Well we did it, bought a 2020 DS4369!

Hi All,

Well, after a couple of years of indecision, we put our 2014 Allegro Bus 45LP up for sale at our local dealer last week, and yesterday, purchased a 2020 DS4369 from Tom Lindstrom that he had just gotten in! We didn't have time to wait for a custom order this time, so we found one that he had ordered to stock, and decided to go for it.

After a lot of research between the new Tiffins, Entegras, and Newmars, along with lots of help and private messages from many of you on this board, we knew that we really wanted the Newmar! We are very excited and pick it up from Tom next Tuesday, and then we will start a 2 week shakedown cruise.

Having this great active Newmar forum as a resource is a real advantage too!

Regards,

Congratulations on the new coach Tad.
We were in the same boat and looked at the same brands as you before we decided it was Newmar or nothing.
I hope you are as happy with your new Newmar and Tom and his team as we have been. First class operation all the way. Scotty will do you right on the walk through next Tuesday. Get lots of rest Monday night because your head will be spinning by the end of the day Tuesday from information overload.
Good luck and travel safe.
Cheers,
Mike

Congrats on the new coach. Met with Tom several times but wanted to order one which he didn't have. He is a great guy.

Yes he is Tad. I had no idea I would make great friends when we bought our coach from him. One of the family. Welcome and enjoy.

Thanks guys, we are very excited to finally be in the Newmar camp.

After all the issues we have had with our Tiffin, we hope for a far less problematic coach! Although I will say that our coach never once left us stranded on the side of the road, and Tiffin helped us with free parts long after the warranty ended.

Thanks again to all those that PM'd me will their different coach experiences and opinions.

Tad

PS for those that care, it is a Spartan. I had wanted to try the Freightliner with the new integrated driver controls, but Tom Lindstrom said that the Spartans are easier to sell!

Hi - Congratulations! Glad you found one you wanted. I'm still trying to wear out my old Tiffin tee shirts myself, so welcome aboard. You won't be disappointed.
