This week, Newmar Corporation begins production of its all-new 2011 Ventana diesel motorhome. This is the first generational change for Newmar’s entry-level diesel product since the brand was introduced in the 2006 model year.
“We are very excited to launch the next generation of Ventana to our dealers and retail customers,” said John Sammut, Newmar’s vice president of sales and marketing. “…With the breathtaking new look and the tremendous value the 2011 Ventana offers, we cannot help but think that this exciting product will continue to grow our company’s business.”
The 2011 Ventana will feature newly designed front and rear caps, dash and instrument panels, providing the operator with an ergonomically designed cockpit.
Interior design changes include newly styled furniture, slide-out fascias and window treatments, as well as a new contemporary headboard in the bedroom. The standard flooring offered in the 2011 Ventana features polished porcelain tile laid on a diagonal with small designer inserts throughout the front living area. The Ventana for 2011 is available in three interior decors, three exterior paint colors and two wood choices.
The 2011 Ventana is being offered exclusively on the Freightliner XC-R series motorhome chassis. The 34-foot and 39-foot models will be powered by a 350-horsepower Cummins ISB engine while the 43-foot tag axle models feature a 360-horsepower Cummins ISC power plant. As with all Newmar diesel motorhomes, the 2011 Ventana will be equipped standard with the Comfort Drive Steering System.
Floor plans include two 34-foot, three 39-foot and three 43-foot tag axle models. The 43-foot offerings include a bath-and-a-half floor plan, one side aisle model as well as a traditional rear bedroom quad slide layout.
Full-wall slides are offered in one 34-foot and one 39-foot model. One 39 foot model even features a wardrobe with removable doors in the hallway that can be converted into two large bunk beds in a matter of seconds.
New options being offered in Ventana for 2011 include a Sleep Number Deluxe air mattress in the bedroom, and a residential refrigerator with a pure sine wave inverter and two extra batteries on select models.
Another option on certain models is an exterior entertainment center with a Sony 40-foot television, remote radio and two speakers located in the sidewall beneath the patio awning.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the 2011 Ventana start at $218,858.
