Jon, I feel for ya brother, I really do. I've been there and done that and it totally sucks. Need to find out how we can get you back on the road or in another coach maybe. And how do we do it without getting you kicked out of the house or in hot water with the better half??? Will she let you own another Newell, or is that like a bad four letter word?

Marc, you have some valid questions and thought here. As I have mentioned talking with you and also from previous posts around here, I believe unless of course we encounter some other bs crises in the country, the price of Newell's will start to climb up and dry up. With the factory only manufacturing 24 a year and more and more individuals finding out what they truly are, this will be par for the course. So, if this continues, some of us will just have to re-manufacturer some of the older ones and put them in pristine condition etc..... Just my thoughts on the matter.

Sounds like I bought my '98 at the right time. Maybe that'll make up for the condo we just sold.

LMAO! That is pretty funny Marc. I hear ya brother! I'm sure Forest could come out better on that coach than his last one, not that he did that bad on it. But since the condo is now sold too, maybe Forest has a quad lined up and will sell you the dual unit and the rollin' condo lifestyle just keeps moving up to the penthouse suite with the ocean view etc....

Not gonna be that easy. Yall can start a bidding war if yall want. But right now we're sitting in a really nice rv park in Arco, ID. Huge grassy lots, free breakfast each morning, lots of places to ride the RZR. Kinda hard to leave a place like this.
I guess if you want mine, just find me another 2 slide with the steering rear axle and I'd consider an even trade

I know of a couple more folks that might want to get into the bidding war. But Marc's offer isn't too bad if you wanted to go to a tripple or quad Forest. I know of such an animal.

Before anyone gets the wrong idea I am NOT interested in selling my '98. We found what we want in the condition we want for the price we wanted. Doesn't get any better than that!

Prices have definitely gone up. When we were looking at 03-04 quads last year you could find them for around 220-240k. I don't see any of that now for a good one. That's why we ended up buying the 06 Travel Supreme Select. They just crept out of our price range and ai didn't see them coming back down.

There is perhaps another way to interpret the current prices. The number of coaches for sale rises and falls during the year with the peak typically being in the spring. I believe I've seen this pattern for all coaches through the years including Newells. The sellers have various asking prices for similar coaches. I'm guessing the lower priced ones sell first and the higher priced ones hang around. Since the flow of Newell coaches is never great the number on the market goes down and the asking prices goes up as we move forward from springtime. If you look at the posting dates in the classifieds here you will notice that the listed coaches have been on the market for awhile with few exceptions. Patience is a virtue for both sellers and buyers.

Jimmy, Would you go back to a Newell if a good one in your price range popped up? Or are you going to Travel Supreme for a few years regardless?

I never thought I'd own anything but a Newell after the service we got with ours. We just couldn't justify the price. For now we will enjoy our Travel Supreme but some day I'd love to get back in a Newell. The quality and toughness is unmatched. Whoever buys our 91 will be getting a wonderful coach.
