To say you need to spend 800,000 or more for luxury is ridicules.

Wonder if it is available "chassis only". That would be an affordable start for me (maybe)...Wouldn't I look great pulling in to a CG site "chassis only" and setting up a pup tent. When questioned by my neighbors I would respond " I'm Working On It".....This is what I currently own.....

I met the folks that own this Newell. They didn't like any of the paint schemes that Newell offered, so they bought it painted with primer only and drove it to Precision Paint to have it painted to their specifications.

It's the first rig shown, the one with the matching stacker trailer and golf cart.

Custom Newell paint, by Precision Paint.

I guess it is to each his own, I prefer the older 90s models, even the 80s.

Ok first of all everyone has their own opinion and will defend to the end. You have to look at what YOU need. To do that you need good solid information. The best place I've found to start is rv.org . Go there pay what they are asking then READ ALL the material they have, then look at their coach ratings and decide on years, make and models. Then go to oodle.com and set up a search for what you are looking for. This site searched all over the internet, except craigslist, and will mail you up dates of what you're looking for. The money that you spend on the rv.org will be the best RVing dollars you will ever spend!
ps I receive nothing from rv.org it's just a great bunch of information that will save you thousands of dollars down the road.

Good luck

I have to agree about RV.org. I paid the fee, got the report, and saw which units had the best experience. When I was on vacation last year, I happened to find a model I hadn't considered, but remember it ranked well on RV.org. I paid a fair price and drove it back home from Arizona. It has not given me any trouble. RV.org doesn't have pricing info, but the information they provide allows you to make an educated decision. It was worth every penny!
