My buddy and I stopped and looked at this Newell in March of this year when we were staying out at Ft Clinch. It’s not in too bad of shape. If someone really wanted a decent gas motor home it’s not too bad. I think as old as some things are getting he would need to come down on his price a bit, tires etc especially with it mostly sitting. My buddy thought it was awesome and would have bought it if he did not already have a Bluebird...

Good Old Bird, You asked why I wouldn’t want to take it on the road and I really don’t know how to explain it !!

My neighbor has the coolest car in the neighborhood A show quality 55 Chevy with all the power windows, Steering, AC and an engine that purrs like a 500 hp kitten. But I wouldn’t want to drive it to California or as a daily driver. Just too much at stake to be comfortable leaving it in a parking lot or RV park.

I ride motorcycles and much prefer my stealth operation to some of the Loud, Obnoxious people who seem to want everyone knowing that they have arrived. My buddy calls it the “Mommy, Look at me” syndrome.

My taste is just a little different. I want something that performs the job I want it to do and does it without putzing and fiddling with it every time I use it.

An old Newell could be a great thing but it’s just not for me. It is a cool old rig.

Max.

That old Newell is cool,and while it was state of art in 1970,its pretty basic by my spoiled standards!
KInda like my 71 wanderlodge,cool,but not very usable for my needs,and the bathroom and showers are so small!
(large bodies or fatasses will not really fit so well)
I did gut mine 71,and made things a little better for a big guy!

I agree Randy, they are not terribly practical for most. It’s going to take someone that really appreciates it to take that on. Hope they do not gut it, it’s in good shape, it’s like a time capsule.. wonder if Newell has a museum would be good for them to show their history.

If a person could use it as is its super cool,on my 71 Bird i wanted a bigger shower and a better kitchen and it never stopped from there!
We plan on putting some miles on the Bird,so we need it to be "our" way.
We also do long trips,many miles every summer so a diesel was important to us.
Lotsa work!

This is a really old shot. That bike has been gone for years but it still brings back great memories to see this picture. My friends called it “The Mule” because it was truly an all purpose machine. Equally comfortable on long trips or plunking around on National Forest dirt roads

It’s kind of funky looking but fits my philosophy of “doing the job I want it to do”, without lots of fuss or fiddling required. Just check the tires and get going.

My current Road machine is a newer version of that same model. It’s literally the best machine I’ve ever ridden and it’s ten years old. I’m sure a current model would be even more impressive. They just keep getting better and better.
