It’s 10am on Day 4 at Newmar and we already have a fiberglass roof, air conditioners, and a bunch of furniture and cabinets. Now they are installing the BIG slideout room, then windows and interior trim molding.
The 1pm visit shows us that the coach has almost completed the assembly process, all of the slideout rooms are in and it’s really looking nice. Just a few interior finish projects left for Day 5, then out the door!
Day 5, It’s the last day in assembly. By 10am it is just moving into the last station, we jump in to go for the First Ride (even if it is only 50 feet away)! Now it gets a wheel alignment and some final inspections. Once it leaves the building it will head to paint preparation.
Even though assembly is finished, there is still a lot left to do… Paint, Trim, Awnings, and the list goes on and on. It will take about 2 months to complete the process until we can return to Newmar to pick up our New Home.
Ron has been such a good sport, hanging out with us all 5 days we have decided to give him a real treat and take him to the New York Central Railroad Museum in Elkhart Indiana. It is clearly the highlight of his trip. He sat for an eternity with the museum caretaker, an older, retired gentleman who obviously enjoys the railroad world as much as Ron does.
We now return to Massachusetts for the long two month slumber while visions of sugar plums dance in our heads!
