9 RV Features and Options You Must Consider

All of us at Newmar believe in the continuous evolution of the RV lifestyle, and we recognize that much of our success depends on our ability to consistently improve the way you experience our products.

That’s why we’re constantly working to develop new customer-driven innovations, using the feedback we receive in-person, online and at rallies and shows across the country to guide our next set of breakthroughs.

We were the first to offer power slideouts back in 1990. A few years later, we introduced the Comfort Drive steering system. And for the 2016 model year, we engineered the STAR Foundation, a high-strength superstructure built with steel.

What’s more, our 2017 lineup of Gas, Diesel and Luxury coaches is packed with useful features and intuitive technology that exists to make your time on the road more enjoyable than you ever thought possible. The following list represents our favorite “must-have” motorhome features:

Exterior TV

Awesome for tailgating, exterior-mounted Sony® LED TVs with speakers are now available on the 2017 Bay Star and Canyon Star gas models. Full exterior entertainment centers, which include Bluetooth-compatible sound bars, are available on all 2017 Diesel and Luxury-diesel models.

Where to stay, what to eat, and so much more!

Dropdown bunk bed

Easy to operate and perfect for hosting friends and family, select floor plans on Gas models offer dropdown bunk beds that release using an electric latch.

Large residential shower

Freshen up and enjoy plenty of extra space in one of our new 50″x34″ residential showers. Representing the largest shower enclosure we’ve ever offered, 50″x34″ residential showers are available on all 2017 Luxury-diesel models.

Designer fabrics

If it’s the ultimate look you’re after, begin your search with the 2017 King Aire, which offers four exclusive interior décor selections from the Ralph Lauren® Home Collection.

Passenger footrest with workstation

Stay comfortable, be productive, or just lie back and relax. Bay Star, Canyon Star and all 2017 Diesel and Luxury-diesel models provide you with a passenger-seat footrest and workstation.

Residential refrigerator

Feel at home with the addition of a 19.7-cubic foot Whirlpool® refrigerator, which is standard on all 2017 Luxury-diesel models and available on all Diesel models, as well as the 2017 Canyon Star gas coach.

Stacked washer & dryer

Stop collecting quarters and start skipping the laundromat with a stacked Whirlpool® washer & dryer, which comes standard on the 2017 Essex and King Aire, and is available on London Aire, Mountain Aire, all Diesel models, and the 2017 Canyon Star gas coach.

Slideouts with full tile

Ditch carpeting and upgrade to full tile inside each and every slideout, something we call “More Floor,” which can be found inside of the 2017 Dutch Star and all Luxury-diesel models.


Life’s too short to spend washing dishes, which is why the 2017 Dutch Star, Mountain Aire, London Aire, and Essex all offer a drawer-mounted Fisher and Paykel® dishwasher, while one is standard inside King Aire.
