Actually, that link is talking about one of the two plants in Millersburg - a few miles SE of Elkhart. FR also has operations in Goshen.

There are 2 plants in Millersburg. One builds bumper pulls - Rockwood, Flagstaff, and Shamrock. The other builds 5th wheels, and may also build other Rockwood/Flagstaff bumper pulls.

We spent a night in Elkhart on a trip this summer and drove by the Roo factory. It was Sat, so no chance for a tour. DW was crushed about that. Below are a couple pictures. Didn't stop at the other Millersburg plant, there were a lot 5th wheels out in front.

We toured the plants in Millersburg this fall. They were building Flagstaff/Rockwood fifth wheels at one plant and hybrid/pop ups in the other plant. The third building does the floors, walls and roofs as well as houses the repair facility.
