Default LCL - Newell Forum Administrative Changes Now Taking Place

Hello fellow members and forum readers! Hope all is going well for everyone in their travels so far this year. I would like to make an announcement regarding some changes I mentioned earlier on that would be taking place. Well the time is now….

First off, I would like to thank all of you members for your continued efforts and contributions to the knowledge base we have been creating which has helped hundreds of luxury coach owners, especially those whom own Newell Coaches.

When we embarked on the journey of starting the original Newell Coach forum Newell Classic some nine years ago, we never anticipated the great success this community has turned out to be. Becoming a major voice and information database for the majority of Newell owners as well as other luxury coach owners, has not been without its challenges. Many of us in the administration department have spent countless dedicated hours tendering to this great website, forum and its family of wonderful members.

I am here to announce that this is the end of an amazing chapter for the current ownership and administrators. The baton has been passed to a friend of thousands in the RVing community, Mr. Andy Robinwitz who manages various other RV related forum communities such as iRV2.com. I feel this as a great honor and privilege to be able to turn the helm of this site and its sister sites dedicated to Newell Coaches and the luxury coach family over to his dedicated and caring team. This site will continue to be in very good hands, Andy understands how special forum communities are and over the years members from his forums have joined him to help keep an eye on the sister communities. This transfer of ownership will guarantee that this site will continue to be a free site for its members and readers alike for years to come. This will create a win win situation for everyone, no worries about a site going away and having a dedicated team who will listen to the members needs and invest in making sure our community meets the needs of it's members.

The current administration team will be around as long as it takes to insure a successful transition of the forum and Newell sites to Andy’s team at Social Knowledge LLC.

I too look forward to sharing and participating as an owner of a Newell Coach, not of a forum, now spending quality time with fellow coach owners and friends for many years to come. I am very excited and look forward to obtaining another coach so I too can concentrate on the love I have for the open road.


Thank you all again and again for allowing me and the others to serve you, and please continue to enjoy the Luxury Coach Lifestyle!

Hi everyone,


I know announcements like this feel awkward, online forum communities are very special and personal places. I understand this and we'll try our hardest to make sure the community continues to be the same amazing place it has always been. I started my first forum on Airstream Trailers 11 years (link) ago and adopted other RV forums in the years since including iRV2 which some of you might be members of. Having worked for so many years with forums I know that it's going to take us some time to get to know each other and for me and my team to earn your trust. That being said, we are very excited to be here and look forward to learning more about these amazing Newell Coaches.


Most people don't understand how much work it takes to keep a forum running. Ken's done an amazing job over the years and I am honored he has entrusted us to continue what he started. You all will see some new faces around here. Janet H was an Admin on Airstream Forums and over the years she started helping me keep an eye on the other forums in our network. Tech Admin (Jeff) is a software developer and helps us resolve technical issues. I'll let them post their own intros so you can get to know them.


As for me, I am from Dallas, Texas and have two daughters aged 3 and 1. So I'm still dealing with lots of diapers changes and teaching them about the basics of life. I LOVE forums and truly understand how special they are. I feel it's very important that any online community be managed by peers. We work really hard to make sure the mods and admins are empowered and trained to use the tools to zap spammers and deal with other community management issues. One day I'd love to own a Newell, I can't think of a better/nicer coach to own but I have a ways to go in saving up before I can afford one. I look forward to meeting you all and getting to know you in the years ahead.


Regards,


Andy

Ken and his team have done a fine job with this site and I thank those who have been dedicated to making this site what it is. I know of irv2 which is another great forum. I look forward to keeping in touch with Ken here on the forum and also getting to know the new admin team and new owner Andy.

I would have wasted a lot of time and money if it wasn't for this forum. I would like to send my deepest thanks to the old administration team and hopes that the new ones will continue the fine tradition.

Does this mean that my Airstream will be welcome here or my Newell will be welcome there?

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Steve, which 1958 Airstream model do you have? Also, where do you store all your fun toys?

Wanna say thanks for the great work that Ken and Erika have done, saved me a ton of money, time and frustration, not to mention being made to feel very welcome. Ken, you've done a great job, hate to see the changes but totally understand, Erika, you are a sweetheart and don't get enough credit.

Thanks
John
