I was surprised to see the ad for it in yesterday. I think it’s good to have another high end builder in that segment. Looking forward to seeing it in detail.

If it is done right it will be magnificent. Imagine engine choices of a L9 or X12, 4x4 on air suspension, moose grill like the logging trucks, 25 ton wench via the tranny PTO, easy access to the engine for service, side cooling fan into the radiator problems solved, etc.

My question is why? Don’t they have enough trouble building the ones that already have?

That was kind of my thought. I bought Newmar and am really surprised at the number of issues we have had and many are not component failures but workmanship. This is of course not to mention the down time. I will say the Newmar and the dealer have really been good about repairs.

My first thought about their Super C was the first of it's kind with air ride and a full wall slide. I guess the buyers in the first couple of years will be the Beta Testers which means down time.

My thoughts exactly, I watched a video once and it said “we are not interested in quantity just quality” ok that theory it’s out the window.

That picture in the article is not the Newmar. They haven't released photos of it yet.

Oh, I thought someone had taking a picture, you know if Newmar is “reinventing” the supper C we may all be in for a good surprise I hope that thing in the picture is huge.

My thoughts as well. I thought they were pretty well maxed out for production.
