We paid 4k for our paint and it will be delivered this week. One thing to note is that it added two weeks for a total of close to 3 months from the original order. The LED awning lights are now standard and you can have the optional propane outlet and Aussie Grill added. These were items that I didn't see in the literature.

Just wondering. Can anyone FR or otherwise know the official white color match for the standard white w/decals. Making an inquiry here, in case any of us, me included want to buy the white to touch up road rash marks on the cab part as it ages.

I have a white 2013 and was wondering if anyone else has the issue with the coach body color versus the compartment door colors? Mine seem to fade and it is quite noticeable so the dealer replaced the back compartment door but while better, it is still noticeable.

I understand they also have the front swival seats now too ... Oh well, I'm still happy with mine. I did the passenger seat to make it swival, changed the Magnadyne to a top of the line Kenwood (best $$ spent); and am getting the sway bar installed either next week or the week after. So ... I'm good. Do like the idea of the awning lights and the grill, though! Enjoy

One thing to consider, but most people don't care, is if you have to replace anything (trim, doors, or anything else), back to the paint shop you go, and hopefully they'll do a great job. Had our main door replaced in Indiana, now stripes aren't quite as perfect as they were, and have an obvious tape line around the door. Any sealant used has to be clear, or a matched color if your lucky enough to find some. You hope you never have to change anything, but sealing and maintenance is inevitable, and you'll have to be really careful in order to keep it looking good. White is more forgiving. Darker colors attract a lot of heat, so take it for what its worth, go with the lighter colors if your in the HOT south like we are. Our Tiffin was mostly black. Absolutely beautiful, but you know how black vehicles attract heat. Just my 2 cents, and something to think about. I like and dislike the paint. If you don't mind the extra expense and it makes you smile, go for it.

I would be interested in knowing how the sway bar affects the unit and what brand and cost. Very interested. Also, what is the Magnadyne?

Magnadyne is the in dash radio/nav/DVD player that comes with the unit

I hope that the newer Magnadynes are better than what I got last year. I've finally ordered a new Kenwood to replace my magnadyne as I just don't like it and it doesn't seem to work as well as it should.

Find someone with a Kenwood and play with it. I have their top of the line model in my toad - I hate it. The reception is great, but the user interface is not very user friendly - at least for me. It is my wife's daily driver, and I can't remember from one trip to the other how to do some functions - it's not intuitive at all. There's a combination of buttons and touch screen. Some icons are too small to activate while driving without taking eyes off the road for several seconds. Maybe a top of the line stereo store would have several radios that you can play with.

I usually agree with what Taylorgso says - but not this time. Here is a picture of the Kenwood unit I replaced our Magnadyne with. It is Very user friendly - it's the best system I have (or have had) in any of my cars. That includes top of the line corvettes as well as your everyday cars. Henry, if you got this one, you will love it! IMHO
