In reality what we want is as many comforts as we can get in the length we think we can tow

I read the below post on the NuWa Owners Forum, and asked Dione and Dave if I could share their comments on our website.   Many customers tell us that buying longer is often a wiser investment, and towing longer trailers really consumes very little additional fuel.  Once all the facts are known, the HitchHiker begins to rapidly move up people's short list of units to consider for purchase.

Re: Let's discuss shorter DA models

As full-timers, our first 5th wheel was purchased because it was “short” (29’) and mid-profile.  We had always preferred State and National Parks for our camping experiences and felt that this kind of unit would be able to fit in most of our favorite parks.  The reality is, as Rick and Cheryl said, we find ourselves staying near some parks rather than in them because even this shorter 5th wheel didn’t easily fit in many of the parks.   Also we are now living, not vacationing, so amenities are more important. 

As said by several others, NuWa is probably not an entry-level purchase for most buyers.  I think many of us thought we wanted a shorter unit, when in reality what we want is as many comforts as we can get in the length we think we can tow and the gross weight limits of our tow vehicles.  We think you really hit the mark for value for full-timers and we would definitely purchase another NuWa when the time comes and it would certainly be larger, not smaller.  The extra length of our DA over our SOB is irrelevant when it comes to towing or parking ease.  The additional weight and height of our DA impacts our fuel economy by less than 5% over the smaller, lower and lighter SOB. 

Thanks for opening this discussion.  As we talked about these issues today we again came to the conclusion that our DA is perfect for us.
