Factory Visit to see 30FW build

DW and I are traveling to the Dynamax factory in hopes of watching some of the build on our 30FW. Have others done this and what sort of freedom are you allowed to be near your new coach? Also after a couple of months on this forum, am looking forward to meeting Brian Clemens if he has the time to put up with me.

you should be able to walk right up and into it if its on the line. The cool part is not one coach though, but seeing 10 (or so?) coaches at various stages of build progress. Its an awesome way to see how they all go together. Highly recommend the trip even if yours isnt on line!

our plan was to go up this past winter to see our 2nd unit being built. Now we are sitting in it and never made it up there. Oh well, I wish we would have.

We were there this week and Joe Eash walked us through the entire build process. Impressive!! We bought a 5 30FW and we were able to view several in various stages of the build.
And everyone there was very helpful and kind to answer questions. Great group of people and a well organized build process. We now know why the paint process takes so long. The masking alone is so involved!
The tour is well worth the time.
Thanks to all the Dynamax family for taking the time to provide an inside view!!
Received our unit this week and are headed to the rally!!

My wife and I were also treated to a tour of the factory the last Friday in April. It was a Friday afternoon and the number of employees was very small. We're didn't get to see many of the workers at work but it allowed Joe Eash to do a great job showing and explaining what was happening along the production line. I've been on some tours that were noisy, busy and rushed. What impressed me the most was how much of the work is hand crafted. The paint work and detail is second to none. It was helpful to see the coach at different stages and to understand how everything goes together. I feel I know a lot more about my Isata 5 30 FW than if I didn't take the tour!
