Amy my wife like you thinks she would rather have a shorter coach so we can fit in to more places. I would rather have the room lol! Hum not exactly sure how all this will go just yet but something is going to happen before to long. I would truly hate to give up my newell quality having to go to a smaller coach. What did you buy? Thanks againSmile

Robert, the problem with shorter coaches is they do not have side entry.  Most coaches in the class A category have front entry.  Class C of course have side but are smaller.

I know of at least two Newell coaches he built with his lifts on them as he was in a wheelchair.

#707, a 2004 also had a wheelchair lift when it was for sale back in 2009.
#686, a 2004 listed a wheelchair platform lift in December of 2015.
#576, a 2001 3 slide had a Braun Wheelchair Lift as of 2011

Thanks Micahael!

Hi, couple of questions are ther air conditions cruise air and did they cool really well or just ok? I understand that control boards are no longer available for cruise airs but are possibly rebuildable.  The slide outs I assume go in in and out ok and sealed up good? Thanks for your time, Robert

The ac units are SCS not cruise air. They work fine. There is solution to the control board issue on this forum
