Newmar King Aire
We just received our copy of Family Motor Coaching magazine and they have, on the front cover, a photo of a 2017 Newmar King Aire. A bit unusual for a magazine cover, the King Aire was decidedly in need of a wash on the outside. Lots of dirt visible particularly on the tires.
The King Aire goes for more than a million dollars here in Canada so it is a decidedly serious investment in a motorhome. A cool half million more than our Castaway.
When I look at some interior shots between the King Aire and the Castaway, I’m not thinking that there is a significant difference on the surface between the two motorhomes.
This is our interior:
And a somewhat similar angle in the King Aire:
But there are a lot of differences between the two coaches.
I love the glass console in the King Aire — the Silverleaf electronic dash — as well as the new Total Vision system which offers a 360-view of the coach. I have something similar on my car. It provides a bird’s eye view of your vehicle which makes it very, very easy to park.
All the flat panels are 4K with Bose providing the sound support. The King Aire comes with a huge 200-gallon tank. It is built on the Spartan K3 chassis with a Cummins ISX 600-horsepower engine. The engine features the new Cummins Connected Diagnostics System, a feature that allows the engine to communicate directly with Cummins and allow them to initiate customer contact in the event of a fault code. I really wish we had that feature on our coach.
Family Motor Coaching has the article here. And, of course, you can check out the King Aire from Newmar’s website here.
