We also have an '82 Newell 38' Classic Coach. Check out the history of the Newell!! LK Newell ordered a Streamline Motorhome, wanted it correct and wound up buying the company.
I am including a couple of pics of our Newell....yes it is Riveted Aluminum Construction!!!!!!!! Birds of a Feather!!!!!!!!

Our 1958 Traveler is going to be for State Parks etc. since the Bus doesn't fit everywhere.

This fellow has done basically a new construction on this old GM Coach. Looks fantastic. He threw away the aluminium for SS.
