• Autumn is here and winter is just around the corner. On the Newmar campus in Nappanee, Indiana, we mark the coming of the winter season in various ways not the least of which is our service parking lot gets bigger, or is it just that there are fewer units parked there so it looks bigger.

    For some reason our mobile customers don’t want to have any service work done in northern Indiana when there’s snow, ice and cold temps in the...

  • Mid-Summer greetings from sun dappled Nappanee….

    Summer has definitely arrived here in north central Indiana.  The heat and humidity are rising slowly, and the corn has reached the point where you can’t see above it while driving the country roads.  Most everything here is green and lush right now since the mix of rain & sun has been just about perfect this summer.  It’s working out well for the farmers… and as keeper of my yard, I...

  • Late Spring Greetings from Soggy Nappanee…Hello again from scenic north central Indiana.  Here’s hoping this writing finds each of you out and about with your units,  enjoying great weather and camaraderie!

    During our seemingly endless winter confinement this year, my wife and I became addicts to the Food Network.  It’s a veritable cornucopia of cooking ideas; who would know you could do so many things with ginger?  Or that the best...

  • Spring Greetings from Nappanee….

    At last, warm weather and some sunshine have returned to our corner of the Hoosier state.  There's just nothing like those first few days of spring, when the temps break into the 60's and 70's for the first time.  It's nothing short of invigorating for those of us who have been cooped up in our homes for the winter.

    Long ago I got in the habit in the spring of giving my cars a good thorough...

  • Early Spring Greetings from the Nappanee….

    Not so long ago, "idle time" in the RV realm meant quiet, relaxing moments spent watching sunsets or depleting your favorite fishing spot of inventory.  When someone talks to you about "idle time" now around the campfire, they might just be talking about something else…. 

    With the introduction of the new "ultra low sulfur diesel fuels" and lower emissions "After treatment" systems on...

  • Mid-Winter Greetings from Nappanee…

    Hello again from the frozen, then thawed, then flooded, then dry, and now snowy little hamlet of Nappanee.  I'm not too sure what the deal is with the weather this year with all its volatility, but I can say for sure that camping season cannot come too soon for me!

    As sure as the weather will change every 15 minutes here in Indiana, so too it seems that technology will change almost as often...

  • Holiday Greetings from Chilly Nappanee….

    By now you have probably heard of the F3 Tornado that struck the peaceful little hamlet of Nappanee on October 18.  Through God's grace and mercy Newmar Corporation and its campus was spared any damage as the track of the tornado took it through the south and east sides of town. Others weren't as fortunate as we were, however, as over 250 homes and businesses suffered varying degrees of damage,...

  • Late Fall Greetings from the Heartland…. 

    Hello again from Nappanee!  Here's hoping this writing finds you enjoying the beautiful colors and crisp mornings this time of year brings.  The camp fires are all toastier, the hot chocolate is flowing, and the wardrobes change from cotton to cardigan.  Before you know it we'll be roasting chestnuts on an open fire and Jack Frost will be nipping at our noses… but let's not get ahead of...
