Just signed up to gather info in preparation for my first RV purchase. Currently looking at a 2009 Newmar Canyon Star 3510 with a 360 horse Gas engine and 6 speed transmission. Condition is great but I am curious if the engine has sufficient power and I am interested in any other info/guidance I can receive from this community. Much appreciated.

Before you buy, listen to this guys podcast. It's maybe 10 minutes long, he's a lawyer, and it will give you a lot of insight into things to look out for. https://soundcloud.com/stevelehto/dont-buy-an-rv-ep-45

BTW, the Canyon Star is a darn popular model, but you would be VERY wise to have someone who knows rv's check it out completely and thoroughly.

Be sure you check all of the walls... just press your finger tips into the walls all around, including in the slides. If there was ever a water leak, the wall will feel soft or mushy.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us.

Canyon Star is a nice gas MH. Your question about whether is has enough power is a bit vague. Enough to pull a car as a Toad? Yes. To maintain 65 mph up an 8% grade? No. But it will get you there and you'll have a great time with it.

Happy Trails!!!
