Just bought our gas coach a few months back and not at all a happy camper. Mostly due to the fact that Workhorse Warranty Depots in Canada are far and few between and I have had some chassis problems. We have looked at a new Kountry Star 3509 with the 350 HP on the Spartan Chassis. We have no room to park the 39 foot models and we like the 3509 floorplan. The only thing I am worried about is the short 216 inch wheelbase. Can this be prone to porposing? I believe I have checked unit out pretty well but wondering if there is anything in the option list I should or should not have? This will be our first Newmar and still a little hesitant. Any comments will be welcome. Thanks

I've highlighted "westies" concerns with the possible purchase of a Newmar product...

Does anyone have any knowledge of the 3509 floor plan that would help him??

westies,
Are there roads, near the dealership, that would cause porposing? Consider test driving the coach and see for yourself. If you do this, try to ensure the coach fluids are as they would be when you use the coach. Your concern is valid, good luck.
