Made the Mistake

Went to look at a few Coachmen Rv's. Had quite a few Newmars on the lot that were priced much higher obviously...

guess what the wife wants now. Yup, no way we're getting a Coachmen. Wife fell in love with the Newmar. Time to find a second job

Newmar has the perfect slogan: "When you know the difference". Once we started looking hard at class A s it was pretty obvious that we wanted Newmar.

Have had two DSDP's and probably should have gotten the one the late DW wanted. The Magna we ended up with has better woodwork, far stronger construction, and far heavier too with more torque and HP.

Another (DW) with exquisite taste in motorhomes!

Among its other excellent attributes, you will appreciate Newmar's superior insulation.

Don't fight it admit she's on target. Our first looks we're Winnebago View, Via, Vista, then she went in a Newmar. Game over. I then did the research, DW selected the model, floor plan, and interior. We ended up with a Newmar Canyon Star. She's happy so I'm happy.

Similar here;

We were in AZ last winter just before Christmas. Stopped by CW to buy something for the Ole Mirada. While we were there, DW and I look at a couple larger MHs.

Her comments were something like; "Wow, this is nice, wish ours had this.." We talked about it later in the day, she wanted something a little larger with a slide for more room and a table instead of a booth.

And it began. After about 4 months of looking, We bought a "New-to-Us" 1999 Southwind 35S. Its perfect. She loves it..

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Same here. In San Diego in our 2002 American Eagle and we decided to go to the RV show last weekend. Looked at several brands, but when we entered the 45ft American Dream I knew I was toast.

Same here. We were in a fifth wheel, went to the Denver RV show a few years back and the wife stepped into a few class A's. Ended up with a American Eagle for a while and now with a Newmar Essex. No regrets.

Canyon Star's are very nice and did look at one, last year, when wanting 1 1/2 baths. I believe it was a 2013 or 15. Anyway, after much research and looking at the Revolution again for way less money, we found that overall, there was no comparison, even though having a DP was not a requirement at the time. Naturally like most everything else and now that we have one, there's no going back.
