Welcome David & Thersa,
I noticed that you purchased coach #513, we have coach # 512 (99' Newell w/2 slides).
You made the right choice when it comes to a Newell. I am on my 3rd one and I love the simple electrical systems and easy access to almost all components. I also like the fact that I can vacuum around the foot of my bed with the slide in! Great engineering!
Try to attend the mini rally in Austin, TX in April 2009 at the LaHacienda RV Resort. We would love to meet you! You can read about the rally and who is attending under the thread "Mini Rally".
