NuWa and Peterson Industries have been friendly toward one another for some time. The CEO of NuWa, Mike Mitchell, has been an honorable and trustworthy fifth-wheel manufacturer for decades. The fact that Mike seems to have worked out a manufacturing deal with Excel is a great thing. You will get the best of both worlds: Excel manufacturing capability with the NuWa HitchHiker brand loyalty of many, many fulltimers. I sure hope this joint venture gains some traction, and they begin sellling multiple floorplans and levels of sophistication.
If they are able to compete with the other high-end fivers, such as the Excel Limited series and the Mobile Suites line, I will definitely consider a HitchHiker branded fifth wheel. Here's to a successful partnership!
