Chunate Kansas

Well here we are in Chanute Kansas getting a repair on our home. This is where the NU-WA factory is located they build Hitchhiker 5th wheels. We have broken weld that needs repaired and they have to de-skin a area on the left side just forward of the bedroom slide and the repair and curring for the fiberglass takes 3 days so Kathy and I hanging out in a motel room for two nights. This is a nice little town and we always enjoy being here. There is a city park that has about 15 RV hook-ups with water and elect the great deal is the first two nights are free and then only ten dollars a night. We will tour the factory again probably Thursday. they have fallen on hard times at NU-WA but have down sized and are holding their own and build a great product with outstanding customer service.I've heard that Dorthy lived around here and that Toto became road kill but don't quote me on that. we will probably leave here Friday and go back to Paragould for a week.Kathy needs to do a few things around there, anyway until next blog safe travels to all.

We did the factory tour last October when we were in Coffeyville, KS working for amazon.com. Nu Wa sure does build a good rig and it was our first choice when we were looking for a new to us rig, but then we found our Heartland and love it now...also very well built.
