Canyon Star handicap coach

Looks like we will own a Canyon Star in the next couple of weeks. My wife has reached the point where it is necessary for her to travel in an wheelchair and the Canyon Star appears to fit the requirements to make her comfortable. This will be our 4th MH and the only gasoline powered we have owned. In fact, I have never been inn a Canyon Star - we met folks a few years back in Pigeon Forge with one and they showed us how the lift easily put a large man and the wheel chair inside within a couple of minutes.
I was asked yesterday about the generator (7000 Onan) if it was propane or gasoline driven. I could not answer that - we have not seen the coach yet. I started going back over photographs and see it has a large propane tank about the size of the one on our present Damon Essence.
Is it possible that Newmar would power a genset with propane? This is a 2018 coach.

Not likely with a tank of gasoline sitting there.

You can call Newmar and check with them.

Welcome to Newmar.
Most Gen now are powered by gas in a gas MH, you may have less problems with a gas Gen.

I would try to get to see a Canyon Star if at all possible before you commit. We tried one out at the factory and chose the Ventana instead.

Our 2017 CS has a gas generator. It is Onan. Runs very smoothly. We do have LP for the stove and hot water. The generator is definitely gas.
