To answer the the question, yes if they moved the assembly plant to S. Texas and I am the QA manger. The employees would not like me very much because I am a very picky person.

Working the way they do will never produce a quality product, trying to get the job done a warp speed is not in my style of working.

Answer....NO. I can't run that fast anymore and I have too much pride in my work to allow what is being built this way. But I don't have stockholders either.

Nothing to complain about

If it wasn't for Forest River we would not have anything to complain about.
We would not even have this forum

Upgraded axles and tires and possibly brakes. Easy at assembly.

Heater and A/C upgrades.

Could clean up your camper from sawdust and organize wire. Install EMS. Mount TVs the way you want. Drawers or shelves where you need them. Catch stripped screws and things. Not to mention all the more understanding you would have. Understand their assembly goes on but you could have access to it before and after work hours or breaks.

Not to mention all the upgrades that are coming or available you never even know existed.

If they did that you would put them out of business quick, that trailer that took 3 days to build without you, now takes two weeks to build and will go up $50000 in price.........
