Obviously as a Newmar owner my response is "tainted" but you could not make a better choice for a first time Class A motorhome. Newmar's are literally built like a house with framing on 16" centers and have the higher-end finishing expected from a luxury coach manufacturer. If you plan to tow a vehicle on your journeys, the Canyon Star has a nice 6,000 lbs. tow capacity meaning you could easily tow a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited or similar size vehicle.
Here is a link to the sales brochure for 2015 Canyon Stars that has more details --> https://library.rvusa.com/brochure/N...Brochure_1.pdf
