Factory Tours

Just wondering is anyone has taken any memorable factory tours? Doesn't have to be RV related, but that helps!

Our list includes:
Fleetwood
Freightliner
Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream
Vermont Teddy Bears

A few more that escape my memory for now.

How about you?

I forgot about the micro beer tours. We did several along with wine making and vineyard tour while I was in Vermont. Must have had to many to drink because I can't remember all of their names now!

I need to get over to Tiffin if they have a tour. Bob Tiffin's brother in law often offered to take me through the factory, but I never took him up on it.

Tiffin has really evolved into a first class operation over the years, and are still family run--with next generation children coming into the business. It all comes down to the line employees--who are proud of their craftsmanship.
