Great tour! Look things over and ask questions about any new procedures/changes in manufacturing the 2014's, and report back. We will be happy to hear what's new.

The cost of the coffee is built into the price of the "life is good" shirts at the company store.

Lucky you ! Also, please report back on product changes (Oops! I'm supposed to say "improvements") in the 2014 models.

Was a really cool tour! A shame you are not allowed to take pictures inside.

The only new thing I saw was the new glass (marked experimental ) really thin already tinted. I have a 72 so, many things have changed. But was really cool to see them put together. Almost like having backstage passes to awesomeness!

If you want pictures, order a new trailer. They will let you take pictures of your trailer during the build...

If the trailer was more camp ready I would. Working through the corroded tail and backup lights, redoing floor and bedding. Can visitors stop without camping?
