Wow, I am stunned at this comment. We are at the Newell Rally at Elkhorn Ridge and have met and talked with many non Newell owners here....in fact we have 3 Prevost owners, a Bluebird owner, and 3 Foretravel owners here as part of our rally.....they don't think we are snobs at all. We own a 1982 Newell, and certainly don't think we are anything special. We certainly think our coaches are special, and well built. Most of the Newells here are late 90's into mid 2000's.....certainly way above the class of our 31 year old Newell. We spent about an hour talking to a gentleman who owns one of the rare 47 foot Newells....a 2007....last night. At 47' he is 11' longer than our 36' coach. We had an open house for our 1982 Newell, and lost track of the late model Newell owners who came by "ooohing and awwwing" at our humble abode. I think sometimes people are predisposed to profile others based on their own preconceived notions, and it is a shame that they would take the time to denigrate, and insult a group of people they know nothing whatsoever about.
At one time I had the same impression this gentleman has, but about Prevost owners, but once I actually spent time talking with them I found out they were just like everyone else.
If you are still here (today is Thursday) please walk over to site 106 and let's sit down and talk.....I will be more than happy to introduce you to dozens of NON snobby Newell owners. The question is, are you willing to have your mind changed?
Here are some of the "broken down" coaches:
