We spent nearly five weeks and 5,200 miles on the road with our new Road Chief
We wanted to write and let you know what a wonderful summer of excursions it’s been. We spent nearly five weeks and 5,200 miles on the road with our new Road Chief and loved every minute. We have been to see family and friends; we returned to places we’ve not been since childhood; and we spent time in new places we can’t wait to get back to next spring.
For two people who swore they’d never buy a camper, we had a blast traveling the U.S. and can’t wait for more. What turned us around and into travel trailers is the uniqueness of the Bowlus Road Chief. Its design was unlike anything we’d seen before, the quality is incredible, and while the price tag seemed high at first, we realized that the weight of any other trailer we might have bought would have required us to buy a new car, too. We simply love that we can tow the Road Chief with our Jeep Unlimited.
The one thing about owning a Bowlus is whether you expect it or not, you quickly become Bowlus Ambassadors. Everywhere we’ve gone so far – Nevada, Utah, Colorado, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and New Mexico – we run into admirers who are full of wonderment and questions. We have our Bowlus story down to about two minutes now and have been the recipients of more thumbs-ups on the road than we can count. More people than we imagined actually know the history of Hawley Bowlus and his Road Chief and simply ask, “Is it an old refurb or a new one?” So far, we have found only those who love it. As do we. So, as fall and then winter descend on Colorado, we are happy to report that our Road Chief is tucked away in her indoor storage unit all plugged into a newly installed power outlet. We’ll be spending the next months making our travel plans for April when the snow clears from the mountain passes and we’re once again on the road.
We are not only hooked, we might be slightly addicted to our trailer and the adventures it allows us to have. We are grateful that you brought back this old classic, and did so bigger and better than Hawley Bowlus probably ever imagined.
