The XLT may evolve over a few years to Dutch Star status, but for now, it's not even close.

The Ventana is it's competition in the 43' tag models.

I've got to go along with some earlier posts and say that the Berk tag (XLT) comparison is more in line with the Ventana than the Dutch Star. This is my comparison basis
2016 Newmar Ventana 4037, Class A - Diesel RV For Sale in Orlando-Winter Garden, Florida | Independence RV 8736 | RVT.com - 108625 Moving the Berk up in price range will make for greater scrutiny. One of the strong points of the Berk to many of us was the price to standard amenities ratio. I wonder what the new strategy will be? Anyway, I'm still extremely interested in this new offering.
