Since this happened to a Dutch Star, I thought I would post here. I'm sure it will be okay since we occasionally see a Newmar owner over on the Winnie forum

We saw this Dutch Star recently in Alaska, and then in the Yukon. I don't know what happened to cause the damage and unfortunately we didn't get a chance to ask the owner.

It doesn't look like fresh damage to me, so maybe he is waiting until he returns to the lower 48 for a permanent fix, or this could be the permanent fix - who knows.

John, I agree it doesn't appear to be "fresh" and I'm wondering as well if he's waiting to get back perhaps to Nappanee...



By the way my good friend, YOU ARE WELCOME ANYWHERE you venture on this site!!
I know you spend more time in the Winnebago forum,but I'm ecstatic to see you venturing around!!

We saw him in Whitehorse in early
June, met hin at the follies, he said he had damaged the coach a few days earlier down by Skagway and that he was going it take it to the factory when he got back. The coach was an '03 with a lot of aluminum strips on it for repair.

Yes John as Bob has said your welcomed on this Newmar site or any others on irv2 and so is everyone else, there have been times when people have asked why I was in their forum and I politely informed them there are no restrictions on irv2 members as to what forum they are to post.

Thanks for the pic and for all the pics of your trip they and your write ups sure bring back memories of my time spent in Alaska. Enjoy the trip and when you see snow on the mountain peaks you better start moving south within two weeks.
The fall leafs will shine in the deep blue skys.

There might be a place or two in Anchorage that could do the repairs but that looks like a factory job.

Thanks 007 and Bob for the howdy!

It really is time to head south - these parks are emptying out and lots of things will be closing for the season shortly. When we left Tok, AK a few days ago it had just snowed at the higher elevations and gave the mountains a nice white cap.

We are off to Haines tomorrow and leave on the ferry Sept 7 for Prince Rupert, BC.

That Dutch Star driver was swatting a bee and he lost control and ran off the road and hit a building. Tore it up rather badly.

Looks like a bear took a bite.
Will be good as new when the factory gets through.
