Les & Cheryl,
Welcome to the forum. 2001 2 slide Newells are beautiful units! We have had our 2 slide Newell for a year & a half & are still thrilled. We have found this forum to be invaluable in two ways. It is my #1 source of information on using & maintaining the coach. It is also a great source of meeting some wonderful & talented people who are always willing to give you whatever help they can. Hopefully you will use the forum to your benefit. Also when you get your coach post some pictures as it "puts a face" on your coach. We live in the Branson, Missouri area. If you get in our area make sure you contact us. You should be thrilled with your new coach, good luck and safe travels.

Welcome aboard.

Small world. You will find the Hockwalds also cycling enthusiasts. Watch out for Clarke, he'll spank you on the road.

We have finds that breed and course Rhodesians. Those dogs live better than most people.

You're bound to have a jillion questions after you pick up your coach.

We would love to hear about your thought process on choosing a Newell.
