Lee and Joyce Madrazo, of Greenville, South Carolina just purchased their third Newmar motorhome from North Trail RV Center in Ft. Myers, FL and they decided on a gently, pre-owned Dutch Star. Their two previous coaches were both Moutain Aires. “We’ve had two Mountain Aire motorhomes previously,” says Joyce, “this one has the same amenities and we like it better!”

While the Mountain Aire is one step up from the Dutch Star in the Newmar product line and is now produced along side the high end Essex and King Aire, the Dutch Star holds its own with many of the same features, and gives luxury buyers a choice in the middle.

According to Dave Garl, Regional Account Manager for Newmar Corp., “With the 2012 Dutch Star, it’s the best thing on the market out there. There is a lot of coach for the money here.”

Featuring an upgraded, exterior paint job,Newmar’s patented Comfort Drive system, residential sized appliances, state of the art electronics, Corian and porcelain finishes, custom hardwood cabinetry, and even a walk in closet with laundry room, the Dutch Star won’t disappoint.

So, whether buyers choose to spend their hard saved money on fuel or moonrocks…with the 2012 Dutch Star, they won’t have to sacrifice luxury.
