Newell or Prevost? Which would you choose?

I recently had the privledge of meeting some very nice, friendly, easy to talk too and open owners of a Newell and Prevost. All of course thought they had the best. I would die for either .

The owner of the Newell (1.5 mil) thought his coach was Motorhome RV in mind from the ground up. It was designed as an RV from the ground up, not a conversion. Which made me think..... Hmm,,, But which is the best?

Opinion? Of course, but I wanted to know which had the longevity, toughest or most durable, quality, etc. A showboat is nice but you may want to know what's under the paint, what's under the skin, what's in the build, etc.

So here is the poll... Which would you buy today if you had the opportunity? Money is not an issue. We are not talking about value, cost or prestige. Just raw machine.

Newell? Prevost? Other?

I like the new Foretravel IH-45 but out of the 2 listed the Newell would be my choice.

I need to borrow one of each, say, for a couple of years, before I can make an informed choice

Don't know enough about either one to pick one.

Have visited the Newell factory in Miami, OK...to get a part (gasket) for a 5th wheel.

Depends on who the conversion is on the Prevost...I'd be hard press not to pick a Marathon coach...I made the mistake of going over to the factory while visiting the Monaco factory (right across the street) to see my Signature being built. Martha and I have been thinking about one ever since......

Newell or Prevost? I have never had been inside either one, but a test drive on each one for a few monthes, would really help me make a decision.

Foretravel IH-45. But if I was going to buy one, I would go to each of the 3 factories, get a thorough tour, and test drive each. Then I would make my decision. In the case of the Prevost, it would be the upfitter of my choice.
