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).

Thanks for sharing the pics. Glad to hear you are happy with the re-re-repair! Did you get to see actual Windjammers in production?

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!

Great pictures! Thanks so much for sharing.
Look's a little different than what you see in the brochures.

I'm glad to hear they got you fixed up right this time.
