Newmar factory

Next we traveled to northern Indiana to the Shipshewana area. It is Indiana Amish country and we were here last year when we bought the Lambright recliners for our motorhome. Since we were so close, we decided to take the tour of the Newmar factory so we could see how they make their motorhomes - we almost bought a Newmar before we found out Tiffin Allegro Bus. We found there is a lot of difference in the production of the Newmars and the Tiffins.

Above is a diesel pusher - notice they use fiberglass insulation in both the walls and roof.

Here the fiberglass outer wall is applied over the fiberglass.
