Rockwood/Flagstaff Factory,Goshen IN.

Here are some pictures at the factory . We were there picking up our Windjammer that was being repaired for the second time,from the crack in the side-wall original reason for being repaired(design problem). They did a fantastic job this time and we were impressed with everyone at the factory. They make 20-22 units a day with a record of 33 units a day set in 2010. 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).

a few more..one they're putting the roof on! I had to be careful the Amish don't like there pictures taken. We were shown the other side of the factory but we couldn't take pictures because the Amish working there didnt want us to take any pictures....thats why most factory tours are taken during after hours. ( it was where they make the cabinets etc.)

We didn't see any Windjammers being made, but the process is the same, the day before they were making 5th wheels on the same line. That why at the end of the pictures you'll see 5th wheels that didn't get finished from the day befores production.

Didn't remember taking so many pictures! No wonder the workers were running away when we got closer to the stations!

We also had a tour of the repair facility which is about 200 yards from the main production building where the pictures were taken. We weren't allowed to take pictures only because the workers didn't want us too. They were all very nice and explained what they were doing in detail, they just don't like there pictures taken. All and all We took up a whole day with Doug Fought the Warranty manager at Rockwood/Flagstaff. It was very nice of him to take the time out of his busy schedule to completely go over our camper repair, making sure it was done to our standards and there's. Then to spend the rest of the day touring the factory and taking us through allot of there 2012 units! Here's some more pictures of the new "Diamond Package" on a 5th Wheel- Thermopane-frame-less windows, Slam-latch baggage doors,LED lights inside and out.There's more to the package but I forgot....getting old !!
