Picking up New Canyon Star soon

We have a new 2021 Canyon Star 3927 ordered and should be here soon. We've been waiting for a while. We ordered in April. There have been many back ordered parts. We've been told, any day now.


My question is about an extended warranty. Do you suggest getting one and if so, how much can these run? Is this purchased from the dealer or elsewhere?


I've been reading about lots of problems on some RV's and wasn't sure if this would be something to consider. I'm pretty handy when it come to fixing things around the house.


This is our first RV and I know there's a lot to learn. Thanks in advance for any advise.

I have a Fleetwood Bounder, and would have saved a bunch of money by handling things myself. You will wind up fixing lots of things because you do not want to wait for an appointment anyway.

Read all the posts about warranty repairs. You need to be handy and fix most issues yourself if you want to use your RV instead of having it sit at the dealers waiting. See what the wait time is for a warranty repair at your Dealers and then make a decision. I bet they don't want to let you speak to other owners that are having warranty work done.

Thanks for the advise. I didn't know what to expect from dealer. I will try everything I can think of on the night we spend at dealer.


I like the idea of this being a diesel, but a little concerned about it being the first year.

Numerous owners will advise to pass on the extended service contracts and simply put the same amount of money into a savings account to pay for any repairs encountered. Not a bad strategy, one I use myself. On the flip side, get a quote (or several) from different outlets before you take delivery of the new coach. Wholesale Warranties is one popular company but I thought they were outrageous on my quote a year ago. The dealer will certainly try to sell you a policy, but it's negotiable just like most other items on the contract. Having a figure or two before you go into the financing office will give you an idea if you're getting a decent price. Keep in mind that you have a full year in which to think about it as you're covered by the manufacturers warranty. Just my $.02 and good luck with your new coach.

Welcome to the forum.
The new chassis DP Canyon Star is new to Newmar but I beleive FL has had on market for a while. == Owners Guide === Brochure
As far as everything else in coach its Newmar design as in all their coach's and this sticky will give you a background on any problems.
If your handy you should be able to handle many of the problems that will arise as most of us have over the years with most of our coach's and members here will help you through many of them. Lots of reading of different problems that will about will aid you in finding a solution.
One thing to read is this Newmar PDI to use at dealers when you pick up coach.
Congrats on the Newmar, enjoy and many safe traveling miles when you do.

Looks like the 2021 Canyon Star is the new front engine diesel.

Did you pick up any cargo capacity over the previous gas versions?

Yes the FL will add 3" in height on cargo. I guess every little bit will help.

HaHa, I think hohenweld was asking about cargo "WEIGHT" capacity.

Congrats, this diesel chassis looks like a good move by Newmar, especially for the toyhauler floorplan. Now if they could just make a flat rear cargo door for use as a deck

Nice. Does it list maximum weight limits for the ramp and for the garage floor?
