I would be interested if the price is within reason and fits my 2012.

Same for my 2011. I would guess they are all the same but worth finding out. Count me in if doing a tally.

I'm in also if the price is right.

Does anyone know if this dash is standard on the 2014?

It's an option. I had it added on mine when I ordered the coach.

I highly suspect those panels haven't changed a bit in several years. Re-tooling the whole internal dashboard layout would be pretty expensive, I'd imagine.

Anyhow, once again, I'm in if $$$ and the logistics of getting them to us works.

Boowho??

Phil, If you want to take the lead on this, I for one would be most appreciative. Let me know if I can help in any way.

The cost of the wood grain dash if 465.00 plus shipping. There are 5 pieces that make op the wood grain option. They are comparable on all 2009 and newer Berkshire. 2008 would be in a unit by unit basis depending on what radio you have. and you should contact Andy at FR to see if It will work. I questioned the cost and was reminded that we already have dash panel on our MH. The price as a option is only 265 or so but this is for all new panels. I will past the info from his e mail in a second. That has contact info and is including prices per panel if you thought about only doing part of it.

Phil,
It was nice speaking with you today. Below you will find the part numbers and prices for the wood grain dash bezels. I try to keep a set in stock. I appreciate you taking the lead with this. If others are interested please have them contact me either via email or phone. I have also included Isaac’s contact information.
Please note the prices are subject to change. I do not anticipate an increase anytime soon, however that could happen.


Andy- 574-522-1747 athompson@foretriverinc.com
or
Isaac-574-296-9641 imontgomery@forestriverinc.com

Thank you,
Andy

Sorry this didn't copy well. the total price is 465.15 and shipping would vary. I would guess that there would be some lead time as Andy indicated there was only one in stock at this time. Also I wanted to clarify that this is only for 2009 and newer. 2008 and older on a case by case depending on which radio you have. It best to have you Vin number handy when ordering. I haven't decided what to do yet. 465 is a bit much for me so there is still one in stock for the first person to contact Andy.

Hi Phil
Thanks for taking the lead and being the bird dog on this. With shipping it will come to close to $500 and that is a little too rich for me for a purely cosmetic item. It was good to know the pricing anyway.

Thanks again and if you are still going to St Augustine, see you there

We need to decide what we're doing soon it's almost winter. I think I will sign up for the rally and plan around from there. We have never been to FL so really want to explore the first year. We are not planing to make reservations. I hope we don't get stuck camping at WallMart.

I agree. I will spend the 600 but I want it to do something. More comfort or more function. As a 250 dollar option I would do it for sure. We priced out new driver and passenger seats when at Elkhart at Brad and Halls and I think I will just put the money into that than wood grain bezels. I should start a new thread but you have a RB what do you think of replacing the couch with two recliners. Other than getting rid if the dinette we can't get a longer couch. My feet hang off the end.

I would spend some $ for the woodgrain dash parts for sure but with the logic being that it is a $265 option on new (as a substitute replacement for what we have as stock) but costing us $465 or so that would imply that the plain pieces we have cost $200 which is a little tough to believe. Hmmm... $350 would have been a more tempting and realistic price for the woodgrain parts both by fairness and logic.

Edit: otherwise it should only be a $65 upgrade on a new coach!

Most parts from a dealer or direct form factory are going have a hefty mark up. I would think this is because of stocking parts having a parts department is all expensive. I don't know all the costs involved but I imagine they make some good profit percentage on parts. I know when I bought parts for a chevy van we had I found parts on line for almost half the price the dealer charged. Of course GM does not sell direct. Not saying your wrong that is a good markup.

Agreed and being in retaiI I understand. And I will still pay for service and a GOOD markup but not for a GREAT markup
