If you have been reading this blog you know that Liz and I want to special order a Newmar coach. Well we missed the 2015 season as all the manufacturing slots for the rest of that model year are filled. So we have been waiting for the 2016 models. Well the dealers met in Nashville this week for the unveiling of the new models. I didn’t realize that they would be making as many changes as they have. The Ventana, which is the model we are interested in had a complete front and back makeover. Information is just dribbling out which is what I’m sure they want to do to whip all the prospective customers into a frenzy. They have got me. Here is a link to the lineup:
In addition to the exterior, they have made changes to some of the floor plans and have made significant chassis improvements. I’m not real keen on the new Ventana grill, but can live with it as so many of the other improvements are great. I’m not sure why it needs a front grill, when the diesel engine is in the rear. As more information becomes available, maybe it will make sense.
The only downside to all these changes is that I’m sure there is going to be a price change too. We were close to our maximum expenditure on the 2015 so I hope we are not priced out of the market. The wait is KILLING me!
