CHANUTE, Kansas -- In a posting on the NuWa owners forum last weekend, NuWa owner Mike Mitchell hinted the company may be back in business soon, but under a different business model.
"NuWa is developing a new business model and will be back in production in June. There, you heard it from the "horse's mouth".
"Do me several favors, while I continue to put this plan into action. First of all let the world know when you have the opportunity. There are a lot of folks out there who had given up on buying a Hitchhiker, that I have no way of reaching. They need to hear they now have the choice of a HitchHiker. And continue to help the NuWa forum grow, as I hope to use it as a major communication tool for prospective HitchHiker buyers as well as owners. People who visit your forum slowly realize just how different NuWa's relationship with customers is. And it's a powerful marketing tool that I can not duplicate using any other media.
"And two, if you were thinking about buying a unit from a dealer's lot or from the factory's inventory, don't hesitate to do so. These units are bargains, because NuWa and dealers are still discounting them as if we were going out of business. That won't be the case, when 2010 models are available. 2010 models will be nearly identical to 2009 models. No changes planned. Not all models will be available. 2007/2008 models are significantly less than 2009 or 2010 models, because they were priced/built before the major inflation that happened during 2008 calendar year. Once 2010 units are priced the reality of the value of 2007/2008/2009 models will be recognized. That said, the first 2010 models are not expected to increase in price over 2009 models.
"And thirdly, be patient. I am working to develop a business plan that will be respectful and beneficial to all parties; i.e. NuWa, dealer/partners and our mutual customers. I will announce and explain this concept at a later time."
