New Dutch Star 4018

Just picked up a new 2015 Dutch Star from Guaranty RV in Oregon. I would give them a 10 out of 10 for sales , delivery and service. This dealership compares to the service you get at Newmar. You get to talk to the Shop Manager and Techs whenever you want during the service process. Very professional employees and a Platinum Newmar Dealer. Ken Dingman was the salesman I used and he was with us Click image for larger version

Very nice. We just started the process of looking at upgrading and the 4018 is on our list. We are gong to the Newmar dealer here in Atlanta in a couple of weeks to check them out.

Our salesman and everyone else disappeared during our delivery. After all the papers were signed and the plates transferred from our old coach to the new one we just finished moving all our stuff started up the new one and drove away.

We're low maintenance, but these guys really take the cake. The sales manger almost made eye contact, but once he realized who we were he did an exit, stage right.

Got our 4018 with the same experience at Guaranty too!!

Congrats!! You'll love it.
Had a great buying experience as well at Guaranty with Dan McKaskill, ordering our 2015 Model 4018 coach at the 2014 Redmond FMCA rally. Had the chance to do a bunch of shake down trips and find a few bugs, and it was always a good experience. Currently we are on day 146 of our Homeless Trip 2016 waiting for our new home to be completed in OR!! Been coast to coast, currently sitting in Moab, UT. You will find this coach to be very comfortable and competent at all tasks. Its just as good driving with the ComfortSteer as it is parked with all the seating, full kitchen and other amenities.
Enjoy!! You choose very well!!

Congrats, David!

The DS4018 rocks, but I might be biased!

We delt with Mark Kelson/Dean Dorsey at Guaranty for several years over different Newmars. Even said YES to one DSDP left over a couple years ago. Then the next morning the DW got cold feet and nixed the deal. Too bad too as we ended up with the Magna we now have. Still feel bad for taking all that time from the salesmen then buying something else!
We also talked with another salesman, but he was so full of himself that we would never buy from him anyway
