we have a LA with adaptive cruise control. It will kill power to engine then engine brake kicks in by then car is pass the radar zone and throttle is applied. This all happens within 2-3 minutes.

Can't say that I am a fan of the name change of the V-LE to Kountry Star. I know there is history there, but glad I have the old name.....

Better hide this from my wife....We pick up our 2019 New Aire in a month and with the king bed, bigger engine, etc. in the 2020 what if she wants to wait!?

Be curious to see the pricing. I will need that as a defense mechanism to not wait for a 2020!

One thing about the New Aire we really liked was its smaller size so to get the many of the upgrades one would have to go longer.

Trade offs on everything I suppose.

Actually, upon further review, I am still perfectly fine with our 2019 NA 3343 choice as all of those updates on the 2020 are nice, but not deal breakers for me versus our 2019. I just want a coach that is well built on a "good" day at the factory!

The added MSRP/price with the larger engine, chassis, options that are no longer options, etc. will be pretty significant. Some of those updates will add a pretty penny to each NA...and that helps my self-esteem!

Didn't care for the front end change of the 2019 DSDP, now they changed a perfect front end again on the MADP and I don't like the change. That's a good thing.

I think they nailed the New Aire. It's going to be a very popular year for it.

Can't wait to see the pics of the VTDSDP - one confused brand now!

I wonder how long the page will be up until it is taken down and this thread is deleted as if it never happened. My guess is by Tuesday next week all of this evidence will join the JFK files.

Anyone seen 007? My biggest fear is the bees are coming out in spring.

Would like to see new cockpit and steering wheel w/controls in the Ventana. Our 19 starts production on the 1st of May, already got e-mail to dealer asking what is price difference on 2020 versus the 19. It does not make that much difference, but the cockpit is one main concern, the TV would be nice, and asking about those too. Don't expect any answers soon, because pricing may not be set yet, not sure dealer wants to have the hassle of changing order. Would like the Samsung TV's though. .

I know how you feel. We are just a few weeks behind you for pick up from the factory.

Me thinks this is why this sort of information is supposed to remain secret until after all the 2019s have been delivered.

The Ventana frontend looks like a generator slide is now available.

If you really wanted a dedicated desk in the traditional sense, I’d wonder if one could add a special to delete the jackknife sofa and add a desk there. I’d think they could just extend the base cabinets from the kitchen towards the front and set up a desk there, keeping the televator rising out of the back of the desk. They already do this for the 4311 fireplace setup. Essentially, just delete that fireplace and leave it open so you’ve got a place to tuck your legs when sitting there. You’d be giving up the jackknife for a desk, but the space has got to come from somewhere unless you want it to rise out of the floor. Also, you could also hookup your computer to that TV and go blind in an instant!

As I'm getting into woodworking this may be something I may make on my own (ha, we'll see how that pans out). The problem with a computer other than a laptop on the desk in the jack-knife sofa area is it blocks the TV. My engineering vision would be a televator for the computer so it lowers into the desk. It would be a box like compartment so when it's full down the desk is flat across the surface, no holes to drop things into. Then the monitor "box" raises up for use, similar to the televator concept but for a computer.
