2017 Newmar Dutch Star 4018 Diesel Pusher

Last weekend we were able to pickup our custom ordered, 2017 Newmar Dutch Star 4018 diesel pusher. This is our first pusher, and wow what a difference! We loved our '09 Fleetwood Southwind, but the DSDP is on a whole other level.

Here she is:

(pardon the mess, we were still settling in)

And my favorite seat in the house:

My boy Hemi enjoys the smooth ride:

Old and new:

Picking it up tonight. Had the window creaking and awning colors fixed. Also blacked out the wheels and took most of the badges off.

Beautiful coach. Looks like you and the dog are feeling right at home. I will have to think about those blacked rims for awhile.

That's one thing about Newmar, all are "custom ordered" either by the dealer for stock or by the customer. We ordered two and they changed a lot of things in then for us. That was one of the "draws" for a Newmar along with the quality. We had them remove walls and doors in the last one as well as substitute a vanity and counter tops from MA's in our DSDP. Nice to work with and great quality.

Shots w/ the awnings out (well, not the door-side living room awning, since the big awnings were out over it anyway):

My old D'max is still looking good too.
