newmar vs newell

looking at an upgrade and wondering which way to progress to.
I would be looking at a 40 ft'r with propane cook range and propane/electric frig.

Don't think you will find what you want in a Newell. $1.5 mil and up coaches don't fool with propane.

Newmar isn't in the same league as Newell

Don is correct, Newells are usually all electric unless when having a new one built you specify you want a gas range.

You may want to go to their site: Pre-Owned Coaches: Where Luxury and Savings Meet - Newell Coach

Contact sales rep Dave Prince and check whether they might have an older model pre-owned Newell trade-in that someone ordered with a gas range.

Back in 2004 we took a tour of their factory in Oklahoma and was quite impressed with the high quality build of their coaches.

Of course they were totally out of our league $$$ wise.

Good luck with your search & Safe travels---

Yeah, I've been having the same type of dilemma; I can't decide between a Pace Arrow or a Prevost

OP - Suggest you compare:

1) Newell to Prevost Based coaches

2) Newmar Upper End with Foretravel/Country Coach/Monaco/Etc. (Key here, is the upper lines of each...).

Otherwise most would consider this to be an apple to oranges comparison!

Me personally? I would pick a budget range, and then compare the upper end of the food chain to budget vs livability and buy the unit that seemed to match this the best - regardless of model year. AS LONG AS IT WAS WELL MAINTAINED! And had adequate documentation...

Fun place to be in, considering these units!

I must apologize. My laughter was directed at Fungus's comment. On a serious note, Newell is head and shoulders above Newmar. Newmar is a well built coach but not in the realm of Newell. I think you will have a hard time finding an rv fridge in a late model Newell but perhaps in one that is older. Much easier to find one in a newmar.

if you buy a newell you can have whatever you want in it.

Wish we had waited to trade in our '02 DSDP on the Magna. Now I see we could have gotten a Prevost a couple years older then our Magna for only $100,000 more!
