Newell 1545 - an American dream, a European design
Each camping bus from Newell brand is different. Every another car is exhibited is for sale on the website of the manufacturer. As I write these words, the offer includes three vehicles. The latest of them is Newell 1545.
I’ve written many time about the fact that it’s very difficult to combine the luxury and glamor with good taste. Most often I was referring with this objection to the American camper-buses, in which the selection of accessories was apparently determined by the price, on the basis of: let’s choose everything expensive, and join it together.
But now I have to say that, fortunately, this doesn’t apply to all luxury vehicles of this type. The recent achievements of the American brand Newell are the proof that luxury holidays can be glamorous, while consistent with what in Europe is now regarded as modern and tasteful.
Slide out, wall!
Already from the outside, Newell 1524 that measures 14 meters, impresses with its mighty size, metallic, almost mirror-like coating and modern LED lighting. The eyes are attracted to very large side windows. A trained eye will also notice lines that form rectangles – such contours can be find on both side of the car. These lines indicate the moving parts of the walls.
Once we park in a conveniently chosen location, we just press the button and the walls slide sideways, increasing the space inside the vehicle.
Thanks to this, Newell gets a lot of space, which is most visible in the bedroom. You can move around the big, double bed without any inconveniences.
Two bathrooms and three TVs
Anyway, kitchen looks equally nice – there you can find a large table top, next to which there’s a big touchpad that controls the onboard devices.
Bathrooms deserve a particular attention as well. Yes - the plural isn’t a mistake here, because in this mega-motorhome users have at their disposal two bathrooms with toilets. The larger has, however, a shower, which couldn’t be fitted in a big one.
The US buses, of course, couldn’t miss TVs that slide out of the cabinet. If the 47-inch screen in the living room is “occupied" by another viewer, you can always go to the bedroom and use the second receiver. But that's not all! There is a third, 29-inch screen, suspended between the driver and passenger seats.
Better than in dreams
I won’t write too much about powerful, leather chairs, stone floor or modern coffers with LEDs on the ceiling – they’re well visible in the pictures.
What cannot be seen are heated and ventilated seats for driver and passenger, audio system Marantz with Anthony Gallo speakers distributed throughout the vehicle, navigation, camera system, satellite radio or DVD and Blu-Ray players.
It’s worth noting that in Newell 1545 there’s a washer-dryer, coffee maker and even a convection oven, which is a device used so far more frequently in the catering than in domestic kitchens. Baking of four potatoes in such oven takes 12 minutes, while in a conventional oven - almost 1.5 hours!
Could you want more? Well, maybe only one million and eight hundred thousand dollars to be able to buy yourself this monster.
