Great looking coach! My cats will love the brake release on the spot they use to jump off the windshield onto my seat when it's parked. The ceiling air filters look the same as the KA, and I wonder if they are the type we use in our homes. Looks like they did away with the hot water exhaust pipe (one way or another), and I'm glad they did not make the basement door handles chrome (IMO they don't need to be highlighted).

I don't think they got rid of the Oasis exhaust pipe at all. I think it may have just gotten photoshopped out of the pictures.

Who picked out those colors on the Newmar site? DW don't like the dark colors or I would have picked up an '12. Notice the heavier IFS and larger tires on the front. Don't like the backslashes anymore. Just my opinion. If the price is right, I'd pick one up and flip mine. I wonder if you can flash the 500 HP ISX up to 600HP? Should be on a K3 maybe?

Ever have your pets step on the dump button when your fueling or at a rest stop?
Some fun.

You can always customize your paint and interior colors if you're doing a factory order.

I think the 500hp ISX 12 on the K2 is a cut-down model of the standard 600hp ISX, which is 15 liter (well, 14.7, I think). So it won't be an ECM change to get to 600hp.

Ain't no fun to get one if you can't start changing stuff. No fun just to drive around. Something has to break or be adjusted just to have something to do.If I ordered a new one with everything she likes, she'd still start changing things. (bed spread, curtains. See if she can overload the back closet so the doors won't shut).

Would that be the Texas two step?
