Newmar sets the specifications they want to each chassis manufacture and for any coach they offer with a chassis choice, you will find that the specifications are about identical. It appears you have picked up on a lot of the misinformation on this forum regarding the whole Spartan VS FL thing. You will get people with a London Aire for example trying to tell you why Spartan is better for this reason or that reason when in fact, they have no chassis choice at all on the LA. Each line of Newmar has vastly different chassis and you cannot compare a Ventana with a DS or a DS with a LA or KA. Those comparisons are almost worthless IMO and to say the ride of their LA is superior to the DS is worthless as well. It may very well ride better, but it's due to reasons that you have no control over. In the DS, you do have a choice but as I said before, I can't imagine any difference more than shock selection by the manufactures that would cause any ride difference between the two because the rest of the chassis is very similar-both have IFS, both use air bags, both have solid rear axles, both are almost identical in weight. Don't lose sleep over this-your coach will be awesome with either chassis.
Thanks Howard... My wife and I really appreciate the time you've taken with your responses. We slept well last night! Our best to you...

Thank you, yes it’s the Bayshore interior, with the wall boards from Dali.
Also it was special ordered with ultra leather in the Dali color.
