Bob, I agree about trying to find some out of another coach. I have seen them and I will also check with a couple of bus nuts I know as they surely know where to find them or may even have some laying around.

Neweller, I would greatly appreciate any leads you can provide. I plan on driving the Coach from San Diego to Ohio starting May 7th. Perhaps if there is someone on the way.... Of course I'm probably getting the cart before the horse, the coach needs much repair and maintenance before I start concentrating on "like to have" items. We'll just see how well the Carole Ann does on the trip home. Thanks again for all of the pictures!

Bob, I checked with two of my sources today but they do not have any bunks. One told me they just build them when they need em'. I'll keep my ears and eyes peeled. I knew a guy in southern California that had a bunch of buses and a couple had really cool pull down bunks. I'll try and locate his number since he is in the know and that could right in your path heading out of Riverside.

GREAT info, thanks for your help......and if you know where I can find some bunks.....
Hoosier Daddy has a beautiful bed and breakfast in Kimmell, Indiana where he also lives, and keeps his Newell. Be sure to stop by and say "Hi" for us. We spent one night there on his property about a year ago...Dean and his wife are great hosts! Would be great if his old bunks would fit your coach. The ceiling should be more than strong enough to hold the weight of the bunks and those sleeping in them.

Unfortunately the bunks in Deans coach are built-in and not the foldaway ones or that would be an easy option. Bob and Peni are seeking out "Pull Down" or "Drop Down" bunks that will fold up and away, like the ones Richard E has in his coach. Don't think Richard wants to sell or give his away though, his kids might want a place to stay when they get a break from college.

I have to agree that Dean's bed and breakfast is a wonderful looking place and anyone going through the area could make a reservation and just chill out at the B&B for a break from their coach or heck for that matter if you're just traveling through in your car and need a place to roost.

Hello again, the Carole Ann got us safely from SanDiego to Ohio in one piece. The steering is a little sloppy, the brakes need adjusted and the dash electrical is so bad we had to disconnect it. I'll be posting questions in the appropriate forums as time goes by to get information on the systems that need attention. Right now I'll be attempting to locate a few of the missing parts that I'm aware of such as the Newell Coach emblem from below the windows and the steering wheel horn cap. Thanks to everyone for their help so far!

Glad to hear you made it home safe. What engine is your Newell equipped with? What MPG's did you receive along your route home?
