Has anyone ever seen one of these?

Newmar NewAire MH

I have never seen one before now. Really futuristic and cool looking IMO.

Saw similar post about that model, a year or so ago.
I'd be worried about an add that says, There are lots of people looking for this model" , when they are slashing the price to move it off their lot.

As with all extreme styling some people love it, others don't. For me it is too gimmicky and I think I'd be more and more embarrassed by its styling after the initial novelty wore off.

I can certainly understand why they didn't continue it, and why no one else followed this fashion trend.

That was a concept coach designed by Newmar along the lines of the old 73 thru 78 GMC motorhome. They were intended for those who wanted to downsize but still wanted the amenities of the big coaches of the time. The predecessor to the Allegro Breeze of today. I think the were only available for a couple of years if memory serves me. Very few were actually made..

Dealer had one on the lot when I bought my MH (2001) it was ordered in full Harley Davidson motif for the buyer, included matching enclosed cycle trailer.. Neat concept but little storage, no slides. Same engine as my 36 ft. Believe it had a sunken center aisle like the GMC...

I inspected one way back when and thought it was a well made coach. Lots of attention to detail but it was a little small. Kind of reminds me of a Vixen which was another rv before its time.

28' with a tag axle? Must be a really heavy unit.

Now that I look at it again, it reminds me a bit of the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile.

Actually it is just the perfect size and config I would like, being single and not wanting anything big but with all the niceties.

I would go look at it but feel it is $20 more than it should be. Guess you have to pay for COOL.

Well, that is in Canada. For US $$, it might be in your ballpark. (According to that page, only 43 of those were ever built.)

Not having any slides would really hurt resale value. We had a '97 for a while and when slides came out, it made a huge difference.

Just saw the pics. I like the concept of the coach but the interior colors, I remain neutral.
