2014 Newmar Ventana LE 3845

Just brought home our "new" Newmar Ventana LE 3845, 340hp, bought for the bunks because the Newfies like to look out the window. Took delivery in the dark and drove 200 white-knuckled miles getting used to the handling. Going to love this thing... Traded a c class Dutchmen and it is like the difference in driving a van and a tour bus. Still haven't figured out how to get the DVD player to work and need to get a GPS as it was hard listening to the phone app the whole way home. Looking for suggestions for trips and best way to tow a vehicle behind it.

Welcome to the Newmar family. I'm sure you'll enjoy all the future travels you're going to have. We need to see some pics though. Love those pics. As far as towing, if the vehicle that you own can be towed 4 down that would be the way to go. You can either look in your vehicles owners manual or go to www.remcoindustries.com and input the information of your vehicle and it will give you what you're looking for. Good Luck.

I took delivery of a Newmar Ventana LE 3436 right about the same time you did. I got the DVD to work no problem.I'm trying to figure out how to hookup a portable satellite TV antenna.

Ventana LE 3845

The sales rep tried to get our DVD working for close to an hour before
giving up. He said it appears that the HDMI cable was never installed... ordered one locally and Newmar said they would pay for it and install. Now I am also trying to figure out the best in-motion system to install to take my direct-tv with me. Still trying to get my head around everything on this thing.
