2005 Newmar Mountain Aire Diesel Pusher MADP 4032, super clean, well maintained, no rust, no leaks, ready to go anywhere.
VIN: 4VZBR1D935C048478: 74,100 miles, Quad power slides with power locks. Cummins 400 hp ISL & Allison MH3000 six-speed auto with two stage engine brake.
After several years of searching, found the best under $100K RV out there for my retirement. But was offered a job I couldn't turn down so you can capitalize on my years of searching, all the ones I walked away from. Selling below market but have no time so only qualified buyers with cash in bank ready to decide and drive it home. Clean, no lien, title in hand.

I'm in Columbia, Maryland the RV is in an inside storage facility an hour West of me on a private, gated farm but I would retrieve it prior to the sale so I could wash it off and check tire pressures, etc. This price is below market value, there are even RV dealers who want to buy this, mark it up and re-sell it. So you are buying wholesale, please don't waste my time if you don't have money in the bank or aren't ready, NOW!

Quad Slides pack a HUGE space in a 40-footer at the campground, 400 hp Cummins ISL (best RV motor ever), optional $7300 HydroHot diesel fired hot water heater (endless, not 5 gal or 10 gal) and forced air heat without using propane. Light maple interior solid wood cabinetry, clean contemporary without fabric lambrequins on windows. Awesome kitchen with deep roll out pantry drawers, huge NorCold 4 French door fridge/freezer with in the door water and ice maker. Can run on 120v or LP for any situation, cold! 7500kw generator on front slide out, two high output roof AC's through Newmar's ducted supply and return in ceiling for quiet operation, Island bedroom with thick and very comfortable queen luxury mattress in great shape, needs nothing, coach is fantastic, a rare find and selling below market value.

Well kept, all maintenance done including roof just preventatively resealed, see pics, presents perfect. All fluids and filters done in last 2000 miles. I previously owned a '03 Newmar Dutch Star with over 150,000 miles on it. Spartan chassis was great, 350 ISC engine was great after replacing external turbo parts. I upgraded to this '05 Newmar Mountain Aire, quad slide with the 400 ISL and it was like going from a low-end Chevy to a Cadillac! I spent years searching for the most perfect all-around RV in the most perfect condition, with the right miles on it and the right options. My work situation has changed from retirement to years more work so I am selling rather than let it sit. There are two comps (not quite as nice or as well equipped) as mine on RV Trader right now at $90K and $110K, neither is close to these options or conditions.

Built right in the sweet spot of 2004-2006, the best RV's ever made. Known as The Decade of Excellence. Roaring economy, luxury improvements peaked, my ONLY searches are always pre-2009. The economy collapsed late 2008 and for half a decade the few RV's sold were terrible quality built with limited staff as most RV companies went out of business or were bought. Newmar survived. But in 2009 the engines all got DPF (diesel particulate filters) and then even worse the DEF exhaust fluid was added in 2011. Emissions requirements forced CAT out of RV engines in 2008, so good this has the Cummins.

There are similar comps but not as nice options, or as low miles, or as pretty and well maintained at $85.5K to $110K on RV Trader and others up to and over $125K on RVT.

OK, here is more than you really want to know but everything from here on:
Here are the negatives:
• Two of the three gauges on the driver pillar just started acting up. They still work but calibration is off. Have not done troubleshooting (Front air, rear air, alternator). All work great.
• Michelin tires are aged out however have been stored under cover or indoors so no ozone cracking and plenty of tread. I drove 1700 miles in the spring.
• Front has been painted (as many are now) with Rhino type paint for maintenance free.
• The small corner front day/night shade behind the driver needs to be restrung.
• Some paint checking, visible in dark strips but looks great at twenty feet, even ten feet.
• One rope light is out, replacement already obtained from Newmar and included to be installed.
Power footrest on passenger seat in non-operable but the stair cover works fine to keep pets or anyone out of the well when traveling.
• All of these mid-2000's had track issues with the heavy full sold wood doors to the bedroom. Door works fine but hard to get it to lock in place open. Unsure if Newmar ever came up with a solution.
That's it, and nobody else would even bring this stuff up but if you come, I want you to be ready to buy, you need to know it all. You will be surprised with MUCH worse AFTER purchase on any other ones are since nobody else reveals what they know.

