All looks like a real good time! I wanted to go but kiddies started school this week. I would especially enjoy the vendor stuff. After having the lacrosse for 1 year and getting the new diesel I am really interested in looking at the newest 5er for a potential upgrade, so seeing the newest models would be worth the trip, all under one roof. Have a great week!

Pats on the back to Forest River folks

For anyone and everyone out there.....Let it be known that those of us here at FROG RALLY Goshen have been swamped with an amazing group of folks from all of the Forest River divisions.....techs and supervisors.....helping us get any and all RV issues resolved at an amazing low cost.....of NOTHING.

We had issues with the electrical side of our hot water heater, a broken window blind, the top of our kitchen table has a split in it, PLUS the damage done from the almost blown out tire that happened on the way here.

EVERYTHING was fixed by the folks here at the campground.....FOR FREE.....PARTS AND LABOR. The element in the hot water heater was replaced, the window blind was repaired. and a new kitchen table has been ordered for us.....PLUS the trim around the tires was replaced, the hole above the tires was properly fixed with new insulation installed, and the bracket holding the trim piece was replaced.

There have been some folks that had to take the rigs to the factorys for more extensive repairs, and some of the techs at the campground found issues with rigs that the owners did not know about.....and they were fixed also. I also saw a windshield being replaced, and a new reefer being installed, new carpet being carried into a unit, plus many other stories being told of all of the good work being done.

With the rain yesterday and last night I thought if anyone had any leaks.....last night would be the time to find them......and I know of at least 1 rig that is going to the factory on Thursday to be repaired.

Thanks again to all of the techs, supervisors, and EVERYONE involved all the way up to and including Pete Liegl for making all of this happen.

FROM ALL 223 RIGS HERE AT GOSHEN.....SALUTE.

Sounds as though this should be the new fall "hangout"

It's good to hear that FR wants to be involved with the customer and resolve issues. This kind of feedback and stories are a plus for me in deciding where to purchase a new 5er.

Sunshine! After a night of heavy rain, Tuesday dawned bright and mostly clear. FROGs were up and around early, anxious to hop to the breakfast buffet even following the remarkable dinner the evening before. And FROGs can eat!

You don’t want to be caught between these hungry critters and a buffet table. Scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, peach French toast with pecans; sausage gravy and biscuits, bacon, and fried potatoes got everyone ready for a day of adventure.

Seminars started soon after, with the first of many well-attended sessions. Before long, tour buses were lining up in front of the Community Center for a trip to several Forest River plants throughout the area.

Morning trips took attendees to the Flagstaff / Rockwood plant in Millersburg; to the Cedar Creek and Cherokee plants in Topeka; and to the Pre-Delivery Inspection center and the Sierra / Sandpiper plant in Goshen. Everyone on the tours had a chance to see not only craftsmanship and quality built into Forest River products, but also a hint of the enormous economic impact that Forest River has on many of the small communities in the area.

Follow-up trips in the afternoon took members to see the “big boys” – Berkshire and Charleston diesel pushers; Sportscoach diesel and Columbus fifth wheel; and a return to PDI and Sierra / Sandpiper, with r-Pod thrown in for good measure.

Throughout the day, FROGs also had a chance to view more of the new Forest River offerings on display, including diesel and gas Class A’s, Class C motorhomes, fifth wheels, toy haulers, travel trailers, pontoon boats, and utility trailers. Traffic was heavy and business was good for many of the vendors as members visited that area again.

But it was something else that the FROGs saw throughout the day that left many so amazed. The previous evening, Pete Liegl has spoken of commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction – both his personal commitment and that of the company. Today, those words were translated into action. Pete had authorized a small army of service technicians to handle service issues for all comers – mechanical issues, body work, appliances, electrical problems, and more – not only on the spot, but all at no charge. Attendees were almost speechless at tales of work done at no charge, sometimes on issues that the owners didn’t even know that they had.

Stories of amazing commitment, excellent work, and true dedication were repeated everywhere people gathered. And all free. Not only did Forest River technicians perform work, but techs from suppliers of components, such as appliances, glass, jacks, and more were called in to support the corporate effort. Many said that they had never seen, or even heard of, a company standing behind its products in such amazing fashion.

And then, predictably, it was time to eat. These folks can eat. Nelson’s Bar-B-Q provided their famous pit chicken, ham, green bean casserole, “pit-tatoes” decadent brownies, and drinks to satisfy the heartiest of appetites.

Throughout dinner we were treated to a background show of photos of the first – yes, I said it – first FROG International Rally in Branson. I guess a few Canadians in the mix, and a couple from Portugal make it qualify. Following some announcements, we invited Bob Schorfeide, who hails from Oklahoma but is otherwise OK, to tell us a little bit about the history of that event.

And of course, with “Big Bob” at the podium, something was bound to happen. And it did.

That’s when the joint was “busted.” As part of the evening’s entertainment, a Barney Fife character eased into the room, checking things out and questioning Bob about the parking situation and the golf carts that didn’t have a license or permits and would have to be impounded. Doubled over in laughter, “Big Bob” gamely continued his presentation as Officer Fife checked out the room for suspicious characters, malcontents, and other possible evildoers. He even warned us about a possible suspect who had pursued him clear from Kokomo, sometimes at speeds exceeding 53 miles per hour.

Officer Fife went out to find a location to “surveille” the situation, soon reappearing in the person of Rik Roberts, a comedian who proceeded to leave the audience in stitches with his hilarious observations as well as his musical comedy.

Following the performance everyone retired to the campground to rehash the day or simply to settle in and anticipate the day ahead.

More to come……

What a great day today. Forest River kept us busy from 930 am till almost 530 pm today on the Rolling on the river tour. Our guide and driver were awesome as was the River boat owner/captian and we got a great tour of the Amish country side as well. Tomorrow the FR techs are coming to fix up our few issues as well.

Meeting all the FRF members here as well as everything Forest River has and is doing for us all makes me pround to be a FROG member and FRF member as well.

Have a great nite all you FROGs here in Indiana

Many of us sure are missing a great event! I’m hoping that next year's rally will be a few weeks earlier so I can attend. With school starting here the first week of August there's no way I will be able to go since I return to school/work around the 3rd week in July.

You know there is a plant here in CA in Rialto that might work…. (Hint hint!)
