What's going on at the factory? Over 30 coaches here. We're here to finalize changes on our order.

How about some pictures?

I'm dying to get to see the factory, won't be until later in the year as the schedule is too full...

I know you can't take "inside" pictures, but maybe some of the area would be really nice to show other folks what to expect...Maybe the front of the service building, etc.

I did this on the Winnebago forum when I owned my Vectra and it was well received...

Only 30 coaches there? I guess there is a sale in the next state. Newmar is normally much busier than 30 or so. 100 or so, okay. They do a great job, that's why many other are there. Last time I was there, July 17th this year, there was no room at the inn. Many of the taken sites may be new deliveries. Do not think for a minute that this represents a problem. This is the best service you are or may get with any mobile vehicle.

Hi! If you have a camera and are taking pics, we would love for you to find our new one. It is scheduled to leave the factory Wed. It is a 2007 MADP 4528. It has a rear bath so there will be a window behind the bedroom slides. It is green and we added a window in the kitchen ( passengers side ) that is not on the other MADP's. The coaches are usually parked near the service area or down the road on the right past where they service the Essex. Thanks, Paul

Paul, just received your message, already been to factory but may be able to swing by later to look for your coach. In regards to the 45 coaches at the factory-they are there for repairs, etc.
Just finished the tour, etc. and have some pics(we were allowed to take pictures but not of the Amish-which ones were the Amish-the ones with beards but no beard if they were single?

They are building from one to three Essexs a day and we found serial #654-must be a lot of money floating around.

Will try to publish a picture with more to come. Dave

Dave, Hi! If you get a chance great. Our new MADP also has no rear ladder. We deleted it. Great Pics. Thanks, Paul

Smart move Paul....deleting the ladder wasn't even an option for me as the Essex doesn't come with one,but it's a MUCH CLEANER look!!

Dave, Thanks. I have no idea. If possible look for a green 2007 Mountain Aire 4528 (not many green ones made) No rear ladder, extra window over kitchen on passengers side. Girard awnings. Supposed to be shipped on Wed? If not in the main area maybe down the street behind the buildings past where they service Essex. They hold them there for delevery. Thankyou very much for the extra effort!!

One of those Essexes is ours! We are awaiting delivery of a 4508 Palazzo Cafe, which is about to leave the factory after final We are testing. We wanted to have it spend a lot of time in final test so we didn't have the problems Rebelsbeach has had!

Thanks for the pictures! It makes us even more excited.

Road Pilot, WELCOME to iRV2!!
We're glad you found us and we hope you spend a lot of time here, especially in the Newmar Owner's Forum...I can "fix" your screen name to read "Newmar Owner's Forum Member" when you're all ready for it...

I'm not sure there's any "test" that could've found the fan coming off the shaft as the coach was not only driven from Nappanee to Wilmington, NC to the dealer, but then I drove it from Wilmington to Virginia Beach and then on to Sevierville,TN over a two day period without event..
It wasn't until we left Sevierville that the issue of the fan reared it's head and that was some 2,000 miles or more on the coach.

The issue with my HWH jacks is one that we're not sure of,as it's hard to duplicate...I am going to try jack pads and see if that solves the issue on stone lots...

GOOD LUCK with your 4508 and we're waiting for pictures!!
