Newmar Super Star Super C RV – Detailed Tour & Impressions from RVX

Newmar Super Star Super C RV – Detailed Tour & Impressions from RVX

We attended the RVX trade show in Salt Lake City last week to host Newmar’s live broadcast, during which we revealed their very first entry into the Super C market – The Super Star!

After the broadcast, we heard from lots of you who said “More Super Star!” So without further ado, here is our considerably more detailed tour of this beautiful new rig.

If you missed our original live tour during the show, you can watch the re-broadcast on the RVIA website here:

Also, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we’ve received since the live broadcast went out:

  • What chassis is it built on? A Freightliner M106 chassis
  • What’s the size of the engine? Cummins 350HP diesel with 1,150 lb-ft of torque
  • What transmission is used on the Super Star? The Allison 3200
  • What are the tank capacities?
    • Fuel: 100 gallons
    • Fresh Water: 150 gallons
    • Gray Tank: 60 gallons
    • Black Tank: 40 gallons
    • Propane: 32 gallons
  • What will the standard and optional items be for heating water and interior heat? Propane gas furnace with ducted heat and a 10 gallon gas/electric water heater will be standard. There will be an option for the Oasis brand heating and hot water system will be available when production begins.
  • What is the overall length and wheelbase for the 37′ and 40′ models? TBD and subject to change. Protypes shown at RVX may not refect the final wheelbase.
  • Will a Tire Pressure Monitoring System be standard and/or an option? TPMS will not be an available feature on the Super Star, but may be available on the Supreme Aire.
  • How about Adaptive Cruise Control? Adaptive cruise will also not be available on the Super Star.

Does anyone know what the build time is on a custom order? Im also interested in a detailed description of all the options and prices if someone has it.

Sorry we don't know the specific option prices or current build times, but you can get a good idea of base price for the floorplan you have in mind on the "Build Your Newmar Coach" page here: https://www.newmarcorp.com/shopping-tools/build-a-motorcoach/ You can also download a brochure, and locate a dealer in the process. They're the ones who can provide specific option prices, as well as current build times.

Well after the news yesterday of Winnebago buying Newmar I am curious of yalls thoughts. I’m sure y’all don’t remember me but I’m a long time fan and have bought 2 Newmar in the past because of yalls love for your rig. I actually yesterday started the process of buying a brand new one because I feel they are top notch. Anyhow now I am worried about pulling that trigger because, yes Winnebago is a great company, I just don’t want to not have the support down the road like Newmar offers currently. Anyhow yalls thoughts??

Jonathan:

According to early news reports, Newmar will continue to operate as an independent brand under the Winnebago umbrella, with headquarters remaining in Nappanee, IN. But even as an independent brand, Newmar will surely be subject to Winnebago's corporate "best practices" policies and procedures for success in the RV industry. So to answer your concerns, I think it's best to ask the question, "Would you be happy purchasing a Winnebago, based upon that company's customer service?"

Beyond your personal question, my surprise at the sale of Newmar is "why now?" The RV industry as a whole is in recession, with sales down 20% or more across the board this year over last. As an indicator, the industry has always been a canary on the coal mine when it comes to predicting the economy 1-2 years out, and things are not looking good, However, Newmar sales and performance have remained solid, even in the latest slowdown. I think Winnebago saw the acquisition as a great opportunity to snatch a brand with an obvious high-end, high quality reputation, and I sincerely believe they have no intention of breaking that mold.

That said, what should we look forward to as Newmar owners?

From a product standpoint, you should expect to see a Sprinter-based Newmar hit the road sooner rather than later. Fair enough, but personally, I would hate to see a broadening or cheapening of the Newmar line-up to reflect Winnebago's. That was Newmar in the 1990's, and I see no reason to go backwards by diminishing the brand.

Back to the a customer service issue, I think Newmar has a lot to gain from Winnebago's better practices. Don't get me wrong, Newmar does a lot of CS things very well, but there's always room for improvement; Newmar is no exception. The reverse is also true: Newmar has a premier dealer network that is a huge value-add for Winnebago. As such, I would expect there to be a renegotiation of Newmar's dealer agreements to include offering some of Winnebago's line-up in place of other off-brands (again, read Sprinter).

So where does this leaves us? Winnebago has deep pockets, and they obviously see the value of owning a premier RV brand both now and over the longer term. My hope is Newmar will gain some much needed flexibility in their offerings along with a revitalization of their customer service model, and that Winnebago will learn what it really takes to build/sell/support a premier high-end product.

Thank you for providing what I needed to know.

I was planning to buy a new New Aire because they have the Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Avoidance and a TPMS. Now I know I will.

Why can't these safety items be made standard features on ALL COACHES?

I looked forward to watching your videos regarding the premier of the Newmar Super C, and I was not disappointed. Congrats on an excellent presentation (as always). The fact that Newmar asked you to do the reveal says a lot about your expanding industry presence.

I wanted to tell you that the new Super C is not the only innovative departure Newmar has taken from a more traditional RV product line. In 2001 Newmar introduced the original NewAire 2801 Classic, a 29 foot diesel pusher that was many years ahead of its time. Only 40-odd units were produced over a two year production cycle, and we are fortunate enough to own one!

If you or your fans would like to learn more about our Original Newmar NewAire, you can check it out on a website dedicated to its preservation: www.TomAndPeg.com

Hi Tom & Peg! Thanks so much for your kind words, and for sharing your New Aire! We've only seen one of them in person, and were totally blown away by it. If only Newmar could get back to that forward-thinking design with the NEW New Aire!

On the Super Star, why not put air bags in the front suspension like the A pushers have in the rear and in front?
