Rockwood Factory Tour (2109S)

Has anyone visited the factory that doesn't need repairs? Is it worth a stop & can you camp overnight? I'll be in that area on the 26th & am thinking about calling them to see.

It is not Goshen, but it is close.

Have been to the factory for both situations. A factory tour is very interesting and you get to see the internals of the trailers. To my knowledge you can not camp at the factory.

I am camped there (Shipshewana RV Park) tonight with the Flea Market right behind the TT. Picked up some salsa from Yoder's Meat & Cheese Co. with no junk added in for flavor etc..

The factory tour requires a phone call to schedule & they are only in the mornings. We started at noon (an exception) & lasted about 1Ĺ hours. You have to be careful as the employees on the assembly line run, yes run, The quality of the employees & their work is impressive. Most are Amish. I found out that they pressure test each TT as the last step before it goes out for pickup & delivery to the dealers. I think they are doing a 110 units per day & we saw 2 assembly lines. We took no pictures, you might get run over if you stand still too long.

We definitely bought the right TT.

We also got to see the new 2109S with all LED lights, rounded roof, integrated ducts in the ceiling, & chrome wheels. It looks really good, makes it really hard not to consider trading.
