Plant Visit Today !!
I had the opportunity today to get a first hand look at the building of the Columbus fifth wheels. I was greeted by a very friendly young man and we talked a little while another went and got the rep, Jack. He gave me a little history on the birth or thoughts on building a unit like these that started a couple years ago. I got to see the various stages that each unit goes through from bringing the frame into the building to the final inspections before they are released to the dealer. I think I expected the plant to be bigger, but since they only build Columbus's there, I thought everything was well laid out. I went from station to station, and was neat to see how a piece of metal frame evolves into our home away from home. My 365 RL was going into production later today, and should be ready for my dealer to pick up next week. I highly recommend that if you have the time to take a tour like this you should. They do read these forums and listen to our concerns which I was very impressed with.Thanks again Jack for showing me around and answering my questions. Hope to see you at the Tampa show in January.
