What goes around comes around. I honestly do not know how individuals with no morals or ethics can sleep well at night. I would also file a complaint with the BBB, Newmar, and the Attorney Generals Office. I would also leave a negative review for their service department on http://rvservicereviews.com/

Anyway, Congratulations on your fine new ride and I really like the solar setup. I hope you have many great memories and adventures with your new toy.

Can't imaging spending that kind of money and having the hassles you've had. I hope all is straightened out and you have years of safe travels and fun,

Good luck.

You really got screwed by your dealer. I got a 2011 Bay Star new with too many problems too. Quality from the factory is poor. I'd never buy another Newmar or any new RV. This seems too typical of manufacturers.

Lesson learned: When you do a trade, cross out any language that lets seller/dealer cut trade price due to change in NADA or Blue Book prices. The trade price agreed to should stand, regardless. If they want to adjust the price after they see your unit, walk.

This shows the risks of buying over the phone when the dealer hasn't seen your unit or wants the power to change prices at the last minute. A dealer can't agree to a fixed price without seeing what you have. So you've got to do the deal in person, even if it involves two or more long trips, imho. I'll remember this story.

Be careful about what you post about a supplier. Libel laws apply. Opinions are protected so long as you have not been "malicious." Each state has different libel laws.

I have found the BBB to be worse than useless.

Newmar sells the unit to the dealer, after that it's the dealers to do with as the please under the contract you made with the dealer, although, if enough complaints are received they'll pull the dealership.

The AG's office may or may not be a help, depends on your state's laws and the contract you signed with the dealer.

Sounds to me like your contract included a re-negotiation clause and you got caught by it. Not much you can do about it.

As for the hose blowing off: what was the water pressure at the park you were at? Did you have a pressure regulator in line? The lines are only tested to 100 or so psi and I've seen pressures of 125 psi at the spigot.

I got our 2008 Bay Star 2901 in 09/07 and had no problems.
The only problem was with the ONAN GEN.
At 11 Hours a valve spring broke, but it got fixed on Warranty.

Wishing you all the best on your RVing future.

I would be as upset with the builder as I would be with the dealer. The kind of stuff that was not right with the coach was not the dealers fault. Water leaks? Really? in a new coach? The factory should of kept your coach for a few extra day to see what crappy workmanship their workers provided to your RV.

You maybe right but I will forgive Newmar's fault because it did not seem intentional. The dealership claimed it repaired an ice maker hose water leak discovered during it's PDI and then I had a hose blow off a week later. I have no proof, but I would not be surprised if it was a faulty repair that Sky River RV did that made the second leak in the same general area.

You're to nice. It takes so little time to do something right the first time.

Very nice rig, too bad you couldn't find one someplace else. That stealership is just like all of them around where I live, disgusting that they continue to stay in business.

Forget about everything else, and enjoy the new rig. If someone told you that you only had 5 years to live tomorrow, you'd forget about all this in a heartbeat. We never know what is in store, and you got out of there with a nice rig you will enjoy for a long time.

You seem to be so calm through your writing about this. Perhaps it works as therapy! Really nice looking coach, love the colors. A few days dry camping will soothe the bad memories that came with the purchase. Thanks for getting the word out about another scum bag dealership for those in the vicinity to avoid. Good Luck! and many happy and safe miles on that beautiful rig.
