Cool Stuff Being Made: Fleetwood RV

By May 26, 2007Cool Stuff Being Made

fw_logo.gifMemorial 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.

As always, thanks go to our friends at PCN, the Pennsylvania Cable Network, for providing the video. To see this week’s “Cool Stuff Being Made” please click here.

P.S. Speaking of Fleetwoods, here’s a fine song from 48 years ago.
