Getting to airport from factory

Dropping coach off at mothership for service. Won't have toad. Need to get from factory to South Bend Airport (and vice a versa on pickup), anyone have insight on options?

Thanks. j

Did you try calling the factory and see if they have any suggestions?

You might ask customer service. Not that they'll offer transportation, but you're probably not the first to face that challenge. They may offer a solution that has worked well in the past for others.

Take care,
Stu

There are quite a few companies/individuals that provide transportation in South Bend due to Notre Dame. They usually are providing student transportation between SB and Chicago airports but I assume they would travel east too.

Let me know if you are interested and I can send you the list that ND parents use.

Thanks for your responses.

I had tried Uber, but no coverage. Never used Lyft, will investigate.
Factory had not ideas.
Google did not help either, can get anything towed but not so much for rides.
Will check with Hampton Hotel today, they usually have this type of info.

There are some car services that service the airport, checking with them. From AP to factory looks a bit simpler than other direction.

Why not bring to Toad and make an adventure out of it? Lot's to do and see in the northern corridor of Indiana.

Here's a few suggestions:

RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkart

Many of the RV manufactures in the area provide factory tours

Those who are also into cars, Kalamazoo Michigan is about a hours drive north and there is the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners. Also about an hour away is the Auburn Cord Dusenburg Museum in Auburn, Indiana.

Also in Kalamazoo is the Air Zoo aviation museum at the airport.

A day trip to Chicago. Just drive over to the South Bend Airport and hop on the South Shore Line train. That will take you right down town. On the way in, there are stops along the museum campus which contains both the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Science and Industry. Access Shed Aquarium from here as well. For the Foodies, well you already know about Chicago!

We are in process of selling toad, so does not look to be an option. Although, with Ram's inability to load and ship our new truck from Mexico, timing may change. We shall see.

We have made the trek to the motherships before, both Entegra and Newmar. Other than Rise and Roll, not looking for any stops.

There areseveral good Mom and Pop general restaurants in Middlebury, and just a short drive to the south, there are very creditable Asian restaurants and south of the border places too.

Never had a problem finding good food in and around Middlebury.... not right down the block, but also pretty good options. Rise-N-Roll certainly does not exhaust all the options!

Car

Our coach is in Middlebury, and we are flying in on Feb 11th to pick it up to SBN. I looked at Uber and decided renting a car for 24hours was cheaper or about the same. I have already picked up a car there before in the coach and it wasn't a big deal when you have to drop it or pick it up. The cell phone lot was a bit tight maneuvering.

It’s old school but South Bend shows to have a taxi service. The website is creatively called Southbendtaxi.com

Hello. There are a couple of different taxi services in the area. As mentioned above, South Bend Taxi Services and Louie's Limo and Taxi located in Elkhart.
