[Steve] Please comment on your experiences obtaining parts, both accessory and drive train, for older motorhomes. I'm looking at a ' 72 Newell Coach. I would be particularly interested in experiences with Newell and Bluebird.
We have a 1983 Newell and have no problem finding parts. Come visit our website and take a look at our "bus".
1972 is even older than ours. I would be concerned about the ability to service the engine and drivetrain. Check with your area mechanics to see about that. The rest of the coach uses appliances and parts that are pretty much the same as in other RV's. A water pump, an A/C unit, a refrigerator, a heater, etc are standard in all RV's and not specific to Newell.
