Do you get a percentage of the pie and ice cream proceeds up there or something?
I drive right by there on I-90 every year around July. I'll keep this in mind. Meanwhile I think I'll take only ONE of my 800lb bikes this next trip, and no water.
Nope, I wish! Although the pie and ice cream were great at Goshen this year. Actually, when I find a company that I like and treats me well, I don't mind endorsing them.
We're on our third FR (kept trading up) and went to Goshen for the first time this summer. I was a little hesitant to go as I'm not a "joiner" and like to set my own schedule. However, my wife, who is much smarter than me, said let's give it a try and we can leave if we don't like it.
It was one of the best weeks we ever spent camping. The folks with us in the XLR ghetto were terrific and fun and we had a nice assortment of bikes. Everyone got along and we're still in touch.
BulletBob was around daily, hung out with the crew and even set up an ad hoc plant tour. I told him we didn't really have any service issues with our 2014 27HFS but he said to fill out the form anyway in case there were any recalls. That would save us s dealer trip.
I did remember that I had a slow leak on one of the tires and wondered if it might be the rim. They came and took the tire, found a screw way down in it, fixed it and put it back on.
Bob came in the trailer to chat and noticed that I took out my dinette and put two recliners there. He also noticed the trim around where the dinette had been was incomplete and said he would have that fixed. I objected because that was not FR's doing. They fixed it anyway.
Then my wife noted that the cabinet doors opened up with no support and she had to wedge something in to keep them open. Bob said they could put the hinges on the side if we wished, but needed to know that they might wear a bit faster. When my wife asked how much, Bob said no charge.
The last morning we were having coffee and there was a horrible noise on the side of the trailer. I opened the curtain and two service guys were replacing the electrical port. There had been a recall.
There was no charge for any repairs to any unit regardless of age. Amazing.
The entire event was first rate and that's why I'm a fan. They make 120000 units a year and there will be issues. But I have found FR to be a great company and endorse them highly.
