Kansas RV Travel Destinations

Chanute, Kansas is where we found our full-time rolling home.  NuWa, the makers of the Hitchhiker brand of fifth wheel trailers, is headquartered there, and we had lots of fun taking factory tours (yup, multiple ones!) and exploring the town on two different visits in the spring of 2008 (when we bought the trailer) and again in 2009 (when we returned for minor warranty repairs).

Unfortunately, NuWa (pronounced “New Way”) stopped manufacturing fifth wheels in 2013, however they kept their service center open. So, in 2015, needing lots of plumbing related repairs on our now eight-year-old trailer, we returned to Chanute once again. It was a 3-day repair job and we had to stay in a motel, so it was a little chaotic!
