Who’s at Camp Newmar

Left Nappanee two days ago. Was there four days. All was good. Service was great, everyone friendly and eager to solve our problems. That has been our experience for eight plus visits. Nothing has changed.

I was up last month, and overall a great experience. I had the living room portion of my floor plan redone. The downside is the estimator WAY underestimated what it would take, but the team lead/tech the first morning gave me an updated estimate and asked if I still wanted to do it (nearly doubled price).

However, I thought the work done was great. A few hiccups, like leaving my coach unplugged overnight when replacing batteries, but fortunately I didn't have too much food in it, and they did some work on the slide, and it's not going flat -- I'm going to try and reset the soft limits.

Now, some of those issues above were from the fact that estimator had figured seven days total, not only for the floor plan changeover, but also quite a bit of other work (warranty and retail). Since I was leaving it, I just left it for a little over three weeks and the team lead fit in nearly all the work I wanted, but in doing so, they had to get different techs to work on some parts, and like with the batteries, the tech working on that, had to jump back on to his primary coach in the middle.

By and large, a great experience, and plan to return for work in the future.

Water On?

Heading up to Camp Newmar Oct 31st. Does anyone know when they will turn the water off?

Also, are the gates working again?

Thanks!

We left October 12th and the gates were working. No mention of the water turn off date but a call to customer service will get you that answer.

I did a tour of the Grand Design factory in Middlebury this past Monday. While in the area, we drove around the Newmar Factory. I considered staying in the area for another day to tour Newmar, but their website says virtual tours only. I can't speak to the inside of the buildings (i.e. a tour), but the grounds and buildings are fantastic.

At the Service Center Nov 28-Dec 3

Headed up for a planned 5 days of work (M-F) to get the roof radius cracks originating at the awning screws fixed. Since it is exterior work and will involve fiberglass and paint I'm guessing some part of the week I'll be at a local hotel.

It might be but Nappanee is a very small town.

Doubt Uber service is available in Nappanee. You could call the 800 Newmar customer service number and find out. If you will be there five days without a toad and want to get out and about, consider a car rental from a local car dealership. Plenty of Newmar folks should be available to help you with that inquiry.

When I was there in April, they had a loaner car you could use for short periods.

OK just got here. One mile from here the coach lost power, missing badly and the check engine light came on with the emissions light. How lucky was that!! Made it all the way from Atlanta, could have been worse.
