I see where I have my "mind picture" all wrong.
When I picture an assembly line I picture the old Ford assembly line with the car body moving down a belt and a worker putting on two lug nuts on every car.
I am thinking from your comments that the frames do not move, but the worker goes from camper to camper putting lug nuts on all campers on the floor, one after the other.
The "lug nut guy" gets pretty good at putting on lug nuts. I know it is a simplistic example, and I am sure the cabinet carpenters are very good at what they do. I just can't picture every cabinet being custom built at each camper. Seems a very inefficient way of making a camper.
I most likely need to plan a camping trip out that way to spend some time at the plant. <sigh>
