Factory tour well worth it.

The factory tour was a unique experience. I've been to Boeing Aircrafts Factory, Harley Davidson Factory and various other industry factories. All very interesting to watch things being built not as cathartic and personal as watching your rig being built.
We start the the tour with a group of people all following the tour guide. They all start out where you stay behind the "yellow line". We walk past beginning stages of assembly with commentary on the process. (The way they get rid of debris is interesting).
All the rigs from Bay Stars to King Airs have shiny white sides and grey drab front and rear caps as they start to transform thru the assembly line.
We turn a corner and then BAM there's our rig. Slide outs at this stage were not in so it's interior was open for full view. When it's your rig they allow you to talk with the crew, go inside and just plain be in the way like kids in a candy store.
We jump back with the tour group and move on, now more excited than before.
The morning tour ends and we decide to do the tour again in the afternoon.
After the 2nd tour we now can't wait to see the next days progress. By the conclusion of the 4th go round it was amazing to see the interior getting completed, all lights on, doors on cabinets, TV's being setup and cleaning going on. At one point there was 8 people in our rig.
Finally we felt it was best to get out of there way and we proceeded to leave and head out of the building with rest of group. Just as we were about to leave there was an issue that was brought to our attention. We went back to our rig and reviewed with Newmar team. The situation was resolved and we were so glad we were there and impressed how it was handled.
We left the factory and headed home totally pumped yet also wiped out from the experience.
