So a factory tour at this point given the distance we would have to travel (on my days off as I still work full time) would actually just be nice to do, but not decision changing. If I lived within 3 or so hours as you say you are, then I would definitely do it.
Congradulations on deciding on your decision. We had decided on the Columbus 320RS after spending many years and lots of hours looking over & under other models. The factory tour was the icing on the cake and re-affirmed our recent decision to go with the Columbus. My opinion is that 99% of the problems I have read on here are directly related to what kind of dealer you choose and the old saying about getting the "Service after the Sale" which means that finding the right dealer may be even more important than deciding on the brand & model of RV to purchase! The factory tour isn't necessary but fun and informative.

Being on the west coast is a little far for me to get to the factory, I would love to see where ours came from...

I will be flying to Chicago in October, I think I'll hop a train and go visit for the day...

That's one of the tours that we did last year, and likely will be again. If not, we'll get you together with someone for a private tour. We were able to that with several plants that aren't set up to accommodate big groups.

If you come to Middlebury and tour the Columbus plant, stop by and say "hello." My office is just across the street in the Coachmen HQ building.

Also, I just as soon have better roads for shipping the finished 5th wheel to us so we don't get all the salt & brine splashed up onto the chassis along with hitting all the pot-holes found on our Michigan highways right now!
Tell me about it. I looked at midway but we bought from Tradewinds outside of Flint because it was closer to home. Now I am trying to find a new place to get my service done because I am not happy with the service so far. It hit 60 here today and most of the snow is now gone!!! As soon as I get mine back from repair I am going to go camping!!!
