Newmar 2009 Canyon Star Toy Hauler Motor Home

Newmar’s New Toy Hauler Is The First Of Its Kind

NAPPANEE, Ind. – Newmar Corporation, the Indiana-based manufacturer of high quality Class A motorhomes and fifth wheels, has designed the ultimate Class A Gas Toy Hauler floorplan for the adventurous RVer. The 2009 Canyon Star 3920 is the perfect fit for the person who loves to travel in style and take their toys on the road. This new floorplan gives owners comfortable, roomy living space with a garage to store large off-road vehicles.

“The 3920 is the first Class A Gas toy hauler on the market to offer an actual full-size bedroom,” said John Sammut, Newmar’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Although bunk beds with an electric bed lift are an option in the garage of this new Canyon Star model, this unique layout allows the owner to sleep comfortably somewhere in the motorhome other than in the garage or on the sofa in the living room.”

This dedicated bedroom space comes standard with a queen-size bed, wardrobes, a chest of drawers, and a 19” LCD TV.

The 3920 features a rear-ramp design and is built on the Ford® F-53 26,000 chassis powered by a 362 horsepower Triton V-10 engine. With over 6,000 lbs. of Net Carrying Capacity, Canyon Star owners are able to take their small vehicles with them and enjoy the RV lifestyle.

Garage features include diamond tread rubber flooring, tie-down tracks, and a stainless steel overhead cabinet with a recessed flip-down countertop. Wheel chocks, a screen for the rear cargo door, and a second air conditioner with heat strips are optional.

The Canyon Star front living area features a full-size kitchen with a built-in booth dinette (or optional round dinette or freestanding dinette), a 74” sofa, and a 26” LCD TV in the front overhead cabinet. A dry bar with a 32” LCD TV can be optioned. The Canyon Star features three interior decors to choose from and three full-paint Masterpiece Finish™ exterior graphics packages.

The 2009 3920 starts at a retail base price of $136,626. For more information regarding this or any other Newmar products call 1-888-798-6678 or visit www.northtrailrv.com.

RV Manufacturers Going Green

It seems like RV manufacturers are making an attempt to create a more environmentally sustainable product. They're going green. RV manufacturers are cutting down on waste and practicing recycling. According to WSBT.com, RV companies in Elkhart County, Indiana have turned more than 2,000,000 pounds of waste into useful products.

Scraps that use to be thrown away, that were left over when cutting out the RV bodies, are now being saved and recycled into other parts for the RVs. By recycling these scraps the RV manufacturers are able to lower the price of their finished RVs.

It is great to read about RV manufacturers taking the lead when it comes to this subject as the entire RV industry and its future is so closely
tied into the environment. Traveling and seeing America's nature beauty and it's majestic landscapes are what makes RVing so great and such an enduring and sought after lifestyle.
