This 1996 Newmar Dutch Star 3757 is not my typical featured deal. The fact that it is 22 years old is something to consider, but it has been so thoroughly and beautifully renovated that it qualified as something I would consider a good deal.
An RV is like the human body. If you take care of it, it will give you many years of pleasure. When a coach has been stored long term indoors, has meticulous maintenance records and regular servicing, no matter the age, it should be considered as a cost effective way to experience a luxury coach such as Newmar.
If you’re planning to spend lots of time in RV parks you should keep in mind that many of them have an age requirement and won’t allow motorhomes older than 10 years in the park. However, if your rig looks good some parks will work with you.
This coach features:
This 38 ft. diesel model has only one slide and 86,000 miles on it so roughly 3,900 miles per year driven. It can comfortably sleep 5 and has 3 awnings to chill outside with.
What caught my attention was not so much the outside but the beautiful interior work done. It has many upgrades and has been completely renovated.
Let’s see the renovations…
Hard wood floors throughout …
Other new replacements include pull out beds, memory foam mattress, A/C unit, faucets, counter tops, toilet, batteries, starter, power inverter, water heater, and tires all within last 3 months. Plus the cabinets have been resurfaced.
Let’s have a look.
With a newly coated roof plus an engine that has been thoroughly tested and repaired, this is one I would buy myself! The coach is being sold by a private seller so I have no information on them, not even where the unit is located!

You save: Nothing! You actually pay more than double the low retail value, but with all these upgrades its still a bargain to me!
