New DutchStar - Which TV antenna

We are ordering a new 2015 DutchStar 4369
The standard tv antenna is Winegard and there is an option for a Winegard powerlift.

Does anyone know which actual winegard antenna is used?
Is it the Sensar, The Roadstar, The Rayzar, or the newer Rayzar Automatic?

I am trying to find out if I need to aim the antenna and how that aiming takes place.

Turn direction by hand
Works fine

We use the Winegard Rayzar Automatic. It works much better than any other tv antenna we've had. No manual cranking, no turning until you've found the best reception. It does the work itself.

If you want the new Rayzar Automatic I think you will need to request a special order. The standard option list is usually a bit behind current technology.

You cannot order anymore 2015's from the factory. You can however still find them on the dealer lots. The 2016 models will be announced in about two weeks.

Frank, Our 2015 is already in the system, just trying to finalize our "Specials". We thought about waiting for 2016 but decided to take the plunge now.

Oh cool, grats! I took too long to sell the house, so we lost our window, but looking forward to the 2016's. I like the read up on the Rayzar, keep us posted please!
