Yes Spartan Chassis, Thank you for the welcome. Look forward to finding out all I can. Was going to get a Monaco Signature but turned out to be in really rough shape. I actually lost a considerable deposit but this one is so immaculate I couldn’t pass it up. Paying the final tomorrow and current owner is extremely nice and will teach me the ins and outs.

Nice looking rig. I would drive it a little before adding a stabilizer.
One outher thing I would get a "all wheel" alignment done. Have it loaded like you are going on a trip.

What front suspension do you have? If it is IFS, then no steering stabilizer should be needed.

You should:

1. Contact Newmar to see if there are any outstanding recalls.
2. Have the front end aligned.

Congratulations on your new purchase. Once you get it I would find a nice large empty parking lot and measure how many lanes you'll need to do a complete, steering wheel fully turned, U Turn. My 2002 DSDP on a Spartan chassis took around 6 lanes since the turning angle was in the 40 degree mark from the factory. I would also find out exactly how much tail swing you have with it. Keep vehicle straight, lock wheel to either right or left and measure how far the tail end swings out. Most likely will be around two feet or so. Both of these will help you navigate making a full U turn as well as a tight section of road near a parked object or wall. We loved our 2002 Dutch Star and I'm sure you'll love the coach you just purchased as well.

Thanks so much. That is really good advice. There was a guy on YouTube who was showing how to put little sticker dots on the review mirrors to mark the “pivot points” and on the front windshield to mark were you sit in the lane. Definitely going to take it to a parking lot and practice. I have had several trucks and boats, which I know isn’t really even close to being the same, but am confident that, as long as I go slow and take my time, I will be good. I have also heard about certain navigation apps that you put your measurements in and it will take you down the correct roads.

I believe that guy was Barney from Lazydays in Tampa. Took his free class in 2006 when I got our first coach, 2002 DSDP. My wife went along and promised to learn how to drive an RV. That was the last time she ever drove an RV, even though she did good. Barney had a lot of great tips, and even the OLD PROS enjoyed his class.
