Today we visited Forest River RV factory in Elkhart, Indiana. We got to see the production line. They produce 18 RV'S a day. If you order an RV today it will be built sometime in August. I took some pictures and some video. Unfortunately, the video is better than the pictures, but I can't post video on the blog. I'll put it on my Facebook page.
You cannot believe how fast and coordinated these guys work on the assembly line. It was like watching a ballet in fast motion. They work by the piece so they want to get the product out as fast as possible. They only take about a 15 minute lunch and then they get back at it. I counted at least six teams of workers between 5 and 10 members each. There are inspection engineers posted at various spots on the assembly line assuring quality.
We are staying at a KOA tonight and we are doing our laundry. There are mosquitoes here so I am stuck inside the van. I probably conservatively have gotten about 50 bites and I always run for cover when I see any mosquitoes. Judy is outside and has no bites...NO bites. Not one bite this whole trip. I also swell up like a big ballon. I stay swollen and itchy for days. This is so unfair. Judy is outside mocking me.
