Yes there are a couple hold outs, but we really like our rig, why would I want to spend more money
I can work on this one and have saved a bunch of
money.

We live in SW Fl and there are not too many hills
or mts to overcome, so..

Yep, a gasser here. We love ours and we full time in it.

Will move up to a DP in 2011 or may get one of the UFO's if they turn out as good as I think that they will.

I'll consider a Diesel chassis:
- When I start driving more than 30K miles per year.
- When my wife tells me to (that's the power of VETO).

Thank you,Thank you gentleman for a while I thought I was in a DP malady not hearing any complaints from my fellow GASSERS.
Although my MH is at rest right now plan to back her out tommorow to turn around to put out main slide, there is Christmas wrapping to do like we have done for years so the kids didn't know Santa might have come early.
Put the heat on for wife and we wrap.
So a early MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone on the NEWMAR Forum and may you all have a safe and trouble free New Year.

To; ALL GASSERS<

It has been said, " If you don't want a DIESEL PUSHER, don't drive one".

The costs of DP's are coming down and the costs of gassers keep going up because the manufacturers are trying to DUPLICATE the DP's.

If you haven't owned a DP or driven one extensively, You really don't know the advantages.

Does a DP cost more??

The answer is measured over years, miles, comfort and dependability.

I haven't seen any over the road gassers hauling frieght. Has anyone else.

Just sharing info, no offense meant.

Thanks=== AIME==== AJBJRVERS===

Bak in 04 when I bought my gasser I was asked why I didn't get a DP. My answer was I didn't have the extra 80 or 90k that they wanted. I looked at the cost to maintain, fuel, total size and a few other things.

Why size? For one thing I would have a hard time getting a 40 footer in my drive. Yes I could have made the drive bigger and I would have had to make the RV pad larger.

Now that I have sold all but 2 acres and I am living in my RV inside my RV Building I would not have room to build my storage area, park my cars and have my shop. IE - I would have to give up something or make the building bigger at additional cost.

That's why every RV has its place and no one RV is any better than another-it all depends on ones needs and desires. Although we traded from Gas to Diesel it had nothing to do with buying diesel for the sake of diesel it was merely a floor plan decision-were still waiting to see if the diesel is a fine a unit as the gas one was! Merry Xmas to all!

Not trying to get into a Gas and Diesel debate here, what ever choice fits is up to the RVer, was just looking for some gassers. I was just feeling lonely.
We all have one thing in common, we are NEWMAR OWNERS HERE.

Love the layout of our 2005 Kountry Star 37' Gasser. Now if Workhorse can just get repair parts for my air intake system...5 weeks and still counting, with another potential 5 weeks wait in front of me...will love to get on the road and head south before spring arrives.
With a DP I would not have the intake issues, but then I would also be $25-$30K poorer too. Not to mention that gasoline is again cheaper than diesel.
Oh well, think I will have some more home made peanut brittle to sooth my soul.

Sorry to hear your still waiting for water problem to be fixed. Back in SEPT I thought it was with a better fit filter in air box.
I have eliminated all of that filter system with a CAI from Brazels. You will find pics in DriVers upgrades and in some of my install.
Hope they get your right parts soon.
