Newmar Introduces Bay Star Sport

Nappanee, Indiana-based Newmar Corp announced yesterday (November 17) it will introduce its best value in a Class A gas motorhome since its introduction of the Bay Star in 2006. The Bay Star Sport will debut at the 49th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky, that runs from November 29 to December 1 at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC).

The Bay Star Sport will be offered in four models ranging from 27 to 33 feet in length.  The Sport uses the Ford F-53 chassis with the Ford Triton V-10 engine as its platform and power plant.

Newmar plans to build the Bay Star Sport utilizing the same construction, air conditioning system, and slide out mechanism the company is known for and uses on all of its other products, yet offer this entry level gas product at an affordable price.

“The success Newmar has had with the 2012 Ventana LE since its introduction at last year’s show in Louisville, prompted our company to take similar approach in developing a lower cost version of our Bay Star gas motorhome,” said John Sammut, Newmar Vice President of Sales. “We feel that the price at which we are offering this well valued product will render our company added business without taking sales away from Newmar’s best-selling brand—the Bay Star,” he added.

Worth Pondering…
Thank God! there is always a Land of Beyond
For us who are true to the trail;
A vision to seek, a beckoning peak,
A farness that never will fail;
A pride in our soul that mocks at a goal,
A manhood that irks at a bond,
And try how we will, unattainable still,
Behold it, our Land of Beyond!
— Robert Service, The Land of Beyond (Last Verse)
