rv-pro.com May 2020 • RV PRO • 29 Vice President of Sales and Marketing John Sammut came tooling onto the scene of Newmar's video presentation wearing an Indy 500 uniform while riding in a golf cart rather than a race car, a nod to the planned Indianapolis Convention Center location. Company President Matt Miller subsequently trumpeted the company's vision for the future now that it is owned by Winnebago, and also unveiled the impressive lineup of new offerings that has become expected of the luxury motorhome manufacturer. "It is our goal that this virtual experience highlights the changes and enhancements for our 13 brands and gives you comfort that Newmar views business as usual for our dealer network," Miller said. End – & Beginning – of an Era Business as usual is a relative term in the times of a pandemic, but Miller mostly attempted to assure dealers that the sale to Winnebago last year didn't mean the end of the family method of doing business. He said it had become apparent that there would not be a third generation of Millers to lead the company whenever he decides to call it a career. (Miller took over the company from his father Mahlon Miller, who was a founder.) Miller also said he had learned that the skills needed to run a multi-million- dollar company were different from those needed to run a billion-dollar company – which Newmar soon could grow to become. The Bay Star 2813 gas-powered motorhome (top), built on the Ford F Series Class A motorhome chassis, features a double slide-out with a standard queen bed and a forward living area. The Bay Star 3112 (below), includes two slides, a spacious pantry and a pair of sofas facing each other in the living area. OF CONNECTIVITY WIFI & LTE KINGCONNECT.COM
