Hoping to own a mid 90s 45 soon
#1

Happy to join. I'm from the mid Michigan area and travel with my wife Ashleigh, our son Cole (9), daughter Camryn (7), and Winston our Golden Retriever.  Often times my mother also travels with us.

I'm here to gather information and avoid any mistakes when purchasing a mid 90s Newell so that it will be ready for our planned summer trip out west.

At present, I own a Wanderlodge, two fifth wheels, and a travel trailer that I will have to part with before the Newell purchase; otherwise, my wife might insist on me sleeping in one of them indefinitely!

I’ll be exploring around and hope to post some questions after I’ve gained more knowledge and get serious about a particular coach to purchase.

Thanks in advance,
Ben Berry

We have a 1993 that needed cosmetic updating. We love ours as it has no slides and fits our lifestyle perfectly. If I won the lottery, I would still have a custom built non slide bus.

The advice given to me was "make sure you buy a nice one as you might be living in it one day".  Thankfully she hasn't put me out yet, but she knows how much I like the coach I'm afraid she'd think I might enjoy it a bit too much.  Wink

Welcome and you already have your feet wet with a Wanderlodge so Newell should not be a surprise. Slide coach or no slide?
