So that would mean if Clarke and I could find out our Numbers we could use Original #384 etc.?

I don't see any reason you could not do that if there were any such numbers actually marked on coaches prior to 1983. It should be an interesting search. Just need a way to differentiate the number from the duplicate numbers that existed until mid 2007 when Newell skipped from 815 (next number would have been 816) to 1200 to make up for the missing 384 coaches built prior to 1983.

Let us know if you find any markings that might give a clue as to a sequence number.

on with the search! I found that our Coach was built for a John Law when working at the Entrance Door and Clarke has found that theirs was built for a Leonard Law. Our Numbers should be close but who knows.
Coach Number somewhere around 380- 1st Series

My Coach is a 1987 3-axle. It is #103. It is mostly charcoal grey with blue and light blue-ish, silver stripes. It got a 8V92 Silver with just over 149k miles currently on it. That's going to be changing real soon as soon as I figure out the generator problem! It was built for Bud and Shirley Allen in 1987. I am the 3rd owner. It is obvious that all previous owners took immaculate care of this coach and I will be no different. I look for ward to meeting some of you and as soon as I can figure it out I will post some pictures!

Jennifer,

Welcome to the group.

I do want to warn you guys, that I spoke with Jennifer on the phone, and she is one savvy gal when it comes to electrical and mechanical. So, I am looking forward to learning as much from her.

Would love to hear an update on the genny situation.

And if you can, come to Creede and hang out. It's not an intimidating crowd, and the conversation is a lot broader than Newell :-)

When you get a chance we would love to hear the story of how you came to own the coach, what made you decide on a Newell, what else you considered, what else you may have owned or used for travel.
