Factory pictures and or Video

Does anyone know if there are pictures and or video available of the Forest River Factories?

I think it would be neat with out actually traveling to Indiana, to see these trailers being made.

sorry the Amish don't like to be video taped!(I'm kidding). I live close to the factory and have been there several time (was there last week) and still have not taken a tour, I really would like to do one but usually I don't have the time. Let me know if anyone comes out and I will try to meet you there

Forest River trailers are built in other locations than Indiana. If you are closer to the west coast they have a factory in the Salem Oregon area. Our friends took a trip down and got a tour of the factory and watched the rigs being built. They were treated really well and were very impressed. After the tour they came home and bought a "yet to be built" Sierra 5er and will be trading in their smaller Sierra when it arrives from the factory.

unfortunately I don't have a video camera. other than that I would be happy to. if I remember, next time I go I will try to get some pictures. the plant I go to is where they make the V-lites, windjammers, etc.

Speaking of factory tours, I wanted to mention that some of you in the area might want to consider the BMW plant tour near Spartanburg, SC. Right off I-85. I did it with a camping friend last week, and it was a great tour. Instead of looking at the action through glass, as in some plant tours, you get right out on the plant floor in safe areas. They also have a really cool museum there. The museum, itself, is worth the stop. It's free. The guided tour is $7.
