2016 Newmar Dutch Star


2016 Dutch Star Motorhome receives Freightliner® Ultra-Steer Passive Steering Technology and STAR foundation

The 2016 Dutch Star Motorhome in the 40’ and 43’ floor plans will have the Freightliner® all-new Ultra-Steer Passive Steering Technology. These Dutch Star coaches will offer tighter turning than a traditional chassis. A new steel super structure called The Star Foundation (Strong, True And Robust), has been engineered for the Dutch Star diesel pusher and all Newmar diesel pushers. This foundation is added to the chassis and provides more strength and support to allow for more innovation and features in the vehicle. All Dutch Star diesel pushers will have Newmar’s Comfort Drive™ Steering System to provide an easier and less tiring driving experience. The Cummins ISL 450 HP diesel engine has been upgraded to include a 3-stage engine brake system.

Exterior feature changes enhance 2016 Dutch Star motor home

It may seem like a small thing, but the 2016 Dutch Star motor home is now 2” taller than its predecessors. So are the baggage compartments, as they gain 2 inches in height. The large chrome mirrors have become a standard feature for 2016. New graphics and paint colors - Cannes, Maritime and Night Sky - have been developed for the 2016 Dutch Star.

The new sub-structure or foundation has been added to the chassis and provides more strength and support to allow for more innovation and features that customer’s desire. A new HWH® hydraulic slide-out mechanism with full-tile flooring (staggered with the tile on the main floor) has been added to the flat floor slide-outs in the living room and kitchen, a feature called “More Floor.” This new feature allows the Dutch Star to have a full-tile floor on the slide-out extensions - eliminating the need for carpet.
