2013 Winnebago Tour vs 2015 Newmar Dutch Star

Could someone tell me what the difference is between a Winnebago Tour and Newmar Dutch Star? Is there a difference in the performance of the Rigs or is it mainly bells and whistles? Thank you

I don't have either but have been researching DPs for a while. Biggest difference will probably be Comfort Drive from Newmar. I almost always read "will not buy another coach without it"

some also think the Oasis is better than Aqua-hot.

I shopped those two units for 2015/2016 so my info may not be true for 2013. I found both to be awesome coach's but the DS out spec's the Bago in some areas. The Bago will have a 15,600 front axle and the DS will have a 17K. Be advised the Bago is close to the limit the day it leaves the factory. The DS also has a side radiator vs rear with the Bago. The DS has three 15K AC/pumps while the Bago uses 13.5's. The DS uses 315 tires all around while I believe the Bago uses 285 (better ride). Then there is the comfort drive. Bago uses an in wall slide system on the smaller slides Newmar doesn't on the DS. Our favorite floor plan was in the Bago (42E) so we had to change our priorities a bit to end up with the DS.

The Winnebago 42E is a Journey model which is a step below the Tour. The features and appointments wouldn't compare to either the DS or the Tour.

Sorry I didn't get the floor plan nomenclature right but otherwise I am talking about the Tour with the FWS although I believe the info is the same for either floorplan.
