They say true beauty comes from within. And although that is true, in the case of Newmar’s 2023 Bay Star Class A motorhomes, beauty can also be observed on the outside. That’s because all Bay Stars feature an industry-exclusive Masterpiece Finish, available in three different color schemes. Also eye-catching on the exterior are the redesigned front and rear caps, the former featuring Diamond Shield protection; a one-piece molded fiberglass roof; and the available exterior entertainment system, should buyers decide to mark that option.

Inside, the ceiling height has been raised to a full 7 feet, and all-new interior design elements include Williamsburg furniture, slide-out fascia, window treatments, kitchen backsplash, and countertop edges. In the cockpit, a newly designed dash features a new Axxera radio with a 10-inch touchscreen monitor and includes capabilities to display navigation from a smart device.

Built on the Ford F-53 chassis and powered by a 7.3-liter V-8 engine, the Bay Star is available in 11 distinct floorplans, including those with full-wall slides, a bunkhouse, a rear bath, and even a wheelchair-accessible footprint with an electric lift on the oversized door. With such a variety of luxurious appointments and attention to detail, it’s easy to see the beauty inside and out of the new Bay Star.

It’s Electric

Standards include two 12-volt house batteries, a 10-watt solar panel to charge the chassis battery, and a 5.5-kW AC generator; battery and inverter upgrades are available.

Due Process

Like every Newmar motorhome, the Bay Star is built one model at a time—by hand, on the same production line—to ensure superior quality and workmanship.
