We are looking for the wall cabinet and table in marknpeg picture. Our Ksdp only has a table and we need more room. Any one know of any used ones?

The euro booth had slide out drawers, but for US, they were a pain.

So, with that said, the Dutch Star, at least in the 4018, does not have a lot of kitchen storage, especially since Newmar makes their upper cabinets so tiny. Keep this in mind when trying to decide what might be best for your situation.
We are looking at the 4369, but also with a Dishwasher, so this is welcomed advice. We will be doing about 1/2 time in this, so I'd hate to give up substantial storage for more knee room. I'm no longer at the computer 12 hours a day, so I can make some concessions in that regard.

The pic I posted is a custom installation of a desk unit, not sure about that wall cabinet. I'm sure any cabinet maker could do the job easily. We'll be finding a good place to do the desk sometime this spring.

I can't wait for the day I don't have to be at the computer 12 hours a day! Still so much work to do, but we are growing so I guess that's a good problem to have.

freestanding table and chairs

We work from our DSDP. We got the freestanding table and chairs and specified that both the table and buffet cabinet have wooden tops instead of the usual Corian. We both like to work with two screens - a laptop and a monitor each. We have mounted the monitors to the table so we don't have to stow them to travel. We didn't want to drill holes in the table itself and so mounted the monitors to the table leaf. Since we wanted to leave it in for travel, we had the dealer cut down some of the width so we could leave the leaf in and still just barely get by the table with the slides in. All we have to do to travel is unplug the laptops and put them on the bed. The monitors and all cords and plugs are left in place so it's very quick and easy to set everything back up. We have a printer in the buffet cabinet and drilled a hole in the side of that cabinet so we could run ethernet cables and the printer cable between the computers and the cabinet. If you went wireless for internet and printer, you wouldn't have to do that. In between the bases of the two mounted monitors, we drilled another hole in the leaf that all the cords go down into and then out the end which keeps it all neater.
Two of the photos below show both laptops on the table which is how we work. Another shows the laptops off but the monitors still on and table pushed in for travel.

Worked a lot from motorhome before retiring. Used the passenger seat area in a gasser, this worked very well. But not so much in the DP due to also being the entry. In the DP worked at credenza primarily.

Using a headset while on the telephone is a biggie. Helps the DW not feel like she's in the meetings so much. The DW had a headset on the TV, allowing her to watch TV without either of us being impacted.

To clarify, I'm looking for the OE cabinet/table not your upgrade.
