Memorial Day marks the traditional start of the vacation season, so this weekend let us sing the praises of the folding camper trailer, a summertime staple.
This week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made” video takes us to the Fleetwood Camping Trailers, operation of Somersett, Penn., a division of Fleetwood RV. Our tour guide is Joe Pacifico, production manager, who takes obvious delight in walking us through the manufacturing process — from metal forming to wood shaping, the soft goods — curtains, mattresses, etc. — to the finishing and stacking onto trailers for delivery to Fleetwood’s more than 300 dealers.
P.S. Speaking of Fleetwoods, here’s a fine song from 48 years ago.
