Dutch Star 4369

Still doing my research. Can the drivers seat be placed all the way back for a tall driver (me) while the full wall slide is in? In other words can I drive the coach with seat all the way back?

That is a definite NO. Make sure you sit in one and determine if you can be comfortable.

Good Luck!

I agree....BUT.... The leg room is quite good from steering wheel to floor board. Its just that your legs stretch under the dash.

It has electric pedals, that can also be moved back. If you are over 6'6" MH's are hard to get used to.

In addition, watch out for the corner of the electronic's cabinet above the driver's seat. I've hit my head on that corner several times. LOL

I'm 6'7" and NEVER drive with the seat all the way back. Very comfortable driving too.

I'm 6'3" and 300 lbs and already cracked the wood trim by tilting back! Got comfortable without going further back by sitting a little higher...plenty of leg room. The problem is getting into the seat with wheel clearance...have to put my left leg over the seat and into the space on the left of the wheel like a straddle. Was very comfortable on the drive back from the factory to S. Fla.

Why didn't 'you just tilt the steering to its upright position. Makes a lot of room to sit in the drivers seat.

It does not clear very much in my 2017 DSDP in the up position...my thigh barely squeezes thru! I'm 6'3"
