Newmar’s top-of-the-line Class A motorhomes are built on a Spartan chassis.
They are designed, engineered, and made in America with the finest components to create a premier foundation to stay on the road for a good long time.
Spartan Specialty Vehicles and OEM partner Newmar Corp. recently unveiled the 2019 Newmar model year at Newmar’s annual dealer meeting in Dallas, Texas.
The alliance between Spartan Motors and Newmar brings a broad range of new features and chassis improvements to the 2019 model year.
The first of many industry-best features from Spartan Motors, new to Newmar in 2019, includes Spartan Connected Coach, a technology bundle that includes a new digital dash displaying typical automotive gauge functions. according to a Spartan Motors news release.
Features on the surrounding screen include a tire pressure monitoring system on the King Aire and Essex, fuel and DEF levels, and more.
The King Aire features a 15-inch digital dash display, while the Essex, London Aire, Mountain Aire, and Dutch Star all feature a 12.3-inch digital dash display.
Spartan Connected Coach also features Spartan Passive Keyless Start, which provides the convenience of starting the coach with the push of a button. For the first time in the luxury Class A diesel motorhome market, owners now have an all-in-one digital key fob to not only start, but also lock and unlock the coach and all of its accessory compartments.
“At Spartan, we strive to bring continuous innovation to our partners, and Spartan Connected Coach offers Newmar owners a more intuitive driver interface,” said Steve Guillaume, president of Spartan Specialty Vehicles.
“Additionally, our best-in-class extended warranty proves that Spartan stands behind our chassis, giving owners the confidence that their coach will be on the road for a long time.”
Spartan’s extended five-year, 75,000-mile, bumper-to-bumper warranty was also introduced for 2019. This warranty is the industry’s only five-year transferable chassis warranty, providing full coverage to owners for two years more than the competition.
In addition to the two-year extension, a three-year complementary roadside assistance plan through the Coach-Net network includes access to over 40,000 service and repair facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
You’re never far from one of hundreds of Spartan Authorized Service Centers where you can find licensed and insured technicians who are required to complete regular training to keep current on all Spartan chassis.
Spartan Safe Haul—the industry’s only chassis-integrated air supply for tow vehicle braking systems—is now standard on all 2019 Newmar models equipped with Spartan chassis.
On the tow vehicle side, Spartan has aligned with Demco to offer Air Force One tow vehicle kits, made exclusively for Spartan Motors. The kits will be available for purchase through all motorhome dealers selling Newmar products.
“We are very excited to be offering Spartan Safe Haul pre-installed on our 2019 models,” said John Sammut, vice president of sales, Newmar Corp.
“After a quick install of Spartan’s exclusive Air Force One kit on the tow vehicles, our owners are equipped with the safest, most tech-savvy towing system on the market.”
Finally, beginning with the 2019 model year, the Newmar Ventana 40- and 43-foot tag axle models are available built on Spartan’s all-new K2 400 chassis.
The K2 400 features a Cummins L9 400 horsepower diesel engine and an Allison 3000MH Transmission. Spartan Passive Keyless Start, and Spartan Safe Haul are standard on both Ventana tag axle models built on the K2 400, bringing the latest technology to a new platform in 2019.
Remember, not all manufacturers are created equal and not all RV dealers are created equal.
In the interests of full disclosure, we currently own a 2012 Dutch Star diesel pusher. This is our fourth Newmar motorhome and Midtown RV in Penticton, British Columbia, is our trusted dealer.
