2017 Newmar King Aire Luxury Motorcoach 4519 Review
The Newmar King Aire is RV royalty. Holding the highest rank among luxury motorcoaches, the King Aire is as powerful as it is glamorous.
Six luxurious floorplans are available to choose from, and we’ve decided to explore the King Aire 4519. Perfect for a couple or a group, this residential layout maximizes space. It has a front gross axle weight rating of 20,000 lbs, rear gross axle weight rating of 20,000 lbs, gross vehicle weight rating of 54,000 lbs and gross combined weight rating is 74,000 lbs. The King Aire 4519 has an overall length of 4’11”, overall height of 13’04”, interior height of 84”, interior width of 95.5” and overall width of 101.5”. For liquids, the Motorcoach 4519 has a grey tank capacity of 80 gallons, sewage capacity of 60 gallons, water capacity of 105 gallons and propane capacity of 22 gallons.
The 2017 King Aire is a masterpiece on wheels. Its exterior features a dynamic pair of front and rear caps equipped with full LED headlights and taillights. King Aire sits on a Spartan K3 tag axle chassis, supporting a powerful steel superstructure. Controlling the air inside, the sidewalls and ceiling have 5/8” laminated foam insulation. Rear hitch, mud flaps, air horns and hydraulic leveling jacks are all standard equipment. Two power pass-through storage trays are easily accessed from either side, and the engine is easily accessed through the power door. King Aire’s fiberglass roof is equipped with walk-on decking and an integrated gutter rail. To top it all off, the exterior features full-paint Masterpiece Finish, making this motor coach the most beautiful thing on the road.

King Aire’s chassis is definitely something to boast about. Featuring a 600-horsepower Cummins ISX engine, King Aire is equipped with a Cummins connected diagnostic system. All chassis information is displayed electronically on the dash, while trip travel information is displayed on the rear view monitor screen. The driver’s seat pedals, steering column and mirrors have memory settings, and the steering wheel has power tilt. If you want to be extra safe, you can request OnGuard Mitigation Adaptive Cruise System. The dash radio comes with touch screen navigation, dual monitors and a Harman/JBL 360-watt sound system and subwoofer.
More impressive than King Aire’s construction and mechanics, is its décor. When you walk inside, you are surrounded by beauty. Sable Maple hardwood cabinetry features high gloss finish and concealed hinges. If that’s not good enough for you, you can request Ginger Glazed Cherry High Gloss, Cashmere Rift Oak High Gloss or Havana Rift Oak High Gloss. All fabrics come from Ralph Lauren’s home collection – soft to the touch and woven in the finest mills. You can choose between four décor options – Arundal, Camber, Dover and Durham.

Luxurious accommodation is nothing without equally luxurious meals. King Aire’s kitchen provides you with the appliances and counterpace that make gourmet dining a daily ritual. High polished solid surface countertops provide you with ample space to prepare food, while the stainless steel sink, equipped with a touch kitchen faucet, offers ample space to rinse your fruit and veggies. The kitchen is equipped with a convection microwave, recessed two-burner gas cooktop, Whirlpool stainless steel refrigerator (with a water dispenser) and a dishwasher located in a stainless steel drawer. You can store your condiments and non-perishables in the large pantry. When dinner’s ready, serve it at the hide-a-leaf dinette, located beside a panoramic window.
After a heavy meal, you’ll want to kick back and relax in the living room. If you want to watch TV, you can sprawl out on the hide-a-bed sofa, located directly across from the powerlift television. The Bose CineMate home theater system comes with universal remote. The Sony Ultra High Definition 49” TV comes with a Blu-Ray disc player and Winegard Rayzar automatic digital TV antenna. If you can’t live without being connected, you’ll love that the King Aire comes with a wireless router, providing you with Internet. If you love TV as much as you love nature, you’ll be happy to know that there is an exterior entertainment center in the storage compartment featuring a 43” 4K UHD TV and sound bar.
King Aire’s bathroom is the most luxurious in the industry. Aside from the stunning décor and mirrored tile backsplash, the bathroom is equipped with the space and fixtures that define luxury. The full tiled shower walls and floor are beautiful, and more importantly, easy to maintain. The shower even comes with a fold down seat and assist handle. Equipped with two sinks and ample counter space, the bathroom can comfortably fit two people, allowing you and your partner to brush your teeth at the same time. For your convenience, the bathroom comes with a washer/dryer, making Laundromats a thing of the past. To prevent bathroom line-ups, the King Aire has a second washroom, equipped with a toilet, linen closet and sink.
Last but not least is the bedroom. Equipped with a King bed, the bedroom is the perfect escape after a long day on the road. It provides you with more than enough space to store your belongings – there are two nightstands, an overhead compartment, dresser and wardrobe (featuring cedar paneling). Before you go to sleep, you can turn on your Sony 49” high definition TV.
