02-14-2013, 09:13 PM
We are trying to gauge what kind of luxury coach our members and readers own. We know many own Newell Coaches but also realize that there are many Bus Conversion owners, Wanderlodge owners, Foretravel Owners, and other high end class A motorhomes etc....

Please share with us. This will help us make this a better place for everyone.

This poll will be opened to the general public. You do not have to be a member. We will be doing other open polls in the future.

Thank You for participating!

We have owned class C and class A gassers prior to a short ownership of a Bluebird (about 2 yrs) onto a classic Newell. We now are in the market for a newer larger Newell gearing towards retirement. We have honestly considered Prevost conversion but will likely be going with another Newell.

We are Wanderlodge owners and have some good friends who own Newells. If buying new we would highly consider a Newell. Thanks administrators for a great site. Always a joy!

02-15-2013, 04:39 PM
don't own one, yet!

It's nice to see Foretravel on the list. We joined the forum back in 2008 when we were looking really hard at the Newell coaches but we couldn't find a Newell coach in our price range. We made a deal on a Foretravel in 2010. It's been a great coach and we have enjoyed traveling and living a semi-retired life. I hadn't logged on here in a while but the new look and changes to the forum are cool. I'm not a poster just a reader. I figured now would be a good time to say I enjoy this site and thanks for offering it.

Have a good one.

Thanks everyone for participating thus far and the kind regards. All in administration do appreciate it!:thumbsup: Thank You!

We are all glad to have all past, present and future owners of luxury coaches, no matter what you have. Even if you don't own a luxury coach, it doesn't matter around here. We appreciate all of those of you who read and share, no matter what you own or do not own.

my screenname wouldnt give it away would it?

I didn't see Barth on there but assumed it is considered other luxury class A. I it doesn't make the cut since the manufacturer has been out of business for over a decade. Some day we will move up to our Newell unless something changes our mind. Like a Featherlite or Liberty coach.

02-18-2013, 02:02 AM
Bob, many of us recognize the Barth as a fantastic motorcoach or luxury coach. They have quite a few ques similar to Newell's. Some people get certain years of the two coaches mixed up. I almost bought a Barth down in Riverside, CA back I believe around 2001 and I was most definitely impressed with the build quality. I had thought about adding it to the poll but knew that I had to limit things somewhere, otherwise to recognize all the great coaches such as yours, we would probably have a full page of polling options. Thank you and Deena for being a part of this site for so many years! We love you guys.

We own a Newell and are happy. :thumbsup:

Great poll! So many have participated and it's nice to see what other owners besides Newell owners are here on the forum. Please if you own something besides a Newell coach let us know, I like seeing who owns what or if you are still looking etc.

02-18-2013, 06:30 PM
Thanks Ken! You all have been the greatest around here and Deena and I appreciate all the great folks we have met around here. Out of all the forums we have been on throughout our internet years this one is by far our favorite. Keep up the great work around here and we'll always be around even if the times comes we have to give up on this wonderful lifestyle.

Deena just informed me that she will keep us going even if I can't.:thumbup:

Coaches I have owned 1993 Foretravel Grand Villa, upgraded to a 1999 Country Coach Magna Aspire, now I currently own a 2006 American Coach American Eagle.

Currently live weeknights and half of the weekends in an Automate Fifth Wheel RV - away from permanent residence due to employment. Own and take California to Tennessee trips every year or so in an 84 Toyota Dolphin MH - 4 cyl 4spd manual... I restored this unit.
Previous owner of another Automate FW, two class C Motorhomes, and started with a 1973 Prowler TT. Also a 1983 Prowler Regal 35 FW with washer and dryer.

I loved them all. They all got plenty of use and lots of miles.

I aspire to buy a Newell or Wonderlodge from the late 80's within the next 36 months for a retirement toy.

A classic stainless-and-riveted Prevost.

I own a Newell and it has been a great coach. I would not hesitate to own a late model Prevost conversion and have many friend whom do.

03-27-2013, 02:03 PM
We own a what's been wonderful to us 2006 Newell now for a little over 2 yrs. Previous to that we owned a Foretravel which we enjoyed for 6 yrs.

Just joined, in initial purchase research stages ... A 1980s or 1990s Newell has a lot of appeal for me.

Not as dedicated to the lifestyle as most of you guys, I would be a first time owner buying the coach to visit Burning Man and the Everglades, etc. Based in South Florida.
