Slide out a few fiber boards to lay on, pull the rigs under the Awning, start welding and I'm the Hero of the day!

And I live in the Country and power goes out a lot, so I wired my Coach Generator to where I can power my house off it too! Has come in handy about 3 times in 8 years. I also have a back up generator in the garage so it was just a matter of making an output on the Coach Generator to plug in, in place of the House Generator. Should it go down on my too!

And then there was that time we were boondocking and my Co Worker and her Husband parked next to us and their generator went down on a really hot day. She was fighing Cancer at the time and needed her A.C. So I ran my genny and kept both of us cool.

I'm not ready for the Rocking Chair just yet.
But I am retired.
But, that's just me.
Your experiences may differ.

that's creative!

AllStar!!

The Legacy Newmar AllStar Toy Haulers (Mid-Engine Diesel - See Posts #10, #55, and #235) came in 3 garage set-ups. They are rare so snagging photos is difficult -BUT- thanks to another member, JeffAZ we found this '09 - 4257 (already sold from a dealer in the watermark).

Newmar AllStar

I love the salon layout!

But, is it just me or is the floor plan forward of the bath almost exactly like the Outlaw 3611/37LS - just swap where the entry door is?

Split bath is good for families. The exterior garage passenger door is on the street side(?) and that step from/to the interior garage door is a WHOPPER!

I sure like the way the kitchen space is set up, seems like a smidge extra useful cabinet and counter space compared to the Outlaw.

That Allstar rig is very interesting. I wish they would bring back something similar.

So the diesel engine is accessed thru the floor in front of the fridge? Is that where you would check and fill the oil and trans. fluid? Surely there is another access area!?

Is the garage 12 ft deep? And it looks like the garage drop down door ramp is flat like the OTL, not angled like the C. Star? I like that.

Have started going thru this thread so wanted to post a quick question and subscribe.

We looked at the Canyon Star new 3424 with the full wall slide. Not sure about such a long slide, but anyway wife and I were talking some more about what we would do if we lived in a RV at least part time. My biggest concern is having enough to do. While I do still ride a lot I'm not sure how much I will in my mid to late 60's, and I don't watch TV, so she suggested I hire out for work while we're on the road fixing stuff. What better unit than one with a garage so I could have a workbench and tools, maybe a golfcart to get around. Since I've built so much stuff and can fix anything from RV's to computers, we thought this merited further looking into.

Some nice rigs out there. The new CS 3921 is looking mighty fine right now.

Best of luck, Chris and Sherry.

A Toy Hauler in any type RV gives the owner a multi-purpose room. In a Class A TH, the garage is safer than most towables with a much better ride going down the road...perfect for a shop.

So, what's the question?

Safe travels

Sorry, I guess I didn't ask a direct question....more on the lines of whether it's worth the space and if I would actually use it, the garage that is? I think it would be just great.

On the 3921 the only thing it's missing is a washer-dryer and I see someone already did an install in theirs.

For us and many others with these versatile RV's, the answer is a resounding YES, the space used for the garage is very well worth it! Only you can make that call for yourself.

The main option is often putting the shop in a trailer to tow behind your RV, but then you can't tow a car.

We have used the garage for the obvious - carrying a motorcycle, as well a kennel space for our Saint Bernard dogs and helping with a dog rescue, and as a guest room when traveling with a second couple. No other RV offers that many options.

The 3921 is a beautiful coach and Newmar puts the washer/dryer hook ups in the garage. That full wall side looks to make the RV like an apartment when parked...awesome!

Best luck

Okay, sounds like others have had the same idea.

I see my other 'forum riding pal' Bross is here with his new Canyon Star. Can't recall which floorplan he got. In looking at the layout I like the 3921 better than the '20. Basically it's the same layout we have in our 31W but with 10' of garage. Whoot!

We've been in our house for 22 years, always had a garage and shop. I've often thought I could live in a condo or apt with ZERO yard as long as I had a shop somewhere to work on stuff. How appropo it would be to do that with a motorhome!

I did not realize Newmar had plumbing for W&D in the garage? For sure?

I also like the 4-door gas-elec fridge for off-grid. With solar panels you don't even need to run the gen. The residential refers are all the rage but even the smaller ones are 6-8A of 110 and that's 60-80A of 12V. You'd be lucky to get through a day with a 400a battery bank without a charging source.

The Newmars seem really nicely put together. And it seems the owners on the forum are generally happy with them.

Yes, I am pretty sure W/D it is an available option, See under Appliance and Accessories:
Canyon Star Standard & Optional Features | Newmar
"Washer/Dryer Prep"

It looks like the pic in this post: Class "A" Toyhaulers
It's a 3920, but since there is no plumbing anywhere near the garage in standard set-up, they would run the piping/drains the same way in both models.

Best luck

Ours is a 3920 with the "small" slide. The full length slide kinda made me nervous, plus I've never seen one in the flesh. Not sure I would like all my appliances, gas lines, water lines, and plumbing moving in and out every time I ran my slide out.

Ours was plumbed for W&D, but we had just about every option on hours, not by choice, it was the one they had on the lot.
