I wonder what they would charge just for those wood grain dash panels for an upgrade. I really like them, but I won't give an exorbitant price for them.

Anyone know??

Boowho??

The manufacturer charged $175 for the wood grain dash. Would think that you should be able to find them for about the same or less.

I have an 09 Charleston and the dash gauges look identical, I would be interested in a "wood grain" upgrade as well, maybe a few orders and we all could save......looks very nice!

I would love to get the wood grain dash parts too. Maybe one of us can contact Andy in the parts dept to find out. I plan to try to contact him about it soon. He has been very accomodating on all of my other recent requests (upgraded batteries.... custom dinette cushions etc)
Maybe we can do an informal tally here to see how many might really want them.

You could probably just order it through your local dealer. My buddy just bought a 2014 and for some reason it didn't come with the wood grain dash. He called the dealer and they ordered him one. They will install it at no cost to him.

I'm sure we would have to pay for a wood grain, but they do look awesome.

I'll stick to ordering from the FR parts dept. They are much more attentive and responsive than the dealer I bought the coach from who seems uninterested in customer service. Since I learned to work with the FR parts dept I have been a happy camper.

I know it's been said but Andy does a great job supporting us with parts. I would second going direct to FR to get the part.

I'm in if anybody want's to head up the operation. I'm thinking maybe $150 max, and less if we can pull it off. If the dealer sticker showed $175, then you know that FR has maybe half of that for their cost.

We could probably have them drop-shipped from FR's supplier. Need to make sure there is no difference in them for the last few model years too.

Boowho??

I would be also. If anyone has contacted Andy let me know otherwise I will call him Monday and get the fit for different years and cost plus shipping. Also will check if there are different wood grains available.
