Any reports of how the 2020 Newmar New Aire drives with the 450 HP engine?

I only drove a 2019. :( But ordered a 2020 on specs alone. I know someone that has one, and actually traded their 2019 for the 2020. They wanted the extra 2 feet and the bigger engine. I know they pull a large pick up.

We parked next to Ann n Gene at the AIM rally in Las Vegas last month. They had just traded their 2019 33 foot New Aire for a 2020 35 footer. I can’t recall exactly which floor plan.

The DW and I got a tour and it was a beautiful coach. They both were very excited with their new toy and had lots of good things to say about their dealer, NIRVC.

Maybe we can get them over on this forum to give a full report.

The Dutch Star and New Aire have the same rear end gearing, (4.78).
With the difference in weight it should build momentum rapidly.
Almost to the point of acceleration. I wish we had waited a year to buy.

Our Dutch Star at 37' weighs about the same as a 35 NA. One of the main reasons for our choice when looking at it and a Ventana was the HP difference. I can say it gets going quicker than the small engined Ventana, but it's hardly what I would call quick. Our old Baystar would leave either one in the dust. Our present DS at 37K will climb most hills out west at 50mph towing the Wrangler which is about as much as I could expect.
