New Owner of a 1996 Mountain Aire 3760CA

Hello everyone, not exactly new here as I first registered back in 2006. at the time I had a 1974 Winnebago Indian (which I still have). I just recently bought a 1996 Newmar Mountain Aire 3760CA that is fully loaded. Perfect shape and everything works great. I love how the bathroom is separate from the bedroom. In fact, I love everything about it so far. It appears to have most (if not all) of the options that were available for that year, according to the brochure on the Newmar site. I'm still unsure of the roofing, can't tell if it is rubber or the optional fiberglass. I called Newmar but their records don't go back that far (or so I was told). Only has 53353 miles on it and the genset (Onan 6.5) only had 93 hours on it, starts and runs great. Even still had the video tape from the factory still in it and all the manuals. The only thing bad is that the graphics on the side are weather checked, can they be removed? how hard to do? I plan to retire and full-time in the next 16 months to 2 years. Am now in the process of liquidating my house and selling my horses (2). Will be traveling with my Boxer, Cash (that's short for Cassius Clay, for those of you that are old enough to remember who that is LOL). I've been reading lots here and the info has been great. I'd never heard of Newmar prior to seeing this one for sale. I kept going back to look, take pictures, and compare it to others I looked at, kept coming back to the Newmar. I think I have a winner.

Welcome to the Newmar forum Afubar and Newmar family.
Your coach does look in good shape much like my 98 KS & 99 MA gas.
During those years the coach's did not change that much except for options and most were on Ford chassis.
I can give you some links if you have not found to at least a 96 MA and general information that you may be able to relate to yours.
These links can be found in Quick Tips & Mods second line down may even have your pacific coach number if you enter it.
Enjoy your new coach and enjoy the forum.

If you mean the second wheel well, that's the Tag Axle. It is a secondary rear axle (not powered) to help support the length and weight of a longer, heavier coach.

Newmar makes a nice coach - congratulations Afubar!

Hi Afubar,
Welcome to the Newmar family. As to the decals, as best I know they can be removed only by a professional shop who knows about motor coaches. Also, by the time they are removed and replaced, the cost needs to be compared to repainting the entire coach. From a labor point of view it is more efficient to just sand everything down to the fiberglass and start from scratch. Repainted coaches from vendors (in the Nappanee, Indiana area) do outstanding work.

Take a look at the Newmar Kountry Klub (NKK) at http://www.newmarkountryklub.com/ . It is a Klub for Newmar coach owners. Nobody knows your coach like someone who owns one just like yours.

Thanks 007, I's already discovered those links, but appreciate the info.

Not sure what you mean about the back tires. The second set is as Nick-B mention, tag axle. I made replacing all tires as a condition of purchase, most of the tires had the 96 year code on them, good rubber, bad date. the newest one had 01 date code. Now they all have 0311 date codes.

Gary KD - thanks, think I'll just leave the decals alone. All the rest of the coach is pristine.
