Look at em go.

Pretty interesting even if it is a few years old.


Happy Motoring

Scary video! You could put your order into the factory in the morning and pickup your new trailer at the end of the shift!

Lots of nails and staples. It literally starts working itself apart at the end of the video, 6 hours after it was nailed together.

Not for me

The video sums up why I went to a Fiberglass camper. Not interested in owning any more "sitcky's" and their inherent maintenance problems.

They've got their process down to a science, and the speed is impressive. That's the only thing that's impressive.

Thanks for posting, Bob!
It's hard to believe Jayco is so proud of the build process, that they made a video of it. The narrator could double as an investigative reporter, exposing the construction flaws of the industry......Shocking!

I too was amazed that they showed some of the inferior practices used in building this trailer.

After seeing this, and compare that it takes at least three weeks to build your Escape trailer, you know why an Escape ts more expensive, but its also a quality product.

Reminds me of the pit stop guys at the races changing tires.
Never in doubt, often wrong.....

As fast as they are cranking those out times other manufacturers, all I could think of was where will we find camping space in the years to come?
