Attention!

All owners of NUWA 5th wheel RV's that use the previous style (from those that are currently being used) hitch pin box.

These are easily identifiable as being made from a piece of 8"x8" square seamless steel tubing cut with a 45* angle at each end and with a piece of " steel plate welded to the upper section of each side for the mounting bolts. (The total width at the top is 8 ")

I have contacted Demco

http://glide-ride.com/

the manufacture of the Glide-Ride hitch that is used on the current models of the NUWA RV's. These hitches will not retrofit to the previous style of Young's Welding Hitches.

They said that they are keeping a list of HH owners that are interested in purchasing a Glide-Ride Hitch that would fit the previous models of RV's. If there is enough interest that they would "probably" make some.

If you are interested, contact Scott Johnson at 1-800-543-3626 or send them an email through their web site. It may not hurt to call HH II at 1-800-548-5342 (ask for Blair in engineering) and suggest that they start a list also. Sorry I don't know the phone # of HH and Snowbird. Maybe NUWA could advertise them as a retrofit for older models. Have your serial and model #'s ready.

BTW- if they do decide to make them for us, you can probably get a better price if you purchase it through your NUWA dealer.

Thanks

Richard Cox

Hi there!

After reading my original post about the Glide Ride hitch I saw that I forgot to add some information.

As far as I know NUWA has an agreement with Demco to be the exclusive supplier for the Glide Ride Hitch that is being installed as original equipment on various NUWA models. On some models it is standard and on some it is optional equipment.

Sorry for the confusion.
Richard Cox
