The Newmar Bay Star 3626 Coach floor plan was the key factor in our choice to purchase one used.

The Newmar Bay Star 3626 Coach floor plan was the key factor in our choice to purchase one used. This is our second RV, we had a Class C MH prior, sold it, and decided to upgrade to a Class A MH about a year later. The 3626 features 4 slides, 2 in the Master Bedroom and 2 in the Living / Kitchen area. The MBR features a Serta Posturepedic Hybrid full size King mattress, Samsung LED TV, Blu-Ray DVD Player and tons of storage. Next to the MBR is a closet with connections for a future stacked washer/dryer unit. Across from the closet is the bathroom featuring a full size shower with skylight and automatic fantastic roof fan. The bathroom also has ample storage cabinets and both LED ceiling and vanity lighting. Immediately behind the Co Pilot seat is the main entry door to the coach which leads up to a large living room and kitchen / dining area. There are two recliners opposite the fold out sofa couch queen size bed. Behind the sofa is the Televator containing a Samsung 43" LED TV with Bose Sound Bar on top. All TV's in the coach (3) are remotely connected to the HDMI distribution system above the driver in the Entertainment Electronics Cabinet. DVD Player located above driver is connected to LR and Exterior TVs. A second HDMI distribution hub is installed for a satellite receiver. Also in the cabinet is the WiFiRanger Spruce Router and power supply and provides a dedicated WiFi network for the everything in the coach. The Dinette area will seat 4 adults comfortably, and also will collapse down to form a bed for kids. Overall the rig can sleep 4 adults and 2 kids. The Kitchen is opposite the Dinette and features a double wide AC / LP French door refrigerator with Ice Maker, 3 burner LP Gas Cook-top, Combination Microwave / Convection oven above the cook-top. Double stainless sinks and solid surface counters round out the kitchen. We have put ~8000 miles on this coach since purchasing it in May of 2022. Although we are not the original purchasers, we contacted Newmar for support and they have been fantastic to work with, they truly stand behind their products! This is a solid, well built coach, and everything works as designed. Outside there is a 21' canopy that can be extended either manually or using the included wireless remote control. Additionally the awning has a wind sensor that an retract the awning automatically in high winds (although we only deploy the awning if we are using it). Under he canopy is the outdoor TV Cabinet which allows the display of OTA, DVD, or Satellite programs. Note all 3 TV's in the coach are connected by WiFi and are Smart TV's. We give high scores (5s) rating this RV with our only 3 on Driving / Towing. Towing is limited to 5000 pounds, depending on loading this may be reduced based on actual weight. That being said, we towed our Jeep Wrangler Sahara all over the place with no problems whatsoever. To improve drive ability during high winds, or being passed by a semi, we replaced the Front OEM Anti Sway Bar with a HD one from Roadmaster. We also added a Roadmaster Auxiliary HD Anti Sway Bar to the rear of the coach. Further, we replaced all the shocks with KONI for a much improved and enjoyable drive. Lastly, but significant to point out, we've installed the 5 Star Custom Tune on the engine which yielded vastly improved power and shifting points in the Ford F53 V10 26K Chassis. All the house batteries (6) have been replaced with AGM Deep Cycle batteries and provide 570 AH capacity and no maintenance. Four are located in a tray compartment on the driver side and two are located up in the engine compartment. If you are in the market for a Class A coach on a budget, you will not be disappointed in this unit.

Plenty of power to pull the full 5000 lbs specified.

We have lived in this RV off and on for the past 3 years while traveling from East to West Coast and New Hampshire to Florida. The ride quality and comfort is unsurpassed and was one of the contributing factors leading to our upgrade to this model from a previous manufacturer. Towing a Honda CRV is effortless, even while crossing the Rockies you'd hardly know it was behind you. Once at our destination the slide-outs add a tremendous amount of interior volume and comfort. We especially enjoy the exterior lounging features including the TV and speaker system not to mention the spacious interior dining area with plenty of room for 5. The spacious shower and private master bedroom is unmatched in this category. One simply can not go wrong with a Newmar 3113 and an open road for those ready for (comfortable) adventure.

We found the coach to be very comfortable for our travels. The pullout table extended for dining, additional prep space, and a place to play cards when it rained. The coach has plenty of cabinet storage, and a residential refrigerator. This helped limit trips to the store. The bathroom and rectangular shower was large enough to be comfortable without banging about. When our grandchildren visited, we found that the jack-knife couch worked perfectly for our guests. Sometimes I slept comfortably on the couch, while the little ones slept with grandma on the king-sized bed! The coach drives well and easily tows our 2020 Buick Envision. The setup is quick and painless. The overall quality is very good. We have not experienced any problems after the delivery warranty repairs were addressed.

After almost two years experience with this MotorHome, I can say I really love it. It drove fine right out of the factory, but I did quite a bit of suspension work, as soon as I got it. My driving instructor says it now rides almost as nice as a DP. The floor plan is ideal for me. The TV across from the recliners was a must. The workmanship is excellent. Unlike my previous RV, I have it found one piece of split wood. Did it have issues initially? They all do. However, Newmar has been excellent at addressing all of the issues in a timely manner. I hope this lasts a long time and they keep this floor plan. My hope is that I will buy at least one more MotorHome. My first choice would be a Newmar, assuming they keep the quality up and remain affordable, under Winnebago’s umbrella.

The floor plan is ideal for me. This is a great coach with a good size bathroom. The kitchen is well appointed with sufficient counter space, and nice pantry. Especially appreciated is the tv on the televator, directly across from the recliners. It drove ok right out o the factory, having done research on the f53 chassis MotorHome, I immediately did a number of suspension upgrades. The driving school instructor said it now rides almost like a diesel pusher, except for the engine noise (being that the engine is right under us). Have there been problems? It is a MotorHome. Of course. However, the customer service at Newmar has been outstanding (with the exception of my call to the emergency number, on the road. No one answered and no one returned the call). However, they have addressed every issue and I am very happy with the coach, and very happy with Newmar. I hope to buy another before the end of my roving days.
