Newmar Introduces First 3D TV

Newmar Corp. announced Monday (November 21) that it will debut the RV industry’s first use of Sony 3D television technology 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).

According to a news release, the televisions will be shown in the 2012 Essex Class A diesel motorhome at the event, and will be available on Newmar’s 2012 King Aire and Essex Diesel Pushers.

Sony. It’s another Newmar difference. 

Working together, Newmar and Sony create top quality motorcoach entertainment experiences. Sony offers an integrated entertainment experience for your Newmar coach, including big screen LCD HD or 3D TVs, Blu-ray CD/DVD players, surround sound systems, AM-FM radios with CD players. That means you can enjoy PlayStation games, HD TV, music, movies, and more.

“Newmar’s introduction of Sony 3D technology in its luxury motorhome lines is just another RV industry first brought to market by our company,” said Kyle McCrary, Newmar’s director of luxury motorhome sales. “Thanks to the Miller family and the resources they provide, our company has a legacy of being an innovator in the RV industry. Newmar will remain committed to innovation when the opportunity presents itself.”

Newmar’s Signature Innovation—the Power Slide-Out

The development of the slide-out in the early 1990s remains a watershed moment in the industry.

In a recent interview Mahon Miller, founder and owner of Newmar Corp, said, “When I told our engineers I wanted to have a slide-out in a motorhome, they said, ‘You can’t do that.’”

“I said, ‘Why not?’ They had all kinds of reasons, so I said, ‘Look. We already have them in fifth-wheels. Have them hook up our pickup truck in a fifth-wheel and we’re going to get in that pickup where the slide-out is and I want the driver to find the roughest road he can find.’

“We were in the back of that fifth-wheel and it didn’t move,” Miller said. “The engineer looked at me and said, ‘Maybe we can put it in a motorhome.’”

Newmar had the slideout market basically to itself for three years. The first year, it was met with skepticism. By the third year, it had become a trend, and as they say, the rest is history.
