I'm a Mennonite and I love having my picture taken.
And I also love electricity, diesel trucks and living in the 21 century.

I think they bail by noon because they also have a farm to operate and there are only so many hours of daylight.

Thanks for sharing the tour pics. I did that at the Keystone Factory in 2013, they slap these things together very quickly. Your new unit looks great!

Did you see what the floors are made with?
How about the 7way trailer wires. Did you see how they get them from the front to the back?
I, for the life of me, cannot see them coming out of the front overhang anywhere.
The floors were made with tongue and groove plywood decking. I was disappointed to see that the laminate flooring is NOT all one piece.

All the wiring was run under the frame, for the most part. Very few penetrations through the floor.

It was very hard to see anything in detail. We just were too far from the assembly line and since no one was actually performing work, it was hard to say how things were actually put together.

I hear what you are saying. But, I would have gladly given up the right to take photos to actually see how things were assembled. The whole reason I went on the tour in the first place. If I wanted to see finished product, I could have surfed the internet.

Thanks magnumsoldier. Hagrid (TV) and Madame Maxine (TT) make for a LONG rig but they play well together.

I was going to do a walk through video but it is still raining cats and dogs here. Maybe tomorrow.

Nice pics of the plant. I guess they are all fivers being built there. Did you get to see any TT`s being built or just tour the one plant?

They cycle the different types of RV through the plant we were in so it is just the luck of the draw (reservation date). The Class A's and C,s are in a different plant\building and tours of them are separate. I did not tour the latter.

You may want to call now and verify that they will even be giving them. The day we were there the people conducting them said that ours was the last one for a while.
I would want to avoid being disappointed.

PS: Don't miss the RV Museum.

Maybe they don't offer tours during model year changeover? Don't know how much "retooling" they have to do from one year to the next but that would make sense to me.

Fairenatic, thanks for sharing. Somehow I haven't seen this thread before today. I would like to visit and even more I'd love to pick my trailer up from the factory. How did you arrange that and I guess they have someone to PDI it with you?

Edit: Or did you mean you picked up from a dealer near the factory...? I'm thinking that is what you meant. My mistake.
