Newmar Super Star

Updated: the big reveal of Newmar’s new Super C happened. You can learn more about the big reveal here.

Newmar will be introducing new Super C models. Will they look like a Showhauler Super C?

I didn’t hear anything about these new models at the recent RV SuperShow in Tampa. Newmar will formally introduce their 2020 Super Cs at RVX 2019. RVX is a dealer-focused event intended to spur consumer interest in RVs even as the industry struggles to keep up with demand.

There will be two Super C models. One will be called a Super Star. Newmar did publish this line drawing on their dealer invitation page.

I like the idea of a Super C. A very robust platform. Safer with the engine out front. But every time I have walked through a high end Super C, like a Showhauler, I am a bit underwhelmed. The interiors are not as nice as a comparably priced diesel pusher. The tractor at the front takes about 10 to 12 feet of space from the interior of the motorhome which results in less living space than an equivalent length diesel pusher. And Class A restricted resorts, which we enjoy, obviously do not allow Super Cs in their parks.

I am very interested, though, in how Newmar will approach this new model line. Frankly, I think they might be getting too stretched as it is with 11 existing models and hundreds of floorpans and all sorts of available options. Will they be able to scale their current manufacturing process? Will they be able to maintain reasonable quality issues? How much will they charge for a luxury Super C?

We’ll find out soon. RVX takes place in March.

    I think you will find the large truck chassis motorhome guys don’t frequent Rv parks in general. Additionally they don’t have polished floors and lighted ceilings in their homes, so it makes sense they wouldn’t be attracted to such amenitites in their coaches.

      Hi Darin,

      I will defer to your expert insight into the large truck chassis motorhome market as I do not follow it all that closely.

      I do have good insight into the Class A market hence my curiosity about Newmar’s decision to introduce a Super C into their product line.

      We will find out in a few weeks about their new product and whether it comes with polished floors and lighted ceilings 🙂

    I’m not finding info on the chassis and engine that are being used. This is the first I’ve seen of this new product, but it looks very interesting

    We are looking at the 40′ SuperStar C now, and the ONLY drawback is the fact we can’t go to Class A restricted resorts. The SuperStar C for 2020 is nothing short of amazing in details. Are they really safer with the engine out front?

      I am no expert in transportation safety. The design of a Super C would seem to offer more protection to the driver and passenger than a Class A design and perhaps a higher level of safety.
