Dale Earnhardt's 1997 Newell Coach: I ALMOST Bought It! (Tour and Inspection)

I went on a 2,400 mile road trip to buy Dale Earnhardt's old 1997 Newell Coach. When I got there it was a DISASTER. Just wasting away neglected in the desert. It was amazing to inspect this piece of NASCAR history complete with original paperwork that has Earnhardt all over it. Dale is one of my personal heroes and has been as long as I can remember, however this coach just needs way too much work to be functional again.
I have been on the search for a Prevost or Newell coach to live in full time so I have been learning a ton about pre owned high line motor coach inspection. Buying a used Prevost or Newell is a big decision and a potential disaster without doing your homework first. I had several pages of inspection points I went over off camera as well as @RVing with Andrew Steele offering his input on the situation. I have been full time living in my living quarters gooseneck race trailer for a few months now and have grown to like the lifestyle so its time to step it up!
For the sake of general interest I left out the "nitty gritty" inspection of the coach. I spent 5-7 hours over the course of two days inspecting and testing every single system, every door, drawer, window, switches, hinges, water leaks, etc. I did a Skype interview with Andrew on his channel going over the inspection process and more detail about the major issues I found with this particular coach. We also discuss our observations on Newell vs Prevost coaches of this era. Check out his channel to see that video.

    I actually bought that coach from Dale. First, I was stunned to find this video. Wasn't looking for it, but was looking at a video on a 2022 model and this popped up. Second, it is so sad to see it in this condition. Dale's driver, Jimbo, was meticulous about maintaining the coach, and so were we. The folding chairs are still sitting in my attic.

    Great video. Classic seller who has paid some big money and never been able to afford or have the inclination to upkeep it. Valuable life lesson on going through everything before parting with the hard earned greenbacks! Glad that your head ruled your heart.

    Best thing to do with that is buy it, and send it back to the factory for a complete restoration. Is it worth it? Hard to say. It's really Dale's coach, but that only goes so far.

    I spoke with Dale Senior a few times at the track. And he actually took joy in not walking around the garage area in his driver suit. Yes he preferred an old T-shirt and jeans, along with dark sunglasses and a scruffy hat. Because he liked acting more like a fan. In a low-key kind of way. Drivers like himself who tried to be anonymous, would normally let the driver suit stay near the car. Not in their Motorcoach. I actually witnessed Dale Jarrett, removing his driver suit on pit Lane after a test session. And throw it inside the car. In an attempt to avoid attention from the fans.

    Would be a valuable and well sought after coach, but sadly it fell into disrepair and the seller had too high a premium on a degraded unit. The seller is in over his head, and untrained mechanics and shade tree repairs will only further diminish the value. Sad.

    Check out the older Monaco's. I have a 2000 Dynasty and I love it now...Yes I had to fix a lot of different things, but it is a sweet coach now...and the Banks kit makes it even nicer.

    jeez , I had a 04 fleetwood excursion pusher appraised at 55K with 29k miles on it... I get that its a tag axle and previously owned by dale senior but STILL.. if anyone knows anything about these things, they get SHOOK apart on road trips. The stuff is gonna come apart and not be perfect. Now, I think you were being a little too picky. its a 97. It was USED. stuff is gonna be wrong with it. kinda shocked me that you were shocked how much was wrong.

    This reminds me of looking at used Toyota Avalon’s. One private sale and one dealer. Both were presented as excellent condition. A dog had torn the interior apart in one and the other was also a disaster. I hate it when sellers misrepresent to people who travel some distance to see the vehicles. I wouldn’t care if he was mad. You’re the one who drove all the way there to find it was not as he represented it to be.

      kingdavidcoffee ...right? Me and my younger brother drove a box trailer from Central FL to Houston, TX a couple years ago, for him to pick up a 1970 Corvette that he had every intention that he’d buy and “restore.” Descriptions, photos and lots of details were sent before he agreed to make the long trip to get this thing and haul it back home. We got there after driving all night and after an hour of trying to find the clown’s address, we see in his backyard a parted-out shell of a ‘Vette, missing the t-tops, no interior at all but filled with slimey duck water with a duck still swimming around inside of it, missing the headlight doors and actuators, missing the wiper door and actuator, no engine, tranny, rear end, sitting partially crooked on blocks and 4 X 4’s. Even the gas filler door on the rear deck was missing...and he had no spare parts for anything! We found out that asshole sent us his old Polaroid photos of the car from 1986 - long before the destruction and deterioration had begun. My brother was PISSED. I threatened to call the cops right then and there if he didn’t give me $500 for wasting my time, gas and wear and tear on my truck and trailer. His wife came outside and she started crying and yelling at both of us and her old man, but I knew she was just as mad at him as we were! We showed her the Poloroids and wanted her to explain why he’d try to con us like that! She had no answer, but she slapped the back of his head twice... She went inside, got her checkbook, came back and promised to write us a check for $600 if we didn’t call the cops. No way were we going to accept a check, so we told her cash only. She pulled my brother aside and told him he was on Probation for Grand Larceny, and if he was arrested again, he’d never see daylight again. He stood firm and told her to go get $500 out of the ATM and we’d leave, no questions asked. It took her 5 minutes to get back and she paid us. But that skinny bastard crook got away with one... Call it a lesson learned. Photos can be doctored, or dated. Details can be considered “puffery.” People LIE all the time to get you to show up and buy something.

    That thing hadn't had a professional service in years, this scenario occurs Time an Time again, high end items require high end maintenance, a coach of that calibre (let lone the 1st owner being famous) should of had a big thick service/maintenance history to back it up!! That thing just about got proof Dale owned it!!!🤪👍 hey I'm loving the channel!! Big fan from LIVERPOOL UK!!!

