A dream home you can drive, Essex delivers unbound luxury. The Newmar STAR Foundation – our modern steel superstructure – sits at the base of every 2017 Essex, and a 600-horsepower Cummins® ISX diesel engine is standard equipment. New for 2017, Essex lets you choose either a Freightliner® SL or Spartan® K3 tag axle chassis at no extra cost.
Either way, electronic stability control, full disc brakes and side-view cameras are included, as is the “ultimate RV driving experience” – Comfort Drive™ with Passive Steer technology. Inside, Essex is unlike anything else in its class, presenting you with new high-polish porcelain plank tile and an available 50” x 34” residential shower.
Leading-edge amenities define the 2017 Essex, and it starts in the cockpit. There you will find everything from Villa® Ultrafabrics heated front seats and a Rand McNally® navigation system, to an 11-speaker custom-tuned JBL® audio system. There’s even a memory function for the pedals, steering column and side mirrors that enables you to recall your preferred settings with the push of a button.
Choose the available Spartan® K3 chassis and enjoy exceptional towed-vehicle stopping power from the standard auxiliary braking system. When it comes to fun in the sun, look to the dual Girard® Nova side awnings, Dometic® pull-out freezer and 12.5 kW Cummins® Onan generator. Want more? Opt for the available exterior entertainment center or side-mounted hammock.
Taking Luxury A Step Further
Step up to Essex and leave the rest behind. The latest appliances from the world’s most trusted names are inside, including a 19.7 Cf. Whirlpool® refrigerator, Delta® Touch20® faucet and Fisher® & Paykel dishwasher.
Glazed hardwood cabinetry comes decorated with full-overlay doors and an available high-gloss finish, while the beaded glass mosaic backsplash sparkles below custom LED lighting.
A Bold Statement
More than a claim, excellence is an achievement that is earned. Every inch of the 2017 Essex is crafted to reflect this notion, beginning with a hand-carved wood accent wall and porcelain plank tile that expands to cover each slideout. In fact, there is not a single detail inside Essex that you will find within any other coach.
A Sony® LED TV, Bose® CineMate home theater system and a Blu-ray/DVD player let you experience your favorite movies like never before, and a standard Sony® tablet means you can control electronics, lighting and more from the comfort of an available side-folding Hide-a-Bed sofa.
Complemented by a standard Sleep Number® adjustable mattress, the 2017 Essex houses a King bed that comes finished by an Ultra Leather headboard.
Extraordinary picture and sound is emitted by a 40” Sony® LED TV and Bose® Solo surround sound system, while wall-mounted touch screens let you adjust coach settings with ease. What’s more, wireless charging stations atop each nightstand means no more tangled wires or crowded outlets.
Feel at ease inside of a gorgeous 40” x 32” residential shower, complete with tile walls, a teak wood seat and Fresca® multi-spray panel. An available 50” x 34” shower space offers industry-leading size, and Cathedral Ceiling adds six inches of headroom.
Want to get ready in the morning without tripping over your better half? Essex grants you a twin-sink vanity, full-length mirror and separate medicine cabinets. Even better, a Whirlpool® stacked washer and dryer is standard for 2017.
The 2017 Essex features a custom-tuned, JBL® premium cockpit audio system with a 360-watt DSP amplifier and 11 speakersincluding subwoofer.
