At Newmar, we not only love building world-class RVs, we love the RV lifestyle. Countless Newmar employees – including Newmar President Matt Miller – enjoy covering thousands of miles in their own coaches each and every year. And while it can be a lot of fun to travel from coast to coast with little more than a map, the rise of the internet has made it possible to enhance just about any journey using reviews, photos and other tips and tricks shared by fellow RVers.
Unfortunately, we struggled to find websites where RV travelers can interact and exchange photos and information safely and easily. As RV enthusiasts, we wanted to build an online destination where RV owners could join together and share their favorite destinations, from parks and landmarks to campgrounds and restaurants. So we decided to create GoNewmar.com, a user-friendly website designed for RVers, by RVers.
With GoNewmar.com not only can you share your open-road adventures with your fellow travelers, you can win great prizes at the same time! Read on to learn how it works…
Newmar has long been known for providing RV buyers with a wide range of choices and options. Selecting a Class A motor coach is a big deal, and we want you, our customer, to hit the road in a coach that you feel is tailored to your specific wants, needs and preferences.
With that in mind, Newmar Corporation works hard to bring you the industry’s best shopping materials, from detailed product brochures and online model overviews to 360º interior views and video walkthroughs that take you through each and every Newmar model.
Nevertheless, it can still be difficult to decide how to outfit your next motor coach. That’s why we’re thrilled to tell you about our latest easy-to-use shopping resource, the Newmar Build-a-Coach tool. With Build-a-Coach, you can assemble your coach your way, from the exterior paint finish to features and options. Let’s get started…
Previously, we spoke with Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation about the importance of a custom-built chassis to your overall RVing experience, as well as the advantages a custom chassis offers over a one-size-fits-all application.
To learn more about these benefits, we contacted the team at Spartan Chassis. Spartan Chassis is a world leader in the design, engineering and flexible production of chassis and components that consistently deliver superior performance, exceptional safety ratings and technological innovations. Both the 2015 Essex and King Aire luxury coaches come standard with a Spartan chassis.
Newmar Corporation is happy to announce a new partnership that will allow us to show our appreciation for the brave men and women enlisted in our nation’s armed forces.
For every coach we retail in 2015, Newmar will make a contribution to Tents for Troops, an organization that works with campgrounds and RV parks throughout the United States and Canada to provide free accommodations to active military members.
To learn more, we spoke with Charlie Curry, founder of Tents for Troops and owner of the Toutle River RV Resort in Castle Rock, Washington.

Have you ever wondered what qualifies a person as “old?” Many say it’s the arrival of a certain age. Others simply claim old age begins when our first grandbaby is born. Still, some believe we should consider ourselves “old” after we develop certain physical attributes. Of course, we all grow older, but becoming “old” isn’t something that is inevitable or forced upon us, as many choose to believe. It comes down to our choices and how we decide to live as the years pass us by.
Staying active is the key to aging well and remaining healthy and on the road for a long, long time. There are all sorts of opportunities to stay active, even if you live in your RV fulltime. Yet it can be way too easy to relax the day away in a lawn chair, watching the activity around you instead of engaging in it. But by doing so, you’re missing out, letting your body grow older in the process.
Below, I have included some ways you can incorporate more activity into your busy RV lifestyle that will help you to look younger, feel healthier and improve your overall quality of life.
Cathy Lea, editor of GoodRVFood.com, is a long-time RVer who loves to cook as much as she loves to travel. She uses GoodRVFood.com to provide RV travelers with simple recipe ideas, most of which can be prepared using just a stove top, camp stove or grill.
I love traveling part-time in my motorhome. I also love to eat out, but in order to keep costs down and avoid going hungry during extended stays in my favorite state and national parks, I have to develop plenty of tasty recipes. Below, I’ve shared a few of my best easy-to-prepare recipes, none of which require the use of an oven.
One of the most overlooked aspects of a high-quality motor coach is the chassis. As the foundation of your motorhome, a well-made, expertly-designed chassis plays an important role in how much – or how little – you enjoy traveling from coast-to-coast in your Class A RV.
Given our commitment to industry-leading quality and superior engineering, it should come as no surprise that we at Newmar choose to work with the world’s best to equip each of our diesel and luxury coaches with a custom-built chassis. After all, a custom chassis offers several benefits compared to a one-size-fits-all application.
To learn more about these benefits, we spoke with Bryan Henke, Manager of Product Marketing for Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation. A subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation manufactures premium chassis that are renowned for their exceptional ride and handling characteristics, tight turning radius and extraordinary dependability. The 2015 Ventana LE, Ventana, Dutch Star, Mountain Aire and London Aire come standard with a Freightliner Custom Chassis, while one is an option of the 2015 Essex.
Recently, we spoke with Gary Lewis, Founder of RV Basic Training, an organization established to “teach RV owners everything they need to know to enjoy a safe, comfortable and incident-free RV driving experience.”
Based in Southern California, RV Basic Training offers motorhome enthusiasts located across the United States with expert instruction through the RV Boot Camp program. RV Boot Camp sends an experienced instructor to you so that you can learn in the comfort of your own coach.
Below, Gary talks about what led up to the establishment of RV Basic Training before explaining the ten rules all new RVers should know before hitting the road in 2015.
At Newmar, our greatest validation comes from listening to our customers tell us how thrilled they are with the coaches we work so hard to design, engineer and build. Still, it’s nice to hear (or in most cases, read) positive feedback provided by the industry experts who test and review our motorhomes for the purpose of informing RV enthusiasts the world over.
So, we were more than happy to see Newmar motor coaches on the cover of both Family Motor Coaching Magazine and Motorhome Magazine for February 2015. Family Motor Coaching Magazine took an in-depth look at the all-new 2015 London Aire, while Motorhome Magazine delivered a thorough review of the 2015 Dutch Star.
Recently, we spoke with Tony Hermann, Newmar Warranty Manager and Carl Snyder, Newmar Customer Service Manager and asked them, “What should a Newmar customer do if they have a question about their warranty or need help filing a claim?” Both gentlemen shared plenty of information meant to assist our customers, including what makes Newmar’s Service and Warranty department second to none.
