There's usually a bucket at the service center for tips. Leave what you think is appropriate.

You don't tip them directly. There will be an announcement at a dinner closer to the end of the rally & they usually have a bucket to put money in. I believe the money is divided up between all the workers. Just from our experience the workers seem to enjoy being there. They get free lunches, snacks & get out of the production line & meet their customers. We are all very appreciative to have them fix our campers and I think they pick up on that.

btw...even if you're not having work done, it is something to see the FR army of service techs running around the fairgrounds in their golf carts hauling a mountain of replacement parts and proudly displaying their brand names.

Last year it was said that the tip bucket money funded a pizza & beer party for the service crews.

Cool! Thanks for the replies. I think a full tip bucket will be a good thing!

Steve B. from Coachmen laminated TT customer service just called me about my service request and I asked him about a factory tour. He was not aware one was not scheduled so he said he would check on it an let me know if we will be able to get one.

All depends. Are you asking about physically leaving the fairgrounds, or emotionally leaving behind all the new friends you'll make. The first is easy, the second, not so much.
