Newmar: New Wheelchair Accessible Floor Plan

Newmar Corporation has introduced a new wheelchair accessible floor plan designed exclusively for the Canyon Star gas motorhome line up for 2012.

Newmar has had numerous conversations with retail customers about their desire to purchase a wheelchair accessible motorhome.  In response to their specific needs, Newmar’s engineering department has developed a new Canyon Star 3911 gas motorhome floorplan which addresses many of the features our customers have requested.

The 2012 Canyon Star 3911 features include:

  • 48” wide power wheelchair lift with a wired remote control
  • A 30” wide path from the front of the coach to the bed while the unit is in travel mode (slide rooms in) for wheelchair access
  • A large open floor area on the front side of the bed for easy access

The bathroom in the Canyon Star 3911 provides a large 48 x 37 roll-in shower with seat, a lavatory that is open under the bowl for use with a wheelchair, and a medicine cabinet with mirrors that are placed down lower.

Grab assist bars have been placed in the shower and around the stool.

In the kitchen Newmar has incorporated a new cook top and microwave combination that places the convection microwave below the cook top for easy access by a wheelchair occupant.

The Canyon Star 3911 has a standard “L” dinette that allows seating on the side or back bench as well as plenty of space to accommodate a wheelchair.

Other features include moving all the switches, monitor panel, and EMS panel from the top of the entrance door cabinet to a cabinet just behind the passenger seat for access while sitting in wheelchair.

The 2012 Canyon Star 3911 starts at a retail base price of $156,492 before options.

Worth Pondering…
Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
