Dutch Star Exterior color options?

Looking to go to a bunk model and like the layout of the Dutch Star 4326. Only issue is the limited colors for the exterior according to the website? Only 3? Is that correct? Thanks.

You can specify any Newmar color you want through a special request. The only restriction is that you must still work within the guidelines of the current graphics.

Custom paint runs $1796 and as said you must keep the same graphics layout in 4 color areas. Skin, A, B, and C. You must use Newmar paint colors. Here is an example of a stock 2018 layout[ATTACH]

i have a 4326 that is en route to my dealer....go here and you can see pics of it....

Who's At Camp Newmar?

those are my custom colors....page 173 in the thread describes them.....

you can talk to michelle howard in the design center and see all the options available....

you also can customize the inside....bringing in flooring and fabrics from other lines...

i even had them put a ventana booth in mine, so it can be made into a sleeping area as well.....the DS comfort booth does not break down into a sleeping area....

lots of flexibility....one of the many things that drew me to newmar....and to order vs. buy off the lot.....

look around on the lots....i know north trail brings in coaches that are not stock colors...don't see a 4326 that way now, but i am sure they have more coming in.....and so do other dealers, like steinbring and independence.....check around on the web.....

but i would call and ask if they have any 4326's coming in that are custom....the higher volume dealers around the country.....

and as far as an order is concerned, if you can get a dealer to give you an existing order slot, maybe your wait is 4-5 months....if you can't then i bet 7-8 months......those are guesses though...

I think willipaul is close on time of an order. I would think you would need to find a dealer unit that is at least 3 months out to make changes. At this point I'm not even sure you can order an 18 at all that isn't in a dealer pipeline. If your ready I wouldn't wait to long. Let us know if you need more help. Stuart

saw a post here on IRV2 (i think on the hershey show thread) that said RV one sold 64 units during the show. i gotta believe that most, if not all, of those order slots were previously committed slots that RV one had purchased from newmar in advance of the show. so when you hear that the company is delivering out to such and such a date, there are spots that are committed to well in advance....

also, based on the pictures sent to me by a friend that did attend the show, the RV one show specials on dutch stars that were advertised were priced around 18-19% off MSRP. this was for 4018, 4362, and 4327 floor plans (that was on the picture he sent). i imagine that leaves room for further negotiation on whatever the buyer has for a trade in, and haggle room on final price.....i always marvel at the "show special" pricing concept.....

anyways, another interesting point was that in these show special ad boards at the show, all three coaches were being advertised as being on a spartan chassis....when the dealer puts in an order, for a DS or higher line unit, they have to specify the chassis....apparently there is alot of interest, at least from this dealer anyways, in the spartan chassis for a DS.....

Spartan chassis for Dutch Star's is the choice most orders are being made with. But Spartan is the choice for MA, LA and Essex. We all know the King Aire all come on Spartan chassis.

Midway in Grand Rapids also orders some spec units, often with nicely chosen customizations including colors.

My .02 - order it exactly how you want it, inside & out.
