MNBob ... very sharp set up. Can't wait to take a closer look at the Hoots Gathering. Have not been in a 2014 model yet.

Bob --

Stunning! Thanks for the pics for all of us DS junkies just waiting for them!

I happen to love the frameless windows. I think you might possibly be right about the air flow -- but we use our bedroom crank window all the time and we get very adequate air flow out of it. If I had had the choice, I would have done everything I could have to talk my wife into the frameless windows on our '13. They are just hugely cool in my opinion.

Michelle Howard, our sales / tour guru at Newmar told us on our tour this week that well more than half of new Dutch Star sales have the frameless windows on the order sheets. I fully understand.

A real sense I get is that Newmar has made the sales decision to incorporate more and more of the Mountain Aire features on the Dutch Star. Things you could only get on MA are now available as options on DS. Frameless windows, the marble look counter top (which we got thanks to Steve and Lisa Morrision who saw it on an early '13 in Florida and we were wild about), the new soft mood lighting, the beautiful louvered wood panels under the ceiling vents, to name just a few.

On my factory tours this week (all three of them), I spent a lot of time in the Mountain Aire asking the question whether the extra 110K can be justified given all the MA changes that are now offered as options on DS. It would be hard to see how the MA price for '14 would be justified. The larger size tires, the more extensive paint process, the Girard hideaway awnings from the roof rails, all yes, but when you see all the wonderful things you got on your coach with the exact same chassis and engine, there is just no question that the Dutch Star is the best value for the money -- and really no question why Dutch Star is currently Newmar's number one selling model.

Yours is a beautiful, beautiful coach! You made the right decision pulling the trigger now with the coach that Midway made available to you instead of waiting. Sincerest congratulations.

Looking forward to seeing you, DW and coach at the Hoots Roost. Any questions you might have about any of the buttons or gizmos will, I am certain, get you copious treatment from the Hoots
