Capucine...I was disappointed with the pictures that uploaded because if you make them full screen you can really see the detail of what everyone's doing! There is one picture where they're flipping the floor over and attaching it. That's the station where all the holding tanks are installed and the floors attached. Its funny they hook and power-up the wiring and lights as it moves down the line...so they can see if a circuit doesn't work...in-line PDI (lol). I was surprised no got shocked, wire's were every where at one station and as they we plugged in...on the lights came !

Had to laugh at the above listed "Diamond Package" - because all the doors are supposed to be slam-latch eventually. During the tour I asked about one door of the camper being the old style along with the new slam-latch. The worker said there supply chain isnt reliable yet. So they had to put the old style on. I said that seems strange to put to different kinds of doors on...I wondered how they explain it at the dealers. There's the answer from above "Slam-latches on most doors". One would think they shouldn't start production without all the parts...not in the RV industry.

*** Note the plant manager told us, that as soon as front and rear caps become available for the WINDJAMMER line it will be offered. The goal is to offer it in all the Rockwood/Flagstaff lines and models. It will most likely stretch onto the 2013 line-ups

Good to know. Do they usually provide factory tours? I realize you were there for your warranty work, but some of the motorhome plants provide tours. Just wondering if this plant had a similar program.

PS. (edit) It would be fun to go there and watch my order being built

They will run based on model and 5th wheel or Travel Trailer. They try and keep each daily run the same model threw out the day. They start work at 530am everyday. however during the hot summer months they may start a 3am-4am to beat the hot summer sun. (no A/c in the factory).
The Wind&V lite factory was in (Millersburg) when we took our V back for repair. Doug & the same Amish people in your pictures were at (Millersberg) at that time. Youroo!!

Rebel702- They don't have tours of this plant per say, but you can if your in the area try calling the plant, they may or may not let you. As I said most plant tours are after the work hours are over, because most of the workers in all the RV plants are Amish background and don't like having there pictures taken. They're plants all over this area that have tours. Just down the same road (SR-13) is the Jayco plant(huge-5 times bigger than this one),Keystone, EvergreenRV, and many, many more. Hallmark cargo trailers-(several different cargo manufactures in the area).

YOUROO- The mailing address for this Division is Millersburg, so you were at the same factory. It just past the town limits for Goshen,IN (bigger city). We stayed in Goshen and Doug Fought refered to it being in Goshen, but your right it is in Millersburg. I think Doug said the repair facility,finished unit parking is on Goshen property but the entrance to the plant is on SR-13 which is Millersburg! Hope I didn't get everyone mixed up! Thanks YOUROO --- Dave K.
