Welcome to the Newmar Kountry Klub. By visiting our website, you either are a potential Klub member, current Klub members or simply curious to know what we are about. Our membership is made up of over 3,700 owners of the Newmar brand of recreational vehicles. We not only share an interest in current information on our particular brand, but also are interested in communicating and meeting other owners.
Newmar Kountry Klub encompasses members from both the United States and Canada. There are nine regions which you can find listed on this website. Each region has a Region Director who hosts an annual rally, communicates with and leads State/Provincial Directors in their efforts, as well as offers support at the International Rally. Many States/Provinces have State/Provincial Directors that work with chapters and members in the State/Province and they too host a State/Provincial rally each year. Local chapters can be found in most States/Provinces, or a combination of State/Provinces, and are active in hosting rallies closer to home. In addition to an International Rally that is held at various locations around the United States, you can see that many opportunities are available to meet your expectations.
You may wonder why we would undertake leading such a vast array of volunteers. The answer is simple…we love the RV lifestyle and have reaped the rewards of friendships across North America. Like most Rvers, we began with camping in the back of a pick-up, moved up to truck campers, then several travel trailers and finally joined the ranks of the Class A unit. When we bought our first Newmar, we joined the Klub knowing little about what it had to offer. We were still working fulltime, so for the first couple of years we were not actively involved. However, we finally retired and joined the two chapters in our home state of Ohio and quickly learned that these were awesome people with much to share and much to see.
After service as Vice President and then President of one of the chapters, in 2011 we were appointed Region 6 Directors and held that position for five years. In 2015 we were elected Members-at-Large and traveled all over the United States and Canada for the next three years, listening to our members ideas and suggestions. You also might have met us as hosts of the Rally in the Keys, as workers for the many years at the International Rally, at the Tampa Super Show, or at the Newmar Owners and Friends Luncheon we host in southwest Florida, along with the Florida Pelicans Chapter. And because of our love for the people and Klub activities, we became members of eight chapters around the country. Members can join as many chapters as they wish.
Our first year as International Directors did not go as planned. We will go down in history as the first International Directors to cancel an international rally. Of course, it was the right thing to do under the auspices of the worldwide pandemic, but it was quite disappointing nonetheless. But onward we went and were able to host a very uplifting and grateful International Rally in Lewisburg, WV in 2021.
Plans are well underway for the 36th Newmar Kountry Klub International Rally in Rock Springs, WY. Plans are being developed, and as information becomes available we will be sharing what to expect in 2022. In additions, our Region Directors, State/Provincial Directors and Chapter officers are also busy making plans for 2022.
Another opportunity for members includes many Special Events that volunteer hosts plan and lead to exciting locations from Alaska to Key West. Information on all our rallies and special events can be found in the Calendar of Events page of the website. And just as a note to new members, registration dates for events are published and many sell out within minutes. Our online registration process allows for registration of only the number of units advertised for the event. So be ready to push the launch (submit) button when the time opens for registration. Each completed registration is timed. If you do not find yourself a winner, call the Klub office to get on the standby list. There are always emergency cancellations, and the standby list may get a much hoped for phone call from the office. There is no deposit needed and you have the option to accept or refuse if you get called.
If you have not yet decided whether to join the Newmar Kountry Kub, you might be interested in knowing what the benefits are. Although all the above listed events might be enough, we also have discounts from: Farm & City Insurance (the first RV specific policy in the US), Coach-Net (RV roadside assistance), Passport America (campground discounts), Motorhome Tires (they bring a new set of tires to your location), and SkyMed (premier emergency travel services).
For information and updates on all events and benefits, be sure to read the Legacy magazine and the Happenings newsletter that is emailed as needed.
Our goal is to continue making new friends wherever we go. As always, we remain available if you have questions or suggestions. We can be reached through the Klub office by email email@example.com or phone
Be safe out there,
