Dedication of our personal Newmar Service Center
Twenty four years ago this week we purchased our first new Newmar, a 1997 London Aire. After 7 years and over 100K miles it was time for a 45 foot, 4 slide coach, and what other would that be for us but a Newmar Essex. After 14 years in our Essex, with over 145K miles of travel from Alaska to all but one state in the US, it was time again to purchase our last Newmar coach, our 2018 LA on the Spartan K-3 chassis and a 605 Cummins. We really feel we are living the dream with our Newmars, and it was time to dedicate our personal Newmar/Spartan Service Center, where we have spent hundreds of hours keeping these great machines ready to travel at all times. Between irv2, Newmar Kountry Klub, and FMCA seminars, we have learned a lot and have shared a lot by doing our own seminars.
In our service center we have done almost all maintenance on these 3 great machines. But we have also replaced a turbo, installed a residential fridge, removed most carpet to add wooden floors, replaced all air bags/shocks, numerous times we've replaced all batteries, upgraded TV/satellite systems, service trans/rear axle assembly, and as posted on irv2, now numerous slide out motor repairs/adjustments.
As we head toward our 25 years of Newmar coach ownership we realize how enjoyable it has been to travel in them, and we have made them the center piece of our last 24 years. In the next year or two, we will hit the 300K mile mark of Newmar travel, and what a ride it has been! We hope all other Newmar owners experience the same joy that we have gotten out of our Newmar coaches.
When you travel as much as we have, you need a great location to get your service done, and that is why we are dedicating our personal service center. We are equally as lucky to get to keep our coaches on the property so we can enjoy them more.
