Glad you asked Tom, because I was wondering too. I imagine something electrical, but I can't decipher anything. I just have a converter/battery charger though. Pretty sure Robert will tune us in.

Charlie,

We did visit last November, and it was impressive. Now, about all I remember from the whirlwind tour was that every workstation was organized, had specific tasks, and that the trailers progressed on an almost daily basis from station to station.

They didn't have the fabric dome tent-rooms up (or we didn't see them), and since then, after the 15 was dropped, they appear to have a much higher output, so I'm guessing that the process has been optimized even more.

I would love to see a stop-action or time-lapse video of a trailer from start to finish.

Thanks, Pat.
After we sent in our signed build list (the last of monthly re-iterations of the constantly changing list), I thought I could sit calmly and wait until the hatch date. But, Nooooooo. I can't stand it.

Guess I'll go reorganize the garage, or paint the house, or Google-street-view our entire 1st planned trip, or

While I appreciate you moving the hair comments to another thread Donna, post #3 on that thread was a response to a build question, and its on topic here.
