Newmar Corp. recently introduced a lower priced version of its low profile, 29-foot diesel pusher Class A motorhome, the NewAire, according to Craig Alexander, vice president and national sales manager.
The new version, called the NewAire Classic, carries a suggested retail price of $162,380.
The Classic has the same body style but does not include all of the high-tech features found in the original NewAire, now called the Limited.
The NewAire Limited carries a suggested retail price of $190,344, according to Phil Miller, national sales manager for the NewAire series.
The NewAire Classic comes with a Cummins 260-horsepower (hp) engine and an Allison T-2000 tranmission that generates 550 ft./lbs. of torque. Meanwhile, the Limited comes with a 275-hp Cummins and an Allison MH-2000 transmission that generates 600 ft./lbs of torque.
Other differences include the fact that the Limited comes with a more elaborate stereo sound system with the backup camera integrated into the sound system. Meanwhile, the Classic’s backup camera is wired into its own monitor that is positioned over the dash, Miller said.
The Limited also has a global positioning system (GPS) available as an option while a GPS is not available on the Classic.
The Limited has aluminum wheels while the Classic has steel wheels, Miller added.
