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 !!

Thanks for sharing those pics. I did not know that the Amish also were working at that factory - believing it was a Jayco exclusive. But then that is their neighborhood after all.

My wife and I really love that that Diamond package , wow.

BigRed, thanks so much for such great pictures!!! Quite impressive. Like the Diamond Pkg color but got to wonder about its durability.

Big Red: this is the best tread I have seen so far on this forum. I dowloaded all of your pictures to study them each one at a time. It is really something. The only pictures I had was from google earth on the location where they were. Thanks so much it is a " tour de force"

I guess that didn't want you to identify the guy who frigged up your wiring, or forgot to drill the hole for the black water tank.

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
