Plant tours

Does Forest River or other makers offer tours of their plants in Indiana?

Yes they do...we toured through the Rockwood plant last February when we picked our camper up. Our sales rep at RV Direct arranged it. The tour was very informative.

Forest River does for sure. I was at the Surveyor plant last Thursday and got the factory tour. It was an excellent experience. if you never had one, and in the area, give them a call and arrange a time for it. It is worth it !

YOU betcha!! By Golly! We had a great tour of where they make them there big motorhomes, shoot boy, they even make them little pull trailers, for them that don't want a gray big motorhome or any other color for that matter.
So go on out there and takes a look around.
All kidding aside, the tours are free and you learn a lot about how they are made......
