We actually did order our 5th wheel from FR (Elkhart plant), but through a FR rep here in town. It was three years ago, but we had filled out one of those 'Build Your Own" forms on the FR website and submitted it. We got a response from FR that same day and was told if we wanted to purchase this particular model, visit their FR rep...the rest is history. We did make changes to the floor plan through the FR rep. put down 10% to create a work order for the build. Five weeks later it was delivered to the FR rep (our choice to have this done), it was cleaned and everything was tested out before we did the walk-thru.
Doeas FR still do this, I don't know, but it was a good experience for us and we got what we wanted.
