2008 ARCHIVES


If you have spent much time in campgrounds you have undoubtedly heard about a company that does not spell its name right but builds the best fifth wheel trailer in the market! Yes that would be us at NuWa! (Pronounced “new-way”) You will have also met some of our Champagne owners and they tell the story better than we can regarding the exceptional reliability, livability and quality that is represented in our “top of the line” fifth wheel. Not only is this fifth wheel the ultimate in HitchHiker design, the Champagne is the bench mark in the Industry that other high lines compare to. A truly residential appearance is immediately noticed in the elegant decors, home-style furniture, solid surface countertops, and superior handcrafted Ash cabinetry or optional “Honey Cherry” cabinets and furniture. Attention to detail is seen throughout in an effort to provide the discriminating customer the best value available in a “full-timer” trailer. To create even greater value, the 2008 Champagne will be offered with more standard features that are most commonly requested by customers. The option list will allow the dealer and buyer to build the unit exactly the way your needs and wants dictate. A list of standard equipment and optional equipment is detailed in the “Features” section. The Champagne is not inexpensive and not light weight, as no true high-line fifth wheel is. What the Champagne represents is an effort to create balance of the features you wanted and the price and weight you will accept. HitchHikers are heavier than some for the right reasons and certainly lighter than some for the right reasons and we continue to evaluate methodologies, technology and components to eliminate unnecessary weight. The operative word is “unnecessary” and Nuwa will not build a product just for the sake of marketing that does not have the structural integrity worthy of the exceptional reputation we have in the marketplace. We also understand our customer better than anyone else in the industry and you tell us that reliability, quality and livability are most important! Those attributes can not be had with the light weight, lower cost units who want you to believe they compare to the HitchHiker. Our 35 years of experience tells us it simply can’t happen! How many of you have heard the phrase “you get what you pay for”? Well, to paraphrase John Ruskin's Common Law of Business (1819 - 1900) consider the following: When you buy for price these days, you can never be sure. It is certainly unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money….that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business prohibits paying a little and getting a lot…it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest price, it is well to add something for the risk you run…and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better! Study the floor plans, workmanship and detail design of the Champagne to understand why it ranks as the premium fifth wheel that all others compare to! We set the bar high and our customers appreciate that!
