Interior improvements include three wood choices, hidden hinges on all cabinetry, and new designer mitered cabinet doors with glazing. Other interior features include polished porcelain tile with glass inserts, solid surface countertops and a new backsplash design with cut-glass.

I love it - Wonder how many years I will have to wait until somebody trades this in and I can buy it used. Like that the living area and kitchen seem more separate. Love all the tile. Looks really roomy and nice.

I think I might start buying lottery tickets, chances of wining and owning that Dutch Star are about the same. Jim

Not enough windows for me

It's a beautiful coach but not nearly enough windows on the passenger (campsite/awning side) for me. I want to see my own campsite not the neighbors. I'm just too fussy...... But RVJimmy should be happy that I like the one we have the best ..."so far"

I bought the 3013 Dutch Star at the Louisville Rally

This was kind of weird reading these posts, but I'm the guy who bought the 2013 Display Coach at the rally. Not sure what got into me, but it seems like a nice enough coach. I sure didn't notice some things that I have to live with now. Like the lack of windows on the campside side!

As you already noticed KRose already posted that it didn't have enough passenger side windows. Oh well it's still a greaaat coach. Have fun and safe travels. Jim

You can always remedy that with a jig saw and metal cutting blades seriously, welcome to IRV2 and many happy and safe miles on the new MH. It is beautiful!
