The Georgetown motorhomes and the Cardinal 5th wheels are made in the same plant around Goshin In. The tours are done in the afternoon after the workers have left for the day. There are two assembly lines , one for the Cardinals and the other for the Georgetowns. When completed, they are sent to another plant for the exterior painting. Since we were interested in the Georgetowns, they followed this sequence of construction: Frame came in with lower storage frames welded to the floor frame. Then came the floor makeup, then the two side walls were framed using steel supports were raised and secured to the floor. All interior work was done at this point. Then the roof was lowered to the coach and secured to the side walls. The front and back caps were finally added to complete the coach. The sides were constructed at another plant and brought in complete. The roof was manufactured adjacent to the assembly lines. The floor frame had all of the Hydralic arms and hoses for the slides installed before the wooden floor was lowered onto the steel frame. We were impressed with the construction. We had toured other manufacture plants in the area, Jaco, Keystone and Newmar, and we thought the construction of the Forest River products was a little better.
The tours normally run after the workers have left (Amish) and gone back to their farms in the afternoons. They said it was for safety. We forgot our camera on this trip. But Keystone let us take it inside their plant and I'm sure Forest River would do the same.
