Special #1: Cabinets ILO Jackknife Sofa

Delete the jackknife sofa behind the passenger captain's chair and fill the void with basic cabinetry and countertops extended from the kitchen area, creating a larger kitchen space.


1:1 Sleeping-to-Seatbelt Ratio Required.
Newmar requires that for every sleeping position in the coach, there must be a corresponding seatbelt position.

This is not an issue for most floor plans but it is for bunk floor plans as eliminating the jackknife sofa makes you short one seatbelt position for all of your sleeping positions.

You can solve this issue by optioning in the theater seating, which eliminates the sleeping positions afforded by the hide-a-bed sofa opposite the jackknife sofa.

We're not sure that we'll actually like this and may end up wanting the 87" sofa. In which case, we'll purchase it from the parts department and install it ourselves, then sell the theater seating.

Special #2: Theater Seating ILO 87" Sofa

Replace the 87" hide-a-bed sofa with the 87" theater seating. This had to be done because of the complications introduced by Special #1.


Special #3: Reduce depth of kitchen OHC

We are fairly tall people. When standing in the kitchen, the depth of the OHC makes it difficult for us to reach the back of the counter space without crouching.


Special #4: Do not install bath hardware

Do not install towel racks/rails/holders, toilet paper holers or any other hardware which requires puncturing the sidewall vinyl. Deliver them loose with the unit and we will install them ourselves in a location of our choosing.


Special #5: Deeper & Flush OHC for dinette and theater seating

Make the dinette and theater seating OHC flush with each other, extending the depth of the shorter OHC as needed to achieve a straight and flush row of OHC all the way down the slide room.


Special #6: Vent convection oven to exterior of coach

Vent the back of the combination microwave/convection oven to the exterior of the coach instead of inside of the coach.


Special #7: Add an additional pullout drawer in kitchen pantry

Add an additional pullout drawer in the kitchen pantry for a total of 7


Special #8: New Aire style single-bowl kitchen sink

Replace the double-bowl kitchen sink with single-bowl kitchen sink from New Aire


Special #9: Low-profile splash guard

Use a low-profile splash guard in the kitchen


Special #10: Use DSDP4081 Rear Bath Layout ILO VTDP4236 Rear Bath Layout

If possible, use the 2020 DSDP 4081 rear bath layout ILO 2020 VTDP/DSDP 4326 rear bath layout


Special #11: Additional Seatbelts

Add four seatbelts to K555 Dinette booth


Special #12: Sanicon Turbo

Install a sanicon turbo system, hardplumbed in the same manner as as DSDP4326


Special #13: Omit clothes rod in top bunk

Do not install the clothes rod in the top bunk


Special #14: Add 110v outlet to pegboard area

Add a 110v outlet to the pegboard area in the storage bay


Special #15: Omit Appliance Garage

Do not install the appliance garage on the kitchen counter. Relocate appliance garage outlets to bottom of OHC.


Special 16: Undermount sink in mid-bath ILO vessel sink

Use undermount mid-ship sink ILO vessel sink. Delete the linen closet on top of counter. Install double doors in the base cabinets in place of linen closet and install a single door under the sink.


With 2020 VTDP models, Newmar is no longer offering curved counter cuts. This was an issue for the proposed undermount mid-ship sink as it uses a curved apron on the cabinet to cover the sink front, which in turn requires a curved counter cut to match the apron profile.

This was solved by asking Newmar to simply extend the counter depth by the couple of inches needed in order to allow for a straight apron, which would allow for a straight counter cut.

Special #17: MADP4543 Dresser ILO chest with overhung wardrobes

Install an MADP4543 style simple chest of drawers ILO the VTDP's chest with overhung wardrobes.

Note: The MADP window layout in the rear slide room was also required in order to faciliate this special.


Special 18: Omit Shower Seat

Do not install the shower seat in the rear bath shower


Special 19: Two 110v outlets under King bed

Install two 110v outlets (total of four sockets) directly into the floor under the king bed so that they are accessible when the bed is lifted.

Install 10.1" dash screens available on NADP+ lines ILO standard 6" screens


Special 21: Two 110v GFCI Outlets above rear bath sink

Install two 110v GFCI outlets (four sockets total) in the back wall above the rear bath sink, one in each left and right corner


Special 22: 110v Outlets ILO USB Outlets in Bunks

  1. Delete clothes rod
  2. In bottom half of wardrobe, add four, faced pullout drawers that run full depth of wardrobe ILO half-depth shelves
  3. In top half of wardrobe, ILO half depth shelves add 3x adjustable shelves that run full depth of wardrobe


Special 26: Materials

I highly encourage anyone purchasing a new unit to make the trip to Nappannee to visit Michelle Howard in their design studio. It's free and you can touch and feel every material, and know exactly what you're getting before making any commitments. You'd be very surprised by how different things look in person and how much they can differ even from the samples which dealers have
