First New Coach!!

After being on here for several years and learning and researching and looking we finally bought a new to us 2008 Newmar Dutch Star 4354! We picked it up yesterday! We are so excited to FINALLY have a coach to call our own! We spent our first night in a Camping World, lol-, but today we get our hitch put on and the truck ready to tow!

We are heading to Isle of Iberia RV Park today for the weekend before heading in for some service. Then we are making a slow crawl to Colorado and Glacier NP, out to Spokane, WA and then another slow crawl back to WI! As long as everything goes ok, that is!

Thank you all for the welcomes and compliments!!

Thank you!

We love it- big trucks go by us, don't even notice them! There is no pull or push from them at all. We were out on a gusty day last week and knew there was wind but there was not much going on with us. No white knuckling, no real concern. The comfort drive was one of the main reasons we wanted a Newmar, that and the quality. It's in getting some routine maintenance right now before we take off. The owner of the shop has been around for a long time and reinforced the fact that buying Newmar was buying quality and we did a good job finding ours
