Newell Gurus would like to thank Boomer for joining us.

I was going through some of the original paperwork for our 1982 Newell today and discovered that the original date of delivery to Leonard Law of Denver, CO (the original owner) was March 1, 1982.....ironically, we took delivery as the third owners on March 1, 2008....26 years to the day after it was delivered to Leonard Law.  Our Detroit Diesel 6V92 silver edition has over 158,000 miles on her and she is still going strong.....actually, she is just barely broken in.  Leonard owned the coach for 22 years keeping it in a climate controlled barn when not in use for all for all of that time before he sold it to a man named Fred Hornbacher of Palm Springs, CA who sold it to us on March 1, 2008.  Fred stored in inside for 2 of the four years he owned it, so it has only been stored outside since 2006.....still has the original paint and awnings.......amazing!  We have been living full time in our Newell since February 1, 2011, and have been travelling full time since February 1, 2012......these Newells stand up quite well to full time use.  You can read our blog (Whatsnewell) about our full time life!
