Newmar Introduces 2013 Dutch Star

Newmar introduced its 2013 product line-up at the recently completed Good Sam Rally in Louisville, Kentucky and at the Newmar Kountry Klub Rally in Gillette, Wyoming.

A design emphasis on bolder colors, and more eye appeal was welcomed by customers at both events.

Highlighting the product change was the total life-cycle redesign of the Dutch Star, according to a news release.

One of Newmar’s best known brands, the Dutch Star features a new front cap with stainless steel grill and LED accent lighting. A new hood design with hidden hinges and a heavier duty windshield wiper system with more coverage area; highlight the change to the front of the new Dutch Star.

The rear cap has also been redesigned and features new automotive taillights with LED accents. Four distinct, exterior graphics choices allow customers to choose from a variety of colors. Each graphic includes five different colors with blended paint “fades.”

Interior improvements include three wood choices, hidden hinges on all cabinetry, and new designer mitered cabinet doors with glazing.
