Those of us who love motorhomes generally don’t look at affordability on the basis of what’s the final agreed-upon price—even though we all wait for a big sale because why not, right? Nor do we explore the perks that come with selling or trading in our current RV—although we should.
That being said, with good credit and a solid down payment you can buy a lot for not-so-much in terms of monthly payment. Let’s take a look at all three of the surprisingly affordable Newmar Class A gas motorhomes.
Newmar Bay Star Sport
The ‘baby’ of the Newmar Class A family, the Bay Star Sport comes in eight different floorplans in lengths from 28 feet up to 34 feet. All of them have their queen bed on a slide to create nice walk-around space, and each has multiple slides to open up the living area.
One of the floorplans, the Bay Star Sport 3315, is a bunkhouse model and can comfortably sleep up to six tired campers.
As far as camp-cozy aspects, it’s hard to resist features such as Samsung LED TVs with a DVD player, polished solid surface countertops, and a large shower with skylight. Optional features include a king bed and a refrigerator with an ice maker.
Newmar Bay Star
Longer and more in-depth than the Bay Star Sport, the Bay Star comes in eleven different floorplans ranging from 30 feet all the way up to 36 feet. Most are front living models with the exception of the Bay Star 3609 with its rear bath and a half bath adjoining the living area, and the Bay Star 3616 which has the same rear bath and half bath but adds a set of stacked twin bunks. Most of them have a king bed standard, and a few of them come equipped with room for a stacked washer-dryer combo.
Luxurious touches in the kitchen include glazed maple mitered cabinet doors with concealed hinges, polished solid surface kitchen countertop with stainless steel sink, 30-inch stainless steel microwave, and pull-out pantry shelves. Other nice assets include leather sofa and front seats, plush pillow top mattress, a pair of Samsung LED TVs each with a Blu-Ray player, and large residential showers with skylights.
Options include an ice maker in the standard 10 cubic foot fridge (or a larger Norcold or Whirlpool fridge with or without ice maker), living area fireplace, and Bose sound system.
Newmar Canyon Star
The big daddy of the Newmar gas engine line, the Canyon Star takes luxurious motorhome living to another level. Purely in size, the Canyon Star’s nine floorplans are large class A gas motorhomes. They range in length from 35 feet up to 39 feet. A pair of them are very unique: the Canyon Star 3927 is a toy hauler with an enclosed garage space of 10 feet, and the Canyon Star 3929 has a private bunkroom in the rear with its own half bath.
As far as luxurious appointments, you’ll find every Canyon Star loaded with items such as custom-made wall sconces, luxury vinyl tile flooring, polished surface countertops in kitchen and bathroom areas, and Samsung LED TVs with Sony Blu-Ray player and Bose soundbar.
The Canyon Star cockpit has six-way power captain’s chairs plus a Sony audio system with JBL speakers. The Canyon Star kitchen includes glazed maple mitered cabinet doors with concealed hinges, under-mounted stainless steel sink, 30-inch stainless steel microwave, and pull-out pantry shelves.
Canyon Star options include a drop-down bunk bed, power theatre seating, central vacuum system, stacked washer and dryer, a residential-style dishwasher, and a fireplace.
So that’s it for the gas-engine line of Newmar motorhomes. One more thing though that may make a Newmar Class A gas motorhome even more affordable: with any motorized RV – be it class A, A-Diesel, B or C – the interest on your payment could be tax-deductible. It’s highly recommended you consult your tax professional for further information.
