Sorry, the quality could have been better but they had it pretty well hidden, I was lucky to get what I got.

BTW. it is the only one that exists so far, a test mule. I was told that production won't begin until mid-April or so.
Also, in addition to having laid off 125 employees, Newmar manufacturing is on a 3 day work week. Service is working 4 to 5 depending on the work load.

Thanks, John.

However, I'm a little disappointed, as there is very little change from the '08 DSDP on the outside.

Looks like minor changes to the caps.

p.s. Doesn't look highline, either. http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo.../icon_wink.gif

posting from my phone excuse any errors.


Ive seen some exterior anx interior pics of the 09 4330. I will try and post a link tonight once i get permission from the owner as i havent sern it anywhere else yet.

My thoughts are:

Front cap changes are very blah

New cabinets are available that i dont care for but others might. They are the flat glossy type which im not a fan of. Not sure what the others look like.

Different counters look hot

Fabrics look similar and window treatments look a little nicer

Polished porclin tile looks nice as most of us already know

Some floor plan. Changes on the 4330 are seen in the pics. Sink and fridge swap places and the rear bath appears to have the shower in a different spot.

Dash looked very similar

Paint schemes looked nicer to me as the 08's IMO looked too Zebra to me


I'll try and find the link and post it once we are home in a few hours.

I can't copy and paste but managed to email Bob the link so maybe he can put it up in the meantime. Its a public site so sharing shouldn't be an issue.

Link to more photos from Aridon

Not sure where the rumor got started this was ever going to be a high line coach, but after seeing the pics of the Dutch Aire interior, it's definitely not a high line coach....

Regrettably, if this is Newmar's "bright star" accomplishment for '09, it looks like more of the same....
Certainly nothing new and innovative about the design concepts.

I like the interior of the DADP, looks good.

It looks like the DSDP and DADP should have the front caps swapped.

The DSDP has a MADP look to it, and with a lot of imagination, the DADP has the headlight look of the LADB.

I'm thinking you've got a pretty active imagination.... http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/eek5.gif

Pictures came from kneal. I want to make sure he gets credit for them.

I also agree the changed are bleh for the most part. IMO its foolish of Newmar to downgrade the dutch star from last year to replace the Kountey Star only to come back with a Dutch Aire. Not sure i follow the logic there especially since they essentially just swapped name plates on the units as all the models got similar upgrades and the new Aire is anything but highline.

As for prices they are also essentially the or slightly higher.

Im not suprised in the slightest i figured incremental change was most likely. Kountry star err i mean the new dutch star does improve things by adding the extra foot and king beds but seriously why downgrade the dutch star instead of just upgrading the kountry star? Doesnt seem to make sense considering they are still hsve the same # of lines, same warranty and same price point.

Not sure what they are thinking.

Bob,
Wait til you see the new 09 Tiffin Allegro Bus.......I bet you'll like it! http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo.../icon_wink.gif

Lug_Nut 03-19-2008 05:25 PM

The driver window sure looks like the hand slide type. This is a surprise as I thought it was to be an upgraded DSDP.
Definately, questionable on the high line thing.
