Hi There!


Thanks for Choosing Just Answer..


Do you happen to know the Year?


Thanks, Robert



It's a 1998. It's listed on ebay if you wanted to go check out the options. Item




First off I cringe as a RV Tech when I see any Newmar, Just for the fact they make everything so difficult to access for routine maintance..


The unit looks very nice and clean I will say that... This engine the ISB is a 5.9 L, one benefit is it is good on gas. It does lack some power however if you are not happy with the performance you can have a Banks system installed in this, which would give you way more power. HERE is a link for the 1998 5.9L that banks can do.. I hear allot of good things about them from customers. This engine was common in buses also. One thing I would also advise this is on e-bay and I would make certain to drive it and make sure there are no major leaks also check the exhaust manifold.. Hope this helps.


Thank You! Please hit ACCEPT for my efforts, Positive feedback and BONUS welcomed!!
