I have not posted much though I have been on this forum for nearly a year, as it seems all the questions/problems I have encountered I have found a solution to on the forum. But I could not let this thread pass.
My wife and I "retired" last spring and we had talked for years about getting a RV and traveling/workamping. We spent months researching, looking, reading forums, going in and out of nearly every brand we could find within 500 miles of Houston, from Carriage, Excel, Teton, Keystone, KZ, etc..
We found a HH dealer in Buda with Marshall Rv. They handled the KZ line as well as NuWa. I had my mind set on a NuWa after months of the research, and mostly having to do with Mike being a part of this forum. I told my wife that anytime a CEO takes time from his schedule to keep tabs on the pulse of his customer base, something HAS to be right with this company. (Maybe Wall Street and Washington should take his lead). Well, we found an Escalade (I know, it's NOT a NuWa) that was just beautiful. Had all the goodies we wanted, the wood was gorgeous, the layout perfect, etc. etc. In fact, we even signed a contract on the KZ, put some money down and set a delivery date. But something just didn't feel right to me and my wife knew it.
I kept looking at web sites, reading, comparing and it was driving my wife crazy. She finally got me to tell her what was bugging me, I just didn't "feel" right. So we went back to Marshall, Mark had both the Escalade and a Champagne set up and hooked up side by side, and he told us to take as long as we wanted to make sure we had the unit we wanted. So back and forth and back and forth we went. After almost four hours we are, needless to say, totally satisfied with the Champagne we purchased. And a trip to Chanute for some service work and a tour of the factory confirmed our decision even more. If not for being in Ruidoso for a workamping job in about a month, we would have made it to Yellowstone.
The campground we are in right now close to Altus, OK, Quartz Mountain, had two other Champagnes and a DA here about a week ago. Surprisingly none of them had knowledge of this forum. I gave them one of our cards with this link and told them they really need to check it out. We, too, are extremely happy to see NuWa resume production. Mike and crew, keep up the good work.
