Even though Mike's Custom Painting did extensive work on my coach, we never got over to the paint shop (wish we did) nor the cabinet shop. In fact, all I saw BOTH times was building 58(?) assembly. I shouldn't say "all" because I'd need another several tours to spot everything.

One tour guide was "Chuck". He seemed most interested in chassis' at the early stage, especially FRED. The 2nd guide was "Jake" who took us right to the internal components (I assumed that was his specialty). I got little opportunity to mingle with the workers as we were herded right along, though with ample opportunity to question everything. The factory had gone home before the 2nd tour started.

I recommend that every owner take an opportunity to tour the factory if you can. It will give you a whole new insight & respect into how your coach is designed & built. ...and the complimentary ice cream sunday at the end is a real treat.

Ha Ha Ha, just kidding about the ice cream!

WOW, thats alot of bed in a motorhome!

Personally I never really understood needing that much bed at home let alone on the road (I would thing the added floorspace would be better), but to each their own. I stand corrected.

The best way to get a tour of the factory is with the Gulf Streamers when the Back Home Rally is held. We get to see more of the plant than the regular tours do.

Also, we get steak and shrimp after the tour served at the Country Club, get to play games, golf and then have entertainment.

I am not joking, we really do.

I got to shower at the country club. I got the cleaning lady to open up the day center in the evening. ...and, I learned that if you need security in the evening, drive around the "corporate house" a couple times - the white security trucks come out of the woodwork to see what's going on.

And, oh yeah, I got to meet Ashley, the receptionist, after spending so many hours in the lobby.

My wife likes the coffee machine in the day center and putting together puzzles there. Yep, I imagine being around the corporate offices in the evening hours would bring out the security.

Another way is to accidently turn in the driveway and go all the way back to the country club with your coach the first time you go there.
Yep, been there done that. Good way to get an escort to the RV sites to make sure one doesn't get lost again.