    I am watching this after seeing the one you did end up buying on Andrew's channel, this one is just a few years newer but the interior finishes/cockpit etc. seem far newer. They must have done a dramatic design change in 1997 time frame.

    • Stapleton42
      Stapleton42

      It’s 1 year newer. They redid the cockpit in 97 that’s about it. Plus slides. The rest is about the same

      That's a pretty bold assumption! I'm younger than he is and I saw Dale many times. I even saw him wreck Terry Labonte and win at Bristol as well as countless other Bristol races. And this guy has probably been to hundreds more races than I ever went to.

    well you kind of knew going into this possible Adventure that it is a well used Vehicle considering who,owned it and used it but i don’t think. it overall was abused or seriously neglected i imagine Dale would had maintained it with a open Checkbook by using Professionals as it was also a business expense for a pretty successful business as well as it being his home for himself and his Wife

      @Stapleton42 I know you had high hopes and were disappointed when you got there and saw the condition but it's mostly on you, bro. You're the one that knew nothing about it and jumped out on the road in 30 minutes. I've done it. You win some, you lose some. I've just never driven 1200 miles to see something. It pains me enough to drive 2 hours and come back home.

    The previous owner should have taken the $600 thousand when it was offered to him, sure isn't even worth close to $20 thousand today if your lucky. Maybe Dale Jr would like to have it for his museum, it would take the kind of money he has to redo this old coach.

      He was never offered $600,000. This is a random camper in a long line of random campers. It's not the first or the last. There's no nostalgia for Dale Jr and no business angle to profit from it.

    Sitting that long air bags are linking and have to be replaced . I would want to get it lifted on a jack or over a pit and check under it and inspect the floor , pull off wheels replace wheel seals drums and linings . Its going to cost a lot to get it mechanically fit , depending on body work and paint . $72,000 more like $7200 , 23 years old and its worn out , Ive own semis and know the cost of repairing them . Those tires are junk , Detroit is a decent motor but youll have to get it checked , it has a ECM on it so you can plug into it . You can do what you want but im sure you already know its going to cost you thousands to get it up to par . I would hold off and keep shopping maybe for something a few years newer and a lot better shape . Thing was neglected , it was a nice coach once upon a time .

    Your story reminds me of a time I went to look at a Grand Prix. Ad said "I great shape. Runs good." It was winter time so snow was piled up around the vehicle. I pop the hood and the engine, transaxle, cradle are sitting on the ground. Lady said "Yeah. That happened the last time I pulled into the driveway. A friend who is a mechanic said it just needs some welding." As if anyone would buy a car which the entire drivetrain litteraly had fallen out of. The asking price was about what one in decent condition was worth based on KBB. AMAZING!

    I happened to see the Video Andrew posted then looked this one up to watch. You made a very wise decision. I commented on Andrew's video the it might take $20k - $30k but now that I see the paint I will double my WAD to $50k - $60k, but then I want EVERYTHING in excellent condition. I just don't understand people spending the amount of money they do on those high end coaches and then don't take care of them. Seeing where it was located my guess the guy could barely afford to put fuel in it. One thing to keep in mind when you're inspecting future coaches is that the Aquahot systems work in 3 different modes and you need to verify all 3 modes are working, and it may take you multiple days. Test the electrical mode first when it is cold. Let it cool down and then test the diesel mode, while it's cold also. If you drive the coach the engine has a loop built in that will heat your coach and water also. The reason why you need to do while the system has cooled down is if it's already hot the sensors won't trip the electrical elements on etc. You could get fooled into thinking it's working fine when it isn't. Repair work on Aquahot systems is very expensive. Doing your annual maintenance on them isn't bad but if they aren't maintained (should operate them monthly just like the generator) the go to crap.

He would leave like on a Tuesday or a Wednesday before the race . Once he drove the coach to the track , he'd clean it up. Buy the groceries for the driver and then he'd move to a hotel until the race was over. Then drive it home . Clean it up and store the coach. And start over . Take care.

    It’s cool but I wouldn’t buy it unless it was extreme cheap or in mint shape!

    That's classic motorhome has its flaws but was owned by NASCAR legend Dale Sr. I agree with those tires should been replace yes ago & then air ride leak but I'd still would offer seller $10grand

    My friend was in his Carl Edwards business partner and she did all his contracts so she was pretty much allowed to sign for him so he may not see signatures on contracts from Dale Earnhardt or whomever

    There was a same year out in Andrews neck of the woods on craigslist with only 80,000 miles. Looked in great condition and only $58,000. Be worth a look.

    wow that's ruff looking you would think whom ever had Fals own personal motor home they would have taken better care of it no matter the age of something I've seen things 30yrs old look brand new with original parts it's a shame

    nice year for a diesel. I was thinking old solenoids lack of diodes (LED too)..and sure enough spotted one up front. Other than that, if that body is square.. it did not have a bad life. Hope somebody buys it, dales or not.

      The frame was likely twisted. I found that in the notes of a service record from 2008

      Devonte Flowers I’d do it if i could afford to. It’s not the best use of my time or resources at the moment. Wish I could.

    Any subscribers on here from that area or who pass that way, who know if it did get sold soon after this or where did it end up? It would be interesting to see it now if it has gone through some repairs and restoration.

    The way I see it is it wasn’t meant to be sold to you. Everything you didn’t want to happen happened. That’s a sign from the man in black that it should be put away in a museum after being restored. Him getting mad and taking it out on you was ridiculous. He should donate it to Dale jr or the RCR museum. I mean it’s legit and would be cool to take trips in knowing what it’s seen but his price was ridiculous knowing just for tires and s total maintenance check up tour two legs in the water.

    I believe if someone had offered me 600 K it would have rolled them down the road. Especially seeing they were gonna put it in a museum
