Why are so many Newmar King Aires at Spartan?

Ok, so I知 killing time in the Spartan overnight lot, waiting for my service tomorrow. I知 bored, so counting coaches. There are 11 coaches here - 1 Entegra Anthem, 1 Entegra Aspire (mine), 3 Kountry Aires, 1 Mountain Aire, and 5 King Aires. Which leads me wonder, is there an issue with Spartan and Newmar? The King Aires all look like new ones...

Oops, a Dutch Star just pulled in...

" 3 Kountry Aires " ??? I'm guessing you see more Spartan Newmars because Newmar builds more coaches than does EC.

Maybe the Newmar owners are maintenance anal. Not all owners are maintenance aware.

Why so many Newmars/King Airs?

Oops, Kountry Star. And another Dutch Star just pulled in. I wondered about production rate, but 5 King Aire vs 2 EC... and don稚 most Newmars have Freightliner? Anyway, I知 not implying anything, just observing and questioning.

It wasn't that long ago that Newmar ONLY used Spartan.

You're asking the wrong group this question. How about asking the owners of those coaches, then let us know.

Maybe they're going to a Spartan Maintenance class?

We have a winner!

I have one of the King Aires.

I, along with the owners of another King Aire, a Dutch Star and an Anthem are attending a training class. Great class.

Newmar wanted the best chassis they could get for their very best coach and that would be a Spartan. But almost all Newmar diesel owners can have the best chassis too by ordering/buying their coach with a Spartan chassis.
