We are almost finished with the purchase of Newell 420, a 1996 45' no slide.  Would be done now but the 4th slowed us down.

My wife and I have been looking at Class A coaches for a month and had spent last weekend looking at used Tiffin Busses, Monarch Diplomats, and Newmar Mountain Aires. We had just about settled on the Newmar when I typed a different set of parameters in the search engine and 420 popped up just 12 miles away.  Our lucky day!


I grew up in a town 20 miles North of the factory in Miami and returned there for a while after being in the Army.  I drove by lots of times but never thought some day I be in one.


Planning a few short trips this fall, mostly to Colorado, but early next year, look out America!

Congrats Paul. Hope you enjoy your '96 Newell as much as we have enjoyed our '92 over the past 14 years.

Welcome Paul, congratulations on purchasing a Newell. I'm on my second and haven't regretted buying quality ever. I'd rather have a 60's Mercedes than a 2020 Yugo.
