Tour of Coachmen Chaparral Plant

Today we had the opportunity to visit and tour the Coachman assembly plant in Middlebury Indiana. It was a very good tour with really good explanations of the processes of the build and the things they do to make a better product. Also, we want to give a big thank you to Alex for his time and knowledge of the Coachman Chaparal products.

We toured the trailer plant quite a few years ago, then the motorhome plant 2 years ago. Very informative, very interesting. Hoping to take a tour of the trailer plant during the rally this coming summer.

I was at the plant today picking up my trailer. I asked about taking a tour, but they didn't have a time until 3pm and I needed to be in Ft Wayne around 4. Maybe next time.

Bob and his team in Service did a great job fixing my trailer.

We just bought a 336 TSIK Chaparral February 20th. Traded in our Flagstaff 8528RKWS 5th wheel. Last summer we took a tour of the Pursuit and the Mirada factory. Very impress with the tour that was giving by the manager and his warranty person. We have been to every International Rally in Goshen for the passed 5 years and have enjoyed all of them. We hope to tour the Coachman Chaparral factory this June when Coachman has there 50th year reunion in Goshen. Hope to see you there. Thanks Ted
