Weird Question - Bedroom Monitor in 2014 Newmar Essex?

I Currently have A Monaco Dynasty ( I Purchased Brand New,)It came with a Monitor in Bedroom that I can View The Right, The Left & Rear of Coach from the Bed, I am in process of Ordering 2014 Newmar Essex, HOWEVER This Monitor is NOT an option in The Essex, ALTHOUGH The King Aire has this as STANDARD Feature, I requested the Monitor In My ESSEX, BUT NEWMAR HAS REFUSED TO ADD THIS FEATURE, The Only reason I can See for them Not to honor this feature is they want Me to Buy King Aire, It seems to Me that I'm having Coach Built to My Specs That they would do this I see no reason why they Cannot. I know this is trivial But it could be a deal breaker. SO, My question is, Has anyone ever added this feature via after market?.

As you have found out Newmar generally will not put features from a higher model on a lower model.

They have always been serious about model separation.

It will be interesting to hear if they " fold " if you make this a deal breaker. Keep us posted.

If Newmar is the only brand you want than your stuck. I would think with the type of money you would be paying you could get what you wanted. Go to your 2nd choice and see if they would add this item to one of their coaches. If they will than get it.

Then send the Newmar Dealer a picture of your new coach with the item you wanted installed.

If your happy with the one in your Monaco, call the monitor company and see whom all installs their units.


Newmar is a stickler for not adding the key items from upper lines. Learning just what those key features are, is a whole game unto it's self.

What exactly do you look at in bed on this monitor? I am at a loss on what the need is. Is it just to see if someone/something is near your RV when parked?

We have that monitor in our King Aire, and you really can't do what you think you can do with it. It's wall-mounted, and the switch to change the view is on the monitor. So you can't actually do anything with it "from bed". Also, in five years we've had this coach, I don't think I've ever actually used that monitor for any real purpose. Heck, it's probably only been turned on 5 times in 5 years.

Monitor

I Have It In My current Monaco & I use it while In bed if I sense something array outside Coach I can View Either Side, as well as Rear of Coach..
It's just something I've found useful & as long as they have Same in King, I thought for the Money Of the Essex, It would be a simple thing to do while in Construction, But I guess Newmar wants Me to spend the money for the King, is which is not going to happen, They have denied this request twice so It's a Deal breaker, I DO NOT BELIEVE this is a BIG DEAL or a UNREASONABLE request..as I'm willing to pay for the installation of same.

I guess I really don't know, I know the 2014 Dynasty will have this feature, ALTHOUGH there is nothing wrong with My 2008 Which only has 23,000 Miles I may Just Stay with that, I Saw The Newmars ,Tiffins & Monaco's at Mpls Rv Show & Just got a bug to trade as I liked ALL that I seen. Guess If I stay with Mine MAMA will be lot happier as well & You know that Scene!!!.

It is more than just the monitor they add 3 additonal cameras. They use the existing back up camera add a camera high on each side and 1 interior camera in the middle of the coach pointing forward.

Ma Snart
Maybe then you can put one of those ADT stickers on the outside?

Seems like something that Burt Reynolds might have on his RV.
