Hi Neso and welcome to this great site and world of luxury. Have you owned any other rv's? Many of us around here have owned prior motorhomes and now own a Newell, Wanderlodge or bus conversion. I previously owned a much newer Itasca class A and enjoyed it until I fell across my Newell then things changed. As long as I rv I will only own any of the previous mentioned. If I were to look at fiberglass coaches then I would consider the Foretravel. I suggest you read around the forum and make your comparisons. There are so many great members here ready to help. We really enjoy everything about the lifestyle and have no complaints.

Welcome Neso,

You've found and joined the right place for all your luxury coach needs. What year range and what brand luxury coach are you looking to buy? Newell, Prevost, Wanderlodge etc.


If Ain't a Newell, It Ain't Wurt Oonin!

Welcome Neso! Owning a coach is freeing, get in the drivers seat and head to your next spot never feeling tied down. If you get a coach that needs some work make sure you enjoy a good project. You will save money with the initial purchase but prepared to put some money, work and time into it also. You will find many different types of people who come from different walks of life but have one common interest their luxury coach.

Thanks everybody. Actually I have no idea what I'm looking for. I'll have to read most of the forum to find what I need.

Thanks for the welcome.

Really appreciated

Read all you can and you will find what you want. I have own 5 motorhomes buying the first one in 2000 knowing nothing about motorhomes. The first one was a 2000 40' Allegro Bus 1 slide. I kept for about 1 year, sold and bought a 1994 34' non slide which I kept for 1 years. Then bought 1989 40' Newell in 2002 and loved the coach, sold and in 2005 I bought a 1996 45' Newell which I still own today. 2013 I have purchase 2004 45'8" quad slide which I am on my first trip with. I am trying slides again and will have an opinion after this trip. I could be happy today with any of the three Newells I have own. Each one has something that I like and the different in price would make me satisfied with any one of the three. If I sold my 04 and 96 I would buy my 89 back but am content with what ever I left with. I know this is a lot of rambling, but I do think Newells are the way to go. Buy what Newell you like the style and the price and I'm sure you will be happy. Hope this help and this is just one person opinion. I also can email you pictures of all 3 of the different Newells I have owned.

Neso we didn't know what kind of motorhome we were interested in and to be honest we didn't even know what a Newell coach was until we went to go look at it. So glad we did we love our coach! Good luck with finding a coach.

If you like the classics (pre 1990) here is a beautiful coach for you!
