Default Hello from a couple of aussies

Hello from Western Australia,we are fast approaching the 'golden age' and planning to buy a pre 89 Newell(96" wide model) to bring back to Australia. We have joined the website so our purchase will be as well informed as possible. At the moment we are only lookers until later this year when we will fly to the US and decide on our 'new' Newell. Our regulations in Western Australia regarding L/H drive vehicles are the reason why we are looking at a coach that is manufactured before Jan1 1989 and must be 96 inches wide. Any assistance/comments will be appreciated.
Thanks
Maree and Laurie

Maree & Laurie,

Welcome to the Newell forum!

We are glad to have you aboard. Gaz is one of our forum members who actually lives in Austrailia. Hopefully, he will chime in and offer you some advice/experiences that he had bringing his Newell to Austrailia.

Good Luck hunting for your new Newell - looking is more fun than actually buying one!
