So what’s your decision? I really can’t imagine owning anything less than an Oliver. Oh wait, that’s everything else.

I’ve seen this video before. It was good to watch it again to really appreciate the time and care that goes into building an Oliver. In addition to the near wreckless speed of the workers I see a lot of safety issues. I wouldn’t want to be associated with that operation. Mike

I love the furniture chute, where the stapled together, raw pine cabinets come crashing down. No wonder they fall apart while towing. Scary stuff, I thought at times that the video was speeded up, do they really spin an entire frame assembly that fast, and do workers actually RUN?

 

In fact, I would run, not walk, from a job like that. I would rather live under a bridge than do that kind of mindless, intense assembly work. I wonder what the worker turnover rate is...? Watch and compare how they build classic Capri truck campers, that is the only stick and staple RV worth owning.

I once had a neighbor who worked for a Mobil Home Manufacture years ago and they called them, "Wobbly Boxes", now I know why.
