If you’ve been following us for very long, you know that our Newmar Mountain Aire is a featured performer in most of our videos.
When we started full-timing in 2003, we had never even been on board an RV before. We just knew it was something we wanted to do. We actually bought our first motorhome over the internet, sight-unseen! It was a left-over 2002 39′ Fleetwood Bounder Diesel, which seemed as though it would be perfect for the two or three years we planned to spend on the road. And it was.
When we decided, unexpectedly, to continue full-timing as an open-ended way of living, with no known end date, we still loved our Bounder, but we’d learned enough about our RVing needs (okay… wants) to have created a substantial wish list of upgrades.
Taking advantage of Newmar’s willingness to field considerable custom build requests, we ordered our 2005 coach right at the end of the model year.
Although we weren’t taking factory delivery, we were traveling through Nappanee at about the time our coach was due to be under construction. We brought the factory tour to a grinding halt when we happened to walk past our rig, literally fresh off the assembly line.
This spring, it will be 10 years since we took delivery of our Mountain Aire, but we still love it after all this time. So we’re especially honored that we’re being featured in the latest post on Newmar’s blog.
