Here’s A Neat Idea….

We’ve having a wonderful time at the RVIA California Show in Pomona. Meeting in person folks who have reserved a Bowlus Road Chief has been an absolute treat! We are also loving meeting new friends who are now Road Chief fans. Really this week couldn’t be more fun so when we meet Jim Vernes we just had to share what he’s up to.

We’re often “pitched” lots of ideas and as you can imagine we get all excited when we find a great one. We’ll today we were introduced to RV Golf Club and we wish them plenty of success. A few of us at BRC love nothing better than a round of golf and we can’t think of anything better than RV Golf Club. For just $49 annually you can stay free at nearly 350 (and growing) golf courses here and in Canada for free. Cool right? And there are all sorts of amenities and discounts on a round. So instead of a late night at a rest stop or Walmart, now you can spend the night at a Golf Course. Hmm.. can’t wait for someone to call for a special golf edition Bowlus Road Chief. You can find a link to Golf RVClub at Let us know what you’re favorite course is and maybe we can all meet up for dinner or a round.

California RV Show – Pomana, CA

“Welcome to the Club”

Today we became an official member of the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. One of the benefits of purchasing a trailer from an  RVIA member is the organization maintains an inspection program to monitor compliance of the plumbing, heating, fire and life safety, and the electrical systems of the RVs manufactured by its members to ensure conformance to the ANSI/NFPA 1192 standard for RVs. This program helps manufactures like ourselves and benefits purchasers as well.  There is a number of other benefits to a company like ours being a member and we’re pleased to be a part of it.

To celebrate our membership we’ll be at RVIA’s California RV Show – from Friday October 11 to 20th.  This is the 61st year for this show and it is located at the LA Fairplex in Pomona, CA.  Show hours are Sunday to Thursday from 10 am to 6 and Friday and Saturday 10am to 7 pm.  We’ll be hosting a special event all day on October 12th for friends of the Road Chief so make sure you’re signed up for the Bowlus Road Chief Newsletter at to get your invitation or drop us an email.  We look forward to meeting friends and fans of the Bowlus Road Chief.


The Road Chief Jockey Wheel

The lowly jockey wheel never rated a first look let alone even a second glance when anyone cruised down the highway towing their favorite toy.  However, that will all change when you notice all the rubberneckers  acknowledging the “beauty of a jockey wheel” on your new Bowlus Road Chief.

Yes, its true, our design team at Bowlus Road Chief are plain giddy  about the AL-KO jockey wheel we ship in from Europe. Its got a range of innovate features that makes your life a breeze whether you’re  looking to tuck into a perfect spot by the lake or in a corner of your garage.

It’s smooth suspension handling means its skips over uneven concrete, gravel or ground cover.  A scale shows the hitch weight so no more guessing like some midway carny  and leveling your Road Chief is a snap (actually just a couple turns). The sturdy wheel swings up and easily stores securely. Designed and manufactured in Germany it is exactly what you expect – precision and strength with non-nonsense styling that makes it a perfect fit with the iconic Road Chief.

Its performance makes even our lightest featherweights at Bowlus Road Chief (sorry we don’t release personal weights) believe we’re going to the gym more than we think as we single handily move a Road Chief in and around the shop. Oh, and its Road Chief red handle is a perfect match too. There is a special confidence (not to mention lack of stress) when  you know you can move around your Bowlus Road Chief all by yourself.

Springing into Autumn.

Seems we couldn’t agree more with Truman Capote when he wrote, “Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns the season of beginnings, spring”. So with that thought in mind, we need first  to completely apologize as the Road Chief blog just plain ran away from us this summer.    We’re feeling that this autumn will be our new beginnings at the blog.

We’ve got loads of fabulous news that we are can’t wait to share. Everything from updates on the Road Chief that makes even the featherweights among us pull it with just one finger (ok a few muscles are also involved) to some exciting details on the events we will be holding across the country so everyone will have a chance to see the latest production Bowlus Road Chief.

So let us get cracking but before we start we want to send a big thank you everyone for the emails, calls and reservations.  They’ve been pure honey to the Bowlus Road Chief busy bees motivating us to make the world’s most aerodynamic, most lightweight, most luxurious travel trailer even better.