Full Listing:
• Under 100K miles(74K) on a Cummins 400 HP ISL with the Allison MH3000 transmission (many say they just get broken in at 75K miles).
• No evidence of rear, main, seal leak (virtually every RV seen shows leaking).
• 10,000 pound hitch and tow capacity with all wiring for towing anything
• One piece fiberglass roof with no evidence of any leaks ever and fully maintained
• 2000 watt inverter and 7500 watt Quiet Generator (diesel)
• Optional HydroHot diesel hot water and forced air heat system
• No rust under the belly, no evidence of prior damage, delamination, nothing.
• Quality solid wood cabinets, no staples, no particle board, only quality brands
• Solid wood light colored natural glossy maple cabinets.
• Easy to move through the coach on the road with the slides in
• Four power slides allow flexibility for space on overnights and full apartment space in camp, incredible.
• Replaced skylight, with plenty of windows, bright inside during the day
• Exceptional, modern lighting throughout, including rope lighting for bright interior or mood lighting day or night.

One of the biggest issues with RV’s is they often sit for long periods of time and owners don’t “exercise them”. The high-pressure engines can have seals dry out and the rear crankshaft seal is leaking on virtually 100% of the units I’ve been under. Sometimes it isn’t a big deal but it can (and usually does) become one (eventually). It never gets better and if it springs a leak later, you might be in for a multi five figure repair ($20K or more). Often, I also see transmissions leaking when I was shopping. The very large flat pan with the “grid” is the transmission. Bone dry. The rear main seal leak is at the junction of that and the engine and oil weeps down between the two making a mess. This is all dry, perfect. Also, no fuel pump or lift pump leaks (also common) like on the earlier 350hp engine.
The bank of filters is all under the battery tray and enclosed in a classy cover. So much better than my old unit for self-service. Speaking of batteries, just replaced all house/coach in 2019. Also changed ALL oils, engine, generator, all filters, fuel, everything except transmission. The trans is already equipped with Transynd fluid instead of common Dextron which is another incredible upgrade, basically lifetime transmission fluid. Tires will have to be replaced at some point due to age but we just drove it 1700 miles at 70 mph (actually averaged 68) and it was flawless and tires look great. Some of the clear coat is checking on the striping full paint exterior due to living its entire life in NON-SALT California and Texas, but was doing that on my old one too which came from the North. Still looks great.

Standard equipment on the Mountain Aire is impressive and can be seen in the link for the brochure attached.
Then, this coach was ordered with some very high dollar, life enhancing options.
Hydronic Zone Heating System: an amazing upgrade usually only seen on the highest end RV’s. Instead of only using electric or having to LP gas to heat your water, this Hydronic is a diesel fueled, constant hot water system which means you can offer showers to everyone in the RV park if you want, endless hot water and not using up LP fuel to heat it. If we ever decided to do the floors in wood, the Hydronic can also supply radiant floor heating if ordered as an option or installed. This is found for the last few years on half million-dollar comparable units.
Summer Maple Hardwood Cabinets. Beautiful finish and a nice light wood that really brightens up the interior. Very contemporary compared to most interiors.

Norcold Four-Door Refrigerator with Icemaker and Water Dispenser and is huge for an RV, built in, has thru the door cold, filtered water as well as can run on both AC or on LP gas so you can go “off the grid” and keep your ice cream rock hard with LP gas and not running the generator.

Automatic Seeking and Retractable Satellite Dish. Press a button, it rises up, rotates to automatically find the proper satellites and you have your cable TV. Currently set up for Dish, originally set up for DirecTV, easy to switch.

Automatic Generator Start on Low-Battery or Thermostat-Temperature Setting. Great feature, can set it to automatically turn on if you need to leave pets in the coach, or just want it to maintain a reasonable temp while you are away.

Trip Tek Electronic Travel, Trip, Engine Information is displayed on the ($2,000) upgraded Alpine stereo with BT and CarPlay, as is the rear view back up camera.

Girard® Power Side Awnings with Wind Sensor Remote Control. These are motorized and the large one has a wind/rain sensor to automatically retract it to avoid damage if you are inside or away.

Splendid Washer/Dryer: can do light laundry if needed

Full-Paint, very important when buying 15 years old so it looks current, no issues when you provide pics to a "resort" with an age restriction.

Oak Hardwood Cabinets with Raised-Panel Double Cathedral Doors, Drawers with Metal Guides (all of these are Amish made, superior quality and durability throughout.

Leather Heated Front Seats with Eight-Way Power Lumbar Support (nice, heated)
