I have been told the Mountainaire 4301 DP rides rough. Anyone ever had any bad experiences with the ride of The Mountainaire on a Spartan chasis. I am thinking about ordering one in the near future. I test drove a 2005 model and it seemed to handle and ride very good. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

The rough ride problem is only with the 2005 Dutch Star not the Mtn. Aire. I have a 2005 DSDP and the ride is terrible to the point of attached items breaking loose and falling when driving. Have appointment with Newmar Oct 17 to see what can be done. One of the posters on Yahoo newmarowners stated that Newmar, Spartan and the frontend supplier were to have a meeting to solve this problem on DSDP's. There have been several post on the newmarowners sitr about this but not on the Mtn. Aire all seem satisfied

Thanks Waterboy, your reply makes me feel more at ease. We'll probably go ahead and order the 4301. Thanks again

We have a 2005 Mountain Aire 4303 4 slide and have no complaints whatsoever with the ride (or with any other component either). This coach is by far the best we have ever owned. It was order and when it was delivered to us, 100% of the coached worked....a very rare occurrence.
